The Marrow Thieves
The Marrow Thieves | Cherie Dimaline
In a future world ravaged by global warming, people have lost the ability to dream, and the dreamlessness has led to widespread madness. The only people still able to dream are North America's indigenous population, and it is their marrow that holds the cure for the rest of the world. But getting the marrow, and dreams, means death for the unwilling donors. Driven to flight, a fifteen-year-old and his companions struggle for survival, attempt to reunite with loved ones, and take refuge from the "recruiters" who seek them out to bring them to the marrow-stealing "factories."

A dystopian setting in which most people have lost the ability to dream, with catastrophic psychological results. Indigenous people, who can still dream, are hunted for their marrow to create a serum to treat others.
A great synopsis yet it‘s another YA novel I cannot relate to. Call me a snob, I don‘t know, but this really didn‘t work for me. Note to self: stop reading YA adventures for a while!!

The Marrow Theives is a dystopian novel where the world has destroyed the planet and has lost the ability to dream. That is, almost everyone. The North America Indigenous people can still dream and are hunted for their marrow to save the rest of the world from dreamless sleep. This story follows Frenchie and the people he as made into a family, just wanting to survive.

This was good. I probably would have liked it slightly more in print, because ebooks are not always my friend. This is billed as young adult, but older adults can enjoy this too. There is very little teen romance angst.

Another book I would have enjoyed more if it had existed when I was a teenager but was still quite compelling for me as an adult (prolly cause it wasn't the angsty teenage drama that usually comes in YA?)

I did find the first half of the book quite bleak and while it's not like the second half is suddenly all sunshine, lollipops and rainbows, there are a few moments that shine through that left me with a more uplifted feeling than I expected.

TheLudicReader Reminds me I need to read the sequel. 8mo

I thought that I was going to love this by its premise, dystopian indigenous world where tribes are being hunted by recruiters to be put into schools but where they never return. Too little history of how this came about and the characters just never seemed to be defined. I wanted to love it.

Excellent read. A widely varied group of Indigenous people on the run from people who want their bone marrow to restore dreams. At times heartbreaking. The author is Metis, so the characters are well-drawn. A quick read, it makes you think long after you finish.

The glowing #Reggimendation for this was the push I needed to finally pick it up! I'm with @Reggie - great book. The dystopian setting + indigenous perspective was super powerful, as was how the author integrated the theft of dreams and forced relocation to “schools“ [shudder]. The standard YA dystopian brutality-alongside-teen-identity-and-relationship-stuff - which I like! - was there. But with extra depth and stellar writing. On to Book 2 soon!

readordierachel Love a good Reggimendation! Must get to this one soon 👍🏼 11mo
Reggie Lol, ❤️, I‘m so glad you liked this. I loved the character who was gay but that wasn‘t his identifying characteristic. He was a teacher, a leader, a caretaker, and someone who was in mourning. I just respected Demaline so much for writing someone like that. 11mo
Christine @readordierachel They are golden! Hope you enjoy this when you get to it! 11mo

Best book I‘ve read all year. Indigenous people are being hunted in a climate change ravaged world where people have stopped dreaming and the only cure is the bone marrow of indigenous people. We follow teenage Frenchie as he and his group of found family must navigate the wilderness and come back in touch with who they are. This book was scary, poignant, tender and everything I wanted in a coming of age tale. All the dystopian picks!!!

squirrelbrain Best book you‘ve read all year?! Now *that‘s* some recommendation - stacked! 12mo

Reggie @Ruthiella I believe so, like a year ago? Or 2 years ago. After the weather events this week, this book also hit on future climate events concerns in me. In the book, both of our coasts are gone. The Great Lakes I believe have turned to mud. It gets real scary without even talking about the 7 kids just trying to survive. 12mo

Although stronger in some parts than others, overall this is an excellent post-apocalyptic novel. Dimaline's one-step-from-reality plot reminds me a little of Margaret Atwood's MaddAddam trilogy, how Atwood intentionally made everything that happens in that trilogy something that had already happened in real life somewhere. The Marrow Thieves is particularly chilling because I can't quite dismiss it as outrageous.

