A New York Times Notable Book of 2015
Shortlisted for the Hugo, Nebula, Kitschies, Audie and Locus Awards
The inaugural book club pick


IT STARTS WITH THE GREAT RED RIFT across the heart of the world's sole continent, spewing ash that blots out the sun.
IT STARTS WITH DEATH, with a murdered son and a missing daughter.
IT STARTS WITH BETRAYAL, and long dormant wounds rising up to fester.

This is the Stillness, a land long familiar with catastrophe, where the power of the earth is wielded as a weapon. And where there is no mercy.

5.0 van 5 sterren A new high point for Jemisin's already-impressive career. 5 augustus 2015
door S. Addison - Gepubliceerd op
I've enjoyed all of Jemisin's books thus far, but I often avoid starting series books until the whole series is complete because I hate being left hanging, waiting for the next installment. But "The Fifth Season" was totally worth the suspense. The world of The Stillness - an ironically-named super-continent that suffers frequent, massive environmental catastrophes thanks to its unstable geology - is a captivating setting for the story's three narrators, each of whom is forced to journey across the dangerous, shifting land. In conceiving a society able to do what it takes to survive across multiple devastating periods of disaster and climate change, Jemisin creates a world order that each of her main characters sees through different eyes: one hoping it will offer her refuge, one furious about its demands on her, and one hoping to just avoid its gaze altogether.

Even though I enjoy a good Tolkein-esque fantasy, it's so refreshing to read Jemisin's writing, which always takes a fresh departure from the pseudo-medevial-Europe settings so common in the genre. Rather than elves and orcs and plundering armies, Jemisin gives us orogenes (those gifted with the ability to control geological forces), stone-eaters (non-humans who can move through solid rock with their own, mysterious agenda), and a continent that is a greater threat to its people than any army. Whether the strict, caste-driven, xenophobic society that has evolved in response to the environment is a necessary evil or a regime to be overthrown is an argument that will likely span the entire trilogy.

"The Fifth Season" could be considered part of the vein of SF/F that addresses environmental and climate change issues (e.g. Nicola Griffith's "Slow River," Paolo Bacigalupe's "The Windup Girl") but in this trilogy, change is inevitable and largely beyond human control. The book builds toward several narrative twists slowly revealed in its final third; I had picked up on enough very subtle hints to suspect some of them, but they still came into focus with a satisfying emotional "click" that made me glad I waited and didn't stumble across any spoilers. I was so captivated by the narrative that I literally woke up in the night wanting to read more (thanks, insomnia! thanks, book light!). Waiting for the next two chapters leaves me feeling as unsettled as the world of The Stillness itself.

This is a brilliant book. I had a little problem getting into it, but that was because of my personal dislike of prologues and, when she segued into the first actual chapter, it was in second person, and I'm a little uncomfortable with that. But I was able to warm up to it. Many people cannot write second-person narratives well, but Jemisin can. (Although I was secretly pleased when the next chapter was not in second person.)

It's very clever the way she winds up the three story lines, all with distinct styles. I did guess the connection between the 3 women, but I don't think it was intended to be that big a secret - you should figure it out eventually.

The world-building is superior. Her orogenes are original, a nice invention in a field where wizards and mutants and others are so common. As others have mentioned, I was very intrigued by the character, Tonkee, and look forward to reading more of her in the other books.

5.0 van 5 sterren I'm hooked 23 november 2016
door Marnina - Gepubliceerd op
Geverifieerde aankoop
I'm find myself starting to prefer science fiction and fantasy stories with strong women characters, usually by women writers, and that do not involve predictable smarmy romances (a la Twighlight). This one has all that, some wonderful world-building and a compelling story to boot. The story does deal with love, but it examines relatedness between various kinds of people, and the weird, messy bonds that we all develop with children, mentors, friends and lovers over the course of a lifetime, but which never fit into the standard relational tropes typically described in fiction. It actually calls the Ancillary Justice series (Ann Leckie) to mind in this respect. Both novels, moreover, are excellent additions to literature informed by an anti-oppression ethos. Jemisin doesn't preach with her work, she unapologetically shows.

Anyway, I'm hooked, and find myself going off to bed earlier than usual so I can start reading a bit sooner. I want to draw out the second book in the series so I don't have to wait to long for the last instalment.

5.0 van 5 sterren World-building that still holds together when you shake it. 16 oktober 2015
door John - Gepubliceerd op
Geverifieerde aankoop
First off, coming into this from Dreamblood, for what that tells you. I thought Fifth Seasons was excellent; in general, I like the maturity of modern fantasy that addresses that perhaps your magical world and pleasantly subsistence level communities are not always something straight out of Walter Scott. Fifth Season has that in spades. I also like in how Jemisin puts more through into an apocalyptic scenario then the simple "all of those troubling social rules fall away, and then things will get epic!" As someone who also suspects that a society continuously prepped for the apocalypse would not be quite as self-actualizing as is often portrayed, this got it points.

And in general, the world building doesn't fall apart when you pause and think "wait a minute, what about..." That the mundanes controlling the magic users involves catching them as children and teaching them it's right and proper makes a heck of a lot more sense. That surviving regular blows would require a strictly regimented society makes sense. That it would become normal... makes sense. And that the group that is treated as second-class citizens would occasionally be mad as hell about it - that makes sense too.

And as usual, this is as tight and well paced as any of Jemisin's books. Even the second-person parts, which shocked me because I usually don't like second person. One word to the wise though - this books requires a certain maturity. If you are squiked out by characters not being hetero, or a lack of happy endings, this might not be the book for you. Also, if you a have a low tolerance for the unpleasantness of societies, and how some of the brutality in this fantasy world has some real-world parallels, this may not be the book for you.

5.0 van 5 sterren 2015 SF/F Favorite 6 februari 2016
door Amazon Customer - Gepubliceerd op

I think this is one of my new favorite books. It takes place in the same world as Jemisin's 2014 short story, “Stone Hunger,” a really compelling setting where frequent apocalyptic events have forced humans to operate in a perpetual wary state, with stores of grain and preparations for martial law always at the ready. Among the population, there are magic-workers who can manipulate stone. They are blamed for the apocalypses and persecuted.

One thing I really love about this story is the detailed layers of dead civilizations, where some were developed and technological and have left such ruins, while later ones operate on wildly different aesthetics and technological capabilies. The story is divided in three broad timelines/perspectives–one a young girl being enslaved to the empire because of her magic ability, one a magic worker laboring in service of the empire, and one a magic worker fleeing an apocalypse that has ruined her home town. The threads are brought together beautifully and intelligently in a way that makes it clear that each prior move has been deliberate. I see Jemisin as one of the most important novelists working in contemporary sf/f.
