What are you recommending?

Station Eleven

What is it?

It is a novel written by Emily St John Mandel

Why have you recommended it?

I recommended Station Eleven because it’s an interesting take on the end-of-the-world genre.

It raises loads of questions about survival and nature, and what place art has in human civilisation. It points out how vital stories are and how important they are to human history, how crucial it would be to preserve them for as long as possible.

The writing is elegant and unique, and the plot is beyond gripping.

Good for zombie/survival fans & readers looking to be challenged, as the structure’s complex, but important to the plot.
