I was feeling an itch for a new novel. Reviews for this were good, and it was at the top of Amazon’s featured list.
Station Eleven tells the story of a decades-woven tapestry, a microcosm of Western culture, chronicling an interconnected web of broken, perfect, human lives spanning the era before and after the collapse of society. It balances the fantastic and the beautiful real, suspending both in a meta-reflection on art, tattered love, mortality, and the connections between us that never, ever die.
If you’re a fan of good, human stories, or if you’re into the post-apocalyptic genre, do yourself a favor and pick this up. Like, right now.
