Station Eleven

Emily St. John Mandel

Station Eleven

In Station Eleven, a mysterious illness wipes out much of the population - and the few that remain are left to make sense of it all. One group puts together a travelling theatre troupe, performing Shakespearean plays across the wasteland.

The audiobook version of Station Eleven is read by Kirsten Potter. 


Excerpt:

No more Internet. No more social media, no more scrolling through litanies of dreams and nervous hopes and photographs of lunches, cries for help and expressions of contentment and relationship-status updates with heart icons whole or broken, plans to meet up later, pleas, complaints, desires, pictures of babies dressed as bears or peppers for Halloween. No more reading and commenting on the lives of others, and in so doing, feeling slightly less alone in the room. No more avatars.
