Station Eleven

s11I picked up a copy of Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel recently, and it was a book that was hard to put down. Its a post-apocalyptic novel that bounces back and forth between present day and the pandemic that changes the world. The characters are real and intricately interwoven, the writing is superb, and the issues raised will keep you thinking. I’ve read several post-apocalyptic novels in the past (think Cormac McCarthy) and Station Eleven has none of the bleakness and despair of the others.
