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.

I do prefer to read a physical book and this was my first audio book...due to the library being closed (coronavirus😒) and the type of work I do. But let me say this was fun!! what a captivating narrator and book!😍

so good

I'm so glad I read these books, I really loved the story of Binti, I wouldn't mind more if she decides to speak to Nnedi again. in this final chapter the mysteries of the first two are all neatly wrapped up. I really enjoyed it and would recommend it highly

Great cultural interactions

This series of 3 short novels is a lovely introduction to being open to other cultures than our own, what we could tolerate and learn from and grow from if we only observe and stop being so tribal. This is great for any age reader.

Great story that sucked me in

This book brings the trilogy to an end in a neat satisfying way. So immersive I got lost in the words and performance.

A Journey Inward

The Binti series tells the story of an amazing journey that starts with Binti moving farther away from her home than ever before. The outward journey of the first book is wonderfully foiled in this finale that has Binti reflecting inwardly on who and what she is, as well as her place in the cosmos. From outer space to molecular structure Nnedi Okorafor beautifully navigates the reader through Binti's search for purpose and meaning--a story greatly enhanced by Robin Miles's more than capable narration.

My thoughts on Benti

I liked the journey but thought her lack of rage when she thought her family had perished was off.
