To those who’ve survived: Breathe. That’s it. Once more. Good. You’re good. Even if you’re not, you’re alive. That is a victory.

(The epigraph to The Stone Sky by N.K. Jemisin, who is the 2016 Hugo Award winner for The Fifth Season, sequel is The Obelisk Gate; The Stone Sky is the third book, a book I just got today and immediately started reading.)

(Edited for an error in series titles.)

I really appreciated The Fifth Season and hope to get to The Obelisk Gate soon.

There are Jewish survivors of the Sho'ah who said much the same thing.........

I know nothing about the book, and next to nothing about the author... but the epigraph is dead on! (I endured, and survived, in quick succession, endometrial cancer, breast cancer, and the destruction of half my house and way too much of my stuff by Superstorm Sandy. I survived. I intend to keep on surviving... in fact, to mis-quote Heinlein, "I intend to live forever, or die trying.")

Well, Robinson is still alive (he's actually almost a year younger than I am), while Heinlein "only" lived to be 80. But the next time I'm near a bookstore and have any spare cash, I'll definitely look for The Fifth Season!

Mmm, I have it on-hold at the library. Not sure when I'll get it but I'll reread the first two in the trilogy first anyway.
