Finlandia Award winning novel Troll A Love Story, The Core of the Sun further cements Johanna Sinisalo s reputation as a master of literary speculative fiction and of her country s unique take on it, dubbed Finnish weird Set in an alternative historical present, in a eusistocracy an extreme welfare state that holds public health and social stability above all else, it follows a young woman whose growing addiction to illegal chili peppers leads her on an adventure into a world where love, sex, and free will are all controlled by the state.The Eusistocratic Republic of Finland has bred a new human sub species of receptive, submissive women, called eloi, for sex and procreation, while intelligent, independent women are relegated to menial labor and sterilized so that they do not carry on their defective line Vanna, raised as an eloi but secretly intelligent, needs money to help her doll like sister, who has disappeared Vanna forms a friendship with a man named Jare, and they become involved in buying and selling a stimulant known to the Health Authority to be extremely dangerous chili peppers Then Jare comes across a strange religious cult in possession of the Core of the Sun, a chili so hot that it is rud to cause hallucinations Does this chili have effects that justify its prohibition How did Finland turn into the North Korea of Europe And will Vanna succeed in her quest to find her sister, or will her growing need to satisfy her chili addiction destroy her Johanna Sinisalo s tautly told story of fight and flight is also a feisty, between the lines social polemic a

fiction who has published seven novels starting in the 90 s, of which this is the second to be translated It s a story of eugenics and social engineering with the premise of an alternate history in which women are shaped into a living dolls and congenial companions to men Those children that fit the femiwomen mold are anointed as eloi and trained in domesticity in special schools while those that are too brainy or butch get tagged as morlocks and are put on a track to menial work and barred from the mating game Thus, the tale expands upon Wells The Time Machine , with some of the flavor of Brave New World and The Handmaid s Tale There are a lot of nice touches in the presentation, but I just couldn t get very excited about the eugenics focus, which was inspired by experiments of a Russian published in the 50s in which feral foxes were bred for servility and affections toward humans A tamed fox created by selective breeding by one Dmitry Belyaev Why not use such means to make women submissive and foxy at the same time Our hero is a bright morlock girl, Vanna, passing illegally as an eloi Her personal quest is to find what has happened to her sister, Manna, whose disappearance seems to have been covered up The beginning is pretty engaging where Vanna is writing letters she can t send, recalling their idyllic childhood on their grandmother s farm after they lost their parents Her sister always wanted to be a princess sought by noble suitors, while she made up stories as a shepherd girl who became a warrior with a sword and tamed wolves at her bidding She writes Oh, my sweet, gentle sister Your heart was made of chocolate, your hands were full of comfort, your brain was full of pink fluff.Instead of being a revolutionary against the government as common in dystopian plots, Vanna just wants a path to get by A male friend she makes while working at her grandmother s farm sympathizes over her secret, slips her forbidden books, and helps her keep on faking as a pretend suitor Her rich life of imagination is boosted by synesthesia, such as seeing people s emotions in colors or smelling personal agendas pretty cool without super powers The negative side to her sensitivity is experiencing her inner self as a dark, creepy cellar under perpetual threat of a drowning flood The stresses of her situation contributes to Manna s growing addiction to chile peppers, forbidden in this society Soon she ropes her friend into helping procure various forms of illegal capsacium The dangers of the street trade in imported stuff leads them to team up with a mysterious vegan cult to grow their own special strains of super hot peppers Maybe they can make enough money as dealers to escape this isolated society For its part the cult seek the ideal zillion scoville product that may give them a chance to achieve some kind of nirvana.If that sound like spoiler revelations, it is the scope of the content for the promotional precis used by the publisher If the chile addiction subplot sounds silly, I thought so too There is no obvious satire here, but maybe there is a bit of tongue in cheek quality How else to take all the emotions surrounding a score and the rush like the typical heroin addict The fairy tale mood of the book gets diminished by a lot of scientific didactics and yadda to buck up the plausibility of how the capsicum substance by causing pain evokes a defensive response by the brain to release endorphins and release dopamine It was just too distracting from the human part of the story, analogous to infodumps about how magic works in a fantasy tale or how an anti matter drive works in space opera The same thing happened with the fictional encyclopedia or textbook excerpts on how this oh so healthy society evolved from eugenics and Walden like principles Better engagement to just show it in action If you think about it too closely, you realize that the male foxes were tamed too in the Russian study and relatively few genes distinguish the X and Y chromosomes.Still, I have to give the book credit for its atmospherics and psychological dynamics and for adding to the limited coverage of gender issues in science fiction And the surprising ending will be appreciated by a lot of readers I believe I look forward to trying other novels and maybe short stories Aside from prizes in Finland, one translated work achieved a Nebula Award nomination and a short piece won a Tiptree Award This book, which comes out in January, was provided as an ebook by the publisher through the