CuriousG I feel exactly the same way about this one! Are you planning on reading the sequel to it? I believe it was just released a few weeks ago. 13mo
ImperfectCJ @CuriousG I only just now discovered the sequel while posting my review. I might have to check it out. There are definitely some unresolved questions I have after finishing this first book. How about you? Are you planning to read the sequel? 13mo

BookwormM You had me at Atwood 13mo
ImperfectCJ @BookwormM I've been thinking about this since I saw your comment. Just to make sure I'm not engaging in false advertising, it's just that one particular approach to dystopia that reminds me of Atwood. The tone is different from Atwood, a little like Michelle Paver's Chronicles of Ancient Darkness, a little like Paul Tremblay's Cabin at the End of the World, but not completely like either of those. 13mo

This was good. I had a bit of trouble getting into it at the very start, but it only took a couple of chapters. I didn‘t like one of the decisions Frenchie made near the end of the book, but that ended up working out better than I‘d expected. I also thought the very end was unrealistic, but it was good up to that point. It‘s a pretty fast read

YA, dystopian read. It is helpful if you know some history of the Native people of Canada. Mentions of residential schools, hair, language all have much more clarity if you do.
I enjoyed this book. It is well written, the pacing is just right, the characters are interesting. I do wish it had been longer though. I could have lived in this book much more - would have loved deeper past stories of each characters.

Nebklvr One of the best dystopian novels I have read. 14mo

The story is great with just enough detail, to let your own imagination fill in the dystopian horrors- both social and environmental. But best is the writing style- observant, compassionate, allowing enough poetic description to wonder but never heavy handed, with a thrill of pace that keeps picking up until the end.

3 STARS - Cherie Dimaline is a new-to-me Canadian Indigenous author and while her book The Marrow Thieves has won numerous awards, it was a bit of a miss for me.

I hate that I didn't love it because it includes many relevant issues that affect our Indigenous population, but I felt disconnected & frustrated with its vague explanations of setting & premise.

This was very different to the fantasy I normally pick up. Set in a world similar to our own, in the future where people have lost the ability to dream. A post apocalyptic setting, but not your average fantasy go to. There is strong character development in this book & the backstory of characters is given to us piecemeal along their journey for survival

I finally read this YA dystopian novel where people perceived as being indigenous are kidnapped in hopes their bodies will help everyone else regain the ability to dream. The novel is more about the groups of people living on the run and the ways they connect and build community - very little is about the mad scientist component (this is okay but was a bit surprising based on how much it is included in most summaries of the book.) ↘️

ReadingEnvy Also in the background are the history of the "residential schools," climate change, and human-directed environmental destruction. It's set in the future so California is gone, the Great Lakes are toast, etc.

If you waffle on YA, there is much less angst than in the Hunger Games or Divergent. The majority of the novel features characters from a broader range of ages.↘️

I'm not crying, you're crying.
Indigenous speculative fiction is apparently in my wheelhouse. After climate change and pollution have ravaged the land and a plague has caused many to lose the ability to dream, indigenous people are hunted and harvested for their immunity. Mirroring the way these groups have had to continually adapt and fight for survival throughout the last several hundred years, a moving dystopian tale. #integrateyourshelf

This book felt like it was missing something. I enjoyed many of the themes presented in the story, but I would‘ve liked some elements to have been more fleshed out. I also liked the characters - they felt like real people, even though plot-wise there were a few moments of predictability. But Overall, it was just an okay read for me.

The Marrow Thieves takes place in the mid-21st century, after environmental catastrophes have ravaged the world. Those that remain are unable to dream. Except for the Indigenous population, that is. Convinced they are key to the cure for dreamlessness, Indigenous Peoples are hunted down and sent to ‘schools‘. This is the story of Frenchie, who, along with a small group of companions, must stay hidden in the wilderness to avoid capture. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Really could have done without the fat kid side character named Slopper. And I‘m not sure how many times you‘re actually allowed to pull the “but little did we know, life as we know it was about to change forever” method of creating a cliffhanger, but it‘s got to be fewer times than it is attempted here.

But still it was affecting. And that ending took me OUT.

This book is so, so good—the kind you start recommending before you‘re even done. It is about the past, and the present, and the future; death and life; fleeing and fighting; love and hate and fear; the worst and best of human nature. It is a compulsively readable novel, short and beautiful, like a long exhale after holding your breath too long; a lesson in the never-ending cycle of our broken, painful, dehumanizing history. I REALLY recommend it.
