Finished last month for #AuthorAMonth
This was so enthralling, I couldn't stop listening. I loved the interconnected stories of Ruth & Nao and the subtle magical realism throughout. The characters were so well crafted and the story slow & gentle yet compelling. 5⭐

This book has such a 2020-2021 vibe that I didn‘t pick up on the first time I read it. It all comes together beautifully at the end. I don‘t know how Emily St John Mandel did it.

You don‘t have to read Station Eleven, The Glass Hotel, and this all in a row, but thanks to #AuthorAMonth I did and it was a great experience. @Soubhiville

I really liked this although I can barely tell you why. It's just well written. And once it gets going it flows quite well.

My book club at work picked this off a short list of suggestions. It's almost like I planned this. And then the senior director of our business unit signed up. Yikes. I gave my library copy to my intern because there's extra time. Hopefully she won't lose it. 😂

When this book first came out I skipped it because I had no desire to read about a Ponzi scheme. Thanks to #authoramonth I decided to give it a try and I really liked it. Yes,there is a Ponzi scheme in these pages but also so much more as we meet several brilliantly rendered characters, whose lives cross each other‘s sometimes briefly and sometimes not. I was ensnared by the weaving of their stories and enjoyed every moment of it.

5feet.of.fury I LOVED this book! I was so glad no one tried to explain the plot to me because I probably wouldn‘t have read it 😅 4d
Bookwormjillk I had to read this one twice before I properly appreciated it. 4d

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.

Soubhiville Time travel is a trope I usually avoid, but I really liked this one! 4d

I absolutely loved Station Eleven and The Sea of Tranquility, so I was disappointed to find this one a bit of a snooze. I just didn't care about any of the characters or their journeys. I picked this one up for #AuthorAMonth, and now wish I had gone with The Glass Hotel instead 😂. @Soubhiville

Interesting story about a young mother who makes a desperate choice, and the consequences of that choice years in the future. The structure of going back and forth in time made sense for the narrative, but the POV shifts made it hard for me to connect with any of the characters. There‘s also a LOT of commentary about the soulless nature of suburbia.

Not my favorite of hers but still worthwhile.

Name sighting! It‘s always nice to see it in print, even though the audiobook narrator pronounces it the “other” way 🤷🏻‍♀️

This book was about a woman who leaves her boyfriend out of the blue one morning and his quest to find her and her's to finally stop traveling.
It was okay, a really interesting premise, but I didn't really like or connect with any of the characters.
