Station Eleven - Emily St. John Mandel - A Short Summary and Review

A short summary of the book Station Eleven:

Bringing Shakespear to society, after the flu.

My favorite Emily St. John Mandel quote from the book:

"There is nothing to be gained in watching the shipwreck."

Questions to ponder while reading Station Eleven:

Is survival insufficient?

Who would you be?

My thoughts on Station Eleven:

I think I would follow Frank.

Shakespeare trumps the apocalypse.

Book recommended by the bartender, I am very glad I left a good tip.
