Three terrible things happen in a single day. Essun, masquerading as an ordinary schoolteacher in a quiet small town, comes home to find that her husband has brutally murdered their son and kidnapped their daughter. Mighty Sanze, the empire whose innovations have been civilization's bedrock for a thousand years, collapses as its greatest city is destroyed by a madman's vengeance. And worst of all, across the heartland of the world's sole continent, a great red rift has been torn which spews ash enough to darken the sky for years. Or centuries. But this is the Stillness, a land long familiar with struggle, and where orogenes -- those who wield the power of the earth as a weapon -- are feared far more than the long cold night. Essun has remembered herself, and she will have her daughter back. She does not care if the world falls apart around her. Essun will break it herself, if she must, to save her daughter.… (mere)

After a few chapters, I was expecting a heavy-handed treatise on global warming. Instead, I was treated to an excellent dystopian fantasy world with excellent characters, fantastic world-building, and a compelling plot. The only thing keeping it from a fifth star is that a third of the book is written in second person and I really dislike second person narratives that are not a Choose Your Own Adventure style book.

I truly appreciated that Jemisin respects her audience to not info dump everything little thing about her world. It was refreshing to not have a three page long treatise on what a "comm" was just because we don't use the word that way in our world.

The characterizations were outstanding. Every time the perspective changed, I was sad because I wanted to continue following the current characters. At least for a page and then I was fully engrossed in the next set and did not want to leave them either. This eased a bit once I realized that Damaya, Syenite, and Essun were the same person in different stages of her life.

All in all, an excellent book and I look forward to the next. ( )

I couldn't get more than about 30 minutes into the audiobook. Boring, but the bigger issue is that it's told in 2nd person. I can barely tolerate a short story like that - dreaded the thought of a full novel /trilogy of being told what I'm doing.
Finally, this is my own fault, but I didn't realize the world wasn't Earth, even though it's right there on the tin. Maybe later on it would be revealed to be Earth far in the future, but I didn't have the patience for that. I was looking forward to a post - apocalyptic story of alien invasion. Seems I picked the wrong book

The story-telling style was difficult for me to follow although interesting. The magic was cool. I found the graphic sexuality and ethics surprising and distasteful to me. ( )

Unfortunately, Ms. Jemisin and I are not a match. I’ve consistently been intrigued by her ideas and creative character- and world-building, but just as consistently been left cold. And it’s no expection here.

First of all: incredible world and character creation (re: the Stone eaters), totally original.

But there is a LOT left unsaid/implied, and I’m not sure I picked up on everything I was supposed to (and then just made me annoyed by the end, like “just tell me! Don’t hint around it”). And I didn’t
quite understand Essun’s character in regards to her children: she never wanted children (great!) and acknowledged that they’d ruin her body, but she had to have Corbu. Once he was born, I appreciated that she didn’t really change her mind and become baby-crazy, she still wanted her independence and her own life. If it had been left here, that would’ve been great. I always say we need more stories about woman who don’t want kids and know it and doesn’t change her mind even when she has them. But THEN, we find out that she had two more kids with her husband, even though she clearly states she didn’t want them. And when Alabaster asks, she says no but considers going off birth control. And then, once she’s mourning Uche, there’s absolutely no mention of her other son, who also died traumatically. It just seems like Jemisin didn’t quite have a hold on that aspect of Essun. Also, I’m not sure of the minerals correspond to our real-world minerals? I looked up Maxixe, which Jemisin says is a artist-quality turquoise, but I could only find it as a kind of beryl. Same with syenite; when I googled it I found a kind of granite, but it seems like it’s supposed to be some kind of deep sea non-composite rock? If you want to use your own worlds minerals, that’s fine, but maybe name them something else?

My last critiques: everything was vaguely predictable. Of COURSE all three narrators were the same person, of COURSE Hoa is a stone eater, of COURSE Syenite ends up killing Corbu rather than letting him end up in the hands of the fulcrum ... nothing really shocked me. And the writing would weirdly switch from formal And distant to colloquial and familiar without any really rhyme or reason, and not often enough to meld into a cohesive style. ( )

I know why it took me so long to read this. But I'm glad I did. I don't have the words to describe the writing. It has a way to hit you where it hurts.

The words before the story starts are very well chosen:

"For all those who have to fight for the respect that everyone else is given without question."

And yet it's not just about that. It's woven into the story but that's not what the story is about. I love that. The writing is superb. Every voice is distinct. And some things I never saw coming.

But oh. So much heartbreak. So much rage. So few moments of joy.

Dit is wat je moet onthouden: het einde van het ene verhaal
is alleen maar het begin van het volgende.
Dit is immers al eerder gebeurd. Mensen gaan door.
Oude ordes vergaan. Nieuwe samenlevingen worden geboren.
Als we zeggen dat 'de wereld is vergaan', is dat meestal een leugen, want de planeet maakt het prima.
Maar zo vergaat de wereld
Zo vergaat de wereld.
Zo vergaat de wereld.
