"Station 11" by Emily St. John Mandel is a book written about the impacts on the world by a pandemic, similar to the one we are currently experiencing in 2020. In the book, a disease called the Georgian Flu spreads from people to people and eventually leads to a point where civilization falls. The author writes from many different perspectives from before and after the pandemic, through characters such as Miranda, Arthur, Jeevan, and Kirsten. Miranda and Arthur are used to show "normal life" before the pandemic, Jeevan experiences the start of the pandemic and watches civilization fall, and Kirsten is from the future showing the impacts the pandemic had on the word. I think this book is a great read and definitely gives us perspective on the coronavirus pandemic that the world is going through right now.