time In the letters that Vanna writes to Manna, you see her trying to tell her younger sister those things she is sure Manna was too young to remember If you were the baby in the family like me you know what it s like to have your older brother or in my case sister , tell you stories about yourself sometimes to fight back and say the story was backwards or they were over exaggerating , But Manna was missing she couldn t speak back to her sister Vanna writes that she remembers how Manna shrank and cried when they moved to a little farm in Finland to live with their only close relativetheir grandmother Aulikki who was nearly 70 years old We learn early in the story through Vanna s letters that their father had an illegitimate childbut it wasn t a topic of conversation YetI wanted to know Vanna shares about the memories which delighted them both..a stray cat had kittens which grandma Aulikki said they could keep but a couple days later they all disappeared Foxes lived in those woods Another memory was when both girls had to have their gender specified Social Workers examined their appearance showed them pictures gave them a variety of tests gave them different toys to choose from trucks, fluffy dolls It was the first time Vanna heard the words femiwoman and eloi Woman who are Femiwoman were considered fortunate to be designated as eloi trained to serve men basically submissive for their pleasures If a woman was considered too masculine or educated they were labeled morlocks.sterilized oppressed and coerced into demoralizing labor When Vanna was only 7 years old. she remembers a conversation her grandmother had with her change from her overalls to a dress play house with Manna be polite, agreeable, smile and copy everything her little sister did She learned men don t like little girls who are smart and curious So, although Vanna was intelligent, and perceptive,.she also learned to be clever She followed her grandmother s advice and managed to play along and pass herself off as an eloi Underneath her skirt, her shield of armor , was a girl who could kick ass October 2016 I lift my skirt, pull aside the waistband of my underwear, and push my index finger in to test the sample The seller s eyes go wide An activity in the wee hours of the night in the corner of a cemetery took place between Vanna and the seller a stranger The stranger took her money Vanna took a bag of illegal capsaicin, an ingredient found in chilies, which Vanna became addicted to , and stuffed it back under her skirt Vanna joined Jare in selling illegal chilies He knew her secrets and used it for his advantage Vanna and Jare alternated in narration Jare discovers a chili which is so hot, that it can cause hallucinations But Why would capsaicin, found in chili peppers be forbidden And will Vanna find her little sister, Manna a natural eloi , the little girl who always wanted to be a princess Oh, my sweet, gentle sister Your heart was made of chocolate, your hands were full of comfort, your brain was full of pink fluff Think of all the times we ourselves have concealed camouflaged and pretended..hiding our powers but aware of our powers , due to our gender alone I

eusistocracy, claiming that it values the happiness and well being of its citizens above all else Eugenics is being used to breed proper citizens those who don t meet certain standards are sterilized The decadence and decay of liberal countries is frequently emphasized in propaganda.Part of that foreign decay is the production of food containing that dangerous and addictive drug, capsaicin All spicy foods are banned, and there s an underground drug trade in chili peppers.Our main character, Vanna, has passed as an eloi femiwoman her whole life, due to her attractive looks However, she knows she s really a morlock, and that if she shows curiosity, initiative or other unfeminine traits, she ll be doomed to a life of hard labor Her life has been devoted to caring for her twin sister, who s always been a model of eloi domestic passivity The desire to provide for her helpless sister led her to drug dealing But now, her twin is missing, presumed dead, Vanna suspects her brother in law of murder, and in her grief she has turned to dipping into her own stock she s become a chili pepper addict.Vanna wants to escape repressive Finland with her dealer partner Jare but she also wants to find or find justice for her sister.The tone of the book is a bit odd, teetering between silly satire and earnest social critique I think it would ve been successful if it moved wholeheartedly toward the satire end of things, partly because the science here really doesn t hold up, and partly because the social elements that are critiqued here have been critiqued before, oh so many times The mix reminded me quite a lot of Atwood s recent The Heart Goes Last I d highly recommend this book to fans of that one.Many thanks to NetGalley and Grove Atlantic for the opportunity to read As always, my opinions are solely my own flag 15 likesLike see review May 18, 2015 Matti Karjalainen rated it really liked it review of another edition Recommends it for Henry Laasanen voisi lukea t m n Shelves

