Sunday Sentence: Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel

Simply put, the best sentence(s) I’ve read this past week, presented out of context and without commentary.

She had once met an old man up near Kincardine who'd sworn that the murdered follow their killers to the grave, and she was thinking of this as they walked, the idea of dragging souls across the landscape like cans on a string.

Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel


  1. Amazing sentence. Artful, with surprises, like a tiny story to itself within or outside the full novel.

    Thanks for sharing it.

  2. Both highly imaginative and achingly realistic, I was drawn into the world of Station Eleven from the very first page. The novel was completely enthralling and unputdownable, making it without a doubt the best book I've read this year.
