Station Eleven: A novel

Station Eleven - Emily St. John Mandel I shouldered through when I really should have set this one aside. It's not worth it, actually. This author could be groomed to become a good one, she's just not quite there yet.

And I had to laugh out loud when one of the characters, "... went down to the river to fill the water jugs with Jackson..."

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

It would make more sense to just fill them with water. *snort* so that one line made up for it hahahaha

Seriously, skip this one and read King's The Stand, as it is thousands of times better.