on gender roles and spiced by chili, what is there not to like At least for one interested in these things and who has lived in Finland in the past decade and has followed the discussion concerning the former that has even surfaced in the mainstream media, not always pleasantly, this book is a must read.Sinisalo s novel is set in dystopic Finland of the 21st century Vanna, or Vera before she had to be renamed to remove the unladylike letters r in her birth name, suits the norms of the society with her blonde good looks and manners, but feels alienated from the meek princess like ideals in the inside She has to hide her true nature as a strong willed individual from the society that has bred and cultured its women to serve as the perfect Stepford wives for the men for close to hundred years and at the same time has closed its borders to temptations, which might give moments of forgetfulness amidst the horrors, such as alcohol, drugs, or chili Yet Vanna, closer and closer to succumbing to mental illness represented by the basement that exists in her mind, cannot leave until she has found out for certain, what has happened to her sister, the one who had no problem living in the society.The story moves forward fast with short chapters telling the present that are supported by flashbacks, encyclopedia entries, and articles, which reveal the workings of the society These concise texts along with Sinisalo s smart writing make the reading seem effortless and rewarding as the horrible knowledge keeps accumulating At the same time, they manage to connect the reader to the heroes, who you end up caring much than about many who ve gained longer passages in which to relate to them.For someone who has followed discussions concerning some meninist thinkers and their supporters and or has read even a little about the kinds of ideas that existed concerning eugenics in the early 20th century, the subject matter of the novel is eerily strong Sinisalo has managed wonderfully to tie the history and present into a too believable scenario, which results in my favorite work by her to this date not that I ve read all I would recommend this to just about anyone, but perhaps a little background information is required for full enjoyment flag 2 likesLike see review Dec 20, 2013 Simo rated it liked it review of another edition Auringon ydin tarjosi mielenkiintoisen

fiction Set mostly in Tampere, Finland Society has been remade to a homogenous and congenial happy existence for all The author uses H.G Wells descriptors from Time Machine to label the types of citizens that make up this new society.Mosca are the men who have attributes and traits worth passing on to future generations The threshold isn t very high for this Eloi are the biddable women whose highest aim in life is to be married with kids and keeping house for the husband she is devoted enslaved to Within the first year of life, the female babies that show clear signs of not being good eloi candidates are labeled morlocks They are often abandoned to special orphanages for morlocks Or have a very high mortality rate from childhood accidents.In this new enlightened society, everything that detracts from a good healthy life is banned Alcohol, drugs and even the hot spices of chiles.Our heroine is Vanna, nee Vera it s not done for girls to have an R in their name, they are renamed when eloi training begins.The narratives are a mix of first person POV, letters to Vanna s sister, excerpts from various historical documents such as academic papers and government policies, and lastly the occasional POV of the main male character.I typically avoid reading the synopsis At best I ll skim it Not sure what I was expecting but it ended up being a rather wild ride.I m reminded of the excellent science fiction by Sheri S Tepper and Octavia Butler that highlight gender issues, discrimination, social ranks, etc.Solid 4.5 stars from me I recommend this to anyone flag 2 likesLike

occasionally real books and articles about the history of Finland, which explain the history and realities of modern Finland and through Vanna and occasionally her masco friend Jare s present day

referring to Jenny s Tale, but I don t really remember what I wrote any This book also made me appreciate my sister , since we are sisters, after all Finnish weird settled extremely well with me, overcoming my discomfort with considering the matters Sinisalo mentions in her story For example, I was so upset by the idea that intelligent, independent women got sterilized so that no of their sort

It was a treat to read this dystopian story by a star of Finnish fantasy and science fiction who has published seven novels starting in the 90 s, of which this is the second to be translated It s a story of eugenics and social engineering with the premise of an alternate history in which women are shaped into a living dolls and congenial companions to men Those children that fit the femiwomen mold are anointed as eloi and trained in domesticity in special schools while those that are too bra
