The Leftovers; Tom Perlotta

A mysterious rapture event occurs where  a large part of the world’s population disappears into thin air all at the same time.  The novel follows four members of a typical family in how their “normal” lives evolve after this event.  Again I liked the characters and the mysterious setting.  An expose I would say on American suburbia in the 21st century.  A good read that is an HBO series now that I didn’t have a chance to watch before we got rid of HBO ):
