#BookReview Leave the World Behind by by Rumaan Alam

A magnetic novel about two families, strangers to each other, who are forced together on a long weekend gone terribly wrong.

My Review

I found the first chapter of this book a little boring since it talked about an average family and their road trip to a secluded holiday destination. I stuck with it and gradually the pace picked up a little, although it never really reached a point where I couldn't put it down. I like what the author was trying to convey, and the prose was appealing to me, but the abrupt ending left me feeling short-changed. I realise this was planned and intended, but still, it left me a bit disgruntled! I would recommend this book if you like something completely modern that talks about your average US family and their life experiences.
