Bookanista Feature: Catherine Fisher's INCARCERON

The Bookanistas are a group of writers - in various stages of the publishing process – who have decided to band together and review the special books of our peers.  No negative reviews here! We post every Thursday and cover various topics– upcoming ARCs, books we love, special diamonds in the rough, classics, and even cover reviews.




INCARCERON by Catherine Fisher


This is a strange book. The first chapter is brilliant. I won't tell you why. Just read it. I finished INCARCERON a week ago, and I'm still thinking about it. It's a delicious blend of utopia and dystopia.  Here are the thoughts that keep pestering my head:
  • How much of a prison do we make our own lives, whether we're imprisoned or not?
  • How far are you willing to go, for the greater good?
  • At what point should you leave friends behind? Break a promise? 
  • If you could create the perfect world--would you? At what cost?
  • How much of yourself should you give to protect those you love?
  • Is it okay to use a few people, if you're trying to save a lot more?
  • At what point does sacrifice become cruelty?
So...if you like books that make you ask those sorts of questions--"thinking" books that really dig into your brain--check INCARCERON out!

    I LOVED this book for all of the above reasons. I especially loved how it was a blend of everything - utopia, dystopia, Victoriana, fantasy, and sci-fi. My favorite was definitely the weaving of mythology into the world of the Prison.

    SusanneWrites said...

    Didn't know about this book yet. Added it to my to-be-read list. Thank you! :D

    StefanieEmmy said...

    I read Incarceron two weeks ago and loved it! It's not only fantasy, but at some times also seems like a historical novel although it all takes place in the future. This sounds confusing, but the fun part is it isn't :D That and the characters are what I loved most about Incarceron :D

    Renae said...

    I have this book in my to be read pile on the bookshelf. I just love the cover! Thanks for the review!

    Stina Lindenblatt said...

    I have the arc for the sequel, but still haven't read this book. I guess I better do that BEFORE the sequel hits the stores.

    Karen Akins said...

    I just started reading this...three chapters in. It's beautifully written, and so very dense (the descriptions, the plot, the world-building). Can't wait to finish it.

    Carolina Valdez Miller said...

    I can't believe I haven't read this yet. I feel like a loser. Because any book that can make you think about all those questions at once has to be amazing. Great review! I'm impressed by any book that can feel longlasting in your mind like that.

    Tere Kirkland said...

    Heard good things about this book. I think it just moved up a few places on my tbr list! Thanks for the recommendation.

    Shannon O'Donnell said...

    I loved this book! And those are the perfect questions, Beth! :-)

    Elana Johnson said...

    I tried this one a while back, and it didn't hook me like crazy. But my husband then read it and is raving about it, so I just need to pick it up again. Great review!

    L.T. Elliot said...

    Oh, those kinds of questions are MY kinds of questions. I'll totally be checkin' this one out.

    Kirsten Hubbard said...

    this is one I checked out from the library, got busy, and had to take back. I'll definitely give it another try!

    Natalie Aguirre said...

    I loved this book. Can't wait for the sequel.

    bed dissertations for sale said...

    My hearing disability required me to constantly ask everyone, "What did he/she say?" I worried that everyone would soon grow tired of repeating everything back to me. Fitting in was so important to me that every time people around me laughed or smiled, I did the same even though I usually had no idea what was going on. This was repeated at the dinner table at home. Whenever my family had company, I felt left out because I missed the secrets, stories and punch lines. To cope with this, I always volunteered to do the dishes so that I could be excused from participating in the discussions. No wonder my hands were so soft all these years!

    Mphil Dissertations said...

    An important part of an attorney’s job is to protect the client’s rights during a trial. This includes making sure that the only evidence presented during the trial is evidence that is proper, relevant, and allowed by law. So if evidence is submitted that the attorney feels is improper, or if the attorney feels that the other side is asking questions that are unlawful, the attorney will call out “Objection!” By doing this, the attorney is asking the judge to rule on whether the law allows that particular piece of evidence or statement or question to be admitted. If the judge thinks it should be admitted, the judge will say “Objection overruled.” If the judge agrees that the evidence in question is improper, the judge will say “Objection sustained.” How often an attorney raises objections during the trial shouldn’t bias you against that attorney’s case.

    Human Resource Dissertation Help said...

    According to Jesus, the most important thing anyone can do is to love God. But what does it mean to love someone we can't see or touch? And how can we obey the command until we understand its meaning? With inspirational insights from her own life and the lives of others, the author explores what it means to love God with all aspects of our being-heart, soul, mind, and strength.

    this is a hard one. there are tons of books that i absolutely adore, and will re-read countless times. but if i had to pick one favorite book, that has influenced my reading habits from the moment i read it on, for the past 12 years, it would be Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine (the one with the above cover). i think it spoke to my love of fairy tales, my love of feminism, my love of romance, and also my love of unicorns. i just fucking love this book. no two ways about it.
