"Edwin St. Andrew is eighteen years old when he crosses the Atlantic by steamship, exiled from polite society following an ill-conceived diatribe at a dinner party. He enters the forest, spellbound by the beauty of the Canadian wilderness, and suddenly hears the notes of a violin echoing in an airship terminal--an experience that shocks him to his core. Two centuries later a famous writer named Olive Llewellyn is on a book tour. She's traveling all over Earth, but her home is the second moon colony, a place of white stone, spired towers, and artificial beauty. Within the text of Olive's best-selling pandemic novel lies a strange passage: a man plays his violin for change in the echoing corridor of an airship terminal as the trees of a forest rise around him. When Gaspery-Jacques Roberts, a detective in the black-skied Night City, is hired to investigate an anomaly in the North American wilderness, he uncovers a series of lives upended: The exiled son of an earl driven to madness, a writer trapped far from home as a pandemic ravages Earth, and a childhood friend from the Night City who, like Gaspery himself, has glimpsed the chance to do something extraordinary that will disrupt the timeline of the universe"--From the publisher's web site.… (més)

Time-travel science fiction mystery, light-touch in both the science fiction and mystery. Strong pandemic theme. If we have to have pandemic literature, this isn't a bad example. The whole thing is nicely structured and written, clips along well, some cute observation and imagination. The structure does mean it lacks a sort of central narrative figure till late on, though the advantage is that the plot ends up coming together nicely. The British posho character's dialogue is off in terms of tone and vocabulary but the rest of it is good. All in all a fine four-hour read but not one to revisit again and again (cover copy praise is wildly overblown). ( )

It has time-travelling, and a plot that turns out to make sense. I wasn’t really into it at first, but loved the ending. ( )

Another time travel book, but one I found more satisfying this time.

In 1912 18 year old Edward St. John St. Andrew, the younger son of an aristocratic English family, has been sent to Canada to make something of himself. When he wanders into a remote forest in Vancouver Island, he becomes connected to a chain of events continuing over the centuries. In 2020 Mirella Kessler is trying to find out what has become of her friend Vincent, who once took a strange video of the very same spot on Vancouver Island. In 2203 author Olive Llewelyn tours Earth as a pandemic takes hold, promoting her best-selling book Mariebad, all the while missing her husband and daughter on Moon Colony 2 terribly. And in 2401 Gaspary Jaques Roberts, a native of that same moon colony, is intrigued to discover that a glitch in time seems to link all these three people. But how can time have a glitch? Gradually, the disparate threads come together to form a satisfying conclusion.

I enjoyed Emily St. John Mandel's Station Eleven a lot. This is a slighter book, scarcely more than a novella, but well worth a read. ( )

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. ( )

Edwin St. John St. Andrew, eighteen years old, hauling the weight of his double-sainted name across the Atlantic by steamship, eyes narrowed against the wind on the upper deck: he holds the railing with gloved hands, impatient for a glimpse of the unknown, trying to discern something--anything!--beyond sea and sky, but all he sees are shades of endless gray.

Illness frightens us because it's chaotic. There's an aweful randomness about it. (p. 83)
But doesn't everything seem obvious in retrospect? (p. 92)
Was the death of the prophet in "Marienbad" too anticlimatic? It seemed possible ... -- but on the other hand, isn't that reality? Won't most of us die in fairly unclimatic ways, our passing unremembered by almost everyone, our deaths becoming plot points in the narrative of the people around us? (p. 95)
You can say "It's the end of the world" and mean it, but what gets lost in that kind of careless usage is that the world will eventually literally end.... But then they found the grave of another four-year-old girl.... "If her parents loved ," Meiying said, "it would have felt like the end of the world." (p. 103-104)
If we were living in a simulation, how would we know it was a simulation? (p. 129)
