“Station Eleven” by Emily St. John Mandel

★★★★☆

stationelevenhcus2Station Eleven is the story of the post-apocalyptic world after the “Georgia Flu” wipes out a massive amount of people. The story flashes back and forth from before the flu, to years after the flu devastated the world. There are also many different storylines woven through the book, which I absolutely love–seeing how the characters are all related or came together eventually.

Another thing that I was really excited about in Station Eleven is that most of the post-apocalyptic world stuff happens in Michigan, which is one of my favorite places. It was easy to relate to the places, the weather and the general atmosphere being described because I’ve been there.

The audiobook was especially awesome, the narrator was engaging and easy to listen to. I really did not enjoy parts of this book, but others I absolutely adored. No wonder this book is so popular. I just wish I had picked it up earlier! So here’s my recommendation for you: Pick this one up–before the world ends!

Purchase the book here.
