Station Eleven – Emily St. John Mandel

Rating : 3.0/5

Fifteen years after the mass fall of civilization, the remaining survivors continues to live in a society of ruins. The story skips back and forth about the different life of people before and after the epidemic. A novel of art, memory, and ambition, Station Eleven tells a story about the relationships that sustain us, the ephemeral nature of fame, and the beauty of the world as we know it.

I expected nothing and knew nothing about this book when I decided to read this book because it was a goodreads February read. It has a very confusing plot at first and I still can’t get it all absorbed halfway. It was creepy though how history repeats itself. That people are always using religion or beliefs to get some sort power. Not all, most of them start that way. And how people survived day by day without knowing where their life was going or how it would end. And after closing the book a lot of things got through my mind. Like even with the greatest medical technology and inventions as of today or in the future, are we always ready for a fortuitous event like this?
