Station 11

Emily St. John Mandel's Station 11 is an excellent take on the post apocalyptic novel; an intricately crafted set of interwoven stories that span the decades before and after an influenza type disease wipes out most of humanity. It was recommended to me by Anna, who is now my official Cultural Curator due to the consistent quality of her recommendations. I won't go into the plot, since it is a delight to watch it unfold as you read, but it is far and away the most gentle  and eloquent post apocalyptic novel I've read.
