4.5 Stars for Narration by Robin Miles
3 Stars for Story

For me, this was an odd story that tried to connect old traditions of a culture with a futuristic world. While there's plenty of symbolism threaded into the tale, I didn't feel a deep connection between the symbolism to Binti or the plot. This short story lacked depth for me. There are hints of conflict but it's not expressed in a manner that makes a strong impression. There just wasn't enough to make me visualize the settings, humans or aliens. The blurb tells the whole story and the story did not add to the blurb.
