So anybody read Station Eleven?
I've had not one, but two friends tell me independently that they felt "suckered" into reading this book, cause it's "not really great science fiction like so many people are gushing," but they forgave it on merits of being a "beautiful story."
Aside from the Star Trek quote, I really liked it too, and didn't feel at all cheated by not receiving detailed descriptions of the pandemic. As far as post-apocalyptia goes, I would give it a sold 7.5. No MaddAddam trilogy but I'm glad to have read it
