really liked it

I've only read five other books by Shirley, so I'm no expert on his entire oeuvre but the tone of the prose seemed quite different than his others. My impression was that he was so taken with the ideas in the story that he didn't want to waste a lot of time crafting the sort of sharply elegant sentences I had come to expect from him.
Which was fine by me! I loved the idea of this book from the first italicized paragraphs! It was, frankly, a refreshment for the soul.
I would love to see a sequel that follows both the left behind group and the renewed people on the new future earth...that would be a GREAT book!
