Nnedi Okorafor

January 31st, 2017


Binti has been at Oomza University for a year now, learning more about mathematics. Her Meduse friend Okwu has been learning about weapons, and the two have become quite comfortable at the University.

Binti starts to notice that her concentration has been wavering of late, and she’s prone to unusual bouts of anger. She decides that perhaps it’s time she visited home, and made her pilgrimage. Okwu wants to go with her.

Okwu would be the first of the Meduse to peacefully visit Earth since the long war with humanity ended.

Binti: Home is the sequel to Hugo and Nebula award winning Binti, and covers Binti’s return home, and some long buried secrets about her history. It’s just as delightful as the first book, and continues the story in a way that leaves you anticipating the follow up.

Great novella about interesting characters working through clashes between cultures and species, and discovering who they really are. Add to your buy list, and get Binti if you haven’t already.
