My Book Review of Emergency Skin (Forward collection)

Emergency SkinEmergency Skin by N.K. Jemisin
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Amazing View of Humanity

Yes! Yes! Yes! Can we make this a reality? LOL

I don’t want to give any spoilers, yet all I want is to chat about this story with other readers. It’s profound, intense, surprising… amazing!

What I loved was Earth and who/what we had the potential to be. The author’s comments about borders and resources was accurate and truthful. Her assessment of what’s polluting our world poignant because it’s true.

What I disliked had to do with the Founders and their flawed mentality – so reminiscent of Nazis and ideas of a superior Aryan race. It’s so disturbing and, truly, a horror.

I recommend this short story to everyone. It has an important message contained in the engaging and captivating tale. Readers who love sci-fi to those studying sociology will find it fascinating. It’s so good!!
