Publisher Description

NATIONAL BESTSELLER • An audacious, darkly glittering novel set in the eerie days of civilization’s collapse—the spellbinding story of a Hollywood star, his would-be savior, and a nomadic group of actors roaming the scattered outposts of the Great Lakes region, risking everything for art and humanity. Now an original series on HBO Max. Over one million copies sold!

Kirsten Raymonde will never forget the night Arthur Leander, the famous Hollywood actor, had a heart attack on stage during a production of King Lear. That was the night when a devastating flu pandemic arrived in the city, and within weeks, civilization as we know it came to an end.

Twenty years later, Kirsten moves between the settlements of the altered world with a small troupe of actors and musicians. They call themselves The Traveling Symphony, and they have dedicated themselves to keeping the remnants of art and humanity alive. But when they arrive in St. Deborah by the Water, they encounter a violent prophet who will threaten the tiny band’s existence. And as the story takes off, moving back and forth in time, and vividly depicting life before and after the pandemic, the strange twist of fate that connects them all will be revealed.

Look for Emily St. John Mandel’s bestselling new novel, Sea of Tranquility!

Sweet 'n Sad

Nicely written apocalypse tale, written non-chronologically, which adds some texture to their "before" lives. Demerits for ignoring solar panels... a few of those scatterd about would have kept a few laptops running here and there.

NO Chapters or Section Guides in the AudioBook version

This is an epic story. The book has received acclaim. But, this audiobook is too challenging. The only content reference is the track numbers. There are 133 tracks in this book. There are no chapter headings or ways to give any contextual references as to where the tracks are in the story. The story bounces back and forth in time, place and numerous characters. This makes for a lot of non-sequitur gaps that, when only listening are too hard to follow. I’ve tried to get the chapters or contact someone in Apple re: this audiobook. No luck. This was a gift from a friend. She is listening to it in audible and she has the chapter listings. The voice actor reading is great; but the poor execution is extremely frustrating. If Audible can list chapters, Apple should be able to as well!
