3.5. Brown Girl in the Ring is a classic work of urban fantasy, or perhaps mythic horror, and I'm glad I read it. Hopkinson writes with grace and control, and her evocation of a near-future dystopian Toronto where Afro-Caribbean magic has turned a family dispute into a battle of epic proportions is fascinating and richly textured.

This novel is the best (perhaps only good?) SF portrayal of traditional Caribbean religion that I've read. While the antagonist's black magic is gruesome, the spirits themselves are the most memorable characters of the book, benevolent and full of personality. It's a welcome change from urban fantasies that feature spooooky Voodoo practitioners. The near-future setting is also memorable, and I'm a bit disappointed that there isn't a followup series where Ti-Jeanne and her neighbors solve magical crimes in inner-city Toronto.

I did think the characterization could have been stronger, or the storytelling better suited to such archetypal characters. I liked a lot about Ti-Jeanne's character, but the prose style created a distancing effect and I didn't feel fully invested in her fate. I suspect Hopkinson was trying to find a compromise between contemporary prose and her book's folktale antecedents, and for me she didn't hit quite the right note.

Big issue

With a lot of stories. For that, it's well worth the price, even though I didn't find any of the stories to be the sort that I like.

Intensely personal, rich in nuance. Women finding their places in the world.
Queer women. Cruelty to women. Slavery. Read it anyway.
