One snowy night, a famous Hollywood actor 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 theatre troupe known as the Travelling 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 Travelling 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.

My son recommended this to me and it's not the usual kind of book I read, but I absolutely loved it. Science fiction with a bit of fantasy and takes place in Canada (mostly!).

It's a stark look at what could happen after a pandemic.

This is reserved for Hoserlauren next time I see her or go out her way.

Thank you Enza! I'm really looking forward to this one. I *LOVED* the TV show and enjoyed the author's most recent book.

2023 is the year of me becoming an Emily St. John Mandel fan. I had read Sea of Tranquility earlier this year and really enjoyed it. I also enjoyed this one, but differently. There were some things I liked more about that book (the surprise of how all the characters connected together) and some things I liked more about this book (the hope for humanity and it not being a typical bleak post-apocalyptic story). I would have enjoyed a little bit more character development (particularly Tyler and Elizabeth, how did they turn out to be like that?) but I still enjoyed this one a lot!
