  1. Melanie

    Survival is insufficient.Star Trek VoyagerNovels whose premise strips away the world as we know it can be tricky territory They can be innately dramatic, overwrought, didactic and riddled with Big Questions about Life and Death that leave no room for contemplation Think Ayn Rand on her best day.Or they can be like Station Eleven Quiet Dark Elegiac Lit from within like a mysterious firefly Unhurried Steeped in small acts and evocative landscapes Lonely Elegant Radiant Heartbroken Emily St John Ma [...]

    Adult speculative fictionEven since reading The Stand by Stephen King when I was a kid, I ve had a soft spot for apocalyptic plagues that wipe out humanity Er I mean in fiction, of course Station Eleven is in that vein.The Georgia Flu sweeps across the world, killing most of humanity St John Mandel, using beautiful prose and poignant characterization, follows the lives of various survivors, tracing how their lives intersect in a group of entertainers called the Traveling Symphony The thread tha [...]

    Of all of them there at the bar that night, the bartender was the one who survived the longest He died three weeks later on the road out of the city.on the night the world begins to end, a man has a heart attack and dies onstage while performing the lead role in king lear considering that shortly after this, the georgia flu will have killed off 99% of the population and changed the world as we know it forever, it seems unlikely that he would be remembered among so many millions dead but that s t [...]

    I don t know if you will like this book It s a very particular kind of book done very well, which is not remotely a promise that you will like it The jacket copy is not untrue, but it also isn t helpful Yes, this is book about the end of the world as we know it, yes, this is a book about a post apocalyptic Shakespearean troupe, yes, this is a book about a Hollywood actor s dispiriting love life But that doesn t tell you how the book feels what the experience is like reading it This is less a nov [...]

    Hell is the absence of the people you long for When the Georgia Flu sweeps around the world killing 99.6% of the population there were suddenly a lot of people to long for The people missing from our lives is the hardest part We mourn their loss, but we also have to mourn for the part of ourselves that is lost with each of their passings To survive is painful Civilization in Year Twenty was an archipelago of small towns These towns had fought off ferals, buried their neighbors, lived and died an [...]

    I don t know why it bothers me so that I thought this book was just ok So many of my GR friends have embraced this Station Eleven and have shouted its praises from the rooftop I struggled through the first 80 pages, didn t want to throw it under the couch, but wasn t finding myself engaged Perhaps I should have quit while I was ahead but stubborn that I am, I carried on It never really got better for me but I did finish At least I won t feel left out Shakespeare is dead and I prefer him to remai [...]

    Find all of my reviews at 52bookminimum The thing with the new world is it s just horrifically short on elegance Everyone loved this book I m talking EVERYONE I have 1 yep ONE friend or person I follow on who gave it less than 3 Stars In order to prove how much of an idiot I am and that no one should take my opinion seriously, I will super giffify this review.Station Eleven begins with the story of Arthur, who passes away on stage while performing King Lear, and of Jeevan, the man who tried to r [...]

    Until I someday write a longer review you never know, it could happen , I ll just say this I sat down intending to read about 50 pages tonight and wound up reading 200 I also completely forgot the world around me existed for a few hours, and that is the highest praise I can personally give any book.

    It s no accident that Emily St John Mandel opens her haunting new novel with a scene from King Lear, who ends up mad and blind but clear as a bell One of that play s memorable lines is The oldest hath borne most we that are young Shall never see so much nor live so long Indeed, there is a divide between those who have borne much and those who will never see so much In the opening pages, renowned actor Arthur Leander dies while performing King Lear Before the week is out, the vast majority of the [...]

    This was a lovely, elevated apocalypse story that was very touching The integration of acting and Hollywood world was really interesting, I m sure even so to someone who isn t in the biz If you want a dose of great storytelling with your post disaster wasteland fiction, this is a book for you

    I wanted and expected to enjoy this novel than I did There s much that s gripping and clever but it was spoiled for me by a sloppiness in its construction, most notably an excess of half baked and obfuscating characters Was this novel rushed to cash in on the Hunger Games pandemic At times it comes across as a novel written with heart but equally it can seem sketchy and only half imagined Also should be said that it karaokes most other successful dystopian novels of recent times, most obviously [...]

    The world is ending, a deadly pandemic has left 99.99% of humanity dead, and for those left the task of surviving is proving to be difficult than any of them could have imagined A famous actor falls dead on stage from a heart attack mere hours before the outbreak affects nearly everyone around him They would all almost be dead within a few weeks Station Eleven is the story of those affected by this mass outbreak and how they are somehow all connected in ways that transcend this great tragedy.If [...]

    An exceptionally well rendered portrait of Elvis on a magnificent black velvet background.Station Eleven, Emily St John Mandel s 2014 novel is the Velvet Elvis of post apocalyptic books, a surprisingly different form than usual with a style all its own Post apocalyptic literary science fiction was one way I have heard it described, and also pastoral science fiction and I here adopt both descriptions Mandel has certainly softened the Mad Max edges off her story and provided a ponderous, meanderin [...]

  14. Fabian

    An eclectic, wondrous literary feast, with a generous dispersal of savory anecdotes, attitudes grand themes It has all the BEST features of previous apocalyterature road stories the pale terror of McCarthy s The Road , the joie de vivre bonhomie of the band of outsiders in The Wizard of Oz, the irresistible speed and power of Mad Max it all adds up to something as interesting bizarre as Cloud Atlas Station Eleven is a novel that s full of life It desists from stumbling upon any number of apocaly [...]

