I INHALED @Rumaan’s new book LEAVE THE WORLD BEHIND. I raced to the end, heart pounding, desperate to know how it ended. It’s a beautiful, delicious, terrifying novel. I want to read it again. Preorder now.      source

5/ Leave the World Behind by @Rumaan. Mind-bending. Underlined a line in the middle of the book that sums up the book (and the experience reading it): "Whatever they thought they understood was not wrong but irrelevant." Unsettling, provocative, original.      source

@gamedev_fitness @Rumaan I still think about this book at least once a day and I read it a couple of months back. It sticks with me!      source
