N. K. Jemisin is a genius, but I think you already knew that

4 stars

The worldbuilding in this is so lush, and the voices so great. Sieh was obviously my favorite character (Because Sieh is the best) though it's not like there was any narrator I particularly disliked.

There were certain parts I could tell Jemisin just loved writing, I don't know how to put it. Like, the narration in the Shrill novella, while I bet it was difficult to write, I sort of felt like she had a good time?

While I think I would recommend starting Jemisin through her short stories instead of a 1700 monolith, you do you. This is great.
