The Fifth Season (The Broken Earth, #1)The Fifth Season by N.K. Jemisin

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

I can’t tell you much about this book, because I couldn’t read it. I almost never quit a book, but by the end of the prologue, I’d cultivated a pretty strong dislike for the author and didn’t care about where the story was heading or the character at all. I do not appreciate her style of writing. I quit with the impression the author is completely convinced of her own superior abilities, and instead of telling a story with some kind of emotion that might actually be great, she was using her book as a forum to prove how great she is, which of course might not be the case at all, but that’s certainly how it made me feel.
