Left Behind: The Suburban Dead is a novel I was desperate to read ever since discovering it and caught my attention right away thanks to its description which alludes to a strange and unknown virus which intrigued me. Every now and then a reader will come across that one book that blows them away, it is a somewhat generic term, but that is what Left Behind did to me… it blew me away and ever since completing it I have been thinking of its intricate and detailed story and how I need to re-read it! That is when you know book lovers that you have come across an incredible book when you are thinking of it when you have a million things to do. That is why I am already going to recommend Left Behind to you lovely readers, and yes, it may be early on in my review, Left Behind is a novel not to be missed.
Left Behind for me was thrilling, captivating and addictive right from the start and I felt this from beginning to end. Left Behind was captivating to me from the start thanks to the unique premise of the story and the bewitching literature courtesy of the author, T.A. Sorsby who from the start hooked me with his unique story that was unlike anything I have read before. It is rare to find a dystopian novel that is and it is even more challenging to discover a dystopian story that does not rely on gimmicks and ridiculous action sequences!
Left Behind is a thrilling novel that will introduce the reader to the protagonist of the novel, Tiernan Kelly. Kelly is content with his life, he lives in a nice apartment, has a great job and is madly in love and engaged. However, things start to turn bad for Kelly as well as the rest of the Republic as a deadly virus is sweeping through and the effects it has is deadly. The reader will follow Kelly as he tries to navigate through the chaos of the virus which is spreading and the chaos among humans to find his fiancé and stay alive. What follows is a thrilling and captivating novel that should not be missed!
The premise of Left Behind is exceptional, original and unlike anything I have read before. I loved the many themes and elements explored throughout the book and all themes are explored by Sorsby wonderfully, and he does this by lacing these interesting themes throughout the text flawlessly and weaving them with the story. The result of this makes Left Behind a highly addictive and fascinating read that is never once lackluster or predictable. Sorsby really has accomplished the near impossible, Sorsby has managed to write an entertaining, bewitching and flawless story that will perfectly unfold in readers minds like a movie and now that I think about it, why is this book not a movie already!
T.A. Sorsby is a phenomenal writer who knows how to grasp his reader’s attention from the first page. Sorsby instead of writing long, drawn-out builds up which are commonly found in dystopian novels, decides to ditch this approach and thrust his reader into the heart of the story straight away so that the reader is instantly captivated and immersed. I personally love this approach, what is the point of having a long build-up with little excitement? This is only necessary if the author in question can’t develop the characters in the story quickly but with Left Behind, the reader will not encounter this issue because Sorsby instantly develops his characters and makes the reader invest in not only them but also their journey.
Overall Left Behind is a thrilling, compelling and thought-provoking novel that will easily entertain readers for many days and nights and so I, of course, have to award this stellar gem of a book five stars!
