Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel

Station Eleven

Imagine Ebola only a million times worse.  That’s the premise for Station Eleven, an apocalyptic novel of a virus that infects immediately and leaves the patient dead within 48 hours. The author imagines that scenario as a group of virus-free people hole up in an airport trying to survive.  Other groups take over small communities, but a would-be savior establishes a cult that threatens the freedom (and lives) of those that come in contact with him. And lastly, a nomadic group of actors travel throughout the upper midwest, in an attempt to keep the arts alive in the era after the apocalypse.

What a great novel!  It was definitely a page turner, with wonderful character development, setting and narrative. Emily St. John Mandel is to be commended for such a thought-provoking book.
