What a joy it was to read this book which blended African culture and science fiction. The story is rich and well defined. The characters, especially Binti, believeable. I particularly liked the unusual tech in this future vision, including biological spaceships. The narrator, Robin Miles, is superb. Her performance covers so many emotions. I cannot wait to dig deeper into the rest of the series.
Firstly, it's always great to read stories about people of color in scifi and fantasy. We do exist in the future.
Binti was unsurprisingly inventive and well written, as this is written by Nnedi O. My favorite bit tho is that this simple tale is so chock full of potential lessons and messages. For this alone it is worth every minute it takes to complete.

A great novella, well-deserving of the Nebula Award it won. Binti is a neat glimpse into a sci-fi future where individual culture is still present. I look forward to reading what comes next.
