    This book has a central issue to it without which it really can t be meaningfully discussed It is a spoiler to something that doesn t start until about 40% in the book, and frankly, had I known that this was the subject of the book I never would have picked it up I m kind of glad I did though.I would recommend you skip the remainder of this review if you don t want to read the spoiler, because I m going to proceed as if you re aware of it Sorry, I don t want to put the whole review under spoi This book has a central issue to it without which it really can t be meaningfully discussed It is a spoiler to something that doesn t start until about 40% in the book, and frankl...

    A magical story telling style, musically told, with a plot that weaves its way through some horrific landscapes in the most uplifting way A science fiction rumination on the power of myths, on the nature of humanity, but oh such a damn fine story

    I m not sure it s fair to mark this as abandoned when I only read a few pages in the first place Normally I wouldn t even consider that begun But I thought I should at least mention why I quit so early It s all because of the dialect in combination with the world building It usually takes some concentration to comprehend a new world, but when that world is introduced in a dialect that you can barely understand it s rough The first few pages were such hard work for me to decipher and I m not sure it s fair to mark this as abandoned when I only read a few pages in the first place Normally I wouldn t even consider that begun But I thought I should at least mention why I quit so early It s all because of the dialect in combination with the world building It usually takes some concentration to comprehend a new world, but when that world is introduced in a dialect that you can barely understand it s rough The first few pag...

    An excellent example of science fiction not centered on or featuring any examples of a Europe descended culture, but rather on a planet colonized by people of the Caribbean The whole thing is written in patwah, too, which does a great job of immersing the reader in Hopkinson s world.Planets plural, rather, because the central conceit of this novel is some sort of mumbo jumbo about criminals from the technologically advanced world of Toussaint being banished to its alternate dimension analogue An excellent example of science fiction not centered on or featuring any examples of a Europe descended culture, but rather on a planet colonized by people of the Caribbean The whole thing is written in patwah, too, which does a great job of immersing the reader in Hopkinson s world.Planets plural, rather, becau...

    It would take a favourite writer like Nalo Hopkinson to get me to read and actually enjoy science fiction There is a first time for everything It helps when the planet resembles Jamaica and everyone there speaks in creole
