The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms

I remember so little about The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms by N. K. Jemisin that I probably shouldn’t be posting about it at all.  It’s not that I listened to the book all that long ago, it’s that the book held so little of my interest that very little of it actually sank in.  The main character seems nice, and the lesser gods (bound into servitude to the royalty) are mildly interesting when they do things, rather than provide exposition.  The truth is that this book is so full of unimportant material that I can’t remember much of anything actually happening except at the very beginning and the very end.  Very little else in this book seems to have stuck with me.  For that reason, I can’t recommend it.

I’m sorry for that.  Hopefully, my next posts will be more useful.  Coming up: at least the first book in the Deed of Paksenarrion series, and The Way Of Kings.
