Spinning Silver
Spinning Silver | Naomi Novik
A fresh and imaginative retelling of the Rumpelstiltskin fairytale from the bestselling author of Uprooted, called "very enjoyable fantasy with the air of a modern classic" by The New York Times Book Review. Miryem is the daughter and granddaughter of moneylenders... but her father isn't a very good one. Free to lend and reluctant to collect, he has loaned out most of his wife's dowry and left the family on the edge of poverty--until Miryem steps in. Hardening her heart against her fellow villagers' pleas, she sets out to collect what is owed--and finds herself more than up to the task. When her grandfather loans her a pouch of silver pennies, she brings it back full of gold. But having the reputation of being able to change silver to gold can be more trouble than it's worth--especially when her fate becomes tangled with the cold creatures that haunt the wood, and whose king has learned of her reputation and wants to exploit it for reasons Miryem cannot understand. Naomi Novik once again creates a wonderfully rich, multilayered fantasty world that readers will want to return to again and again.

I‘m a little bit miffed this book was so long and yet one of the main storylines felt unfinished. However, I was also very impressed. It‘s a retelling of Rumpelstiltskin from multiple, well developed perspectives. It also critiques the antisemitism behind the original fairytale, while also sprinkling original details into her own plot. I‘ll definitely be reading more of Novik‘s work.

This one is a pick with some issues. It was slow until halfway in and repetitive in parts. I felt it was too drawn out (too much filler in spots). The cold and despair was almost TOO relentless. But I loved the strong heroines who took matters into their own hands. For me, the men/monsters were not satisfactorily redeemed for their heroines with an ending that seemed rushed in comparison to the rest of the book. I enjoyed Uprooted more. This ⬇️

robinb was just an OK for me. 3.75/5⭐️ This was my October #BookSpin. @TheAromaofBooks (edited) 3mo
TheAromaofBooks It's like you read my mind on this one! I felt the exact same way both about the unrelenting drudgery and despair AND the romantic conclusions. I would have really liked the beginning half to be a lot shorter and to get more scenes with the women actually communicating with the men - especially the one who is in the ice kingdom, like we get NO relationship development there when there is so much to explore! There was a lot I liked here, but I ⬇ 3mo

I kinda loved it! Some parts were a little drawn out, and I have a minor gripe with part of the ending that I‘d willingly debate with other lovers of the book. I really enjoyed the characters. I‘m also a sucker for Russian mythology and some of the other themes and aesthetics the author chose. A very solid 4.5 ⭐️ #FairyTaleReadingChallenge @Charityann

I liked it. It is definitely a pick, but I am aggravated with some aspects.

I enjoyed the two monsters being beaten by young, stubborn, plain women with their wit. I liked the Russian customs. I want to sleep on a bed above a stove.

I didn't like how the Staryk king argued. It was as if it was in code and I couldn't extract the meaning. And where was Mirnatius's and Irina's happy ending? Just a look of adoration. Tsk. Tsk. Tsk.

This retelling of Rumplestiltskin seemed quite long as I listened to it, but I felt as though someone was weaving a fairytale story as I sat nearby. I loved the voices. There were 3 stories woven together so well that there was only one place where I said, “Ooh! I know what going to happen with that!” I really, really liked this story. A classic. #100YEARS100BOOKS #54 #BookSpinBingo #8 #BFC21 #BOOKED2021 #FAIRYTALECHALLENGE #YApril #AwesomeApril

#BookSpinBingo @TheAromaofBooks #fairytalereadingchallenge @Charityann

This was very close to being a pick, but there were too many sections that felt unnecessary to the story. I enjoyed the characters and how at first they had no connection, but then Novik weaves them together in an adventurous way. Parts of this reminded me of The Girl in the Tower too.

Overall, it was enjoyable, but not as amazing as I thought it would be when I started.

TheAromaofBooks I struggled a little with this one. It felt like the misery throughout the majority of the book was pretty unrelenting. 10mo

Strong female characters, who get stronger, in a fantastical world complete with monsters. The reader on my audiobook version had a slight Russian accent which was fun. The demon‘s voice was a little much. Overall, I found it a bit predictable but descriptive and atmospheric.

The winding paths are confusing at first, though each character was interesting on its own. But soon each character's voice is more firmly established. I particularly appreciated how the underlying stories are those of 3 young women - Miryem, Irina, & Wanda - taking charge of their future & finding safety for the people they care about. The story does drag occasionally & I didn't enjoy all the different perspectives, but it was an engaging tale.

