Binti
Binti | Nnedi Okorafor
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 the gifts of her people and the wisdom enshrined within the University, itself but first she has to make it there, alive.PRAISE FOR BINTI"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 Punzi and From a Whisper

I always want to love Okorafor. But in the end I usually am more confused with a bunch of questions then I am happy and entertained. There is no denying that her imagination and creativity is out of this world I personally need more story and depth to her works to really enjoy them.

Completed my Astronomy course with Binti for an Outstanding grade.

For such a short novella, I feel like I need to think on it a bit to decide how I really feel about it & if I will be continuing on with the series. For now I‘m giving it 3⭐️

10/33 read for #newtsreadathon2019

This was an enjoyable short read! Strong emphasis on family and values and using those gifts in order to create people between people in order to ensure no further blood shed. I am looking forward to reading book two. (which I accidentally started with woops!)

Very good! I read this as part of a challenge to read a book set in space written my an author of colour, and while I read plenty of books by authors of colour, I've not read many, if any, that have been set in space. I really enjoyed it. I really liked Binti, who is smart, confident and goes after what she wants, even in the face of opposition. Her interactions and skills with the aliens are very good, and rather symbolic too.

Anyone else using bookly? I just started it today; not sure if I like it.

Review: I know people love it, so this is an unpopular opinion. I will say that I was distracted as I was listening to this, so maybe that's it. Also sci-fi usually isn't my cup of tea. Reminded me of Children of Blood and Bone a little bit. Book #4/7 #BFCR2 @wanderinglynn @BookBridget @bookishbelle @Econaghan @jmtrivera

LibrarianRyan @crazyspine yep. I thought it would do more than just time. Now for kids and teens who have to keep track of time for school etc I can see it‘s merits. 3mo
Bookwormjillk I don‘t but sounds like my kids might like it 3mo
Daisey I downloaded it, but I don‘t generally need to keep track of my time reading and am really bad at keeping track of time. 3mo
DGRachel I have mixed feelings about the Bookly app. I like it for print books in that it gives me an idea of how much longer it will take me to read a book once I start it and sometimes that‘s helpful to know (like when I‘m trying to decide whether or not to stay up past my bedtime to finish a book) but it also feeds my negative obsessive tendencies, which is not good. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 3mo
sudi I had the app but i always forgot to turn it om when i started reading. It just makes reading seem like a chore, where everytime i have to remember to open the app to track my reading. Takes the fun out of reading. 3mo

Listened to this narrated by the Robin Miles. It was lovely to hear an African based sci-fi narrated by her voice.

The book was a little simplistic for me, I wanted a bit more depth and exploration of certain things but the aliens, Binti's culture and the actual events of the book were wonderful.

I enjoyed this novella, but didn‘t “love” it - probably because it was too short to develop ideas and expand on them properly. Interesting premise where a Namibian Himba girl leaves Earth to study at a distant university on another planet, and finds adventure and a new life on the way. Still, a good read, and I‘m interested to keep reading the series and getting to know Binti better. 4.0/5.0 ⭐️ #2019

@LibrarianRyan You completely out did yourself with the package! First, I love all the books (so many) and I can‘t wait to dive into them. Second, the book hugger is “out of this world” and I can‘t believe you made it. The game looks interesting and I love the little pins (especially the space boy/planet one). Seriously, everything is AMAZING!!! Thank you so much!! ❤️

LibrarianRyan @Jee_HookedOnBookz it‘s similar to a bible cover. I used the same basic premise I used to make bible covers when I was a kid, but changed up the design so you could make it stay closed but also it would fit on different thicknesses of books. I usually make them in 2 sized. Mg/ya and ya/adult. Eventually I‘m going to open an Etsy shop or something. I‘m working on stock right now. 6mo

Now this is some absolutely gorgeous sci-fi. I just ordered the other two books in the trilogy. I really need to invest in a kindle😅 It‘s such a short novella - only 90 or so pages, but in that time I was immersed in this incredible universe Okorafor created. And Binti is a strong, interesting MC

Binti deserves all the love it has been getting here on Litsy ♥️

JoScho You are tearing through the books this weekend! ❤️ 8mo
whippoorwill815 I did the same as you! I read the first as part of #newyearwhodis and immediately got the other two! I definitely recommend a Kindle and I think @JoScho would too as we are in the minority group here on Litsy that prefers them 😜 8mo
hermyknee @whippoorwill815 @JoScho which kindles do you guys have / recommend?? 8mo
whippoorwill815 I have the simple Paperwhite and love it! I‘ve had it for almost 2 years now and had a now defunct Kindle Touch for about 4 years before that, so I‘ve been using a kindle for a while! I do know there are much fancier ones now but mine isn‘t that old and I don‘t have a need to upgrade at the moment so I‘m happy with my Paperwhite! 8mo
JoScho Yes @whippoorwill815 and I are in the minority but seriously I adore my Kindle. I have the Voyage but think the Paperwhite is great and used it for years. The new Paperwhite has a flush screen and is waterproof and has audible. It is hard to beat that. 8mo

Original and intriguing, and for a novella, it touched on a lot of topics, such as tradition, intolerance, social class conflicts, and war. Hopefully the next two in the trilogy explore those topics more. I'm excited to continue reading about this powerful female character.

I listened to this gorgeously-done audiobook last night while cooking & doing dishes. I‘ve heard so many good things about this novella, and for the most part it lives up to the hype. I did feel like the resolution was a little too swift & didn‘t adequately deal with certain plot points, though. I wish it had been developed into a full novel, taking the time to more fully resolve the conflict. Hoping there‘ll be more development in the other two!

Well I am late to the game on this one, so this is not news, but... this is very good. Lived up to the hype for me. I'll be reading the next one, and in audiobook again because narrator Robin Miles was fantastic (also not news, I know).

BarbaraJean You‘re not alone—these have been on my to-read list almost since the first one came out, but I still haven‘t read them! It‘s good to know the audiobooks have a great reader—will have to prioritize these from my long list of “favorites” on Hoopla! 8mo
llwheeler @BarbaraJean Same! The audio is pretty short, about 2.5 hrs so it was great to break up some longer reads I'm in the middle of. Hope you like it when you get to it! 8mo
