Leave the World Behind

Rumaan Alam is the type of writer that relishes the use of metaphors and comedy to enhance this suspenseful, page turner, and brilliant premised book. When he describes misshapen sneakers the size of bread loaves or the phones worked on them like those bulbous flutes did on cobras you know you are in the hands of a master writer. Brilliant pop culture references ground the novel. But if you are looking for answers to the building mystery this isn’t your type of book. The ambiguous ending gives you a peak into something which I won’t reveal. A fast entertaining read that will leave you breathless, just don’t ask too many questions.
