Station Eleven, by Emily St. John Mandel

  • Title:  Station Eleven
  • Author:  Emily St. John Mandel
  • Borrowed from DC Public (Kindle Book)
  • Started:  1/20/2015
  • Finished:  2/4/2015 
Shortly after I finished "The 39 Steps" I started reading "Abominable" by Dan Simmons.  Made it more than halfway through that novel before I had to admit I wasn't enjoying it, and shouldn't torture myself just because I hate to leave a book half-read.
So I move onto the book for this post, "Station Eleven."  A post-apocalyptic novel, but not like any I'd ever read.  This wasn't the struggle for survival with roving bands of outlaws.  Told through several voices, going between past (pre-flu) and present (post-flu) it was a strangely enchanting book.  Not sure how else to put it, but I thoroughly enjoyed it.
