The Emperor needs necromancers. The Ninth Necromancer needs a swordswoman. Gideon has a sword, some dirty magazines, and no more time for undead nonsense. Tamsyn Muir's Gideon the Ninth unveils a solar system of swordplay, cut-throat politics, and lesbian necromancers. Her characters leap off the page, as skillfully animated as arcane revenants. The result is a heart-pounding epic science fantasy. Brought up by unfriendly, ossifying nuns, ancient retainers, and countless skeletons, Gideon is ready to abandon a life of servitude and an afterlife as a reanimated corpse. She packs up her sword, her shoes, and her dirty magazines, and prepares to launch her daring escape. But her childhood nemesis won't set her free without a service. Harrowhark Nonagesimus, Reverend Daughter of the Ninth House and bone witch extraordinaire, has been summoned into action. The Emperor has invited the heirs to each of his loyal Houses to a deadly trial of wits and skill. If Harrowhark succeeds she will be become an immortal, all-powerful servant of the Resurrection, but no necromancer can ascend without their cavalier. Without Gideon's sword, Harrow will fail, and the Ninth House will die. Of course, some things are better left dead.… (mere)

I'M LATE TO THE PARTY BUT I HAD A GREAT TIME AND I'M UPSET. IN A WAY IT'S A GOOD THING I WAITED BECAUSE NOW I CAN JUMP RIGHT INTO BOOK TWO!! ( )

My plan is to try and write at least a tiny review of everything I read this year, but this book is making it difficult. I liked it? I found it a little complicated and weird, but wholely engaging. I definitely don't mean weird in a bad way either, it was just pretty unlike any other book I've read. I'm definitely on board for Harrow the Ninth and will probably reread Gideon when it gets closer to coming out. ( )

Viendo que tanta gente no lo ha acabado me hace desear haber hecho eso tambien.

El primer tercio del libro no es salvable. Es aburrido, es cliche y a la vez es confuso.
El segundo tercio es muy bueno, 5 estrellas.
El final es muy peliculero, bien descrito pero meh.

i knew that it was pretty unlikely that i was going to actually like this book, but i wasn't expecting to be so confused by it. i don't know if it's that i really don't read epic sci-fi/fantasy and so am really not used to the world building, or if it was this particular book and writing. but i couldn't picture what was happening most of the time. i never understood the world, not really. and some of the relationships were hard for me to track as well. this made it really, really hard to get into.

the first 75 pages of this book were particularly hard for me. i had no idea what i was reading, what was happening, what the hell she was talking about. i like when the book unfolds as you go and things become clear as you read on, but i needed more of an anchor early on in this one. nothing made sense to me. around page 275 (way too late to keep me happy) this started getting better for me. it was more fun and interesting even when i still didn't quite know what was going on. by the end i was more or less enjoying the writing and the parts of the story that made sense to me, but i was never able to really understand the world or picture what was actually happening. i was mostly able to keep the people straight (who was paired with whom and often even which house they were in) by the end, but not entirely, and i never was able to keep track of which houses were supposed to be associated with which alchemy/magic. (i don't even know if that's the right way to say it.) there were a handful of epic fight scenes that probably people who like fight scenes would appreciate, but that's not my thing either. there were a few mistakes throughout that made it even harder for me to track things (calling a cavalier a necromancer, switching pronouns for someone a couple of times - in a scene where things are really hard to follow anyway, these things very much threw me off and made my understanding of the story take a bit longer).

this is labeled as lgbtq and the blurb on the front cover even claims "lesbian necromancers" and while we know that gideon is at least attracted to women, that's about all we get from the book. there's something to calling a book queer when the point of the story isn't the queerness, but this is only very peripherally queer.

i do think, from the little i understand this book, that the idea is a cool one and is a story that seems interesting. it's just not written for me, at all. (which is fine. i never wanted to pick this up and would never have if it wasn't for a book group. but since i did, i can definitely say that even though this got much, much better by the end, it wasn't for me.)

i did like the voice of both gideon and harrow, and i did like the development of the relationship between them and how we were to understand their clashing personalities. i really liked seeing their relationship become what it did, and i thought this was well handled and was believable. their relationship arc is easily my favorite part of this book. i imagine that some people will read their relationship as a love story, but for me it's a beautiful friendship and more an emotional bond of sisters. i loved watching it evolve. i also really loved that gideon died at the end, as i thought it would have been a cop out if she didn't. but also, she kind of lives on in harrow, which is perfect as well.

„Ich bin Gideon“ ist sprachlich überschäumend, grell und laut wie eine romangewordene Fahrt mit der Geisterbahn. Zugegeben, es gibt Passagen, in denen es noch ein wenig ruckt und rumpelt. Aber Tamsyn Muir ist jung, erst 1985 in Neuseeland geboren und „Ich bin Gideon“ ist ihr Romandebüt. Dieses Debüt ist ihr großartig gelungen.
