Brown Girl in the Ring, by Nalo Hopkinson

5.0

I read this book back when I was in school (many years ago it seems), back then it left an impression on my 17 year old self. It was a book I actually enjoyed getting as homework.

I decided to revisit it, and I'm glad I did, a lot of the characters and storyline were muddled up in time, and I feel that I got a fresh read out of this book again.

Having grown up in some of the areas that are in this book (and more importantly around the time this book was published) , it definitely brings me a bit closer to the story.

I don't think I can write a review good enough to do this book justice, it was an amazing read, a lot of the topics are difficult to get through but I give him so much credit for putting himself out there in such a way.

Took me a while to finish this one, I really enjoyed this and got trapped into the story. Really hard to put this one down.

As I got to the end of this book, I didn't want it to end, it had me captured in the tale.

This series is a wild ride which I got hooked into from the first book. Murderbot is a character you can really get under the skin of if you're as sarcastic as I am.

Highly recommend getting all four books up front, you'll be reading them all!

Bit of a quick read, but not going to complain. Personally I liked the storyline, the humour of the murderbot too.

I may or may not be (read : I am currently) throwing money at the other books right now.

It turns out I've been up all night finishing off this book, thank Murderbot it's still lockdown.

Was it worth pre-ordering? Yes. Did it blow my expectations? Totally.

Having the three narratives at one point took a tiny bit of adjustment, but for me it genuinely made the action come more to life. I've also noticed that things tend to be described just enough that you're able to set your own visuals along with the series.

I certainly hope there is another Murderbot novel in the works, as I've been sucked in deep to this series
