The Leftovers - Tom Perrotta 3.5 stars. Perrotta's writing is as good as ever - I enjoy his observations of suburban, everyday life. He attempted something unusual with the book, and I'm glad for it, but it was somewhat depressing. If you're going to write about huge numbers of people disappearing from earth, of course it's not going to be happy, and he does a good job really imagining what that might be like. I just felt vaguely dissatisfied at the end, maybe because there were so many characters that I never felt I knew any of them well. There was a reasonable amount of closure for each character, which I appreciated.