I really loved this very different take on the story of Rumpelstiltskin. Novik's character development is excellent & she's done a wonderful job of giving the characters interesting back stories that eventually & seamlessly cross paths.
I loved the story of the Staryk & the tension & expectation woven in

This is a story that I loved & would read again

After our dangerous encounter with The Black Rider we continue on our journey. Our mood is greatly improved when our paths cross with the magical and mystical elves.

These elves are much friendlier than the elves I've been reading of in Spinning Silver, for which I am grateful.

There are a lot of things to love about this one - wonderful descriptions, strong characters, & writing that genuinely made me feel cold. This was my second time reading it, but I still found myself low-key frustrated by the relentlessly depressing set up for literally every character, the way the two main characters make huge decisions without actually knowing the whole story of what is going on, & the fact that the narrative is divided ⬇️

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) between SO MANY VOICES (at least half a dozen) that all start to sound very same-y. In the end, I'm left with a similar review to the first time I read it back in 2018 - a really beautiful story with a lot going for it, and one that I do recommend, but it just somehow isn't exactly a book that I can love.

TheAromaofBooks @Chrissyreadit - This is definitely an easy 4* pick for me, but I think on the whole I'm an up reader, and this is kind of a down book, despite the happy endings. But it's SO atmospheric!! 11mo
Chrissyreadit That‘s so funny! We do have a similar taste I think. I can read most books- as long as they have a HEA although- even there I do not like books with un likable characters. Did you do #newyearwhodis if you did I would love to see your list! 11mo
TheAromaofBooks @Chrissyreadit - I emailed it to you!! 11mo
ravenlee I feel kind of the same about this one, and Uprooted too. I liked them, I‘m glad I read them, I‘m even more glad I got them from the library because I probably won‘t revisit them. 11mo
booksellerofyourdiscontent @ravenlee, I agree. I feel like Novik is really solid, but she either needs more space to write or perhaps someone to edit out unnecessary storylines? I don‘t know. I am reading a Deadly Education and it feels much more concise. Her character and world creation can be quite wonderful! 11mo
TheAromaofBooks @ravenlee @booksellerofyourdiscontent - I will say that I liked Uprooted better than Spinning Silver, but I think that's partially because it felt a little more focused (only one narrator) & was overall a more upbeat vibe. I really liked Deadly Education as well - I haven't read her dragon series yet, though. Spinning Silver also felt a little clunky at times because it was fantasy - but Novik was making points about anti-Semitism throughout ⬇ 11mo
TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) & while I didn't disagree with what she was saying, at times that message felt a little polemic instead of organic to the story. 11mo
booksellerofyourdiscontent @TheAromaofBooks good to know! I heard it doesn‘t go with Uprooted, but rather exists in the same world? 11mo
ravenlee I agree that Uprooted was more streamlined. Both good, but I liked Uprooted more. I have the first of the dragon series but have yet to start it. So little time, and all that. 11mo
TheAromaofBooks @booksellerofyourdiscontent - I honestly don't get the impression that they are in the same world per se... Uprooted just seems to be set in some random fantasy world out there, but Spinning Silver has a very Russian-y vibe & because the one MC is Jewish, it makes the whole story feel more grounded in our world (except with magic) rather than in its own place, if that makes sense haha 11mo

Well, that was fun & fantastical. And a very seasonally-appropriate winter read. I felt such fondness for the trio of strong young women at the book‘s center, and loved the magical aspects, but also was impressed by how well it brought in larger social and philosophical themes. I was a fan of Uprooted, and maybe liked this one even more.

Today's #SleightheShelves prompt reminded me of this book I've been wanting to read, so I went ahead and put a library hold on it! My attitude toward my TBR is pretty cavalier this month! 😂

Day 2 - #Silver #SleighTheShelves
#SpinningSilver #NaomiNovik

Spinning Silver draws readers deeper into a realm of fantasy. A re-telling of Rumpelstiltskin but so much more! Miryem, Irina & Wanda embark on a desperate quest that will take them to the limits of sacrifice, power, & love. Novik weaves a multilayered, magical tapestry that readers will want to return to again and again. There are 6 POV but the 3 strongest are Miryem, Irina & Wanda.
