The thrilling sequel to the Hugo and Nebula-winning Binti.It’s been a year since Binti and Okwu enrolled at Oomza University. A year since Binti was declared a hero for uniting two warring planets. A year since she found friendship in the unlikeliest of places.And now she must return home to her people, with her friend Okwu by her side, to face her family and face her elders.But Okwu will be the first of his race to set foot on Earth in over a hundred years, and the first ever to come in peace.After generations of conflict can human and Meduse ever learn to truly live in harmony?Praise for Nnedi Okorafor:"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"A perfect dove-tailing of tribal and futuristic, of sentient space ships and ancient cultural traditions, Binti was a beautiful story to read.” – Little Red Reviewer“Binti is a wonderful and memorable coming of age story which, to paraphrase Lord of the Rings, shows that one girl can change the course of the galaxy.” – Geek Syndicate“Binti packs a punch because it is such a rich, complex tale of identity, both personal and cultural… and like all of Nnedi Okorafor’s works, this one is also highly, highly recommended.” – Kirkus Reviews"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

3.0 Book for Door 14 Hanukkah - "Binti Home" - love the writing - hate this publishing trend.
Let me start with a complaint so I can get it out of my system. I hate this emerging practice in Science Fiction to slice novels up into novellas and drip feed them to us. I hated it with Murderbot and I hate it with Binti. I was blown away by the first novella, "Binti" It deserved the Nebula and ...

3.5 Revew: Binti: Home
Undeniably well written and imaginative, but not a solid hit for me. I love that there are so many ideas this is practically bursting at the seams. But it ends in a very odd place. A place that feels more like the middle of a chapter than a break between serialized volumes.

3.0 World Building Got Too Complicated & Cliffhanger Ending Didn't Resonate

I felt really annoyed since I think every story should be able to end on it's own. Don't get me started on the proble...
