    Book Review Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel

    I loved this book. I had added this book to my list ages ago, finding it on a must read 2017 list. But it took forever for it to show up available on Kindle and I had forgotten about it.

    But wow. Worth the wait. One of my favorite reads so far this year.  Another book I expect to see become a movie.  But read the book – don’t wait for the movie.

    Mandel creates a cast of likeable characters with a variety of interests and histories including a wide range of ages, talents, abilities, ethnicities, genders and economic backgrounds. These characters unwillingly become entwined when the entire earth is subject to a pandemic flu.  The flu ends the world as we know it and kills 99% of the population.

    Whoa say what?  And I loved this book?  I truly did.  Frightening because it’s very believable, captivating because you feel for the characters, frightening because it’s plausible, well-written with an interesting and well thought out plot development and oh did I mention Frightening??

    My husband read this book and also loved it.  The funny thing is if I had been told the plot of this book I may not have read it.  But I am really glad I did. A perfect mix of sci-fi, drama, mystery and suspense.

    Go read Station Eleven! Five Stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
