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.… (mais)

Gorgeous and lyrical, Station Eleven is a life-affirming story of an apocalypse. Yes! As Emily St. John Mandel describes a virus that wipes out civilization, she affirms the value of art, music, and literature, and the wonder of human connection. The way she plays with time is breathtaking. ( )

I liked it; the audiobook was well read.
4 abandoned burger kings out of 5 abandoned burger kings. ( )

The book isn't bad exactly, but I had such high expectations after the absolutely fantastic miniseries from Patrick Somerville (wonderful cast and production). I thought the book would bring me even deeper into this fascinating world, but wow...the book was just the inspiration for what the series was able to refine, organize, dramatize, and build in ways that the writer just can't do. In fact, the book really fails in terms of character development, scenes, dialogue, and overall vision. There's still a lot of imagination and some good ideas, but if only this young writer had found a good editor or someone to help coach the writing into more fruitful territory. I probably wouldn't try this writer again, but I'm still grateful for how this flawed work inspired some really excellent television. ( )

Ups and downs.
Very interesting and effective narrative structure, first of all the everyday objects linking the scattered stories of all the characters before and after the disaster; a deep love and understanding for humanity and its weakness and strenght; no interest for the bad guys/good guys dychotomy.
On the other hand, some superficiality in describing the post-disaster world: how the suddenly neglected nuclear power plants didn't change the world into a wasteland? Also, on the "downs" front lie a flatness in characters' personality (which is partially amended in the course of the narrative), and an overall lack of depth.
I don't even mention the style. Most of contemporary novels are written as if they were a high school report. Maybe it's all that "ceative writing" education, anyway it nearly made me abandon the reading. I have to say, anyway, that in the end I did not only finished the book, but I also finished it in a night. I could say that of many brain-chewingum books I read, but I have to admit (begrudgingly) that there is something more to this one. ( )

If you want to read a great post-virus/apocalyptic scenario book... The 5th Wave is fantastic. It handles the flashbacks better; it is written at a faster pace, with engaging characters.

This book introduces you to interesting characters and then does little with it, letting each of them peter out to an unsatisfying, awkward ending. Though this book is much more socio-political than The 5th Wave, yet it is only observational, with a long narrative structure and no real conclusions to be drawn. ( )

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.
