    Without a doubt, one of the most brilliant books I have ever had the honor of reading A brilliant homage to New York City, packed with all its love and harshness, and so incredibly inventive that I felt my own imagination and the boundaries of what fantasy can be expand.

    A wonderfully inventive love letter to New York City that spans the multiverse A big middle finger to Lovercraft with a lot of heart, creativity, smarts and humor A timely and audacious allegorical tale for our times This book is all these things andThe story started a bit slow as our team assembles, but once our heroes are together or as together as they re gonna be , it was a blast sharp and insightful but also just fun There are definitely some creepy an...

    I want you to understand that you re not ready for this book Even if you ve read Jemisin s other work, even if you ve read The City Born Great, which is the starting place for this book.You re not ready for the fun and pop of it, the rhythm and beat You re not ready for the wit and weight of it, the subversions that are both subtext and said out loud You re not ready for the cleanness and cleverness of the prose, the daring of it, t...

    Tragically, not one thing about this novel is holding my attention You also have to be very open to social justice issues being jack hammered into the narrative, something that was never present in Jemisin s Broken Earth trilogy Her ability to show rather than tell disappeared som...

  8. Silvana says:

    Not quite as masterpiece like the Broken Earth trilogy It might also be the wokest novel I ever read It is even woker than The Future of Another Timeline since it does not only touch the gender issues, but also race and identities Considering the political climate nowadays in the US, readers will have no problem to immerse themselves inside the world Speaking of the world building, at first I wish I had been to New York ...

    I sing the city When I first read The Fifth Season, it was like taking a cold shower almost like waking up, since I had no idea that you could actually write like that But N.K Jemisin doesn t play by the rules instead she creates her own, stomping all over both genres and everything binary to create something amazing that is purely hers. I love it, and I love her That s why it broke my heart when I didn t find myself in love with The City We Became.All remarkable cities have souls, andI sing the city When I first read The Fifth Season, it was like taking a cold shower almost like waking up, since I had no idea that you could actually write like that But N.K Jemisin doesn t play by the rules instead she creates her own, stomping all over both genres and everything binary to create something amazing that is purely hers.
