24-25/17 Binti and Sequel

By Nnedi Okorafor

The books are Binti, and Binti: Home.

These were books I found on your Kindle, so I have you to thank for that. I enjoyed both! They’re very easy, interesting reads, taking completely out-of-the-world ideas and somehow, over a very short span of time, and suspending our disbelieve so that we think, “Yes, this could be.” And I really think the very innovative plots of these books is what marks them as great books. I don’t think I’ve ever come across aliens anything like these ones before.

They are short, though, which means you just can’t get that much out of them. The plot progresses so quickly that you’re jumping from one planet to another, and you don’t connect so much to the characters. Except the main girl and her alien boo. They’re cute. And their little drama in the second book made me smile.
