Station Eleven Free read é E-book, or Kindle E-pub Emily St. John Mandel Ô 9 Read & Download Read Station Eleven An audacious darkly glittering novel about art fame and ambition set in the eerie days of civilization's collapse from the author of three highly acclaimed previous novelsOne 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 Mov. I don t know if you will like this book It s a very particular kind of book done very well which is not remotely a promise that you will like it The jacket copy is not untrue but it also isn t helpful Yes this is book about the end of the world as we know it yes this is a book about a post apocalyptic Shakespearean troupe yes this is a book about a Hollywood actor s dispiriting love life But that doesn t tell you how the book feels what the experience is like reading it This is less a novel of plot and a novel of theme a precisely painted mural of people living in extreme circumstances Some of the chapters take place after the apocalypse and some take place before but it doesn t change the tone the characters personal worlds are under duress in both timelinesI take back what I said about the jacket copy being true by the way It says this book is suspenseful I think that s an unfair and incorrect descriptor for a book that shines for other reasons I couldn t put this book down but that is not the same as being suspenseful My attention was held by the sharp insights on every page not by a headlong plunge toward the end Like I said it s a book of theme not story Station Eleven follows a few central characters faithfully enough to satisfy my need for a human thread but it might not be enough for those who strongly prefer plot driven novels Verdict unsentimental and clear eyed portrait of what humanity considers civilization

Station Eleven Free read é E-book, or Kindle E-pub Emily St. John Mandel Ô 9 Read & Download Read Station Eleven Ing 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 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 h. Of all of them there at the bar that night the bartender was the one who survived the longest He died three weeks later on the road out of the cityon the night the world begins to end a man has a heart attack and dies onstage while performing the lead role in king lear considering that shortly after this the georgia flu will have killed off 99% of the population and changed the world as we know it forever it seems unlikely that he would be remembered among so many millions dead but that s the kind of book this is the story of the people who have touched our lives in unexpected ways an echoing world in which Hell is the absence of the people you long for where the little things or the memories of them matter the mostarthur leander is a famous hollywood actor with three ex wives a son he never sees a lover a friend who knew him when and various people to whom he has been kind careless or otherwise meaningful including a little girl who watches him die beside her onstage and the paparazzo turned paramedic who tried to save his life twenty years later pieces of arthur still remain in the wasteland in the memories of survivors in his blood in the provenance of talismanic objects and in the ripple effect of events he set in motion when he was still alive this is a multiple POV novel that jumps back and forth in time from arthur s rise to fame and the stories of those he loved and lost along the way to the stories of the survivors finding and creating meaning in the ashes Kirsten and August walked mostly in silence A deer crossed the road ahead and paused to look at them before it vanished into the trees The beauty of this world where almost everyone was gone If hell is other people what is a world with almost no people in itkirsten is the little girl who was onstage with arthur when he died and is now a grown woman touring the wasteland with a group of musicians and actors known as the traveling symphony bringing entertainment to the scattered settlements she has a tattoo on her arm with a uote from a remembered star trek episode Because survival is insufficient and this is one of the major preoccupations of the novel the importance of art and a shared cultural history to those who remain whether it is the objects collected in the museum of civilization the persistence of shakespeare the significance of portions of a tattered comic book from which this novel draws its name in the hands of two different characters who will take from it wildly different meanings or even the memory of star trek these are the things that connect those who are left it is the tenacity of what remains what endures and what can still be done with it the clinging to what makes us human to what matters in the aftermath and to what binds us together that s not to say this is a gentle apocalypse solely concerned with maintaining cultural heritage there are dangers everywhere in a world without pharmaceuticals or technology a world in which a lack of codified behavior can make a man believe he is a prophet and to give his dark vision free reignit s a stunner straight up and between this and california it s a great time to be a woman writing lit dystopias i have read oh so many post apocalyptic novels but mandel managed to show me something new she writes a complicated multivoiced story in the fragments we are allowed to see the slices of experience from both before and after the cataclysm where a dinner party scene is just as interesting and fraught with tension as anything from the early days of the disease and there are so many unforgettable jewels of moments jeevan and his wheelchair bound brother trying to wait out the plague a uarantined plane on the edge of the tarmac the memory of oranges she has such a strong wonderful voice and has created tender and sympathetic characters who may be deeply flawed but are the very personifications of the stubbornness of humanityone of the things that surprised me is that wasn t made of the king lear parallels i mean arthur had three wives lear had three daughters and since there are so many references to shakespeare throughout both overt and obliue one of arthur s wives is named miranda another is elizabethian one of the section titles is a midsummer night s dream the georgia flu is somewhat analogous to the black plague of shakespeare s time i feel like it would have given the novel another layer of ka pow to have developed the theme even further but no one of arthur s wives doesn t even appear in the book except a brief mention that she existed and jeez would it have killed mandel to have given v a chapter you know we want to know about that situationbut these are just minor uibbles over an incredibly intelligent and gripping novel and we can still have a little fun with names here exclusive of shakespeare if we play a little free association game with most notably named arthur leander roughly translates into king of tragic lovers which is apttwo uick notes if you don t want a very popular four year old book that yes i know i probably should have read already spoiled for you don t read the acknowledgments because yeah oops that was meand if the graphic novel that plays such an important role in this book is NOT picked up by someone and published as a companion book it will be a huge missed opportunity because we want it badcome to my blog
