The New York Times Bestseller
2014 National Book Awards Finalist
2015 PEN/Faulkner Award Finalist

What was lost in the collapse: almost everything, almost everyone, but there is still such beauty.

One snowy night in Toronto famous actor Arthur Leander dies on stage whilst performing the role of a lifetime. That same evening a deadly virus touches down in North America.
The world will never be the same again.

Twenty years later Kirsten, an actress in the Travelling Symphony, performs Shakespeare in the settlements that have grown up since the collapse.
But then her newly hopeful world is threatened.

If civilization was lost, what would you preserve? And how far would you go to protect it?

'BEST NOVEL. The big one . . . One of the 2014 books that I did read stands above all the others: Station Eleven , by Emily St. John Mandel . . . beautifully written, and wonderfully elegiac, a book that I will long remember, and return to.' George R.R. Martin, author of Game of Thrones

'Emily St. John Mandel's Station Eleven is that rare find that feels familiar and extraordinary at the same time. This is truly something special' Erin Morgenstern, author of The Night Circus

Glorious, unexpected, superbly written; just try putting it down. The Times

Emily St. John Mandel, geboren 1979, wuchs an der Westküste von British Columbia in Kanada auf. Sie studierte zeitgenössischen Tanz an der "School of Toronto Dance Theatre" und lebte danach kurze Zeit in Montreal, bevor sie nach New York umzog und anfing, für das literarische Online-Magazin "The Millions" zu schreiben. Sie lebt dort mit ihrem Ehemann. "

Erfrischender postapokalyptischer Roman

Die Geschichte von Emily St. John Mandel hat mir besonders gut gefallen, weil auf eine sehr natürliche und unaufgeregte Art diese post-apokalyptische Welt, Stück für Stück entfaltet wird. Auch erfrischend finde ich, dass die Charaktere mal nicht die Helden/Heldinnen der Geschichte sind, sondern einfach damit beschäftigt sind, in dieser neuen Welt zu wandeln. Nicht nur der Inhalt hat mich fasziniert, sondern auch dass aus den vielen verschiedenen Sichtweisen der Charaktere erzählt wurde, die mitunter auch in ganz anderen Zeitabschnitten spielen. Ich habe mir das Buch auf Englisch gekauft (als deutsche Abiturientin), bin aber sehr gut damit zurecht gekommen. Ich kann dieses Buch also wärmstens empfehlen, wenn Sie gerne dystopische und postapokalyptische Romane lesen, langsam aber keine Lust mehr auf die Standartgeschichte „Held/in rettet die Erde“ hat.

Lockdown Literature, or Survival is Insufficient

Wouldn’t it have been more appropriate to feel tremendous relief about being able to wake up from the nightmare of this dystopian novel about a pandemic, published in 2014? Except we can’t leave it behind any longer. It has gained in momentum as, here and now, we are catching mere glimpses of everything that can or could happen: Civilization is brutally interrupted. Nature conquers back Earth: “The forest has crept up to the edges of the school parking lot and sent an advance party out toward the building, small trees growing through cracks in the pavement.” /// Mandel has turned the nightmare into a strange dream. She writes like a goddess, no less. And like a goddess, she gets to decide who will live and who will die: “As flies to wanton boys are we to the gods”! Even so, you will instantly trust her fully and wholeheartedly. Any resentment is impossible. Like a goddess she has woven the strands of various loosely connected characters and their stories together, from the recent past before and up until twenty years after the pandemic catastrophe, mercifully leaving out the middle. Even the shortest insights into their lives will make you feel you know these characters and “get them”. Mandel lulls you and snows you in, with both real and fake snow. At times, it does seem easier to let snow bury all the memories, softening the pain of all this loss, mostly of things (and people!) we take for granted. /// This novel leans heavily on “King Lear”. “The weight of this sad time we must obey,/ Speak what we feel, not what we ought to say./ The oldest hath borne most: we that are young/ Shall never see so much, nor live so long.”/// It’s a consolation that Shakespeare should have survived it all. Along with the quotes from Star Trek. And some Calvin and Hobbes philosophy. But also this wonderful graphic novel about Dr. Eleven, Captain Lonagan and Station Eleven, aka the Undersea. There is a strange comfort in it that some characters in the book feel, even with very different results. I wish someone would actually draw it and make it a “real” thing. I would love to read that, too. Dive in and linger there, just like I would have wanted to linger in this superb novel much longer.

"Survival is insufficient"
von einer Kundin/einem Kunden am 01.08.2019
Bewertet: Einband: gebundene Ausgabe

This was the best book with a postapocalyptic setting I have ever read. Much more hopeful than "The Road" and way more entertaining than "The Passage". It also had some "A Visit from the Goon Squad"/"Tauben im Gras" vibes due to the time frame and character constellation. A masterpiece!
