Publisher's Summary

Binti has returned to her home planet, believing that the violence of the Meduse has been left behind. Unfortunately, although her people are peaceful on the whole, the same cannot be said for the Khoush, who fan the flames of their ancient rivalry with the Meduse. 

Far from her village when the conflicts start, Binti hurries home, but anger and resentment have already claimed the lives of many close to her. Once again it is up to Binti, and her intriguing new friend Mwinyi, to intervene - though the elders of her people do not entirely trust her motives - and try to prevent a war that could wipe out her people once and for all.

Best Series Hands Down

I listened to all 3 of the stories in the Binti series and I was enthralled from beginning of Book 1 to the end of Book 3. I didn't want any of it to end. The story, the narration, the characters... everything was perfection. I felt like I was traveling through space and time with Binti. Well done. Well done.

A Seriously Fantastic Trilogy

I have nothing but praise for all of Okorafor's books. Binti got me back into reading after a really long break and I can't recommend it enough!

Masterful storytelling

The entire series is captivating. Nnedi holds the reader tight throughout the journey. Robin's performance brings life to all the characters.
This is a must-read.

Great book, I was hoping for a longer story. I hope this is not the end of Bindi and her interesting friends especially her transgender roommate/college friend. (Is there a movie in the future? It would put Wankada to shame) 😂

Great series with one complaint

I've listened to all 3 books of the trilogy and I recommend it because it's mostly good. I like most of the story and the ending surprised me.

My pet peeve is the point that Binti smokes a cigarette. She is 17 at that point, and living in the future. Will there really be cigarettes then? Will teenagers have access to them? Probably not. I'm nitpicking, I know, but if the author took out the part with smoking the books would lose nothing whatsoever.

This was a new author for me and I would be interested in more of her books; I'm always looking for literature from around the world. I loved the narration as well.
