Station Eleven: A novel | Emily St. John Mandel
2014 National Book Award FinalistA New York Times BestsellerAn audacious, darkly glittering novel set in the eerie days of civilizations collapse, Station Eleven tells the spellbinding story of a Hollywood star, his would-be savior, and a nomadic group of actors roaming the scattered outposts of the Great Lakes region, risking everything for art and humanity. One snowy night Arthur Leander, a famous actor, has a heart attack onstage during a production of King Lear. Jeevan Chaudhary, a paparazzo-turned-EMT, is in the audience and leaps to his aid. A child actress named Kirsten Raymonde watches in horror as Jeevan performs CPR, pumping Arthurs chest as the curtain drops, but Arthur is dead. That same night, as Jeevan walks home from the theater, a terrible flu begins to spread. Hospitals are flooded and Jeevan and his brother barricade themselves inside an apartment, watching out the window as cars clog the highways, gunshots ring out, and life disintegrates around them. Fifteen years later, Kirsten is an actress with the Traveling Symphony. Together, this small troupe moves between the settlements of an altered world, performing Shakespeare and music for scattered communities of survivors. Written on their caravan, and tattooed on Kirstens arm is a line from Star Trek: Because survival is insufficient. But when they arrive in St. Deborah by the Water, they encounter a violent prophet who digs graves for anyone who dares to leave. Spanning decades, moving back and forth in time, and vividly depicting life before and after the pandemic,this suspenseful, elegiac novel is rife with beauty. As Arthur falls in and out of love, as Jeevan watches the newscasters say their final good-byes, and as Kirsten finds herself caught in the crosshairs of the prophet, we see the strange twists of fate that connect them all.A novel of art, memory, and ambition,Station Eleventells a story about the relationships that sustain us, the ephemeral nature of fame, and the beauty of the world as we know it.

⭐️⭐️ I‘m sad to report that this book fell a little short for me. The beginning started so strong, and Mandel is clearly talented; the ending just felt so rushed to me, and there were SO many questions that I just felt were left unanswered. 😓 This book is hugely popular, and generally well-received and I usually LOVE dystopian novels, but this one just didn‘t do it for me, and I really REALLY wanted to love it.

marleed Same reading experience for me. I think it may have been timing on my part and the other books awaiting me for this month. I wanted to like it more too. 17h

“A memory from early childhood, before the collapse: sitting with a friend on a lawn, a game where they closed their eyes and concentrated hard and tried to read one another‘s minds. She never entirely let go of the notion that if she reached far enough with her thoughts she might find someone waiting, that if two people were to cast their thoughts outward at the same moment they might somehow meet in the middle.”

This book deserved better from me. I was determined to read it in 2019 and time was getting short so I went in. When my head is in the right place a dystopian story can rank among my favorite reads. I liked the concept of the Georgian Flu, the location, and the writing but didn‘t connect with the characters. I hope to revisit later.

TheHeartlandBookFairy Please do revisit it! I read it a year ago when it was our NEA Big Read book. I didn't expect to love it, I'd only hoped to like it and in the end it made it into my top five (out of more than 130 books) for the year! 1w
marleed @TheHeartlandBookFairy Oh thanks, I will. I almost chose pick as I was posting this because I just know I didn‘t give myself the space to sink into the characters. I really liked the premise. Even today with all our concerns with what devisive politics could do to our future - there is always the possibility of a pandemic! (edited) 1w
TheHeartlandBookFairy @marleed, exactly! What was Erie was that I finished the book while flying back home from vacation. We ended up being stuck on the tarmac for almost an hour and I was at the part of the book that was taking place in the abandoned airport. When I arrived home, I had no internet and it took about 24 hours for the cable company to figure it out. And the whole time this was all going on I could only think about the book and what happened lol 😂 1w

Arthur Leander, Hollywood actor, had a heart attack during a production of King Lear. A flu pandemic arrives and civilization as we know it comes to an end. Kirsten Raymonde and The Traveling Sympathy dedicate themselves to keeping the remnants of art and humanity alive. They encounter a violent prophet who will threaten the band‘s existence. Post apocalyptic book and not in my comfort zone and there didn't seem to be much point of the story.

