Amazing book, especially if you like magical realism and linguistics. Anti-colonialist in a historically realistic way. This was the best book I've read this year. It made me really think about my own simultaneous oppressions and privileges, and how violence is necessary for anti-colonialist, anti-capitalist revolution.

Loved these characters, and couldn't put the book down. Lots to think about, and a fascinating way to explore colonialism and exploitation through a framing device of historical fantasy, and also a fascinating deep dive into the power of language. The last third broke my heart a bit, but I'm glad I read it.
