Her name is Binti, and she is the first of the Himba people ever to be offered a place at Oomza University, the finest institution of higher learning in the galaxy. But to accept the offer will mean giving up her place in her family to travel between the stars among strangers who do not share her ways or respect her customs. Knowledge comes at a cost, one that Binti is willing to pay, but her journey will not be easy. The world she seeks to enter has long warred with the Meduse, an alien race that has become the stuff of nightmares. Oomza University has wronged the Meduse, and Binti's stellar travel will bring her within their deadly reach. If Binti hopes to survive the legacy of a war not of her making, she will need both the gifts of her people and the wisdom enshrined within the University, itself--but first she has to make it there, alive.… (mere)

Excellent short novella. ( )
  Abcdarian | May 18, 2024 |
Novella set in an undefined future with a mix of coming of age and alien encounter. Quite well written even though the technology is mostly left unexplained. ( )

This review is also featured on Behind the Pages: Binti

As one of the Himba people, Binti carries a piece of her homeland with her in the form of clay. Covering her body and hair, the clay is a steadfast reminder of her culture and heritage. As Binti makes her way to the University transport, she will face scorn due to her appearance. Yet she is wise and does not give in to social pressure. Binti is an enriching character, staying true to herself and her beliefs despite the opposition she faces.

But this is where the worldbuilding of Binti’s people ends. Readers are told her family will disown her for leaving the planet, and aside from what she carries on her person, their culture isn't expanded on. There are many moments in Binti where only the surface explanation is given. When Binti begins to form friendships it is told to the reader rather than shown. The connection is not formed quickly enough for the events of the books to emotionally impact the reader.

When Binti faces the Meduse, the story picks up speed and adds an almost horror like quality to the writing. The trauma she endures is told to the reader, and Binti’s reactions are shown, yet the emotional side is not apparent. Physically Binti reacts terrified and lost, but readers are not allowed deep enough into Binti’s thoughts to experience it.

Binti is a quick reading novella with both horror and sci-fi elements. This is a book for readers who enjoy plot development and fast-moving scenes. ( )

A young woman goes against her cultural expectations when she's accepted into a university in space. I loved her bravery, fear, intelligence, and ingenuity. When her ship is attacked by jellyfish-like creatures she is left to fend for herself. It's a beautiful story and reminded me a bit of the later Ender's Game series books. I can't wait to read the next one in the series. ( )

Very interesting and quick read. I wish Okorafor had made it a little longer with some more details simply because it was a fresh idea and fascinating characters. I'm sure the next two books will flesh out more of the world; but this left me wanting more (also the sign of a good writer though). ( )

"This was my first time leaving the home of my parents. I had never even left my own city, let alone my planet Earth. Days later, in the blackness of space, everyone on my ship but the pilot was killed, many right before my eyes, by a people at war with those who view my own people as near slaves."
