The Marrow Thieves by Cherie Dimaline Summary
In a futuristic world ravaged by global warming, people have lost the ability to dream, and the dreamlessness has led to widespread madness. The only people still able to dream are North America’s Indigenous people, and it is their marrow that holds the cure for the rest of the world. But getting the marrow, and dreams, means death for the unwilling donors. Driven to flight, a fifteen-year-old and his companions struggle for survival, attempt to reunite with loved ones and take refuge from the “recruiters” who seek them out to bring them to the marrow-stealing “factories.”
The Marrow Thieves Book Reviews
There are a lot of interesting themes and subtext and symbolism within the story that tie the futuristic dystopian society of the book into very real issues of today, and the analogies just in terms of how the non-Indigenous of this country often view Indigenous people in society and how Indigenous cultures and traditions and very livelihoods tend to be overlooked and disregarded by them unless or until they desire something or think they can gain something from it and so decide to claim it for themselves is so quietly yet effectively done.
Frenchie, the narrator, was really well written; a character who naturally draws in a reader’s attention and exudes different facets of emotion and personality that are easy to relate to and see yourself in. The rest of the group of characters were also well written, but less so than Frenchie, and I’m hoping one of the reasons for this is because this is going to eventually become a series, so the others will get their chance to be even more fleshed out in later installments.
I found myself particularly drawn to the character of Chi-Boy, a very astute but reserved young man, who was one of the characters whose ‘coming to’ story wasn’t elaborated on, and so I’d love to see him more in the spotlight in a future book.
As for the ending, I couldn’t have asked for a better one – and I’m usually the kind of reader who’s rarely satisfied by book endings (even with books I really love). It didn’t wrap everything up neatly or end necessarily on a super positive note (in regards to the dystopian society), but it was hopeful and beautiful and sincere. And again, it gave enough as a solitary ending but left it reasonably open for future books should the author turn it into a series.
