Reviews

Praise for the Binti trilogy:

"Okorafor's writing is even more beautiful than I remember it being in Binti, evocative and sharply elegant in its economy....What Binti: Home says, ultimately, is that traveling the galaxy is relatively easy compared to understanding ourselves and each other--and that this is crucial, necessary work." -NPR

"[Binti: Home] opens up Binti's tale in astonishing ways, while provocatively exploring questions of identity and kinship." -Chicago Tribune

"Binti is a compact gem of adventure, bravery and other worlds. Nnedi Okorafor efficiently and effectively uses the short format to create a visual, suspenseful ride. And the heroine, Binti, invites us along to participate in her secret mission. From the start she is special and destined for greater things, but without knowing the tests that will challenge her resilience. As a result, her heroism and vulnerabilities grab our attention, holding tight until the end." -USA Today

"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

"Binti is a supreme read about a smart, edgy Afropolitan in space! It's a wondrous combination of extra-terrestrial adventure and age-old African diplomacy. Unforgettable!" -Wanuri Kahiu, award-winning Kenyan film director of Punzi and From a Whisper

"Binti is like Ripley, having to deal with death and drama but in a really clever way that drinks from the pool of who she is. It's a beautiful, heady, a bit scary, and ultimately fulfilling piece of fiction that made me cry in its last paragraph because of its hopeful, uplifting ending." -Kirkus Reviews

"Binti's powerful feelings of displacement, loss, grief, and joy make this entertaining narrative vivid, funny, and memorable." -Publishers Weekly

"Equal parts thriller, adventure, and quest, this work also serves as a timely parable about the power of educating girls. In spite of every possible obstacle, Binti is a girl determined to succeed, whose acute intellect will save her world." -Library Journal (starred review)

"The prose is vivid and unadorned, the pacing strong, and then developed as a whole deeply compelling." -Locus

"Full of the author's trademark inventiveness, Home follows Okorafor's compelling protagonist through a series of events that strip Binti of her comforts, her safe spaces, and her familiar tools in order to prepare Binti for the next stage of her journey." -SFRA
