I liked the final book the best and it‘s a work of genius in my opinion. Nobody can accuse this author of any kind of plagiarism that‘s for sure. It‘s a book of such depth that I think it‘s going to be studied for some time.

Out of my comfort zone but worth it! Visualizing this world was an exercise for my imagination 🌋 Understanding the themes explored in this series, however, was not. The landscape may be different, but the story is one we know too well. What it means to be human and the very intentional function of dehumanization. Our responsibilities to each other and to society. The impact of our choices. Our reckoning. I come back to this book often💭

Took a little bit to post my #BookSpinBingo card because through some sheer luck both #BookSpin and #DoubleSpin were books I started a while back, with only a few chapters left each and wanted to get them done and marked. It's probably the only time ever when I will finish both in a month 😁 Stone Sky - great conclusion to The Broken Earth trilogy (#Roll100 February pick) and The Beekeeper's Apprentice. Both picks!

Conclusion to the trilogy. It was pretty good, I still feel the first book is the strongest entry but the rest of the series is enjoyable and made me think about a lot of things. This book has cool unique imagery that I‘m still thinking about.

Finished several books recently, including the tagged. Well…the ending wasn‘t quite what I expected, but upon reflection not sure how else it could‘ve concluded. This trilogy had great world building and interesting characters. Curious how they‘ll adapt it to the screen.

SamAnne It‘s being turned into a movie??!!!! 1y
SamAnne @SW-T thanks for the share! Better get busy and finish the trilogy and tackle the Inheritance Trilogy. It‘s great Jemisin the one doing the adapatation. 1y

The pacing on this one felt really off. The world building here was still incredible but I feel like a huge storyline was just shoved in book 3 and then…left. Tuners to orogones to stones eaters? It was a little much and a lot didn‘t get explained but I still enjoyed the ride. The last couple of chapters felt incredibly rushed.

This book, and the trilogy as a whole, was stunning. The world & characters she created were so complex, and the story itself was incredible.
Many times during the first two books we had glimpses of Jemisin speaking to us about our world through her fantasy story. But here in book 3, the allegory was the starkest & most obvious it‘s been, and it was powerful.
Highly recommend everyone to read this.

Be prepared to have your emotions go through a grinder. N. K. Jemisin is a master at building up conflict and keeping readers engaged. Not only do the characters drive this story forward, but so do the cleverly placed bits of history. I have never been so invested in learning about the history of a fantasy world. #darkfantasy

Oh! This book! This series! My heart! I will be (and have been) recommending this trilogy to everyone I meet forever. This ending was gorgeous, and came so incredibly full circle. It was Satisfying in the way only perfect books are. I'm not only going to reread these, I'm going to be first in line for the fancy anniversary box set when it comes out someday. This is a level of book love I rarely achieve.

For as thorough as the world building was from the start of the series I was very surprised at the amount of new concepts, science and perspectives explored in the 3rd installment.

A satisfying ending.

Picture and headline because it could be the Rifting kicking off. Everything changes in a Season.

Mehso-so

Wow I am having trouble rating & reviewing this book! Overall a story that completely pulled me in & kept me reading despite the things that annoyed me BUT while the ending was mostly satisfactory, this entire book hinges on the reader believing in the motivation of one of the main characters - and I just couldn't accept that a 10-year-old would be this intense about a father-figure she has only known for a year. Everything she does/suffers is ⬇️

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) based on this motivation & it wasn't believable to me. The other MC, who has been the main character throughout the trilogy, was never particularly likable to me. I know that much of her personality & character was because of the abuse & trauma that she's suffered (because believe me, we get to hear about it AT LENGTH) but - just because she has reasons for being the way she is doesn't mean that she's a likable person. In this world ⬇ 2y
TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) there are people who can work magic (orogenes) & people who can't (stills) & the stills have enslaved & abused the orogenes for generations. The MC rails against stills who treat all orogenes the same (“the crime of one orogene must be the fault of all“) yet consistently treats stills the same way - she wipes out multiple VILLAGES of people she doesn't even know because, basically, the crimes of one still must be the crime of all. ⬇ 2y
TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) In the end, this was a solid trilogy with amazing world-building & a great story, but it was relentlessly depressing, had characters who weren't particularly likable & whose motivations didn't always seem realistic to me, & oh, the second person narration was literally driving me UP THE WALL. 3/5 for the series as a whole. It wasn't for me, but I can see why many people love it.

I'm SO in love with this idea because obviously I need more complicated layers to my reading 😂 @Clowjick is leaving this challenge with pretty loosey-goosey rules (woot!) so I'm shuffling the deck first, then writing prompts on the cards, then putting them back in order. Flip over the first card & whenever I read a book that matches that prompt, I can flip over the next - I'll see how far I can get through the deck this year!! #TBRDeckofCards

On the 4th day of Christmas, my choice for #12Booksof2020 is the final book in Jemisin‘s The Broken Earth series. I read and loved the first book in 2019 and finally got my hands of the other two this year.

This is truly great sci-fi, with gorgeous writing and epic world building.

I'm almost disappointed in this one, only because so much of the world building was saved for the end of the trilogy. It makes sense overall story wise, to keep tension up and allow the rest of the story but this was SO GOOD. Glad I chose this trilogy, to read this year.

Book 125, Audio

This wrapped up the tale nicely. I loved how it all came together, Jemisin has such a grasp on Humanity's short falls and can present them in a way that is blunt and stark, but also tinged with hope that we can do better.

It was a little hard to follow via Audio, it jumps between characters and viewpoints. I've bought the trilogy in paperback. I'll wait a while, but I'm already looking forward to reading it again.

So, I just spent my book-budget for the next four months on a new sewing machine. My grandmother's machine, which I've been using for the past ten years, has been giving me lots of trouble. I had to hand stitch part of this pullover for my kid.

But, I had excellent #audiobook entertainment. Finished the second book in the Broken Earth series and started the third.

I don‘t know what to say about this series that hasn‘t already been said a thousand times. Over these 3 books, I completely fell in love with N K Jemisin. Between the phenomenal storytelling and her intricately detailed and immersive world building, I didn‘t want these stories to end. I really enjoyed watching the characters develop and grow over the series as well, and I wasn‘t ready to say goodbye to them once the story wrapped up.

But there are none so frightened, or so strange in their fear, as conquerors. They conjure phantoms endlessly, terrified that their victims will someday do back what was done to them—even if, in truth, their victims couldn‘t care less about such pettiness and have moved on. Conquerors live in dread of the day when they are shown to be, not superior, but simply lucky.

Reading this series was like watching The Matrix for the very first time, it just blew my mind. I have never read anything like this,nor I think will ever read one.Also it argues how dependent we are on Earths resources which the writer rightly calls magic & how we are destroying it and in turn humanity itself.Its such an intelligent book.
This is now at the top of my favorite fantasy books sits right up with GOT and Lord of the rings

As I got closer to the end of this third book of the Broken Earth trilogy, I started to be sad to see it end. Jemisin is an incredible writer and the world she has created in this series is so intricate and finely crafted that I just got lost in it. This book couldn‘t possibly have ended more perfectly.

If you like sci-fi fantasy dystopian, and you appreciate stellar storytelling, this series might be for you.
