Leave The World Behind-Rumaan Alam

A nice summer vacation to the country is what a family of four needs. So Amanda and Clay take their young daughter and teenage son to a country oasis. Their vacation seems to be perfect when the owners of the vacation home show up in the middle of the night claiming there was a major blackout in New York City so they came home to be safe. Needless to say Amanda and Clay’s trip seems to have been ruined by the couple’s overly dramatic reaction when strange things start happening around them. Maybe the homeowners aren’t as dramatic as it seemed and quite possibly Amanda, Clay and their children could be in very real danger.

Leave The World Behind is 241 pages long and took me two days to read.

I’m giving this book a 2.5 out of 5. I really enjoyed this book at first but there is a part towards the end that involves teeth that is a HUGE phobia of mine that I couldn’t get over. I think this book is worth the read but it just wasn’t my taste and I was super bummed with the abrupt ending.
