Publisher's Summary

Winner of the Arthur C. Clarke Award 2015
Day one: The Georgia Flu explodes over the surface of the Earth like a neutron bomb. News reports put the mortality rate at over 99%.
Week Two: Civilization has crumbled.
Year Twenty: A band of actors and musicians called the Travelling Symphony move through their territories performing concerts and Shakespeare to the settlements that have grown up there. Twenty years after the pandemic, life feels relatively safe. But now a new danger looms, and it threatens the hopeful world every survivor has tried to rebuild.
Moving backwards and forwards in time, from the glittering years just before the collapse to the strange and altered world that exists twenty years after, Station Eleven charts the unexpected twists of fate that connect six people: famous actor Arthur Leander; Jeevan, a bystander warned about the flu just in time; Arthur's first wife, Miranda; Arthur's oldest friend, Clark; Kirsten, an actress with the Travelling Symphony; and the mysterious and self-proclaimed 'prophet'.

Emily St. John Mandel was born in Canada and studied dance at The School of Toronto Dance Theatre. She is the author of the novels Last Night in Montreal, The Singer's Gun, The Lola Quartet, and Station Eleven and is a staff writer for The Millions. She is married and lives in New York.

Loved it

If you could sum up Station Eleven in three words, what would they be?

Compelling and thought provoking

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed it and will probably listen again at some stage.

Dullest apocalypse ever

Nothing new here from post outbreak reimaginings of recent films. I'm disappointed with this esp as it made top ten lists of 2014.

A refreshing change for the genre

I enjoyed this book from start to finish. The intertwining tales of the characters all had depth and emotion. It does not run chronologically, part flash backs and jumps through each character or groups but I never felt lost as can often happen with the format. The novel flowed beautifully. I particularly enjoyed that it delves into human behaviour & emotion, the light & dark sides of people and made me think a lot about regret. The human condition is undoubtedly flawed but this book left me feeling more positive for the unknown future & how there are more goodies than baddies out there! And no zombies!! Great narration too, pitch perfect throughout.

Intelligent Sci Fi really well told.

Firstly - it's a great story. It is a really fresh feeling Sci Fi with an engrossing female lead. It also has to be mentioned how good the narrator is. It might sound strange that I man is narrating a book with a female lead but it works very well.

Good book if you dont think about it too much

It focuses on the characters rather than the post apocalypse. It sets them up quite well, but the payoff isnt that great.

There are some things that dont make sense (lack of electricity for 20 years), but it can easily be ignored.

wonderful words

a romantic account of the end of civilization, beautifully written and lovely crafted. but as a boringly practical person I found that myself asking "where are all the solar panels?!"
