Azrevread wrote:There were lots of unexpected plot twists in the novel.. The novel was compelling because the stories relating to the different characters happened before and after the devastating event. I rate the story at 3 out of 4 stars, and plan to read it again when I have more time. I would recommend Station Eleven to readers who like reading science fiction short stories or dystopian novels.

I have not read the book and after a long thought I will not be reading it. It seems like your typical.

I've read Station Eleven, and I enjoyed it. I appreciated the emphasis on characters' emotions rather than the usual action or horror. I did think there were a few too many flashbacks; I wanted to read more about the characters' post-plague lives.

Of course, living through a real pandemic does beg the question of how plausible the Goergia Flu is. Even the Black Death wiped out "only" about a third of Europe's population, as opposed to over 90 percent. It also took a lot longer than just a few weeks, too.
