    Beschreibung von Audible

    Editors Select, September 2014 - Station Eleven may take place during the end of civilization, but don’t make the mistake of discounting it as just another apocalyptic tale. The narrative shifts between past and present and follows five characters, each connected in some fateful way. We begin on a stage, where a world-famous actor suddenly dies while performing King Lear, and jump to Year 20, where a group known as the Traveling Symphony Orchestra travels between settlements, performing Shakespeare to captivated audiences. The result is a fascinating, suspenseful story that, despite its setting, is anything but bleak. I am eagerly awaiting more from Emily St. John Mandel, and I can’t wait to experience the book again with narration from Kirsten Potter ( If I Stay). —Sam, Audible Editor

    Inhaltsangabe

    NATIONAL BOOK AWARD FINALIST • NATIONAL BESTSELLER • An audacious, darkly glittering novel set in the eerie days of civilization’s collapse - the spellbinding story of a Hollywood star, his would-be savior, and a nomadic group of actors roaming the scattered outposts of the Great Lakes region, risking everything for art and humanity. Now an original series on HBO Max

    Kirsten Raymonde will never forget the night Arthur Leander, the famous Hollywood actor, had a heart attack on stage during a production of King Lear. That was the night when a devastating flu pandemic arrived in the city, and within weeks, civilization as we know it came to an end.

    Twenty years later, Kirsten moves between the settlements of the altered world with a small troupe of actors and musicians. They call themselves The Traveling Symphony, and they have dedicated themselves to keeping the remnants of art and humanity alive. But when they arrive in St. Deborah by the Water, they encounter a violent prophet who will threaten the tiny band’s existence. And as the story takes off, moving back and forth in time, and vividly depicting life before and after the pandemic, the strange twist of fate that connects them all will be revealed.

    Look for Emily St. John Mandel’s new novel, Sea of Tranquility, coming in April 2022!

    Kritikerstimmen

    "A unique departure from which to examine civilization's wreckage.... [a] wild fusion of celebrity gossip and grim future.... Mandel's examination of the connections between individuals with disparate destinies makes a case for the worth of even a single life." ( Publishers Weekly)
    "Following three smart, voicey thrillers published with a small press, Mandel makes the leap … to ambitious, fantastical storytelling." (Boris Kachka, New York magazine)
    "[An] ambitious take on a post-apocalyptic world where some strive to preserve art, culture and kindness.... Think of Cormac McCarthy seesawing with Joan Didion.... Mandel spins a satisfying web of coincidence and kismet.... Magnetic.... a breakout novel." ( Kirkus)

    A different kind of (post)apocalyptic storytelling

    The story is wonderfully crafted - interweaving the different storylines and instances in time and characters.

    Its a different take on (post)apocalyptic fiction as it is not the classic good vs. bad / zombies vs. humans / rebels vs. government storyline we are often used. Yet the story doe not fail to provide tension and excitment.

    (I used the goodreads rating system to rate the books I've read so 4 stars means it was a great book)

    Close, but no cigar

    It‘s slowburning, interesting theory of how the world ends, originally presented, but kind of dies at the end, it never blooms, it stays in the grays and keeps there untill the end where (for my view) it loses it.
    It wasn‘t a waste of time, but I ended up wanting some more.

    Gripping

    Gripping story, a lot less esoteric then I expected. More "Contagion" meets a good version of "the postman" than arthouse, if you want to put it in movie terms.
    Some minor weaknesses though, imho especially with the villain who is more a side character than I would have wished.

    Very good

    Despite perhaps some minor logical mistakes, this story is very well crafted. Its themes about people, living/survival and art link well together. Switches between characters and times progress to create a beautiful pattern.

    Avoid at all cost

    Narration is quite good, I liked it.

    Unfortunately the book is a set of boring short stories, loosely connected by very shallow post apocalyptic glue. Loose ends, strange characters and story lines (the prophet....).

    Don't listen to this!
