Station Eleven

I don’t tend to read science fiction books, but I started reading Station Eleven and I was hooked. It challenged me to try even more books out of my reading comfort zone ;). The premise of the story is about Georgia flue. The Georgia flue wipes out 99% of the population and the story reveals what becomes of the survivals and the new world after the pandemic. Station eleven describe the “unspeakable years” in which the survivors walk blasted roads in search of civilization; crazed prophets leading murderous cults.

I really loved how the author switched perspectives throughout the book without getting lost and all the pieces fit together so perfectly. I loved the writing style, it was stunning and the plot progressed perfectly. The story follows different characters and I was really captivated by how the characters intertwine in the most unique way as they survive the pandemic. I would really recommend this book.
