REVIEW: Sea of Tranquility

Emily St. John Mandel does it again… I slept on this one a little bit because pandemic dystopia felt a little too raw when this one came out. But Station Eleven is also pandemic fiction and it’s one of my all time favorites.This one is equally unique and layered and heartbreaking.

I’m not even going to try to summarize other than to say you get a little of the artistic depth you also get in Station Eleven as well as characters who make unexpected choices. While the chapters are short and the time in each period is short, there is so much emotion and each is really thought provoking.

It’s definitely a book you need to focus on to read, it skips time periods and has time travel with lots of characters. But if you stick with it, it’s worth it, the ending is a wow. Also, love that part of it takes place on a moon colony!

Thanks to Knopf for the gifted copy. All opinions above are my own.

If you had the opportunity to time travel, would you take it? Would you go forward or backward in time?
