I received an Advance Readers' Edition as part of the Goodreads First Reads program.
"The Leftovers" is an interesting study of group dynamics and the effects of societal pressure. It is a thoughtful, yet subtle, examination of what life would be like for those left behind on Earth. Nice character development. Laced with dry wit. And it was not preachy as I feared it might be. Though I wish the author had maintained the level of tension he created in the Prologue. Overall a good read.
