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.… (mer)

This is a perfect little gem of a book. Post-apocalyptic in the tradition of The Stand but not nearly as dark, exciting like The Passage, but not so creepy. But most of all, well written and hugely engaging. I have a feeling it will stick with me for a long time. ( )

The author has constructed a clever and all too believable tale of a pandemic many times more lethal than Covid-19. Set in the near future, the Georgia flu has wiped out around 99% of the world’s population and this is the story of some of the survivors 20 year after the event. Mandel contrasts the hardship of their present life with memories of the times before the pandemic struck and she zigzags between these periods to explore the differing reactions of some of the survivors to their fates and how their lives both before and after the pandemic are intertwined. She has created some distinctive characters in the novel and in the current climate, it makes for a fascinating read, but despite the challenging situation, with optimism about peoples’ capacity to adapt to their circumstances.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, the plot was fast-paced and interesting and the settings were familiar and I enjoy envisioning surroundings. The subject matter made me think about our time on earth and how long we are going to last. I didn't enjoy Arthur's story and I think the author returned to it too much but that is probably just a personal preference and not a comment on the calibre of the writing. This was not amazing, Jumpa Lahiri like prose, but it served the story well. ( )
  FurbyKirby | Jan 5, 2021 |
Really fascinating book and a look at the lives of a few people who experience what's close to the end of the world. Atmospheric and hopeful, I think it is one book I will be thinking about for a long time. ( )
  RachellErnst | Jan 5, 2021 |
Very enjoyable dystopian novel. I enjoyed the writing style, characters and the circular nature of the narrative. Would definitely recommend it. ( )

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.
tillagd av zhejw | ändraThe Guardian, Justine Jordan (Sep 25, 2014)
 
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.
tillagd av zhejw | ändraNew York Times, Sigrid Nunez (Sep 12, 2014)
 
Mandel’s solid writing and magnetic narrative make for a strong combination in what should be a breakout novel.

Jeevan's understanding of disaster preparedness was based entirely on action movies, but on the other hand, he'd seen a lot of action movies.
There had always been a massive delicate infrastructure of people, all of them working unnoticed around us, and when people stop going to work, the entire operation grinds to a halt.
I was here for the end of electricity.
He would jettison everything that could possibly be thrown overboard, this weight of money and possessions, and in this casting off he'd be a lighter man.
We traveled so far and your friendship meant everything. It was very difficult, but there were moments of beauty. Everything ends. I am not afraid.
