Description

Winner of the 2016 Hugo Award for Best Novel
Book 1 in the double Hugo-Award-winning trilogy
A New York Times Notable Book
Shortlisted for the World Fantasy, Nebula, Kitschies, Audie and Locus Awards
The inaugural Wired.com book club pick

This is the way the world ends...for the last time. 

It starts with the great red rift across the heart of the world, 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.

The Broken Earth trilogy is complete - beginning with The Fifth Season, continuing in The Obelisk Gate (Winner of the 2017 Hugo Award for Best Novel) and concluding with The Stone Sky (Shortlisted for the 2018 Hugo Award for Best Novel).

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Breaks every mold I can think of

I bought this book after reading a review that was mostly complaining about how queer it is, as that's usually a sign that whatever's being reviewed is something I will enjoy greatly. This methkd has yet to fail me.

The Fifth Season is the kind of book you hear about second-hand, or in hypotheticals that leave you going "Wow, I want to read that book."

It plays with structure, tone, and style in ways I've never seen before. The flow and shape of the story shifts and splits and converges in ways that are always surprising, but never absurd or unreasonable.

The world is cool as hell. A fantasy story set in a post-apocalyptic sci-fi world, where sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.

It's dark at times, but never needlessly or excessively. The Fifth Season is honest about the ugly things, and about the beautiful things.

The narrator also does a tremendous job of narrating, enhancing and enhanced by the book itself having a narrator, which she brings to life excellently.

I am in love, and I am immediately moving to the next one.

I enjoyed Jemisin’s narrative style – which switch

I enjoyed Jemisin’s narrative style – which switches between second person and third person depending on the POV. It reminded me of Toni Morrison’s style in The Bluest Eye, which I’ve actually missed in the books I’ve read of late. Jemisin’s ability to weave story lines and arc in an engaging way is remarkable.It took a while for me to realize that the story is set in three eras. This made the geography confusing at times. I didn’t care much for the love triangle. The Fifth Season starts with the end of the world and then moves on to more interesting things. I thoroughly enjoyed the story, the Stillness and its people, and Jemisin’s writing. The Fifth season is definitely making my top ten list. The Prologue was also confusing at first. However, when I finished I re-read portions of it and it made more sense.

Excellent

Narrator was excellent at bringing the story to life and the story itself was gripping, entertaining and completely unlike anything I've read before. I can't wait to start Book 2.

Very interesting world

Good stuff all around.
Not sure what I feel about the fact that none of the main characters had a normal sexual orientation.
Mostly it just felt like the book desperately tried to be very current with all the fuss about genders and whatnot.
Anyway the book didn't put too much focus on it so I wasn't distracted by it.

THE FIFTH SEASON

the structure, the POV's, the characters, the world building, the way systemic oppression is interwoven into this fantasy narrative .... makes this book one you will either hate or fall madly in love with.

With this book I really needed to savour and digest everything that was revealed within those chapters about Damaya, Syenite and Essun ... to have my mind blown towards the end 😳

Since I've just finished the first installment, that sort of left my heart in ruin 😢 ... I've decided that I need some time to properly recuperate before I pick up the sequel. So far this was a truly magnificent reading experience.

Overrated

The writing is pretty uneven, the characters unengaging and the story lackluster. I don't understand how this book could win a Hugo.

Amazing novel

Amazing story, very well written. Fantastic world building and characterisation. Complex world and nuanced discussions of oppression. Jemisin deserves all the praise she's been getting and more. Reading voice is well chosen and easy to listen to.

Fesselnde Geschichte, Geniale Erzählerin

Ich muss mich hier einfach mal über Robin Miles auslassen.

Bei Hörbüchern erwarte ich zumindest kompetentes Vorlesen. Es hängt unter anderem von dem Stoff des Hörbuchs ab, aber Vorlesen können sollte jeder.

Frau Miles allerdings? Sie liest nicht vor, sie *erzählt* die Geschichte wie es ein Erzähler tut, mit Seufzern und Lauten, welche den Inhalt des Buches in eine Weise vermitteln, der ans Herz geht. Die abgewürgte Stimme der Hauptperson, wie sie von ihrem Leid erzählt, klingt durch den Text und bleibt an einem hängen. Das letzte Mal habe ich so eine fesselnde Erzählung von Rupert Degas gehört. Einfach wunderbar.

Und falls es nicht klar war: die Geschichte und Handlung des Buches ist ebenfalls erstklassig und hat zu recht ihren Hugo bekommen.

Great and unique worldbuilding - interesting story

Apart from the cliffhanger ending, there's not much to complain about. The world and its lore are rich and believable, the characters fleshed out and sympathetic and the narration brings it all to life beautifully.

what a waste of time

So i made it to almost the end of the book.
What a waste of time!
This whole story is no better than an instance of a fantasy computer game.
In fact i would have bet that it's based on a fantasy game if i wouldn't know better.
There are these different races living on earth just like the different races that you can choose from at the beginning of a game. And each has different abilities of course.
That's just so ordinary.
And then: A magician with ten rings has ten times more power than a magician with only one ring, being able to affect targets in much bigger of a distance and, oh how surprising that is.
Oh look, it's earth-magic, not just magic magic. How impressingly innovative.
Jemisin is actually not a bad writer, so i kept thinking, that this might in fact turn into something special.
Fail.
I will now do, what i usually do, when a book is a waste of time.
I will simply put it away, right before it ends.

Surprising, new, convincing fantasy setting

This is the story of three women, each one told in a different style. They live in a strange world where people have strange powers. It took me some time to get drawn in, but as I started to understand, I was fascinated. This is not only a fantasy story. This is also and maybe even more so a social fantasy and stands in line with f.i. the Strugatzkis' works. A strange and interesting read. The speaker does a good job, too. The book is read neither too fast nor too slow. The different personae are well distinguished. I recommend the book strongly.
