Patti's Book Nook says:

This review was somehow gorgeous….which is a weird way to describe a review- but that picture was so exotic, combined with the planet details and the math element…just sounds perfect. I also like the novella length, so I’m much more likely to get to it by the end of the year. I feel a little slumpy on larger books at the moment for whatever odd reason! Thanks for bringing this to my attention:-)

Alistair says:

I have this on the TBR list, but undecided whether to ‘read’ or audio-book it? I heard a ‘sample’ and liked it.

Common Touch of Fantasy says:

Good review Rachel! Glad you liked it so much. I enjoyed it too.

FinalBlowJoe says:

I read Lagoon last week and despite having some issues with it I will still happily read more by her in the future. This sounds like a good candidate. It’s good to see equality fully integrated too, as it should be. Good review yet again Rachel.

Sookie Skipper says:

There is always pragmatism in Okorafor’s works. She explores rich cultures of Africa as a part of plot and her characters (women, especially) are intelligent, of science and wonderfully grounded. Good review. I will definitely pick this one up. Thank you!

I love this review. <3 100% agree. I also definitely want to check out Lagoon and more.

I also noticed from your “about” section that you’re also a Tamora Pierce fan, which is great because one of my most recent searches is “authors like Tamora Pierce.” Any chance you have a few recommendations to send my way? Thanks in advance!

oddeeti says:

I just finished reading Binti and immediately went looking for a review to scratch that itch to have a conversation with someone about a book you love. This was so much better than I could have hoped for; your review was so comprehensive and loving, I’m going to send it to anyone who still needs convincing to give it read. Definitely subscribing!

TheReadingOutlaw says:

Wonderful review, Rachel! I really really enjoyed Lagoon when I read it, so I’m definitely going to add Binti to the pile! I love that Okorafor isn’t afraid to have powerful women strong in the math and sciences leading her books!

Let's Read says:

Binti truly is the best novella of the year. There’s just no way anything could be better than this. Lagoon I thought was okay but this hit me so hard with each aspect of it’s story. The culture, the fiction, the message. You sum up the story so well that I don’t even think I can do a review now. I’ll just point everyone here.

Nicole's Adventures in SFF says:

This is the next novella in the line I have to read. Good to see your positive review, gives me a good impression going into it 🙂
