Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
It's the end of the world again--this time, it's a flu. It hit America (and the world) quickly and the few remaining survivors are trying to re-build civilization.
That story has been told before, but Mandel tells her story well. It's a fast read--you get to know some characters that you'll care about. There's a traveling group of actors who perform Shakespeare and play classical music, an aging Hollywood star with many ex-wives, a little girl who is given graphic novels, and an ex-paparazzi photographer who decides to become a paramedic. The book covers Ground Zero to Year 15. People survive. And thrive. People who love the arts will love this one!