    Actual Rating 4.5 Stars We traveled so far and your friendship meant everything It was difficult, but there were moments of beauty Everything ends I am not afraid Station Eleven is a book that sat hovering in my peripheral vision for a couple of years I promised myself I would read it in 2017, and I m really glad I finally did The book begins with the end The end of actor, Arthur Leander, and the end of the world in the form of a fast acting flu like virus From that point on, the story criss cro [...]

    Review originally published at Learn This Phrase.First, two points about my experience of reading so far in 2014.1 I ve read some great books this year, but in terms of highly anticipated new fiction, 2014 has frequently been disappointing Elizabeth is Missing and The Miniaturist, two enormously hyped debuts I had been hearing about since around a year ago, were both perfectly readable and okay, but fell far short of what I expected from them Sarah Waters new novel The Paying Guests I found bori [...]

    This is an incredible book The sort of book you should attend a midnight party at your local bookstore to get your hands on a copy The sort of book you should call in sick to work the day you buy, because you won t want to stop reading it I put this book down only to email everyone I know with the sort of subject line OMG best book ever please read immediately that could potentially be sent to the spam folder This novel, friends, is the real deal Everything that follows deals only with informati [...]

    This is one well written apocalypse.Arthur Leander is a famous actor who suffers a heart attack and dies on stage just before a deadly version of the swine flu kills most of humanity Station Eleven then uses Arthur as the center of a web of connections that we learn from the people in his life before, during and after the disease wipes out the world as we know it Kirsten sees Arthur die as a child actor, and years later she s part of the Traveling Symphony that tours the small towns of the post [...]

    assorted thoughtsa post apocalyptic pastoral I like post apocalyptic pastorals, their difference from other post apocalyptic novels that prefer to focus on violence and devolving to a barbaric state something so relaxing about contemplating an emptied out world not full of hustle and bustle all that time to think but how does one go about eating or fighting off the occasional aggressor it would be important to have skill with a knife.I appreciate the tender humanism at the novel s core.I appreci [...]

    Station Eleven is a gem amongst the works of dystopian fiction A novel that exudes hope amidst an apocalypse with a refreshing new concept.A nomadic group traveling around an expanse in a world wiped out by a pandemic and performing the works of poets and playwrights I am impressed at how original this turned out to be Mixing it with a character driven plot is what won me over this award winner It amazed me how seamlessly woven the different viewpoints were in the narrative Jumping back and fort [...]

    Hello, HBO My name is Station Eleven, and I would make an awesome miniseries I m missing one of my stars because I didn t spend quite enough time on Jeevan in the last third, and because there was so little explanation of the first, scariest i.e most thrilling year, but I am otherwise damn near perfect and totally addictive and it s sad that I m over and done Sequel, sequel, seeequel, seeeeeequel Margaret Atwood totally end of the world spoiled me.

    4.5 stars I stood looking over my damaged home and tried to forget the sweetness of life on Earth.Dr Eleven stands on dark rocks overlooking an indigo sea at twilight Small boats move between islands, wind turbines spinning on the horizon He holds his fedora in his hand A small white animal stands by his side.On Station Eleven s surface it is always sunset or twilight or night.Station Eleven is an elegy lamenting all that humanity has lost when over 99% of the world s population is killed in a f [...]

    I am really struggling to understand what people like about this book This book is terrible The characters are so poorly drawn Arthur, a vapid movie star, who, based on his actions and numerous ex wives is a shallow, benign sociopath who seems to drift from woman to woman without conscience His existence as a movie star is dimly imagined as if through the lens of a person who only reads UsWeekly His craft is only discussed inso far as to ruminate on celebrity actors sacrifice privacy, paparazzi [...]

    No doubt, a favorite I loved it just as much, if not , the second time reading it I love Mandel s ability to infuse hope into such a hopeless situation The persistence of art, the interdependent nature of humanity, and the world s inevitable chaos are all themes that appear and reappear throughout the novel They intertwine like the lives of these characters, and the clarity and precision with which Mandel presents these multiple narratives is impeccable It moved me again and again, and I can t w [...]

    I knew Emily St John Mandel s 2014 apocalyptic bestseller Station Eleven well when I raced through it over three days in February 2015 My thoughts were ripe and I m convinced my insights were brilliant Then came judgment day, in October appropriately, when tricked me into deleting my review because the book was still marked to read in my reading docket Now I find myself struggling to pick up the pieces and recreate what was the best I can, without cannibals chasing me.The story begins at the Elg [...]

    Station Eleven QAQ Winner of the Arthur C Clarke Award, finalist for the PEN Faulkner, nominated for the National Book Award, and a 4 rating on this must be pretty good, right A It is But the weight of expectations was immense And I m not above a reflexive anti kowtow when twitterpated literati seem a little too consistent in their praise Q Twitterpated is that something to do with tweets A Grr let s agree that I ll be the one to make the jokes, OK Like I was saying before, albeit multisyllabica [...]

    As a general rule, I don t tend to seek out post apocalyptic fare There are enough depressing things in life for instance, when careless 7 Eleven employees put Coke Slurpee into the same dispenser that previously had banana Slurpee in it without giving it a proper cleaning, so the Coke Slurpee ends up overwhelmed with notes of fake banana flavor, which might be the worst of the fake flavors, notwithstanding fake earwax flavored jelly beans but only because fake earwax flavor is execrable real ea [...]
