I enjoyed this novel but it wasn’t a favorite. I recommend it for folks who don’t usually read science fiction – this seems like a book that would appeal more to those who are more accustomed to literary fiction as the writing is lovely but a bit slow-paced. It seems like a gentle introduction to science-fiction themes to those who don’t think of themselves as enjoying the genre. I also had a hard time caring about some of the main characters. gas jet size chart Of course characters don’t have to be likable, but I do need to have some investment in caring or wanting to know about how their lives turn out. However, Arthur and Kristen’s journeys didn’t have a compelling arc or character development to me. I am a fan of post-apocalyptic novels and, as a former musician, loved the idea of a traveling symphony/theater. I had hoped the threads of the characters stories might tie together in a more interesting way at the end. I kept hoping for some reveal of how their lives would tie together at the end, or in a way I wasn’t aware of from the beginning, but other than crossing each others’ paths at various points, they didn’t. Another annoyance was having some of the characters have names but others be referred to by their position in the orchestra which seemed implausible and objectifying to me. Otherwise a lovely, lyrical read.

Twenty years later, small groups of humans are making new lives without the technology of the past–no internet, electricity, or automobiles. Kirsten, The former child actress who witnessed Arthur’s death, roams as part of a Traveling Symphony who perform concerts and plays for small audiences. Their motto is a line from Star Trek: Voyager: “Because survival is insufficient.”

Mandel’s novel is about survivors, and their efforts to rebuild human society, but it’s also about the people who died, and the ways in which their actions and their art continue to ripple out to affect the living. In a narrative that moves between past and present, from one character’s point of view to another’s, readers gradually learn of the entangled connections that tie the characters to each other.

Station Eleven reminds us to appreciate the everyday miracles of our world—from lighted swimming pools and electric guitars to lightning fast communication with people around the world. There is danger and darkness in Mandel’s vision of the future, but there is more good than bad, more hope than sadness, and the people who remain hold tightly to the most beautiful parts of the world that’s been lost.

However, this symphony is also heavily armed, as chaos does exist in the new world. electricity a level physics There are those in this rough life who rely on violence, including an eerie Prophet who controls a town the Travelling Symphony rolls into at the start of the story. This Prophet and his followers will pursue them for the rest of the book, adding an edge of suspense.

The story weaves back and forth from apocalyptic present to the past, revealing ways in which all the characters are connected. The constant return to ‘before’ results in a sense of nostalgia for what we haven’t yet lost. Mandel points out precious elements of daily life that her characters have lost forever – the taste of an orange, the feel of air conditioning, ice cream, the ability to connect with one another by phone.

Throughout the book we also encounter Dr. Eleven, a scientist in a graphic novel that Kirsten has carried with her over the many years of post-apocalyptic life. The two volumes she owns of this tiny graphic novel sustain her. Dr. Eleven lives on a satellite, Station Eleven, after the earth is destroyed, and his story reflects her own. This imaginary graphic novel is fleshed out so wonderfully that I hope it is only a matter of time before Mandel releases a real-life edition.

"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 novels. One snowy night a famous Hollywood actor slumps over and dies onstage during a production of King Lear. gas dryer vs electric dryer safety 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 theater troupe known as the Traveling 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 Traveling 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"– Provided by publisher.

A bit of an improvement over some of his more recent work. Perhaps that has more to do with a fairly decent second half of the book, and the use of a young Jack Ryan in sequences set in the past. This has both President Ryan and his son and colleagues at the black ops agency the Campus dealing with a resurgent Russia and a mystery dating back to the Cold War involving a shadowy Russian operative. a gas has Still, the problems remain that have plagued Clancy books since the post Bear and the Dragon era. He’s disregarded continuity, inserted too much of his political leanings into things, and has created characters in the Campus era that just aren’t that interesting. Jack Ryan Jr., Dominic Caruso, Sam Driscoll, and others just aren’t compelling when you compare them to Jack Ryan and John Clark, and that’s been a persistant problem in these books since the last good one. That said, however, the political and military situation he sets out here with his collaborator are eerily predictive of the current situation on the world stage, a gift Clancy has always been exceptional at. If this is indeed the final Jack Ryan book, at least the second half of it uplifts a slow start.
