Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel is a bold vision of a dystopian
future, frighteningly real, perfect for fans of Margaret Atwood's
The Handmaid's Tale. What was lost in the collapse: almost
everything, almost everyone, but there is still such beauty. One
snowy night in Toronto famous actor Arthur Leander dies on stage
whilst performing the role of a lifetime. That same evening a
deadly virus touches down in North America. The world will never be
the same again. Twenty years later Kirsten, an actress in the
Travelling Symphony, performs Shakespeare in the settlements that
have grown up since the collapse. But then her newly hopeful world
is threatened. If civilization was lost, what would you preserve?
And how far would you go to protect it?

When I read books I am looking for truth, and I feel that Emily St John Mandel has touched on a truth that we all feel, this dystopian depiction highlights is on my all time favourite list.
