This book is the one I’ve come closest to loving since reading “The Goldfinch.” Don’t get me wrong – they are nothing alike, except in their execution. “Station Eleven” too is super strong in its telling. It is focused, believable, paced incredibly well, and weaves together decades with strong, yet seamless sutures. Rather beautiful.
It’s about a nomadic group of Shakespearean actors who wander from town to town along the Great Lakes. They are survivors of a pandemic which wiped out civilization as we know it. What’s so refreshing about this take on a post-apocalyptic world is that it mainly focuses on the aftermath.
