    Station Eleven

    Everyday writes describe the world objectively. Better writers present the world from the writers perspective but still objectively. Great writers transcend the readers reality and envelope him in their subjective domain. I lived several lives during several timeframes and several locations in Station Eleven . Brilliant.

    This book is excellent

    Truly makes you think about what is and what could be. A real page turner. I couldn't put the book down. I was in total awe with details and places in the book

    Pretty good

    Very interesting story and told in a unique way. A flu wipes out most of the world, and unlike many apocalyptic novels, it focuses more on what happens after that. The pace is of the story is steady throughout, but I didn't feel the end was climactic enough. Overall, a very good book though.

    Best book I've read in 5 years

    I picked up Station Eleven on a whim one day, and, equally 'whim-ly' I brought it on a vacation. This is one of those books that comes along every once in a while that makes you realize why books are so amazing and important, and what a really good book can do for you. To put it mildly, I sat on a plane and walked through the airport and wouldn't put it down - not once, not even to check in for a flight. Station eleven is about a flu pandemic that effectively ends the world. However, instead of it being a dark or depressing post apocalyptic work (which let's be real I also love) it's a dark(ish) but also eerily hopeful and certainly beautiful book about a group travelling 15 years after the fact. They have dubbed themselves 'the traveling symphony' and travel around the Great Lakes area performing Shakespeare, because, in their words, 'Survival is insufficient.' It fast forwards and reverses continually in time, centred around the story of one Arthur Leander, who dies on stage as King Lear the last night in Toronto before the world falls about their ears. To describe this book as anything less than perfection is to do it a disservice.

    Station 11

    A beautiful yet haunting story by a writer who has found a story telling style that is truly Canadian.
