Binti by Nnedi Okorafor is the first part in a series of novellas centered around an intrepid and ambitious young woman; an interstellar adventure that was my first foray into Afrofuturism. (No, I hadn't known that was a thing until I started following Okorafor on Twitter; and as a mechanism to "critique the dilemmas of black people", with an eye on historical events and circumstances, it's got me hooked.) .

While I enjoyed the basic premise of a young girl breaking away from her relatively insular society and close-knit family to widen her horizons only to come more in touch with her cultural identity, the storytelling itself moved abruptly (and quickly, for this is a very short read). From her running away to the hijacking of her transport ship by an enemy alien species to her tentative overtures to the brokering of a truce. Phew. Too much, too quick. .

However the world-building, the creative imagination on display, with the idea of "treeing" and reaching a meditative trance with maths, while occasionally overwhelming are always, quite intriguing. .

Guess I'm sticking with this series 😃 .

Mpole huyu #Binti!,...

And of course it ends with a cliffhanger... Dear Nnedi Okorafor, I love your books, but could you maybe make them a little less fantastic? I'm trying to get a smaller TBR, but I also really want to buy your new book, because Binti: Home was so brilliant!
If anyone here loves sci-fi, but hasn't read Binti or Binti: Home, go read them! They are absolutely amazing!

Her name is #Binti, and she is the first of the Himba people ever to be offered a place at Oomza University, the finest institution of higher learning in the galaxy. But to accept the offer will mean giving up her place in her family to travel between the stars among strangers who do not share her ways or respect her customs.

Knowledge comes at a cost, one that Binti is willing to pay, but her journey will not be easy. The world she seeks to enter has long warred with the Meduse, an alien race that has become the stuff of nightmares. Oomza University has wronged the Meduse, and Binti's stellar travel will bring her within their deadly reach.

If Binti hopes to survive the legacy of a war not of her making, she will need both the gifts of her people and the wisdom enshrined within the University, itself - but first she has to make it there, alive

Weekend plans set. Here . . . we . . . go . . .

Yo quiero yo quiero!!! #binti

Wish this one were longer - I finished it in a single car ride! It was just such an engaging take on space; I like that Binti came from earth, and how different her culture was from others. Will definitely have to read the next one 😍 and my breakfast juice was AWESOME
