"The Leftovers is, simply put, the best Twilight Zone episode you never saw."--Stephen King, New York Times Book Review "[Perrotta's] most mature, absorbing novel, one that confirms his development from a funnyman to a daring chronicler of our most profound anxieties and human desires...Leavened with humor and tinged with creepiness, this insightful novel draws us into some very dark corners of the human psyche."--Washington Post

    I really enjoyed the discussion, despite the fact that the book was not my favorite. All of those attending gave insightful input, and I enjoyed meeting them all.

    Group,

    I, too, will not be joining you tonight to discuss The Leftovers. I enjoyed the book but also felt that it could have been deeper and more probing. I agree with Jamie that the end seemed rushed.

    Hope to see you next month.

    Sorry that I have to cancel last minute - sick child. Enjoyed the book, interesting change of pace for me. I felt that the ending was a little rushed, as if the writer had run out of steam and wasn't sure what to do next, so he just wrapped things up quickly.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