readingjedi I didn't really feel this one either 🤷🏼‍♀️ 2w
kricheal Thank you for writing this review! I read this three(?) years ago and everyone was giving it RAVE reviews and I still don't understand what was so great about it. I'm glad I'm not the only one! 1w
EadieB @kricheal Your welcome! I listened to audio as it was marked as one of the best books of the year. Afterward, I said, “What the heck was that all about?” Different strokes for different folks, I guess! We don‘t all have to like it just because others said it was good! @readingjedi (edited) 1w

I really enjoyed this book! It was quite different from anything I‘ve read - format wise. There‘s no plot that I figured out, it‘s more a revelation of facts and occurrences and what happens in post-Georgian flu world to a specific collection of people. I don‘t know how else to explain it. The characters are compelling. The writing thought provoking! I suspect I‘ll be thinking of this book for quite some time... 4 ⭐️s

"I was in the hotel," he said finally. "I followed your footprints in the snow." There were tears on his face.
"Okay," someone said, "but why are you crying?"
"I'd thought I was the only one," he said.

This haunted me after I read it, which of course was right before bed. I imagined surviving some end-of-times event and not seeing another living person for 100 days. Imagine that first sighting, that first connection. Disbelief. Pain. Relief.

For a #postapocalyptic novel, the plot of #StationEleven felt fresh. It focused less on the horrors of the new world and more on the beauty, tenderness, and interconnectedness of #humanity. I often considered how I'd feel in similar circumstances (both before and after the Flu). I loved that it was largely set along #LakeMichigan and in an #airport! Highly recommend to anyone who enjoys this genre. #airplanes #pandemic #fiction #fame #survival

I am in the minority with this one. I didn‘t love it but I didn‘t hate it. The narrative alternates between before and after the pandemic. It is a study on life and relationships, choices made and their affect on ourselves and others and how we survive in the memories of those who knew us as our actions carry on in a future without us. With all the ingredients for a book I should have loved, this one just jumped around too much for my liking.

Bookish Song Nr. 3: All I Want Is Love by A Great Big World

I used to skip this song whenever it popped up on my Shuffle mode, until one day I happened to listen to it. And in no time I was back on tour with the Travelling Symphony. I saw them playing, I saw their past and their way through this new world. The whole atmosphere is just so fitting ❤️

More, please!

I want this to turn into an entire series. I want a vignette of loosely connected ppl living in a country made up of thousands of islands, like Indonesia. And another for those in the Great White North of Canada. Another for the International Space Station who watched all the lights go out.

I don‘t usually read fanfic but in this case I say BRING IT ON!

I love when authors write complex, 3 dimensional villains. I really, truly appreciate the small ounce of humanity that is afforded to The Prophet at the end, reinforcing the idea that no human is entirely good nor entirely bad; that we‘re all shaped by our circumstance and how much pure luck has to do with where we end up in life.

"Because survival is insufficient."

Originally, I thought this was just another run-of-the-mill dystopian society book (which I'm not knocking, I love this genre). However, Station Eleven has so much more depth than that. It's truly a book about humanity. The storyline jumps back and forth to the time right before a rapid flu kills most people on Earth, and about 15-20 years after the demise.

This is a star book because it really fits into my love for the post apocalyptic world. It is remarkably similar to other oeuvres of the genre but ultimately it‘s story arcs coming together in a powerfully underwhelming way. The important is reduced to trivial and the trivial is recast when the end comes!

Review 2 of 2 😁 I love the cover of this edition 🧡

I found that I enjoyed it just as much as the first time. This time though, rather than enjoying the wonder of what would happen next, and which of the characters it would happen to, I enjoyed the intertwinedness of the characters and their stories. It was cleverly done, and reading it again took away none of the appeal.

I haven't a single negative thing to say about this book. It was perfectly executed.

Read this one along with my 7th grader, who is about halfway through himself. There is a local organized event centered around this novel, and the library was promoting it last time we were there. It just happened to be on my TBR anyway. We didn't get to attend the festival, but it was fun to read the book anyway.

Station Eleven: A novel | Emily St. John Mandel

Pickpick

Set in a future dystopian landscape after a pandemic has decimated most of human civilization, this novel skips back and forth through time exploring the twisting connections, brief encounters, and pure happenstances that make up human existence. Even after all that we think of as comprising human civilization vanishes before our eyes, these things remain, reminding us what it truly means to be alive.

Recommended if you enjoyed The Nix.
