    *This review also appears on my blog Genie In A Book*Thank you to Allen and Unwin for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review Eat the Sky, Drink the Ocean holds a collection of stories just as captivating as its title. Compiled by a variety of authors from Australia and India, it is something that had a charm and allure from the very first pages. The graphic sections were just as fascinating to read into as the words on the page, and I can honestly say that each and every [...]

    divabooknerd/2015/02/aEat The Sky, Drink The Ocean is a compilation of both whimsical and illustrated short stories from both Australian and Indian Authors that stemmed from the power of women all around the world. Each story is based on a dystopian alternate reality and range from the engaging and quirky, to the strange yet enthralling. From the Australian dystopian story by Justine Larbalestier, author of Razorhurst comes Little Red Suit. The storyline follows Poppy, a girl who lives undergrou [...]

    Actual rating 3.5Short story anthologies are a wonderful creation; the reader either follows their favourite authors to an anthology, or they’re drawn in by the theme, but they inevitably discover new authors to keep an eye on. This collection is no exception.This collection presents seventeen stories set to break stereotypes, cross boundaries, and examine what it means to be human. With seventeen stories, there are too many to give an entire run down, but even the less captivating of this bun [...]

    The best speculative fiction - if not, by its very nature, all speculative fiction - explores issues of social justice and ethics, often along the lines of discrimination, prejudice and, beyond that, cloning, robotics - all things that ultimately lead to that unanswerable question: what does it mean to be human?In 2012, a young medical student was travelling on a bus with a male friend in Delhi, India, when the five men and one teenaged boy on board beat her friend and dragged her to the back of [...]

    I saw this at the library and decided it looked interesting. I had not heard about it before seeing it on display. It is a fascinating combination of narrative short stories and graphic shorts created by Australian and Indian authors and illustrators. The point of the book is to highlight struggles of teen girls with harassment. The book came out of a series of events that occurred close together in both countries where teen girls were the victims. Many of the stories depict a future where girls [...]

    I've spoken in other short story reviews that most collection of short stories are a hit and miss. As a collection there are many voices. Some that sing to you and others that are just noise. In this short story collection, out of seventeen short stories I enjoyed eight. I am kind of shocked. That is just about half. The reason I'm shocked is because every time I picked this book up I thought I hated it. Apparently I only hated half of the stories. Hate is also too harsh of a word. I wasn't inte [...]

    (Review copy provided by Allen and Unwin)Oh I do like this collection! Not all of the stories were particularly enjoyable for me, but I had many favourites, both written and graphic-novel style, and the ones that struck me… they stayed with me. They stay with me. In their diversity and imagery and messages. This is such a wonderful collection of stories, both for what they are and what they mean.

    Electra Reads
    Possibly the most feminist story collection I've read since Joanna Russ' The Zanzibar Cat. Pushes the boundaries of what anthologies contain and how they tick.

    Lavender
    cool, futuristic-setting stories and full of eye-opening or empowering feminism

    Nina (JustAddAWord)
    Where, oh where, to begin?Let's see. The primary reason why I wanted to read EAT THE SKY, DRINK THE OCEAN was because of its promise to introduce the reader to a collection of feminist short stories written by collaborating Australian and Indian authors. I mean, how cool is that? And so, I was instantly intrigued. Now. In regards to promising thought-provoking stories about girl-power? This book delivers. Absolutely. I love love love the messages being shared here, and they are, indeed, thought- [...]

    Anni (Tea in the Treetops)
    Eat the Sky, Drink the Ocean is a collection of short, speculative stories written and illustrated by Australian and Indian authors. Some are collaborations, while others were written independently. There are several stories that use pictures but most are in the usual short story format. Some of the Aussie authors involved include Kirsty Murray, Isobelle Carmody, Margo Lanagan, Kate Constable and many others. I wasn’t familiar with any of the Indian authors but I enjoyed their stories so much [...]

    Soooo as with all anthologies, some were better than others. There were none I really LOVED, but overall it had really great themes about women/girls, and I loved how the Australian and Indian authors collaborated on it. Full review to come!__________________________________There are a lot of great things about this collection, and number one is that it’s all about girl power.Who run the world, right?It’s not always just about girls – it’s about girls AND guys, and society’s changing p [...]

    I was supplied a review copy of this book by Allen & Unwin. Thanks! Here is my review:The marvellously titled Eat the Sky, Drink the Ocean, edited by Kirsty Murray, Payal Dhar and Anita Roy, is an anthology of short stories and comics by Australian and Indian women writers. The stories could all qualify as ‘speculative fiction’ in some way and there is a strong feminist element to them. What is a little more unusual about the anthology is that there is a collaborative element to many (bu [...]

