Reviewed in the United States on April 11, 2020
I love NKs other books but this was a bit of a struggle to read.
Massive 'over the top' focus on cultural, racial and gender diversity aspect of the story. It does not resonate and becomes boring / overpowering for big sections of the book. Perhaps this is a relflection of cultural new york / US tensions but i've lived in many countries around the world and generally people just dont dwell in this very much compared to the US. In general a potentially great story watered down to just being OK..
I will buy the next books in the series and hope for a bit more focus on the story and less on characterization... quite enough of that already thanks Ms Jemisen :)
