Good Morning, Midnight
Good Morning, Midnight | Lily Brooks-Dalton
Augustine, a brilliant, ageing scientist, is fascinated by the stars. For years he has scanned the universe, trying to quantify infinity, to find that first moment in history. When news of a catastrophic event arrives at the remote research centre in the Arctic circle where he works, he elects to stay behind. But shortly after the last airlift departs, Augustine discovers a child - Iris. She rarely speaks but hums an eerie tune. In spite of the observatory's state of the art equipment, Augustine is unable to establish contact with the outside world; all communication has gone dark. Time means very little in deep space. Mission Specialist Sullivan, a divorced astronaut and mother, is aboard the Aether, on its return flight from Jupiter. They are the first human beings to delve this deep into space and it has changed the crew. At last Sully feels at peace with the sacrifices she has made, a tiny and intrinsic piece of a universe beyond her comprehension. But suddenly, inexplicably, the Aether loses all contact with Mission Control. In a vacuum of information, the crew must determine the best course of action. Faced with the cold, barren sweep of the Arctic and the vast silence of space, what will they do next and how will they survive?

I really enjoyed this book. Reminded me a lot of Station Eleven, which is one of my favorite reads in recent years. I wish this one ended differently, felt abrupt, and I thought it was a tad predictable. Overall, beautifully written and was a lovely read.

A cerebral book examining two protagonists. Classified as sci-fi, and principles of science are woven throughout, but also not hard sci-fi. Literary sci? Don't go in expecting action or drama or high-stakes scenarios. You're going to explore some people in polar opposite but extreme scenarios (an astronaut in space, an astronomer in the arctic).

You're also not going to get a tidy explanation at the end. But you'll get a great ending nonetheless.

mreads Great book 😀 5mo

I liked this book, but it was very slow and took me awhile to read. I am glad to have finished it though, but I have more questions than answers now. Makes me wonder if there will be a sequel? But I don‘t think so. I give it 3.5-4 stars because of the slow pacing but overall, it wasn‘t bad. Definitely a book you want to take your time on.

Rarely do I find it difficult to put into words a review for a book. The depth of this book, the vividness of the characters. It was mesmerizing. Following two people, a young astronaut and an old scientific researcher, both who voluntarily left their families, this story is more an examination of how already alone characters cope with the loss of the society they had shut out years before. Labeled a dystopian but so very much more than that.

MaggieCarr Loved this book. 1y

#Aprella #LastToLeave I forgot I used this book for a 🎼prompt last month, but I couldn't help but think of Augustine, an aging astronomer who refuses to evacuate the isolated arctic research center he is stationed at when there's a world-wide catastrophic event. He thinks he's alone there until he discovers Iris, a strange young girl who was left behind. In the event that the world might be ending, I wouldn't want to be the last to leave. 😳

#MarchIntoOz #UnderTheMilkyWay 🚀So the first thing this prompt made me think of was candy bars 🍫😋 but the second was these two books--Good Morning, Midnight, set partially in the silence of space and Aristotle and Dante as they looked at the stars in the desert sky at night and tried to discover the secrets of the universe. I loved the audios of both of these books. 🌠🌌

First book of 2018 is leaving me feeling a little bit on the lonely side. A scientist abandoned in the Arctic, an astronaut adrift in space, a mysterious child who speaks very little, the rest of Earth gone silent after a catastrophic event. A rather perfect book for January, if you ask me.

This post apocalyptic is quiet and unsettling. Auggie is stranded in the Arctic after he refuses to leave during an evacuation. He finds Iris, an 8 yr old girl, stranded with him. Sully and her crew are stranded in space after the command center has gone silent. What kind of disaster could have silenced the whole world? This is a slow burn. So many questions!!

July review catch-up😬I finished the audiobook last week & enjoyed it. Compared to Station Eleven for the post-apocalyptic science-fiction storyline with a lyrical & haunting literary fiction book mixed in. Two stories-Augustine, an older astronomer in the Arctic-alone except for a young girl left behind when other scientists evacuate for an unspecified 'catastrophic event' & Sully, returning from space with her crew when the world goes silent...

DebinHawaii I think Station Eleven edged it out because the story is 'bigger' & grabbed me more, there is a quiet beauty to this story that drew me in. I liked the narrators for the audiobook as well--both brought the words to life. 📚👍 2y

Depending on what I'm working on, I listen to music or an audiobook, have breakfast & coffee & later iced tea & a snack & people & 🐶watch as I work.

The Sullivan sections were a Pick (yeah badass lady astronauts) but the Augustine sections were so-so for me (yep I think I'm done with grumpy old men stories for a while), and I had a bit of trouble with the audiobook narrator, so overall this one's 3.5/5 for me. Very solid debut. It reminded me of Life of Pi, which I didn't expect from the marketing.

Favorite book last month! I love literary fiction with a science-y story, especially one focused on the contemplation of humanity and the vastness of space. It had a similar feel to Station Eleven in that it takes place during the time immediately following an apocalyptic event, but it's not really about that. It's a slow burn of how the characters come to terms with their situation: gripping and poetic until the very last sentence.

ErinBumG It's a similar cover to Station Eleven too! Whoa. 3y
BornReadChicago @ErinBumG yes! They both perfectly align with the themes and story, in very different ways! 3y