    Lindsay
    Absolutely stunning collection of short stories, short comic stories, and one play, written as collaborations between Indian and Australian authors and artists in response to rash of violence against young women. The stories all touch on feminist themes (though "Cool" felt a little out of place, though I liked it still!) with strong female protagonists and are so vivid, at times I forgot which ones were the comics and which were the written stories. I lost myself in the whole collection. Time to [...]

    Blending short stories, mini graphic tales and the most beautiful cover this book is a delight. There will be a tale here for everyone. Kirsty Murray, Payal Dhar and Anita Roy have bought together illustrators and writers from India and Australia and set them the challenge to sometimes work together but each must create stories of girls and women. The tales which left echos after reading for me were Memory Lace by Payal Dhar, Little Red Suit by Justine Larbalestier and the illustrations for The [...]

    Annie Zaidi
    Even if I say so myself (since I've got a story in this anthology), it's a great read. A mix of graphic stories and regular short stories for young adults. Yes, it's speculative. Yes, it's feminist. And I found myself thinking a lot about the nature of hope, rebellion, and women's relationship to the earth, cutting across national borders, given that this anthology is a collaboration between Indian and Australian writers.

    Allison
    Always tough to rate anthologies but this was a strong selection of magical and feminist tales. This is a mixture of short graphic stories and regular prose, and the combo really works.

    Cassandra
    Eat the Sky, Drink the Ocean was delicious! It is filled with empowering short stories regarding feminism and the environment. There are also beautifully illustrated comics. What I love most about this book (besides the amazing cover design) is the focus on collaboration. Writers from opposite ends of the world were paired up to discuss global issues and then write a story together. This is one of those books that I want on my shelf at home, so I can re-read it over and over again.

    Elise (TheBookishActress)
    This is a story collection I really wanted more out of. And that's not to say anything about thetalent of these authors; in fact, I think a lot of these stories were fabulous. But these stories aren't long enough. Most of these are story prompts meant to intrigue readers, rather than full stories of their own. If I could read full books based on these, I think many of those books could become new favorites. But in this form, I wasn't too impressed. I am not joking when I say almost all my favori [...]

    Sabrina
    This anthology was beautiful, I would have loved to read most of the short stories as full length novels. Anarkali, Swallow the Moon, Cast Out, and Cat Calls were my favourites, but each of the stories were so unique and completely unpredictable.

    Lauren
    3.5 stars, close to 4! There were some really great short stories in this collection, but also some I wasn't so crazy about.

    Llyr Heller-Humphreys
    Wonderful collaborations. There's a story for everyone.

    Liz
    (Review also posted at: lizkatemcshane.wordpress/)My heart ached. I don’t think I’ve ever wanted to write that sentence as often as I did while reading Eat the Sky, Drink the Ocean, an anthology comprised of ten short stories, six graphic stories and one play script. As noted in the introduction by Kirsty Murray, the anthology was inspired by protests in Delhi and Melbourne following violent crimes against young women in late 2012 (the women are not named, but they are presumably Jyoti Singh [...]

    Melina
    After violent attacks on women in both India and Australia, Eat the Sky, Drink the Moon was created as a collaboration between authors and artists from both countries. The book consists of speculative fiction short stories, graphic stories and a script looking at imagining women in a different world.As you would expect when you look at the list of authors involved in this project, there’s some wonderful writing in here. The one that stands out most vividly is Margo Lanagan’s Cat Calls, which [...]

    Ed Goodbooks
    Anjana Raghavan reviews the book on Goodbooks: "Eat the Sky, Drink the Ocean is one of the most complex, layered collection of stories I have had the pleasure of reviewing. The conceptual core of the book is strongly, lovingly, feminist, and is a tribute to women – particularly victims of violence. A cross-continental collaboration, the stories have been crafted by artists and writers from Australia and India. Historically and spatially, both Australia and India have very intense and complicat [...]

    Kelly
    I picked this up solely because it was written by women authors from India and Australia and in response to crimes committed against women in those countries. Short stories are not my thing, but I liked this collection because the focus of many of the stories was on women's issues, and the dystopian/sci-fi/fantasy genres worked well for me. This would be good book for both Women's Lit/Women's Studies classes and Science Fiction classes.

    Lou
    So I read this purely for a review purpose and while I enjoyed it to me there was no stand out story I absolutely loved throughout the collection hence only the three starts. To be honest I enjoyed reading the introduction and authors views on the collaboration process more then most of the stories. It is actually really interesting how this collection came about and I feel like it would serve well in schools as it looks at some important issues but not always in a linear way. Some f the stories [...]

    Abhaga
    A nice indulgent, quick read. It is not a very polished collection but some stories are striking. My picks are Anarkali, Cast Out and What A Stone Can't Feel. I also liked Weft, The Wednesday Room and Mirror Perfect.
