Rereading this one for a class really improved my opinion of it. Solid read.

I found this book not only incredibly interesting (such an unusual and creative base, and yet also so immediately immersive) but lovely and also painful.

Yetu's pain with her life and her people is telegraphed clearly, and it drew me in to her hopelessness, anger, and eventual grasp at escape - and yet the story also twines the reader into how Yetu is so badly torn even when she does escape the fate that has been killing her.

As I read more and got even further wound up in the story - both Yetu's and of all the wajinru, I truly desperately wanted a happy ending, but also dreaded where the ending would actually take me. I was, in the end, delighted with the perhaps-not-perfect but incredible resolution that managed to remove the torturous worst from Yetu as Historian . . . and to bring Oori with her, never to be left behind again.… (mais)

This story is a lot. A lot of jumping around, a lot of telling not showing, a lot of things happening that aren't explained.

I'm starting to space out while listening so I'm letting it go.

So this was a bit unusual read for me. First part really interested me, it was different. Second part still went on strong as we get things revealed, but then the last part was kinda eh. Maybe a bit too chaotic, too experimental? It certainly gave me some things to think about thought. 3,5
