  • Cheryl DeFranceschi

    All the stars! Binti was so many things! You cannot help but love this brave and resilient girl. What a wonderful world-building, positive and radiant read. Loved loved loved it. You all have a great treat coming your way.

    Thank you to Tor.com and Edelweiss for the Arc in exchange for an honest review. And honestly, I loved it!

  • Carla Bataller Estruch

    ¿Por qué no se le pueden poner más estrellas?

    He reído, llorado y gritado con este libro. Un grandísimo final para una trilogía que tantas cosas buenas me ha traído...

    Ojalá la historia de Binti no acabe aquí.

    Things I love about the Binti series that are fully brought home in this satisfying conclusion:

    1) The creation of a future that is genuinely DIFFERENT. Not just medieval Spain but in space! Or contemporary geopolitics, but in space! Or aliens, but with our exact same Western social structure. I get confused, I have to reread, because things are WEIRD in the world of Binti. Wonderfully so. (And yes, of course there are recognisable aspects of current societies, but it just feels like one thing Ok

(And yes, of course there are recognisable aspects of current societies, but it just feels like one thing Okorafor most certainly does not lack is imagination.)

    2) The way the story highlights the struggle of acceptance and adoption of new ways, new cultures, heck, new body parts!, without losing the parts of your home culture that really truly matter. You can grow and change without losing sight of your roots, and Binti does this in the most remarkable ways.

    So yes. A +++, would recommend, great finish to the series.

    We pick up with Binti and Mwinyi heading back to Osemba and fearing the worst. The peace between the Meduse (Okwu's people, giant floating blue jellyfish) and the Khoush appears to be shattered and they will need a master harmonizer to restore it. But Binti may now be too different from her people for them to support her.

    These books are flawed. A lot of plot developments come out of the blue with no previous mention and change everything. Some actions of key characters make little sense, and characterizations feel inconsistent even within the individual stories. That being sad, it's crazy inventive, and very different from most other science fictional futures, coming from both unfamiliar Earth cultures and very alien space cultures with even weirder technologies.

    I recommend this whole series.

  • Rachel (Kalanadi)

    Yes, this was a good conclusion.

    That said, this is an interesting exploration of a different type of conflict with species who can hardly communicate. Binti has a role to play although it is one she does not even understand entirely. She returns back to school, to a place that has demonstrated that people of all possible modes of communication and lifestyle

    live in peace with a few simple accommodations and not only does it serve as a sharp contrast to her home planet, but to our world as well.

    I don't want to say much more about it but this is a great conclusion to this imaginative trilogy. Don't forget your

    on the journey.
