Audio Book Giveaway: "The Leftovers": by Tom Perrotta


We have an audio book of "The Leftovers" by Tom Perrotta to giveaway to someone who leaves a comment on this post saying they would like it.  This is a fiction book on 8 CDs including a bonus interview with the author.  Here is the summary of what it is about:

WHAT IF--WHOOSH, RIGHT NOW, with no explanation--a number of us simply vanished?  Would we think it was the Rapture?  Would others of us go on, one foot in front of the other, as we did before the world turned upside down?

That's what the bewildered citizens of Mapleton, who lost many of their neighbors, friends, and lovers in the event known as the Sudden Departure, have to figure out.  Because nothing has been the same since it happened.

Kevin Garvey, Mapleton's new mayor, wants to speed up the healing process, to bring a sense of renewed hope and purpose to his traumatized community.  Kevin's own family has fallen apart in the wake of the disaster:  His wife, Laurie, has left to join the Guilty Remnant, a homegrown cult whose members take a vow of silence.  His son, Tom, is gone, too, dropping out of college to follow a sketchy prophet named Holy Wayne.  Only Kevin's teenaged daughter, Jill, remains, and she's definitely not the sweet A-student she used to be.  Kevin wants to help her, but he's distracted by his growing relationship with Nora Durst, a woman who lost her entire family on October 14th and is still reeling from the tragedy, even as she struggles to move beyond it and make a new start.
TO ENTER:  If you live in the U.S. and want to enter this giveaway, just leave a comment with your email address so we can contact you if you are the winner.  The winner will be randomly chosen on October 30.

  1. This audio book sounds pretty interesting too! I finally finished The Help (now I think there should be a sequel so we know what happened next) and the other books I had on hold at the library so am getting ready to start my other audio book. I'm planning on listening while on the elliptical in hopes it helps me want to workout. We'll see! Thanks for the opportunity to win this giveaway!
