Station Eleven
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 civilization’s 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 Arthur’s 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 Kirsten’s 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 Eleven tells a story about the relationships that sustain us, the ephemeral nature of fame, and the beauty of the world as we know it.

#Summer prompts:

1 = Genrebusting
2 = Muslim Author or MC
3 = Book to Movie
4 = Comic/Graphic History (of Hip Hop, but not a novel—I hope this is okay?)
5 = Book Gifted to me
6 = Diverse Middle Grade

Would one of you lovely ladies get back to me if number 4 won‘t do for the prompt? It‘s fully graphic—no large swathes of type.
This season‘s prompts were so difficult for me...sorry I‘m behind.

“No more diving into pools of chlorinated water lit green from below. No more ball games played out under floodlights. No more porch lights with moths fluttering on summer nights. No more trains running under the surface of cities on the dazzling power of the electric third rail. No more cities.”

Twenty years after a deadly virus sweeps out most of Earth's population, a group of musicians and actors travel the post-apocalyptic North America to perform Shakespeare and give concerts to residents of this new world.
Interesting book, interesting world, although I wasn't really satisfied with the ending. Worth a read though.

#MysteryMessageSwap

*This photo hardly does my swap partner justice. I cried when I opened this, for two reasons: 1. Toni, you put so much thought and personal craft into this project...I believe that @TheReadingMermaid would agree with me here, that your gift is like a masterclass in how it should be done—breathtakingly beautiful! & 2. I fear that I did a disservice to my partner, as I could never hope to do anything this precious & meaningful.

gradcat @teebe I didn‘t want to remove anything from the book—I want to leave everything exactly where it is until I reach those points in my reading. So I‘m sorry that my picture doesn‘t show it all off very well. Just know I think it‘s very special, what you did. Also, I‘ve been trying to post b‘day messages, but I don‘t think I have yours in my list—was it the 10th? Anyway, happy, happy belated birthday wishes to you, my friend. 🥰🎉🍰🎁🎂🥂🛍🎀💕🎊♥️ 1mo

This book is both a #BlameItOnLitsy and came highly recommended by another friend- so my hopes were pretty high! And I have to say that I did enjoy this! It‘s post-apocalyptic future in the wake of a devastating virus felt authentic and I liked how the vignettes from the various characters all came together- I wish there had been a bit more though! The audio performance was great- and made for fun #AudioColoring #CliFi #Booked2019

One of my favorites of the year so far. Mandel managed to take nostalgia and encapsulate it in book form. Interesting concept, complex characters, and it‘s generally well-written. It‘s dystopian but not quite science fiction(as it‘s often billed), more literary... sci-fi lite. So I‘d recommend this for anyone who wants to ease into that genre.

I‘m glad I read on and did not bail. This book is more than just about a pandemic or post-apocalyptic. It‘s a story with heart, touching on appreciating things in our lives; of nostalgia; coping with pain; survival and much more. I liked that there‘s a note of hope and how the narratives of several individuals and flashbacks come together at the end. Great read!

Station Eleven is my all-time favorite book. I love the seamless blending of past, present & future. I love “Survival is insufficient.” I have read it either on audio or in print many times.

#AllGoodThings on ST:TNG is not my fav final episode, but it is the one that nicely blends past, present, and future. Q, the omnipotent being that gave humanity a test in the pilot, tells Picard the test was never over, but Picard passes the final test. 🎉🍾

I really enjoyed this book! It is not a straightforward story - there is a lot of jumping around to many different characters & different times, but all centering around a flu pandemic that wiped out 99% of the world‘s population. If you‘re looking for a unique take on post apocalyptic fiction, I highly recommend this one! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Similar to Margaret Atwood, but slightly less depressing.

The novel starts with the on-stage death of a famous actor playing King Lear. As the story jumps back and forth in time, it follows the actor and four people whose lives intersected with his—the child actor who watched him die, the would-be paramedic who tried to save him, his first ex-wife, and his oldest friend as they navigate a world decimated by a virulent flu pandemic.

Transcending the concept of "one" genre, this is a tale of survivors in the post-apocalyptic world through their art (theatre, music, journalism etc.). It makes you think about the value of civilization deeply, because as fictional as it's meant to be it feels this could happen anyday which is terrifying. Fantastic writing!

There was so much to this story; a post-apocalyptic world, the illustrator who spends the years before the end of the world creating a graphic novel, the Hollywood star and his string of failed marriages, Shakespeare, and a Travelling Symphony... That all sounds complex, and weird, but it really isn‘t. I thought this book was beautiful and unusual and I‘m astounded at how all those strands were so carefully and subtly drawn together. I loved it.

TrishB Loved this too 👍🏻 4mo

A plague wipes out most of human existence in this post-apocalyptic novel, but the story doesn‘t focus on that. It‘s more about the importance and the power of art. The audiobook narrator, Kirsten Potter, has a great voice, and she was the perfect choice for this, at times, slow-moving take on the post-apocalyptic genre. Overall rating: 4.14 stars.
