Book 84: Station Eleven, Emily St John Mandel

Thought this was great. Post-apocalyptic tale based around some travelling players, but multi-stranded with gentle interweavings, heading towards a nice resolution which I didn't actually see until right before it, though in retrospect...d'oh. Lovely writing and a great, rather calm, take on what is often so brutal (post-apocalyptic worlds) - reminded me a little of The Road in that sense of calm in a horrible world and a little of David Mitchell in the quality of the interwoven stories (though not quite so convoluted). Anyway, a real winner.
