Publisher's Summary

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?

Abrupt Conclusion

i enjoy this series for what it's worth but this addition ends in an abrupt manner that left me startled. It was only beginning at the end, there was internal conflict (partially resolved), new characters introduced (no where near being fleshed out), new areas and concepts introduced (threads left loose and tangled together), and external conflict just beginning! I was ready to hunker down and be immersed deeper into the world and I was flatly denied.
Honestly, this book is near twice as long as the first but feels emptier.
I hope the third installment fixes the above issues.

Ends in the Middle

I really like Nnedi Okorafor. She brings a new point of view to the Science Fiction genre, which is really what the genre is all about. The character of Binti is an archetypical outsider, who finds her strength in the fact that she is part of more than one group, but doesn't truly belong to any.

My one problem with this book, is that it the end comes too soon. There is not even a partial resolution at the point where it stops. I'm eagerly awaiting the next installment, but really would have preferred if Okorafor had added another 10,000 words to come to some semblance of an ending to this installment.

Phenomenal book

A remarkable book. It out does the first entry by leaps and bounds. This is some of the most unique and wonderful scifi available. The unique cultures and worlds come together are nothing short of amazing. I've already started the sequel.

Need the 3rd

This felt like a lot of book 2 of 3. It’s purpose is mainly to get from 1 to 3. Think I will be listening to the whole trilogy again soon as I think I have missed a few things.

Loved the entire series!

My mother has been telling me for awhile that I needed to read Ms. Okorafor's works, so on a whim, I purchased Binti. This was definitely a "can't stop listening to it" series. Robin Mills was a perfect narrator for this, it truly brought the story to life for me. I'll be listening to this again, just like I read favorites books over and over.
