    Reading each volume of The Broken Earth trilogy by N. K. Jemisin left me electrified. The first two books, The Fifth Season and The Obelisk Gate, won the past two annual Hugo awards for best novel—a rare occurrence. Her final book in the series, The Stone Sky, is up for the 2018 Hugo. Here’s why I think this science-fiction/epic fantasy trilogy is so important, and why I’m rooting for it to win. (It’s largely spoiler-free.)

Here’s why I think this science-fiction/epic fantasy trilogy is so important, and why I’m rooting for it to win. (It’s largely spoiler-free.) The Broken Earth gives us a vastly-scaled vision of global environmental catastrophe. With Essun, the main character, we enter a world that long ago suffered a planet-wide injury, which has locked the earth into unending cycles of convulsion. Periods of relative stillness are punctuated by Fifth Seasons, with earthquakes, eruptions, and toxic fallout that threaten humankind’s survival. The people of Essun’s time call their planet “Father Earth.” This name jolted me whenever I read it, challenging my ingrained understanding of our planet as Mother Earth, Gaia, the Greek Demeter, etc. But rather than seen as nurturing, this Father Earth is viewed as angry, unpredictable, and punishing, like an Old Testament Yahweh.

    Though I read each book individually, I will leave my review here, as an overall impression of the series. First I have to say, I am very glad that I did not read any reviews of this series before reading... though it seems hypocritical since I’m now leaving a review myself. But if I had, I would have had advance warning of its grimness and likely would not have picked it up. I tend not to go for stories that are overly dark.

First I have to say, I am very glad that I did not read any reviews of this series before reading... though it seems hypocritical since I’m now leaving a review myself. But if I had, I would have had advance warning of its grimness and likely would not have picked it up. I tend not to go for stories that are overly dark. And yes, this series is dark and grim and full of suffering, but there are tiny strands of hope amongst the hopelessness. The gravity of the book never ventures into overt melodrama either, possibly thanks to its relatively casual narrative voice. Rather, it is grounded in reality and is in fact hugely relevant to many real life current events (global climate change and institutionalized racism, just to name a few). I will say that the beginning of the first book was a bit of a challenge for me. It throws so much world-building at you and then tells you most of it’s not relevant to the actual story—though in some cases that proves to be untrue. I found myself having to rely on the appendices just to begin to wrap my head around it. Part of my confusion may have been my uncertainty of whether this series was fantasy or science fiction. Many of the fantastical elements are given pseudoscientific explanations, and the books are riddled with unfamiliar geological terms. In the end, however, once all the strangeness and world-building clicked into place, there was no denying the absolutely masterful writing. I couldn’t help but try to predict where the story would go. When I was wrong, I was intrigued by the creativity; when I was right, I felt satisfied at having correctly pieced together the clues, rather than disappointed by predictability. The characters are all hugely complex and felt very much real for it. And the intricacy of all the plot lines is mind-boggling. Nonlinear narratives are tough to handle, but the way Jemisin connects the timing of events that happened with many years (sometimes literal thousands) between them gives the books a pacing that feels natural, instead of jarring. I’m very glad that I defied my darkness-avoiding instincts and read these books. I have a feeling they are going to stick with me for a very long time and, if there is any justice in this world at all, become cornerstones of the SFF genre.

    My spouse and I read these allowed to each other over the course of many months. They are so great! I love that the author was always tripping me up over my own gender biases. A character would be described and then at some point their gender would be mentioned and I would realize I have gender them in correctly based on descriptors. I love being confronted with my own hangups in that way. But that is a minor part of the Ruben.

    Loved these books so much I reviewed each on my blog here: https://pylesofbooks.wordpress.com/20... https://pylesofbooks.wordpress.com/20... https://pylesofbooks.wordpress.com/?s... From my review on THE STONE SKY: "Jemisin did a fantastic job on all fronts with weaving all the pieces and parts to bring together the plot and themes for a great ending. Truly, a landmark series and not one to miss."

    Probably you've read this. If not, you should. Easy five stars. (I read the books individually, but since I have nothing else to say about the series other than "yes definitely five stars", I'll just review the box set.) Update: This book is grim, so if you can't handle grim, it's not for you. It's sad, lots of people who don't deserve it die in horrible ways, there is violence, there is cannibalism, there is ecological and personal disaster. It's still great, but it's grim.

    Very very nice fantasy trilogy. Amazing story and that imagination of the writer! Wow! I gotta say... the writer does make a great point with this story. It has projection to our real world and we should think about the consequences of our actions. Really really well put.

    Gave the series four stars because overall the books were good enough to keep me reading through to the end. Interesting world full of tragic characters.

    After many months, I finished this trilogy. Fantastic world building and creative situations. Lots of dialog made it slow intense reading/listening.

    Read back-to-back-to-back while on vacation. The first of the series was very good and a worthy Hugo winner, but I'm not so sure about the next two. In any event, original and better than most.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. All that world building, character backstories, social history and all, all that to end the book with a mother’s dramatic sacrifice to save her bitter, stubborn and silly daughter. 🤦♀ There are good ideas in the book but so many missing explanations make them easy to ignore. In the end, the story does not make any sense.
