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)

Holy crap that was good! THis book was a labyrinth. A slow, wandering, desperate, sad and exciting look into a dystopia that was truly frightening.

I really don't have the words for this one. It was completely unexpected and I just....wow. I consider myself truly lucky to have stumbled on Ms Jemisin. So, so good. I recommend to anyone that loves fantasy.

In addition, the narration by Robin Miles was superb. She was perfection. ( )

I really enjoyed this world and story, though the twist with the POVs and characters was not my favorite. I'm looking forward to the rest of the series. ( )

This trilogy is worth getting into. ( )

I don't enjoy dystopias or apocalypse stories, so this is pretty far outside my usual. I enjoyed it to the extent it was like sci fi rather than fantasy:

* Lots of geology! Lots and lots of geology!! Deciphering their technobabble was honestly one of my favorite parts of the book.

* Lots of thinking about different ways a society can be organized with respect to its orogene citizens. Although... the thesis that the nicest societies (e.g. the island) are the ones where you just let the people with inborn power be in charge of everything is questionable, and I hope it'll be complicated more in the next books.

The fantasy parts I wasn't as impressed with include the Chosen One-ness of Alabaster and Syenite and some of the less justified biology, like the herbivorous/carnivorous pets with the long fantasy name and everything to do with stone eaters (so far, although again, maybe it'll be addressed more in a subsequent book).

I am a big fan of the trans woman character and I kind of identify with her approach to life, lol.

The writing was mechanically very good; I guess it's considered a spoiler that Damaya, Syenite, and "you"/Essun are all the same person but I caught on to that pretty early in the book.

THIS BOOK IS ENTIRELY MADE OF UPSETTING AND POTENTIALLY TRIGGERING CONTENT, TREAD WITH CAUTION. ( )

Incredible. Believe the goddamn hype. Sometimes, I really dislike the Goodreads star system, where a five-star is "amazing". What about when a book pushes all the boundaries of fantasy in ways you were never expecting? N.K. Jemisin has written a heartbreaking tragedy, a masterfully built world, a beautiful romance, and a pointed political critique. They're all called [b:The Fifth Season|19161852|The Fifth Season (The Broken Earth, #1)|N.K. Jemisin|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1386803701s/19161852.jpg|26115977].

The tragedy is painful. Unlike some other fantasy where you think the feelings are so much larger than life they become intellectualised, more explorations of emotion than experiences of it, the pain of the characters is incredibly relatable and deeply felt. I love the world of the Stillness, the feelings when orogeny is described, the histories of conquest, the neat mappings of culture - comms, stonelore - to the pecularities of the Stillness' tectonics. The characters' loves are unexpected, gripping, and thankfully inclusive. It's not merely refreshing to see nonwhite, nonstraight relationships, but a genuine load lifted; it's a moment of gratitude that this can be written and can exist in the world of fantasy. I love my classic fantasy as much as anyone, and I have always been ready to defend it; I identified with Kvothe and Kaladin and Rand al'Thor. But until I read Alabaster, I hadn't realised how much of a difference it can make to have those commonalities of identity with characters. 'Baster's identities not only helped me understand him, but also (ironically, since this is a fantasy novel) made me feel remarkably normalised and accepted.

Of course, not all of the characters' identities are so easily borne. The dedication is, after all, made out to all those who have to fight for the respect that everyone else is given without question. Hatred for orogenes in the Stillness is incredibly virulent; this despite the physical power that they can display. The parallels are extremely obvious - after all, the primary slur for orogenes is "rogga". I don't know how best to interpret the parallels though. Is the power, refined by control, an statement of what black people and our other oppressed have, latent? Is it meant to indicate the futility of respectability politics, when extreme focus on that control doesn't lead to any kind of better life? Is it a mirror to the horrors that mainstream society is willing to stomach? To be clear, this is not just allegory, it's also beautiful prose, but certainly part of that beauty comes through the allegorical lens. When the Big Bad is really just us, just everybody, what exactly can you do about it? Apparently, nothing except the end of the world, for the last time. ( )
