One snowy night a famous Hollywood actor slumps over and dies onstage during a production of King Lear. Hours later, the world as we know it begins to dissolve. Moving back and forth in time-from the actor's early days as a film star to fifteen years in the future, when a theater troupe known as the Traveling Symphony roams the wasteland of what remains-this suspenseful, elegiac, spellbinding novel charts the strange twists of fate that connect five people: the actor, the man who tried to save him, the actor's first wife, his oldest friend, and a young actress with the Traveling Symphony, caught in the crosshairs of a dangerous self-proclaimed prophet. Sometimes terrifying, sometimes tender, 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.… (lisätietoja)

Sorry, but once you've become addicted to shows like TWD, The Rain, Dark, Stranger Things and Westworld, it takes a lot more than this snoozefest to hold your interest. ( )

A post-apocalyptic book that was not unremittingly depressing. Sort of halfway between McCarthy's The Road and Sterling's Change series. It's an interesting device that ties the characters together, but I'm not sure how well it would scale to a sequel. ( )

Reading Emily St. John Mandel's "Station Eleven", about the collapse of civilization due to a (fictional) world-wide flu pandemic, while at the same time being homebound because of the outbreak the (actual) coronavirus pandemic, gives you something to think about. Certainly, the coronavirus is serious, and is taking a terrible toll on life as we know it. Yet there's some small comfort in seeing how much worse things could be as the author describes in her futuristic novel. In her 2014 novel, which incidentally was a Arthur C. Clarke Award winner and finalist for a National Book Award, the Georgia Flu has become a world-wide pandemic. It has an extremely high mortality rate, leaving only small pockets of survivors left, forced to scavenge and forage for food and survival. As uncomfortable as it is today to see borders being closed, international travel all but stopped, schools, restaurants, hotels, and businesses being shutdown, and all but essential workers staying confined in their houses, it's comforting to have something to read to take your mind off our current troubles, and accept that things could be much worse.

“Because survival is insufficient.” That line, from a Star Trek Voyager episode, looms large in “Station Eleven” and totally speaks to me right now. I’m not sure what term describes reading a novel about a pandemic virus that changes the world as we know it during the current dealing with a pandemic time, but wow am I glad I did. I am a huge fan of Kate Atkinsson books, especially the way she is able to create complex characters, plots, and timelines and make it all work. It is a style that is easily derailed and juggling the various elements is something I think you can’t teach. Emily St. John Mandel has already revealed herself to be a master at this based on the two books of hers that I have read. Part of what I love about these types of books is the way the tumblers click into place as you move around in time and location. I think the ability to place those moments in the early sections of book is such an alchemic science. They need to be understandable and not frustrating on first reading and they need to stick with you enough so that the echo later links to it. I was transfixed by the way the plot allowed Ms. St. John Mandel to explore the feelings of regret that accompany a life, especially as you move past 50 (hello there!), “thinking about the terrible gulf of years between eighteen and fifty” and wondering how you ended up where you are as opposed to where you might want to be. Obviously, that is a different concept during “normal times” as opposed to a post-apocalyptic world but the feeling is the same. There is a chapter near the end which is following a character during what would be his last day on earth, which he has no idea is the case, and it is simply captivating and moving in its depiction of the mundane and “all of the small details that comprise a morning a life.” Since “being alive is a risk” I think the somewhat trite adage to live each day as if it were your last is actually one with a real kernel of truth. I am not one who likes a lot of post-apocalyptic writing, it just makes me sad, but it works here because instead of just surviving the people we follow are living. Huge difference. The story of course features a cult of the type that always springs up in moments like this. And as always, “if you are the light, if your enemies are darkness, then there is nothing that you cannot justify.” This is what scares me so much about the evangelical streak in America and the rampant nationalism that is nothing more than a patriotic version of the same. It is hard to reason with someone who thinks they are the pure and anyone outside if pure evil and “that kind of insanity’s contagious”, just like a virus. I was amazed at how she wrote this part of the book and there are revelations (no pun intended) that do give it a lot more context and reason. I also love how we are reading about time 20 years past “the event” so anyone 25 or younger really has no memory of the way things used to be. Can you imagine explaining the internet to someone in a time with no electricity? This book moved me, entertained me, frightened me, and in the end lifted my soul up just a little. Books like this are why I read, because survival is insufficient. ( )

This is a strangely beautiful, engaging novel. Short, easy to read, and I haven't been able to fully remove myself from it. It's a post-apocalyptic novel, but not in any way related to zombies, and the end of the world couldn't be more central while being (ultimately) beside the point.

I may come back to this one, give it that remaining star. There are issues that I had with this book, and they aren't just challenges to genre conventions-- I rather liked that. There is an imperfection in the story line that is intentional, disconcerting, and a part of me really likes it, but another part wonders if it isn't there by accident rather than through the skill of the writer and I'm merely ascribing a poetry to the story that isn't actually there. That said, I will read more by Ms. Mandel. and I recommend this one especially. ( )

Station Eleven is not so much about apocalypse as about memory and loss, nostalgia and yearning; the effort of art to deepen our fleeting impressions of the world and bolster our solitude. Mandel evokes the weary feeling of life slipping away, for Arthur as an individual and then writ large upon the entire world.
 
Survival may indeed be insufficient, but does it follow that our love of art can save us? If “Station Eleven” reveals little insight into the effects of extreme terror and misery on humanity, it offers comfort and hope to those who believe, or want to believe, that doomsday can be survived, that in spite of everything people will remain good at heart, and that when they start building a new world they will want what was best about the old.
 
Mandel’s solid writing and magnetic narrative make for a strong combination in what should be a breakout novel.
