Station Eleven - Emily St. John Mandel


I could not put this book down. As a lover of apocalyptic/ post-apocalyptic fiction, it made a nice change to read a book that wasn't about Zombies or about a far in the future dystopia/utopia. This felt like a truly realistic representation of what would happen if a pandemic were to hit the world right now, and it was gripping.

As with any book that takes the narrative voice of multiple characters, there's always certain characters whose chapters drag. This book was no exception, but I enjoyed the generational differences portrayed, the link between all of the characters and the juxtaposition of pre and post pandemic world.

A truly great, and quick, read. Would recommend to everyone.
