Wow. This story/book is very hard to describe - it must be lived, relished, savored, endured and believed. Beautiful and harsh imagery, moving tale, "real" heroes. ♥️♥️♥️

There were aspects of this book I really enjoyed, but it definitely drags in the middle quite a bit. There are several hundred pages where the characters are basically just doing the same things over and over. I get that this mirrors their emotional conditions (both main characters are "stuck" emotionally in the same way they are stuck physically) but it makes for very tedious reading material.

In this dual timeline plot, present-day Cinnamon deals with teenaged life after the death of her beloved brother Sekou. She reads a book given to her by Sekou, which is a memoir following the life of an alien and his/her Dahomean warrior lover as they escape wartorn Dahomey Kingdom.

I really wanted to love this book. There was so much to love. The writing was lyrical – full of beautiful imagery. The plot was intriguing. But I guess I didn’t feel connected to any of the characters. I suspect it’s not the fault of the book so much as the fact that I (a white, generation X woman who is easily mistaken as a “Karen” on Facebook) am not the target audience.… (mais)
