There doesn‘t seem to be a point to this story
I'm finally reading this novel. I will admit I have not been able to get my reading comfortability with Jemisin's books until I read her short story collection, How Long Til Black Future Month earlier in the year. That reading experience has lead me to her award winning Broken Earth Trilogy. After 50 pages....the world building is outstanding & her use of second person narration is an intriguing choice to tell a story. Full review to come.
I had never read this book or any others apart of the series, I only saw the movie when I was younger. Maybe that‘s why I don‘t have the nostalgia it might take to read and fully appreciate this as an adult.
I picked it because it seemed like a good winter read and it was. The story was enjoyable enough, though I didn‘t really like the heavy handed biblical allegory or how C.S.L addressed the audience so often.
Still, I‘m glad to have read it
