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

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

Thanks to @Lindy for putting this book on my #ReadersRadar #SetInCanada told through multiple POVs, we learn about Astra a spirited woman born on a commune. Each chapter shares a glimpse of Astra‘s development from an independent 6yr old to eventually an impassioned 60 year old. #PoP22 #ConstellationInTitle

Megabooks I‘ve apparently stacked this already! 2mo
Cortg Ooh, communes are always so intriguing! 2mo
Lindy Glad to hear you enjoyed it! 2mo

This book finished my 50 book reading challenge! Yay! I first heard about this series on @annebogel 's "What Should I Read Next" podcast and to my delight this series is set in Canada! It's my first real foray into the mystery genre and I'm hooked! This is the second one in the series and though I found this one a little predictable apparently this series matures nicely in the third book. I'll let ya'll know :) #nslittens #setinCanada
