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."

YA dystopian fiction featuring Indigenous people, importance of history & memory. Environmental destruction has devastated the world. 16-year-old Frenchie has lost his family and is on the run with a small band of Native Americans. Indigenous people are being rounded up and put in “schools” so that their ability to dream, which non-Indigenous people have lost, can be harvested. https://cannonballread.com/2019/08/the-marrow-thieves-elcicco/

I have spent a few days avoiding this book, so I think it‘s time to call it quits. I LOVE the indigenous people aspect of this story, unfortunately that was the only interesting part to me. The author got distracted immersing us in “Story” (a part of the indigenous culture), that she forgot about the...story. 🤷🏻‍♀️😅

So different than expected - a dystopian novel about Canadian First Nations. Society has devolved and people no longer dream - except the First Nations descendants who are hunted by the white people to have their marrow extracted to steal their dreams. Families are separated, violence ensues, and no one knows who to trust. The message is important (love conquers all), but the novel was confusing. Hoped to like this more than I did.

A fascinating premise & the author uses this dystopian to explore the history of mistreating indigenous people. At the same time, I often found the writing difficult to make sense of, & it doesn't explore the premise for most of the book. I often had to reread to be sure I read a scene correctly. Also, b/c of lack of development, I often confused/forgot characters - which rarely happens to me. I did like that it had a message of hope & strength.

Cherie Dimaline's The Marrow Thieves blew me away. @teachingtheapocalypse sent it my way so we can discuss it on our @unabridgedpod episode focusing on Global Read Aloud selections. Those choices are typically great, but this book . . . wow. Dimaline has woven a book of equal parts gorgeous writing, Indian culture, and an all-too-realistic, post-apocalyptic world. (continued in comments)

UnabridgedPod I wrote down quotations from nearly every page, gasping in astonishment at each new revelation. The protagonist, Frenchie, is wrested from everything in his past as his brother Mitch is taken by The Recruiters, representatives of the new society hungry for the ability to dream, found only in the marrow of Indians. The book is horrifying and hopeful and spun through with stories of past and present. I can't wait to talk about it on the podcast. 4mo

The Marrow Thieves was a clear standout. While the New Jim Crow should be required reading, I absolutely adored The Marrow Thieves. Honorable mention also goes to The Power.

A wonderful, horrifying book. As someone who dreams intensely, the thought of not being able to dream at all anymore sounds like a brain damage I couldn‘t live with. I don‘t think the solution they came up with is one I could live with, either.

Next up on my #newyearwhodis list is The Marrow Thieves. I love this dedication 😍

I‘ve seen a few littens posting about this one so it‘s been on my TBR list for awhile. Decided I needed something short and quick first before I dive in to The Namesake.

TheKidUpstairs I'm so impressed with how many books you've gotten to this month! I hope you're enjoying reading some of my 2018 faves, I know I've loved reading from your list. Definitely discovered some great reads that I wouldn't have otherwise. I'll be hanging onto your list as a reference to keep reading from throughout the year. Which book has been your favourite? While I've read some fantastic books this month, I think this one stole my heart: 8mo
MeganAnn @TheKidUpstairs aww thanks! I was actually hoping to finish one or two more this month but life got in the way. I've loved reading from your list as well! Discovered some great books I may never have picked up otherwise as well... and I'm planning to keep reading off you list too! I have a couple on my shelves I didn't get to, but really want to read. The Namesake I have from the library so I'll read that into Feb. before I bring it back. 8mo
MeganAnn @TheKidUpstairs I've read some great books, but I think my overall favorite was Educated because it was unexpected. I don't read much nonfiction and can probably count the number of memoirs I've read on one hand. So the fact that I loved it so much was completely unexpected for me. ❤️ 8mo

In a survivalist, apocalyptic landscape ruined by global warming & human greed, people have lost the ability to dream & are mad with the loss. The Indigenous people of North America, however, are the exception. It‘s discovered that their dreams can be harvested from their bone marrow; thus, they are (again) being hunted.

I was drawn to this book by the fantastical premise (& by my interest in reading #ownvoices texts).

