   Most important book of the 2010s
I've never felt more connected to a book than I have to Station Eleven. I read a library copy and even bought a copy to have and reread. This book is emotional, relevant, and introspective.
   Timely fiction
A very timely account of what the world may be if we aren't able to handle a collapse. A very poignant and riveting story that I couldn't put down.
