Severance is an entrancing novel that drew me in with short-and-sweet chapters. “Just one more chapter” I would find myself saying as I read more than I intended in any given sitting.
What interested me in Severance was the promise of another Station Eleven-like storyline. While this novel can’t quite live up to the masterpiece that is Station Eleven, it’s still really good and worth a read. If I had one complaint, it would be the pop-culture name-dropping. It’s just too much for me.
Severance is also surreal in the world of Covid. What if Covid broke society more dramatically. Would it go down like this?
