There are many reactions one can have after reading a book. A sense of accomplishment, a greater understanding of the world, joy, incredulousness, sadness, even sheer and utter 'what the hell... what the bloody hell?!'. Station Eleven left me with an uncanny reaction. I raised my arms up high and shouted to whatever God was listening 'At last... my pain, suffering and torment are at an end! May this book return to whatever hell it was spawned from and trouble me no more'.
