Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel

Find in catalogA flight from Russia lands in the United States carrying passengers who are infected with a disease that wipes out 99% of the human population. Life as we know it is over in a matter of weeks. Flash forward 20 years, to a band of traveling musicians and actors who roam the land trying to keep art alive in their post apocalyptic world. It’s an interesting premise, but ultimately the story falls flat in many places. It really has very little to do with art and just seems to ramble along without purpose. A lot of the story line was predictable and in general I found the whole thing to be rather emotionless.
