I really enjoy St John Mandel's writing style. She really knows how to drag you in and keep you engaged with the characters and story. This was a bit more introspective than Station Eleven but I found the exploration of the multiverse and time travel to be interesting.
I am waiting on a library hold but plan to read The Glass Hotel as well and spend more time with some of her characters.

I didn‘t know that this book should be read after The Glass Hotel and Station Eleven because even though is not a sequel per se but it mentions characters and situations from previous novels. In GoodReads didn‘t appear as a sequel🤷🏽‍♀️I‘m not a big fan of multiverse topic, so there were parts where I lost interest but that is because I don‘t like this trope. I found it repetitive specially in those parts about Gaspery situation. 3⭐️

Sea of Tranquility is my favorite of the Station 11 ‘Trilogy‘. It evoked more emotions than the others,since it had a thriller feel to it. This was a complex, big story to write,& St John Mandel pulled it off!
*I think Station 11, The Glass Hotel, & Sea of Tranquility can be read in any order, or just by themselves.There are a few Easter Eggs linking them, which is a little fun, but not essential.
Thanks @Soubhiville for this #AuthorAMonth

Gissy We didn‘t have the same experience with these books☺️I like to see books reaction. Maybe author‘s style is not for me and I accept I‘m not a fan of some topics discussed in the novels🤷🏽‍♀️ 3w
tpixie @Gissy I didn‘t really enjoy S11 & TGH. I won‘t read anything else of her- I didn‘t like her style either & felt so much more could have been done with those 2 books esp. SoT I didn‘t start liking until there was more time travel/ thriller component. I probably should mark all as so-so & not thumbs up! lol 😝 but I finally got Station Eleven off of my bookshelf, so that‘s great! 😃 3w

Far into the future a time traveler tries to identify and correct an anomaly but faces a difficult challenge: if he knows some people he will interact with are going to die, and he wants to save them, will he be prohibited from further time travel because he‘s changed the timeline of the world? I thoroughly enjoyed this book and its unique storytelling techniques and plot. It was so much better than her first book, The Last Night in Montreal. ⬇️

Starting the 3rd in the Station Eleven ‘Trilogy‘. This one is supposed to have more connections to Station Eleven than The Glass Hotel. Thanks to #AuthorAMonth I was able to get Station Eleven off my bookshelf where it has been sitting since 2017!

PurpleyPumpkin I had heard this was a loose trilogy but that you didn‘t have to read it in order. Now that you‘re almost done, do you think the order enhanced the story/stories? I‘m curious since I‘m not reading in order. 🤔 3w
tpixie @PurpleyPumpkin I just started this book. I had to restart it b/c I‘m not focusing. i think this book is supposed to have more to do w. station 11 than the glass house does.Right now I‘m in the year 1912 & he did just come upon the town that the glass hotel itself is set in. The glass house mentions the Georgia flu& has 2 characters from station 11, but they just are minor characters. The glass house could be read 1st 3w
tpixie @PurpleyPumpkin I don‘t feel like the glass house or station 11 had hardly anything to do with each other. Just a nod — it would not matter if you just read one book or the other. I‘m not far enough into this book to see how they‘re related yet. (edited) 3w
tpixie @PurpleyPumpkin I just started part two of Sea of Tranquility and now my interest and curiosity is peaked. It doesn‘t involve characters from the other two books.! (edited) 3w

I will always Stan Mandel‘s Station Eleven “trilogy”. I love the alternate timelines in each book and how each picks up on different characters from the previous book and spins them in a new way. But my favorite part has to be the autofictional author on book tour in 2201 when a pandemic breaks out. She is an autobuy author for me, and I can‘t wait to see what she writes next!! #AuthorAMonth

In this brief SF novel, a strange phenomenon links various characters separated by space and time: a young British man in 1912, an author visiting Earth from her home on the Moon for a book tour, a bored Moon colonist seeking a more exciting career. Their connection raises questions about the nature of reality itself; is the universe a simulation, and if so, what does it mean for the meaning of life?

I‘ve been pondering this ending since last night, I enjoyed it, it‘s very clever & poetic. A unique interpretation on time travel & simulation hypothesis, more about the human element than the science.

Excellent. A thought provoking addedum (or a sci-fi epilogue) to Station Eleven that was perhaps a bit autobiographical? (Maybe that‘s just my assumption.) Even more relevant to our beyond-pandemic lives today without being navel-gazey.

I think I need to read everything by this author.🥺 #AuthorAMonth

I spent three hours reading this nice mystery novel with a great premise: what if the world and our life are just a simulation?

A time travel agent from 2400 is sent to several periods in the past (1912, 2020, 2200 etc.) in an attempt to investigate an anomaly in the time continuum.

I didn't see the forest for the trees.
Prob not for everyone, but I liked it because people seem to talk about simulation all the time these days. The peek into the future and time travel aspect was fun as well.

I really loved this. We follow several strands at different times in history as the story and links slowly pull together. I loved each and every character, and particularly loved the sections about author Olive Llewelyn as she copes with family life and a pandemic in the moon colonies circa 2400. In fact I‘d read a whole other book about the moon colonies. Brilliant.

After loving Station Eleven and being disappointed in The Glasshotel I was curious to find out what I would think of Mandels third book. I was worried that I would dislike it as well, but after the first few pages my worries were long gone.

I was absorbed by the story and wanted to keep on reading and reading. It wasn't as intense as with SE, but I felt at home in this book and was happy to return to it. I now need to reread The Glasshotel.

Dreamy, quiet, speculative, with a dash of existential dread.
Shades of Greenwood, looking at different moments in time that are paralleled in their anxieties about the present and future, whether humanity will survive. 1/?

Robotswithpersonality As 'messing with time travel is dangerous' is a well worn trope in science fiction, I was glad to see the more compassionate response win out, as well as the nebulous premise of 'simulation hypothesis' floating about to complicate things. 2/? 13mo
Robotswithpersonality I enjoyed that we got an answer to one mystery, and it leaves us pondering many other questions.
I think the nature of this narrative - how we hop about - how we were introduced to multiple characters' lives - means that the reader is prepared for what might be considered an incomplete ending when attached to a different type of story.
Still not going to read Station Eleven. This is as close as I get to a pandemic book. 3/4

This book was so different than I was expecting! It follows the stories of several different people in different time periods. With a mixture of space travel and time travel, they do end up connecting… but I won‘t give it away. In some ways, this book felt more like a series of short stories. I think I‘d have to read it twice to truly get it! 😅 But it was beautifully written.
