"Nnedi Okorafor writes glorious futures and fabulous fantasies. Her worlds open your mind to new things, always rooted in the red clay of reality. Prepare to fall in love with Binti." ―Neil Gaiman, New York Times bestselling author of American Gods
"The prose is vivid and unadorned, the pacing strong, and the novella as a whole, deeply compelling. I enjoyed it. I hope Okorafor writes more." ―Locus
PRAISE FOR BINTI: HOME
"Okorafor’s writing is wonderful, and the details of her world-building ― including Binti’s rich culture of origin, living spaceships, and maths that reads almost like music ― are complex and fascinating" ―Veronica Roth
"Okorafor's writing is even more beautiful than I remember it being in Binti, evocative and sharply elegant in its economy." ―NPR

"Nnedi Okorafor's imagination and worldbuilding are unparalleled, as are the heartfelt emotional struggles she creates." ―Jim C. Hines, author of Blood of Heroes and the Goblin Quest trilogy
PRAISE FOR BINTI AND NNEDI OKORAFOR

"There's more vivid imagination in a page of Nnedi Okorafor's work than in whole volumes of ordinary fantasy epics." ― Ursula Le Guin
"Okorafor's impressive inventiveness never flags." ― Gary K. Wolfe on Lagoon

Anyway, I loved this book and all of the myriad characters and cultures therein. Not sure what it says about me that Third Fish and New Fish were probably my fave side characters, but who cares - they were darling LOL
Some answers come at a high cost, some sacrifices end up being for naught, but Binti will keep readers hooked until the very last page.
My one issue is that at the end the colonialism elements of Oomza Uni get glossed over, and it seems like the university is treated as a universal good, despite having taken the Head Meduse's stinger in the first book. All the sinister elements of the university get dropped or at least unaddressed. However, this didn't detract from my enjoyment of the story, and if this is the last Binti story, it feels satisfying.
