A literary post-apocalyptic page-turner that makes the mundane feel unlikely and magical, Station Eleven is a story that leaks out into your daily life, coloring the way you see airplanes, smartphones, light switches.  Without glorifying modern civilization, it left me, as Jessie Burton (author of The Miniaturist) put it, "wistful for a world where I still live."

Read this book if you've enjoyed The Hunger Games or The Road;  if you love Shakespeare or The Night Circus; if you've ever daydreamed about a world without technology or if you can't imagine not being able to log on.
