    This is an author that I discovered from the Lavar Burton Reads podcast. I really enjoyed the cultural aspects of this series as well as the main character. The world building in this novel is really creative. The first two novellas are zippy reads but could use a little more character...

    I?m really glad to have this as a collection in one volume so I could read the whole thing at once, and really get into the intricacies of the universe, so rich in detail and culture. Some of this was a reread but I enjoyed getting back into the story ...

    I was blown away by the character of Binti and the rich culture that I was immersed in through these stories. Okorafor did an amazing job of showing compelling details of Binti's home culture, from everyday life to special rituals, and the description of the environment felt real and l...

    The Binti stories concern a young African woman's adventures between home and university. They take place in a future world with advanced technology, aliens, and interplanetary travel. The four stories in this book see Binti run away from her family to attend a university on a remot...

    I?m wavering on how much I liked this book. Book club discussion usually bumps me up a star but no so with this book. There were some elements I loved but too many of them were underdeveloped. And it?s not a good sign when the author has the sentence ?it was so...anticlimactic?...

    Ever since the first Binti novella came out, I?ve been hearing all about it. I jumped at this collection when I saw it at the bookstore, then, because I find it difficult to grab hold of novellas otherwise. I don?t care if Tor.com pushes them on me for free sometimes: I need it in ...

    Delighted to read the Binti stories in one book. Love every Binti bit. The visuals are amazing; the settings written with such skill, when there was dust in the air, I coughed, too. Binti learns without threadbare plot devices. Binti is a Himba living among Khoush, a mathematics sensit...

    Binti: The Complete Trilogy is a bind up containing all three novellas (Binti, Home and The Night Masquerade) in Nnedi Okorafor's award winning Binti trilogy plus an extra short story called Sacred Fire. I'll review each of the stories separately but I've really enjoyed the whole serie...

    3.5/4 Binti: The Complete Trilogy by Nnedi Okorafor is the entire collection of Binti novellas plus a brand-new story in one hardcover edition, and the book is beautiful! This is a collection of Afrofuturistic stories that has been on my radar since the first story has come out; I r...

    I think the new story, Sacred Fire", was an excellent addition for the Binti's story. I had always wanted to know more about Haifa and the Bear! Reading more about Binti is always as coming home. ...

    Binti is a breath of fresh air for people who come from fantasy epics and space operas that inundate the reader with exposition. The three books, all taken together, are about 450 pages long with large margins and a decent font size. Okorafor's pacing is quick-at times perhaps too quic...

    ARC received from the publisher (DAW) on Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I enjoyed this series of novellas immensely. I've had Binti on my TBR since 2016 and in a way, I'm glad I waited until now - even though this is my first read, they work far, far better as one book....

    You know what? I love this trilogy. The growth of Binti along with the rest of the cast of characters is nothing short of amazing. Binti's strength throughout these three books is a testament of a black woman's perseverance even through the worst of situations in life. Ms. Okar...

    The Binti trilogy is a very beautiful coming of age story that depicts what it is like to not meet the expectations of those around you and what it means to disagree or be different than your family and culture. Binti chooses to go to Oomza University despite the risk that she will bec...

    3.5 stars. I read Binti, the first novella, last year and thought it was really cool! I'm glad I read the others, although I'm rating the full trilogy lower than I rated the first installment. There were some really interesting concepts introduced in the other two novellas, but s...

    Mar 22, 2019
    Great ideas, really nice and interesting characters, but I felt the first story needed to be longer and therefore more easy to feel and understand its impacts, while the third just wasn't my cup of tea and a little messy. I really liked the second story, but even that wasn't perfect f...

    3.5 Stars - I have heard an immense amount of hype about BINTI and the subsequent novellas from Nnedi Okorafor, so I was excited to be able to give this bindup of the stories a try. These get full marks from me on investment in characters, world building, and set up/premise. Alas, I do...

    The author begins her tale on earth, in Africa, but the earth she describes isn't a familiar place. Binti is a "harmonizer," but her flair for harmony seems a bit faulty, despite having been recognized as a prodigy in the field. Binti's strength is drawn from thinking in mathematical e...

    This was an odd read for me, I think because the storytelling style is so different from anything I've encountered before. There were times when I felt like I was being tossed around from one event or description to another in a clunky way, and there were other times when it flowed ver...
