Mark’s #45: Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel

I’m behind in my reviews, so I’ll keep it short.

This is the story of life before and twenty years after a deadly flu pandemic destroys 99% of the world’s population.  As tiny communities struggle for survival, a small band of traveling actors and musicians put on performances of Shakespeare and classical music.

Overall, It was an interesting read, particularly as the author describes what life would look like without all of the modern luxuries, technologies, and medical advances we have all come to take for granted.  At times, the story was a bit difficult to follow as it jumped back and forth from the future and the past of the lives of several main characters.

3.5/5
