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.… (mehr)

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.

There's definitely a reason that everyone is talking this book up. The premise and worldbuilding are fascinating, the writing engaging, It makes you want to pick up the next installment immediately.

The one thing that I found a bit disappointing was related to the reveal that the three protagonists are actually one woman at various points in her life. While it is conceptually quite cool, I feel like Jemisin may have missed a trick by not really doing much with the idea. Part of it may be just that I guessed the twist a bit earlier than I was maybe supposed to, so anticipating for so long made me think that the revelation would carry a bit more weight to it-- that it would shed a profound new light on each of the three separate narratives when you realize how they are tied together. Instead, there's really no plot development that couldn't have been just as easily accomplished had Damaya, Syen, and Essun remained three different people. I guess the idea might be it's more of a character-based revelation-- that we get a unique perspective on all three sections of her life by knowing more about what came before or will come after. But that doesn't really happen either, imo.

For example, we already know that Syen was born outside the Fulcrum from her chapters, and we can assume she had a pretty traumatic childhood like Damaya, so what is added by knowing that it was actually Damaya's childhood? Damaya is already better at orogeny than her classmates and resents the Fulcrum, so it's not surprising she would go on to do exceptional things and eventually escape from the Fulcrum. And, most bewilderingly to me, why do we never get an exploration of how Essun's reaction to her youngest child's murder is shaped by the fact that years ago she was forced to kill her first child when she was Syen?

I can even imagine some differences that could have benefited from the revelation of the three characters being one-- if Damaya had, after leaving her town where she was ostracized, been really relieved to leave that small isolated comm of stills (but then you realize later that she was forced to live in the same kind of place when she became Essun!), or if Essun had mentioned being bored and restless as a mother and finds a secret thrill in traveling and facing adversity even at such a terrible cost (and you realize later it's because she misses the excitement of her past life and the freedom of Meov), or if Syen and Baster's child had been revealed to be the now-missing Nassun (and you realize what a powerful orogene she must be and how much more danger she is in). That last one I had actually originally assumed would be the case and I'm quite surprised it wasn't.

The whole things is also made more frustrating by the ways that Jemisin is forced to cheat to keep her characters ostensibly separate until they're not-- Essun only reverting to thinking in a Syen-ish way after we already know she is Syen, Syen never thinking about Schaffa until the very end when we already know he's her Guardian, Essun not recognizing Tonkee until she's allowed to by the narrative, etc. Each individual thing is explainable and sometimes even a nice development, but all together it's a bit frustrating, like Damaya/Syen/Essun is performing for the benefit of the reader.

Okay, I realize I've talked for such a long time about this one aspect I didn't care for, but that's only because I felt like this was the one thing that let down an otherwise great book, which is a shame. I would love to know what other people thought of the reveal and if it was more satisfying to them than it was to me.


Anyway, excited to read the next one! I get the sense that the trilogy is really more of a single story that just happens to spread over three books. ( )

Probably fantasy fans would rate this higher than I did. I didn't realize it was more fantasy than sci-fi. It was a well told and well-plotted story, and of course, since it's a trilogy, it ended on a cliff-hanger, but I just can't buy the stone people or the Orogenes, able to move mountains with their thoughts. And if there's a larger message here, I missed it. ( )

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.
Voor de laatste keer.
