"Station Eleven" — Emily St. John Mandel


About fifty pages in, I stopped and went to Amazon and put her other four novels on my wait list.

Published in 2014, this compelling story — a National Book Awards finalist that year — is set in a world besieged and destroyed by a fast-moving, lethal plague.

It's so interesting to read just now, when you can stop every so often and compare what's happening in our world with the events depicted in the book.

Read the beginning here.

Great book. The ending had a lot to be desired, but great book.

After this, The Wanderers by Chuck Wendig. Weirdly about a bat virus.

I read both of these within a month of each other.

I'm a long-time lurker of your blog. It's been a part of my Feedly news reader for many years now and I figured it's past time to just say hello.

Your book suggestions are one of the reasons I enjoy your blog so much. Station Eleven has always flickered on the outskirts of my "To-Read" list, but your recommendation clinches it.

Keep up the great work and stay safe.
