I finished my first book from the #NewYearWhoDis list from @sebrittainclark and I really enjoyed it.

This is a very dark sci-fi set on a spaceship that has been fleeing the destroyed Earth for 300 years. Society onboard strongly resembles the antebellum south and slavery powers the ship. Not an easy read, but I loved the diverse characters and the writing is excellent. Thanks for a great rec, Sarah!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

saresmoore I loved this book! I agree it was a tough & dark read, but I appreciated how Solomon didn‘t pull any punches and didn‘t let any of their characters become clichés. 3w
sebrittainclark I'm so glad you liked it. I'm about to start The Starless Sea 3w
monalyisha I‘m glad I read your review before reading the book! It‘s been on my TBR for a *while* (largely because of the cover, I think 😳) but I don‘t think I realized how tough of a read it would be. Now I‘ll be more prepared! 3w

This is a powerful take on racism, class, gender and power and I loved how diverse it is, especially in terms of gender identity and sexual orientations. However, things felt a bit black-and-white to me when it comes to the “bad guys”, and the ending felt a bit rushed and unsatisfactory. I also had a hard time getting into the story, but that might be because I‘m not used to reading much SciFi.

I enjoyed this story, but I didn‘t love it like I wanted to for some reason. 🧐 something was...missing? I‘m going to be mulling this over for a bit, but Aster is a great character, and the story is engrossing.

#Booked2019 #Autumn #PersonOfColorMCParanormal

*The prompt is a busy one, right? Trying to cover PoC MC issues plus paranormal issues is already a lot. This book wants to stretch the circumambience even further to include mental illness, societal issues/differences (read politics), patriarchy, caste systems, and religion, all within an overarching tent of slave narrative and science fiction (again, a lot). Solomon does all of this aboard ⬇️

gradcat ⬆️ (Cont.) a generational ship in which all passengers are confined for at least a hundred years. I think part of my problem was in listening to the audiobook—I feel that this book might be better read than heard. There is a LOT packed into this book (also including gender issues, which I forgot to list). I have to say that I believe this is an important book. It‘s just that it tries to do so much that it runs the risk of not sticking the landing. 2mo

As many former #LMPBC group mates of mine know, it‘s a bit of a tradition for me to read #LMPBC books while sitting in dealerships getting oil changes and such. Here I am again!

I also fit in additional waiting room reading yesterday during my glorious visit to the social security office. I could not document it at the time because they take away your phone at the door at that building!

This is why you don‘t go anywhere without a book.

For over 300 years the HSS Matilda has been flying what remains of humanity to a fabled Promised Land. Life onboard the ship, however, is rather unpleasant, especially for those confined to the lower decks, those on the lowest rungs of society (which is organized much like antebellum society). A transition in power & discovery there might be a way off the ship complicates things tremendously. Lots of big issues addressed in this compelling book.

I really need to work through my TBR stacks so that‘s what I‘m going to do.

An Unkindness of Ghosts | Rivers Solomon

The ideas and World that Solomon has created here is very interesting. I just struggled with the language. The choppy sentences, the coldness if the characters (and their way of speaking). Unhelpful too was the way the story line often jumped and made me feel a bit lost.
But if you are looking for a hard sci fi book with a different take this is one to give a shot to.

kgriffith I can certainly understand your points! I listened to the audio and would like to revisit it sometime in print so I can pick up on some of the parts that were unclear to me the first time around. 3mo
ChaoticMissAdventures I understand that the main character is supposed to have Autistic characteristics? I wanted so much to like this but found it hard to get into the flow of it due to her choppy and unemotional character. I have a chemistry degree and even I found the science speak to be a bit much. But the whole idea and, since this is one of the few books to address in any way gender fluidity I cannot say it is not worth the time. 3mo

This was a very powerful read for me. It was not an easy read, Solomon presents a brutal situation. However nothing felt gratuitous to me. The characters were interesting and diverse. Despite the diversity, none of the primary characters felt like a stereotype. I also liked that despite all the darkness presented in the novel - the author does give the reader a glimmer of hope.

A dark sci-fi novel about a spaceship with a highly stratified racial social system that has devolved back into slavery. Solomon weaves an absolutely fascinating tale, and I loved the exploration of gender identity as well. Definitely not a light or happy read, but wonderfully crafted and well worth a read for sci-fi fans!

Unpopular opinion, but I had trouble with this one. The writing was fine, but the main plot was stretched out across the book in such a way that I lost interest. I also had difficulty envisioning the mechanics and layout of the ship, and being able to visualize things when reading SFF is hugely important, IMHO. I almost feel like this would‘ve worked better as a collection of short stories - vignettes of the various characters and their lives.

A dystopia featuring a spaceship that is supposedly on its way to a new planet. Darker-skinned people are housed on the lower levels and treated as less than human, while light-skinned people control the upper decks. TW for all kinds of trauma.

Aster is a healer who has learned to survive in the lower deck slums. She is queer, black, and neuro-diverse. A suspicious death leads her to clues her mother left that might lead to a way off the ship.

“Too much of my day is spent decoding euphemisms, then dealing with the aftermath when I decode them wrong.” This isn‘t the first quote that has me reading one of the main characters as autistic; I wonder if the author will address this as directly as they do another character‘s transness, or if it‘ll remain coded. I do think spec fic allows a bit more for coding, particularly when other identity words aren‘t used. #queerbooks

Such a good book, powerfully written with a memorable cast. It's a counterweight to the overly optimistic, and very white, perspective that others in the same genre often suffers from.

This reminds me of Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale in the psychological weight of the book. I felt so miserable for the characters and what they had to endure, and it felt like it would never end. But that discomfort, I think, is necessary to understand the story.

I'd describe this as American slavery in space. The beginning was great and I was instantly absorbed– loved the main characters, the diversity (which never felt forced), and the gradual world building without any info dumps. The ending was super disappointing though. It ended right when things were getting interesting and all that character and world building was wasted. Still, a good read despite the unbalanced plot.

This is the best space sci-fi I‘ve read in a long time. It‘s fascinating, smart, harrowing, & propulsive. The main character is non-binary & neurodiverse & relatable & awesome. As much as I hate to bring a deplorable bigot into this, I kept thinking while reading: Eat your heart out, Orson Scott Card! Solomon tackles tough issues (not just space science stuff, but real, big issues), but never detracts from the riveting & engrossing story. So good.

I‘m sad this immersive #audiobook, brilliantly performed by Cherise Boothe, is finished. It‘s a dystopian antebellum-type plantation setting on a starship that‘s been travelling for generations, with dark-skinned labourers under brutal guard in the lower decks and light-skinned people in charge. It‘s the #LGBTQ characters that I really fell for, especially Aster: Black, gender-variant, neuroatypical, healer & scientist. I hope a sequel is coming.
