A lot was said in the novel about the power of words and of stories. In a lot of ways, this is how I approach spirituality myself, without the sense that it is literally true as it is in this novel of magical realism.
This story has a lot to say about telling stories about women with agency, about indigenous people with agency. And it seems to say that telling this story makes it more true and more real in the world of those of us who read it.
I've got to compare this approach to that of our slow read (even though I'm way behind on my reading for that). I find a lot when I scratch beneath the surface of Jemisin's The Broken Earth, but it is hard work. I didn't find a lot beneath the surface of this book, but Moreno-Garcia tied most everything together explicitly. I found the story satisfying, the world that was built, and ultimately the story that was told.
What is your sense of this? Did you like the story? The myths that were pulled together to make this world?
