Station Eleven is a novel written by Emily St.John Mandel that talks about the cause and impact of the Georgia Flu pandemic, which kills most of the population. It explores the lives of many characters that were affected, and describes their connection to the pandemic and how it has impacted their mindset/lives. The way that each chapter overlaps with other chapters makes the book extremely riveting and thrilling the read, as you continuously want to keep reading and find out what has happened to each character. Reading this during the current pandemic was very unsettling, as station eleven( a fiction book) has many similarities that overlap with the covid 19 pandemic such as the way it was handled and the new leaders of power that emerged from them. Although some chapters dragged a little bit, it picked up later in the book. I strongly recommend this\book to anyone as they can make connections and analyze how it relates to our current time period. Age 13+
