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)

The Band Plays On in Dystopia

Most people, but not all, will enjoy Mandel's speculative fiction peek into the near future. However, it's not the dystopian tomorrow that makes her book such a worthwhile use of time, because, after all, a dystopian future is a mere trope of the genre. It's how she slows down the pace to allow her characters, and readers with them, to contemplate the world, the marvelous and generally comfortable world, of today. Her choice of timeframe, 20 years hence, allows her to populate the novel with characters who fully lived in our time, experienced it as children, and had no personal experience, only the memories of the elders. Solely for this reason, the novel earns a four-star recommendation. We really all should step back for a moment from time to time to appreciate what it is we have wrought as a civilization, and what we risk losing if we are careless, rash, or too consumed by personal hubris.

The tale sums up quickly: an incurable and lightening fast strain of the flu blazes onto the scene, spreads around the world with the speed of jet travel, and kills nearly ninety-nine percent of the world's human population. The remaining people live in small enclaves, which the Traveling Symphony visits in a circuit near the Great Lakes region. A symphony in the middle of a worldwide disaster? Yes, "because survival is insufficient." In other words, the human spirit requires more than food and water to nourish it.

Evil still exists in the world, represented by a sect led by a fellow called the prophet (a woefully underdeveloped character for one as important as he is supposed to be, the flag waver for a whole class of unintentional evildoers). No mystery here: he and his followers have the true word, or, as they call it, the light.

Station Eleven of the title refers to a limited-edition graphic novel passed down to one of the main characters, Kirsten. It functions as a grand metaphor for the situation the world finds itself in. Characters spend most of their time thinking back over their lives, missing people and things, and mulling over what they have lost. At times this can feel like brooding. But at other times, especially in the terminal section and in the author's treatment of Clark, Mandel makes you stop and think about life and what we risk forfeiting. As stated in the opening, herein lies the strength and merit of the novel.

Unfortunately, hardcore science fiction fans may not appreciate the lack of science. Others may find the pace sluggish, given we're talking the end of the world. But, overall, most will find it an agreeable, and often quite wonderful, novel. ( )

  write-review | Nov 4, 2021 |
So... uhhh... I finished this book. or books. Was this actually 2 books that were shuffled together like a deck of cards? On the one hand, a fairly straight-forward depiction of life after the collapse of society. And then there was another book describing in much depth, the background of many people that did not survive said collapse of society; people that had no direct role in either the collapse or the life after the collapse. People whose lives were rather boring and (again) straight-forward.

I kept waiting for 2 things to happen, and only one of them actually did:
1) the reveal of the prophet. I pegged this one at exactly the 66% mark - when it was revealed that Clark, Elizabeth and Tyler's plane was diverted to Severn City
2) I thought - in fact, right up until the last page - that there was a chance that the world would turn out to be either Station Eleven itself, or Arthur's dying dream.

One thing that I liked about this book is that there weren't any zombies. There wasn't any supernatural forces come to raze the survivors. No aliens. Except for The Prophet, no maniacs seizing power. Just people trying to survive. Don't get me wrong - I love all of those things generally. But it is nice to see a story that can be made WITHOUT them. It makes those things a bit more special when they DO occur in a book.

Ok, so where are we with this review? The characters were mostly unexciting - not necessarily boring or intolerable - just ... blahhhhhh. (You know, like most people in Real Life). The post-collapse depiction was nice. The pre-collapse life took up way too much of the book. The connections between the characters was... pointless? So - I didn't hate reading this book. I didn't hate the ending. I wasn't bored. But I definitely didn't love it. So a straight-up middle-of-the-road 3/5 stars from me.

Audiobook notes - very nicely read by Kirsten Potter. Good production values. ( )

Brief. Poetic. Interesting. I never really "got" the story but the concepts were engaging. ( )

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.
