The City Born Great

The City Born Great

This quick read was an interesting dip into Jemisin's idea of a city' birth and personality. How cities live, just like other organisms in the world. Probably because of its brevity (22 pages/45 minutes), the story relies heavily on certain tropes (unaware chosen one, wise mentor, etc.) to advance things.

The audiobook narration by Landon Woodson is well-paced, engaging, and a delight to listen to.

An interesting dip into ideas about the lives of cities, if a very familiar path to follow for a short while.
