    Who Fears Death por Nnedi Okorafor (electronicmemory)
    electronicmemory: Who Fears Death is post-apocalyptic futuristic fantasy and The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms draws from classical sword and sorcery, but both are excellent novels about heroines who have found themselves beset and gifted (or possibly cursed) by powers beyond reckoning, while caught up in a political and supernatural power struggle that spans generations and eventually time itself.… (mais)

DNF at 14%

I think I'm going to place this in the "it's me not you" category. Sometimes being thrown right in the middle of things works for me, sometimes it doesn't. I'm more than willing to see where things go so long as I find the journey engaging. And by 14%, I expect to know something about the protag to make me care about their quest or fate or state of health. I know nothing about Yeine except she's an outsider. The gods/weapons/slaves seem to think she's something special, but I've seen nothing to give me that impression besides a random non-sensical kiss which is supposed to mean...something, I guess. Probably that she's going to fall in love with the alphahole who just terrorized her. Because every strong woman must have her alphahole. *yawn* There are also random jumps in the narrative that are probably supposed to ramp up tension but really just highlight that I know zero squat about anything.

There's no doubt this is well-written and that there's some sort of grand adventure that's going to go down. There's just not enough world-building, character-building or anything else-building at this point to draw me into this world and keep me reading. This is an extremely popular series though, so don't let my lack of connection dissuade you from checking it out for yourself.

An enthralling read. Jemisin builds an excellent and engrossing world, populated with characters who are eminently relatable and yet often utterly different. The scope and elegance of this fantasy world and the interesting narrative style makes this a must-read ( )

I originally read this the year it came out, and by the time the sequel came out I neither remembered enough to want to go on with book 2, nor had time to reread. So, now that I have possession of the whole trilogy, I'm starting from book 1 again.

This is as powerful a read as is was the first time, and knowing (at least vaguely) what was coming did not marr that in the least. Possibly, given how tense I remember feeling the first time, knowing roughly how bad it was going to get was a bonus.

Complex high fantasy without all the bits I usually hate about high fantasy, and with a large amount of serious consideration of the implications of some of the tropes woven in to the background of the story. ( )

Really nice ideas. Not mind blowing, but very satisfying to read.
Similar in tone to the Goblin Emperor which I really enjoyed too. ( )

I've been meaning to read Jemisin for a little while but haven't found her books at my local branch library. I was near another branch recently and found this whole series and was excited to finally read one of her books. I liked this one but didn't love it.

I haven't read fantasy broadly enough to know whether this one is truly original or not. I suspect that in some regards it is. But if so, its originality didn't wow me. I wasn't as intrigued by the cultures Jemisin begins to portray here as I was by some of the cultures Robert Jordan gives us, for example (though I've read about half of his series and thus thousands more pages about those cultures, so he's had a fairer shot to wow me so far). I didn't find the gods or the god/human relationships as interesting as I've found some of the stuff in Sanderson's Mistborn series.

The book generally held my attention (though it lagged here and there), but it didn't make me feel like I had to run right out and read the next in the series either. I've got the rest of the series on my nightstand, in fact, but I'm shifting back next to another Erdrich book, which I think is more likely to be satisfying (and I suspect that the next in this series will be a little disappointing).

This was a first book, and it's another series by Jemisin that has gotten a lot of recent attention. I may put aside this series for now and try the first in the other series to see if it does more for me. ( )

The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms definitely leaves me wanting more of this delightful new writer.
