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.
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.

This is an odd book. The author does a great job of world building and populates it with some compelling characters but managed to have them do very little other than wander around aimlessly. There's an occasional reveal, which all feel fairly arbitrary, and some slightly strange narrative choices which don't really work.
That said, it's certainly original and the narration is excellent.

Struggled to get into this one. For me, the narration by Robin Miles was quite stilted. The muddied accents she put on for some of the characters were very strange. The sci-fi aspects of the story were very compelling though.

Loved this book, so unique with a stunning storyline. Jemisin is such a great writer, the Hugo Award was well deserved. One of the best books I have listened to. Narration excellent.

I found narrator's voice unclear sometimes and needed to replay sections. Book was excellent though.
