Station Eleven - Kirsten Potter, Emily St. John Mandel

 

There is is so much extraneous story about this actor's life and people connected to him! Why?? It's so unnecessary and aggravating.

 

We're in the collapse with our leads story going, she's looking at a book about the actor's life then it's a chapter excerpting the book, then it's back in time to his second ex-wife letting a friend of his know about the book, then it's about the friend's feelings on the book, then it's the friend interviewing a random secretary about her boss for his job THAT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH ANYTHING AND YET GOES ON AND ON AND ON.

 

WHO

 

FUCKING

 

CARES?!?!

 

What relevance does this have to the story??

 

Now the chapters are all over the place in the present and the past and it's so annoying! This book had so much potential.
