Jag älskade verkligen Station Eleven, och detta kommer från någon som läst väldigt många (och många bra) efter katastrofen-romaner. Väldigt snyggt binder författaren ihop livsöden och händelser mellan nu- och framtid. Fina människoporträtt och en mycket vacker berättelse.

Intressant men ändå inte så bra som jag trodde. Lite hoppigt fram och tillbaka i tiden så man tappad ibland. Är det detta som väntar oss tex efter en pandemi? Man undrar dock varför tekniken måste gå tillbaka till "stenåldern". Skulle det vara så i verkligheten?

Boken är oerhört vacker, tänkvärd, spännande, helt hjärtskärande positiv mitt i dystopin. Den är något helt annorlunda än romaner som jag läst inom samma genré. Väntar på filmen - den måste komma!

Mandel's beautiful depiction of the survival of human culture and art in a post-apocalyptic world, Perfect for fans of The Handmaid's Tale. * Cosmopolitan * The Handmaid's Tale isn't the only one out there to examine life in a dystopia or collapsing society, or examine the challenges women face when confronting an authoritative power. * The Verge * A dystopian novel that every woman should read after The Handmaid's Tale. * Refinery29.com * Glorious, unexpected, superbly written; just try putting it down. * The Times * One of the 2014 books that I did read stands above all the others, however: Station Eleven, by Emily St. John Mandel . . . It's a deeply melancholy novel, but beautifully written, and wonderfully elegiac, a book that I will long remember, and return to. -- George R. R. Martin Disturbing, inventive and exciting, Station Eleven left me wistful for a world where I still live. -- Jessie Burton, author of <i>The Miniaturist</i> Once in a very long while a book becomes a brand new old friend, a story you never knew you always wanted. Station Eleven is that rare find that feels familiar and extraordinary at the same time, expertly weaving together future and present and past, death and life and Shakespeare. This is truly something special. -- Erin Morgenstern, author of <i>The Night Circus</i> Visually stunning, dreamily atmospheric and impressively gripping . . . Station Eleven is not so much about apocalypse as about memory and loss, nostalgia and yearning; the effort of art to deepen our fleeting impressions of the world and bolster our solitude. * Guardian * Station Eleven is so compelling, so fearlessly imagined, that I wouldn't have put it down for anything. I think this one is really going to go places. -- Ann Patchett, author of <i>Bel Canto</i> and <i>State of Wonder</i> A beautiful and unsettling book, the action moves between the old and new world, drawing connections between the characters and their pasts and showing the sweetness of life as we know it now and the value of friendship, love and art over all the vehicles, screens and remote controls that have been rendered obsolete. Mandel's skill in portraying her post-apocalyptic world makes her fictional creation seem a terrifyingly real possibility. Apocalyptic stories once offered the reader a scary view of an alternative reality and the opportunity, on putting the book down, to look around gratefully at the real world. This is a book to make its reader mourn the life we still lead and the privileges we still enjoy. * Sunday Express * Station Eleven is a firework of a novel. Elegantly constructed and packed with explosive beauty, it's full of life and humanity and the aftershock of memory. -- Lauren Beukes, author of <i>The Shining Girls</i> There is no shortage of post-apocalyptic thrillers on the shelves these days, but Station Eleven is unusually haunting . . . There is an understated, piercing nostalgia . . . there is humour, amid the collapse . . . and there is Mandel's marvellous creation, the Travelling Symphony, travelling from one scattered gathering of humanity to another . . . There is also a satisfyingly circular mystery, as Mandel unveils neatly, satisfyingly, the links between her disparate characters . . . This book will stay with its readers much longer than more run-of-the-mill thrillers. -- Alison Flood, Thriller of the Month * Observer * Station Eleven is a magnificent, compulsive novel that cleverly turns the notion of a "kinder, gentler time" on its head. And, oh, the pleasure of falling down the rabbit hole of Mandel's imagination - a dark, shimmering place rich in alarmingly real detail and peopled with such human, such very appealing characters. -- Liza Klaussmann, author of <i>Tigers in Red Weather</i> A genuinely unsettling dystopian novel that also allows for moments of great tenderness. Emily St. John Mandel conjures indelible visuals, and her wr
