    I would not read this without reading the previous Binti books, Binti and Home. So much of the detail in this story comes from the world-building in the first two, and reading the third is a much richer experience with that knowledge under your belt. That said, this is an interesti...

    This was a bit of a slow starter for me - but a very satisfying conclusion to the trilogy. So glad we got off planet earth again, and back to my favorite setting of the Binti stories - space and Oomza Uni! ...

    4.5 stars for this title, 5 stars for the trilogy. I am so glad I waited to read this until it was a complete set. The audiobook is narrated beautifully, by the way. I had some concerns that were never addressed, such as the Meduse stabbing Binti in the back(of the neck) withou...

    Binti: The Night Masquerade I enjoyed the Nebula and Hugo award-winning Binti very much, and thought the sequel, Binti: Home, was even better. There were many reasons to look forward to the conclusion of this trilogy: we were left with an exciting cliffhanger, some new revelations...

    This one was hard to get through. There was too much of Binti being hysterical, whiny, and unsure of herself, which I suppose was understandable considering everything going on with her, but it was exhausting and irritating to read about. Also, there were way too many things happening ...

    3.7 Previously: While Binti was at her father's people , the desert people, barely grasping the new knowledge delivered to her , she feel something very bad happening at the Rook , the family home. So we deal with a overwhelmed girl, between bouts of flashbacks from the original...

    ¿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. Relectura 25/06/2018. He vuelto a llorar. ...

    2.5 Not as enjoyable as the first two books which I found surprisingly inspiring. I was so lost when I started this book (which picks up right where the second book ended) that I had to go back to the last book and re-read the last chapter. From there I was pretty much disgrun...

    Eh? This book has two sides to it. On one hand, there's deaths! There's a battle! There's an explanation finally behind the mysterious edan! On the other hand, (major spoilers!) (view spoiler)[ everyone who is thought dead magically is in fact not dead! There is no definitive reason gi...

    At the end of Home, Binti had connected with her father's people, the Enyi Zinariya but while with them received news that both her family and her friend Okwu were under attack by the Khoush, another human tribe. We pick up with Binti and Mwinyi heading back to Osemba and fearing t...

    I was very pleasantly surprised when I read Binti, adored Binti: Home and was somewhere between moderately satisfied and ecstatic while reading The Night Masquerade. The writing and the world-building are superb, as usual. While this trilogy is not very long, as a reader I had no i...

    So, I'll admit this isn't my kind of sci-fi. I went into BINTI with high hopes because of all the hype and praise and came out confused and definitely on the wrong side of the fandom. That being said, though, I enjoyed HOME a lot more and was very keen to see where things would go for ...

    3.5 stars While I didn't like this one quite as much as the previous two, it was still very good, and packed a real emotional punch in parts. I just generally love Okorafor's flowing and visual prose; her complex characters; and her imaginative worldbuilding. Robin Miles does su...

    The finale of the Binti trilogy weaves everything together into a finale that blends the multiple strands of politics, sf, race wars and fantasy. Wonderfully vivid writing and wildly imaginative. I don't know if I liked it as much as book 1, possibly because the *scope* of the story fe...

    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...

    Actual review: 3.5 ?The way people on Oomza Uni were so diverse and everyone handled that as if it were normal continued to surprise me. It was so unlike Earth, where wars were fought over and because of differences and most couldn't relate to anyone unless they were similar.? ...
