We discuss the difficulties in classifying this masterful book, the skill with which Jemisin portrays oppression, and the various relationships in the book.
We also referred to a couple of reviews, from Foz Meadows (reacting to Alabaster's identity as a gay man whose story ends tragically) and Christina Vasilevski (drawing parallels between The Fifth Season and the Black Lives Matter movement)
Jemisin wrote a post about using 2nd Person to narrate Essun's POV.
