Read this yesterday and wow! It's been a while since I've read something with such an absorbing writing style. Descriptions are vivid, the story is told in an authentic voice, and there's even an interesting tie to a literary classic (not going to name it here because I think that might give some of the story away).

My only complaint is that it's toooooooooooo short. I bought the kindle version, so didn't immediately realize Binti is a novella. Just as I was getting into it and couldn't wait to see what came next.....it was done!

I agree! I read it so quickly, I was absorbed. But! She's working on #2! So at least we have that to look forward to.

Here's an article about Okorafor's inspiration for "Binti."
