Reviews

PRAISE FOR BINTI: HOME

"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: Home is a rich, complex story of identity, family, and friendship. It's the rare sequel that exceeds the expectations set by the first--a futuristic story that is nonetheless vivid, emotional, and timeless." --Veronica Roth, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Divergent series

"Okorafor's writing is even more beautiful than I remember it being in Binti, evocative and sharply elegant in its economy." --NPR

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

PRAISE FOR BINTI AND NNEDI OKORAFOR

"Okorafor's writing is wonderful, and the details of her world-building -- including Binti's rich culture of origin, living spaceships, and maths that reads almost like music -- are complex and fascinating" --Veronica Roth

"Binti is a supreme read about a sexy, 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 Pumzi and From a Whisper

"There's more vivid imagination in a page of Nnedi Okorafor's work than in whole volumes of ordinary fantasy epics." -- Ursula Le Guin

"Okorafor's impressive inventiveness never flags." -- Gary K. Wolfe on Lagoon
