Emily St. John Mandel


Station Eleven

I have read a number of sci-fi and post-apocalyptical books but this one is quite different and special.

King Lear’s production in a theatre in Toronto – what could be more normal?

Arthur Leander dies on the stage as he is performing the role of a lifetime. The story then takes us through the desolation of the effects of Georgia flu.

Other books of this genre look and feel surreal, unbelievable, even ridiculous but this one is totally credible.

Great descriptions of the scenery and a very good insight into people’s minds and behaviours. Everything that I thought at the start wasn’t clear was eventually explained and it all fitted in.

Make sure you have a long journey ahead or a rainy day during holidays, that way you can read without putting the book down.

The only way to read it!
