I was expecting more science fiction, but found it to be more a historical fiction account of the antebellum south. Aside from the time travelling that is. An engaging story regardless.

mandi1082 I picked this up years ago not knowing anything about it and I loved it. 10mo
Kasie I read this years ago in a science fiction class and loved it. It does a great job at almost hiding the science fiction side of it. The perspective on the subject is great. 10mo
Leftcoastzen Need to read this! 10mo

I really wanted to like this but I could not. I've read other Okorafor books and liked them, but I could not get into this one. I nearly bailed and I never bail. It's clearly a social commentary on Nigerian culture, but that combined with the science fiction elements just all seemed forced. And boring. 🤷‍♀️

It wasn't bad, but I wasn't riveted. I do think it would make a good book club pick though. It touches on a number of "hot topics" that I think would make for some good discussions.

This novel tells one family's story over 12 days leading up to, during, and the day after Hurricane Katrina. Such amazingly vivid storytelling, especially during the hurricane.

Shley9225 Is this good? I felt like it was going to be just like every other YA Medical Contemporary so I passed on it :/ 10mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego @Shley9225 It is your typical YA love story. Which I enjoy. But there is a plot twist, and I was surprised by it. It's a quick read, so even if you don't love it, you won't of invested to much time in it. 😊 10mo
Shley9225 @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego *immediately requests it from library* 10mo
Chelleo Yeah, I enjoyed this a lot! 10mo

#DogsOfLitsy #Femmeuary Whiskey sacked out but I finished this very good mystery set in 1920‘s Bombay with an excellent protagonist Purveen Mistry the only female solicitor in Bombay. The main story line involves 3 widows who were married to a man who has died. The women had lived in purdah, cut off from the world behind screens, contact only with children, other women and their husband. Purveen is the perfect solicitor for the situation.
