Miryem is the daughter and granddaughter of moneylenders, but her father's inability to collect his debts has left his family on the edge of poverty--until Miryem takes matters into her own hands. Hardening her heart, the young woman sets out to claim what is owed and soon gains a reputation for being able to turn silver into gold. When an ill-advised boast draws the attention of the king of the Staryk--grim fey creatures who seem more ice than flesh--Miryem's fate, and that of two kingdoms, will be forever altered. Set an impossible challenge by the nameless king, Miryem unwittingly spins a web that draws in a peasant girl, Wanda, and the unhappy daughter of a local lord who plots to wed his child to the dashing young tsar. But Tsar Mirnatius is not what he seems. And the secret he hides threatens to consume the lands of humans and Staryk alike. Torn between deadly choices, Miryem and her two unlikely allies embark on a desperate quest that will take them to the limits of sacrifice, power, and love.… (mere)

I wasn’t planning to read this one because I hated Uprooted so much, but I’m glad I gave it a go. Absolutely spectacular storytelling. ( )

This book was recommended to me by my step sister and I am so glad I read it! I enjoyed how the author would introduce characters early on and would later give each of them a narrative role. It is on the lighter side of fantasy, meaning the reader does not have to struggle with learning everything about an alternate world. Instead, the book reads like a normal fiction book. The characters are very interesting and the story was captivating. It was definitely one of those books that I didn't want to end. I recommend this book to anyone interested in fantasy, strong female characters, mystery, twists and turns, family and friendship. ( )

This book is everything that a fairy-tale retelling should be. 2 (minor) complaints: too many perspectives that weren't always clearly defined, and not enough romance (a smidgen more would have been lovely.)

Despite that- I had a difficult time putting this one down... A well-crafted spin (ha!) on a beloved fairy tale. ( )
  bookwyrmqueen | Oct 25, 2021 |
I have a lot of mixed feelings. It was a good book, well written. It incorporated so many different fairytales into one complex, fairly empowering story of women twisting tropes on their heads, using intelligence and savvy and raw guts to get out of difficult situations. I even saw a nodd towards one of my favorite fairytale factoids (that werewolves were a way of discussing domestic violence and arose out of that lack of language which we have in modern times.)

But the six...seven?? (I lost track) first person point of views felt dizzying at times, flipping from one to the next sometimes even within the same chapter. I'd say the start is quite slow as the pieces slowly assemble and characters move into place. And the magic in the Staryk realm didn't make sense to me. I think for this one, you buy into it or you don't (that brags fulfilled translate into reality, basically.)

I'm also a little uneasy with the relationships portrayed. I remember feeling this way with Uprooted, too. There's big red flags for me in most fantasy romance arcs, and Novik isn't exempt from that.

Still, I gave it 4 stars because I think it has a lot to offer, is compulsively readable, and excellently structured. I'll still read her books in future (having read all of Temeraire) and would still recommend her to fantasy fans looking for an iconic female fantasy author. ( )

Naomi Novik published this book in 2018 and it won the 2019 Locus Award for Best Fantasy Novel. It was also nominated for 2019 Hugo Award for Best Novel. To me it is three things; a retelling of Rumpelstiltskin, a mythic fable exploring mankind’s battle with winter, and the story of the powerless finding hope, strength and ultimately the power to overcome evil and subjugation. It is the third aspect that gave me the most enjoyment. I’m somehow fascinated with stories that deal with the underdog, whether it’s the Hobbits in Lord of the Rings, or Gandhi verses the British Empire. The ability of the downtrodden’s ability to find influence especially through non-violence, never fails to spark enthusiasm and intrigue for me.

Honestly, this was not a quick read for me, in fact at many points, I found it to be laborious. But I never wanted to give up, I somehow knew that the ending would be satisfying, and it was. Novik tells the tale from many character perspectives and this is jarring at first. In fact, she occasionally retells a scene, from an alternate perspective, which I found unusual and it caused me to step out of the story momentarily to contemplate the technique. However, after a while, I accepted this, and it became a game to me, to see how quickly I could deduce which character’s point of view was taken in a new section. As a reader, I do like to work a little!

The plot follows largely follows three women, all who’s dismal future is laid out in front of them, and all who dare to fight against that future. Their stories are entwined in excellent ways. The story also weaves components of the Rumpelstiltskin myth and the parable of human’s struggle against winter. Novak’s prose feels like a classic fairy tale without feeling old-fashioned or dated.

A slower paced, but enjoyable fable with great fantasy worldbuilding, intertwined themes and characters, and a strong and satisfying ending. ( )

[A] book of not very comforting stories, a big and meaty novel, rich in both ideas and people, with the vastness of Tolkien and the empathy and joy in daily life of Le Guin.

Spinning Silver follows in the tradition set by Robin McKinley of fairy-tale worlds populated by fairy-tale characters who feel like real people, and of princesses with strength and agency. But it moves the tradition forward. It’s a bright new installment from an author who’s poised to become one of the definitive YA voices of her era.

I'm in awe of how Novik spins moldy, hateful straw into warm and glimmering gold.
tilføjet af aspirit | RedigerNPR Books, Amal El-Mohtar (Jul 17, 2018)
 
In spare prose of great clarity Novik weaves in and out of multiple first-person narratives in sometimes-illuminating, sometimes-disconcerting or confusing ways, exploring human and alien social structures and ethnic prejudices, fathers and daughters, damaged relationships and hidden agendas, wringing unexpected consequences from seemingly simple choices.
tilføjet af melmore | RedigerKirkus Reivews (Jul 10, 2018)
 
This gorgeous, complex, and magical novel, grounded in Germanic, Russian, and Jewish folklore but richly overlaid with a cohesive, creative story of its own, rises well above a mere modern re- imagining of classic tales.