*Cont‘d in comments👇

monalyisha 1/5: Weirdly, what worked *best* for me about this novel wasn‘t the magic. In fact, some of the fantastical elements seemed to come on suddenly & need more development (more on this in a later comment, marked for spoilers). What worked best for me was the abjectly harsh realism contrasted by the poetry of Dimaline‘s language when describing (what‘s left of) the natural world, memory, & customs. (edited) 10mo
monalyisha 2/5: I read this book in fits & starts (which was my own stupid brain‘s fault; I forgot the book at home more than once). I think I would‘ve liked it more if I‘d been able to read it in a way that matched the natural flow of the Story. It‘s also told in fits & starts, as the small group travels difficult terrain & avoids present dangers, but its intentional breaks did not line up my own. (edited) 10mo
monalyisha 3/5: By the time the novel drew to its conclusion, however, almost morphing genres as it did so (the romance element rises, like smoke, to the top), I was smitten. This story is soft & jagged, violent & vibrant — & I look forward to reading more from Cherie Dimaline. (edited) 10mo
See All 12 Comments
monalyisha 4/5: SPOILER AHEAD: The piece that felt underdeveloped to me is when Minerva destroys the school (the equipment meant to steal her dreams & the entire goddamn building!) by singing in her native tongue. The end of that chapter, when the campers “pulled the air over their heads & faces, making prayers out of ashes & smoke”) is EXTREMELY powerful. And I love that it‘s *sacred WORDS* that knock down a corrupt institution! But...(next comment). (edited) 10mo
monalyisha 5/5: BUT — I felt like more work needed to be done earlier-on to establish the effect that Minerva‘s words have, & their power. It‘s clear that Frenchie hoards them & values them as if they‘re treasure, but that seems purely sentimental. I think there needs to be more of a set-up for their PHYSICAL power being made manifest: shivers coursing through bodies, changes in the air, etc etc. I LOVE the idea but felt it needed just a bit more groundwork.

monalyisha @tpixie that‘s intentional. I don‘t think there‘s anything spoiler-y in the first three, but there are spoilers in the last two. My first three comments can stand alone with the main post as the full review; the last two are more detailed explanations. (edited) 10mo

This is a story to experience! Part of the One Book One London read of the year, I was super excited that I was able to snatch it up from the library. This book is important. It‘s a very important discussion about culture, traditions, and the atrocities of our past. A post-apocalyptic young adult read, it‘s chilling because it is so real.

A great #audiobook production of a smart, moving #YA novel about a post-apocalyptic world ravaged by climate change where Indigenous people are hunted for their bone marrow which gives others the crucial ability they have lost: to dream. Fascinating world-building! I felt like I was missing a few aspects of the plot and characters, though, and I'm not sure if this is because I spaced during the audio or if this is present in the writing itself.

Really excited to find both of these books by Indigenous authors available through my library as audiobooks today!

I LOVED the premise of this book so much that I'm giving it a "pick" even though the world building was unconvincing and the focus on teenage romance and bravado wasn't terribly interesting to me (it's YA though - so that makes sense). The underlying concepts are great in this book and I'm interested to see what the author does in the future!

I‘m a bit conflicted about what to rate this book on Goodreads and here. This book is full of pain and loss, but it is also full of hope. It explores parts of Canada‘s dark past, while also serving as a cautionary tale for the future. The ending left me in tears, yet as I sit and reflect on the book as a whole, I‘m left a bit underwhelmed? Considering this book has received a lot of praise, I think this is a case of “It‘s not you, it‘s me”.

I have a soft spot for dystopian fiction, and this is one of the best I have read recently. Beautifully written, enough adventure to keep you up past your bedtime, characters who you fall in love with. This should be taught in (especially Canadian) classrooms, both as an example of its genre and a way to give today's teens a different understanding of the traumatic residential schools of our far too recent past.

(Spoiler in comments!)

A wonderfully written dystopian set in my home province. After global warming ruins our country people become dreamless, with the exception of the Indigenous people of Canada. The non-Indigenous people want to dream again and they believe the bone marrow of the Indigenous folks holds the key.

This novel mixes glimpses into the past with a look into the future. It is moving and really makes you think about both the past and future.
