Sea of Tranquility: A Novel | Emily St. John Mandel

Much has been said about this book and I too loved it. Once again ESJM has created characters who feel so real and human. Their relationships and fears, whether set in the past or the future, feel extra relatable now that we ourselves have just experienced a pandemic. But how Mandel writes about it makes COVID and current times even more scary. Yet I could have read on and on about those characters - in any time or place.

BarbaraBB @KarenUK @Megabooks I really did. I read it almost in one go! (edited) 1mo
Nute Wonderful review, Barbara! Are her last three novels a series or companion reads or not related at all? I have Station Eleven and this book, but not The Glass Hotel. 1mo
BarbaraBB @Nute they are a bit related but you can absolutely read them as stand-alone novels. I would however recommend The Glass Hotel anyway! It‘s very good and some characters return in this book. 1mo
Nute Good to know. I‘m happy for the success of her writing career. Her novels seem to be very well liked. 1mo

I always like to have a book I finish just after midnight on NYE to kick off my reading challenges!

This year it was my last #booked2021 read 🤣. Hubby is also reading it, but not enjoying as much as I did. Not plot driven enough for him.

Cinfhen Love this photo!! Happy New Year, Alisia. BTW: I wasn‘t a big fan of this one, so I‘m “siding”with your hubby. 5mo
Megabooks I enjoyed this, so I‘m siding with you! 👍🏻 5mo

4thhouseontheleft @Cortg Same. And gave me a new perspective on regrets, and how to let some of them go. 5mo
