    Loved it!

    Just finished reading Binti’s second book. Absolutely brilliant! Not perfect, mind you. But very engrossing, especially if the core topics resonate with you. Binti’s journey, as beautifully fantastical as it is, is fundamentally about her coming to grips with her unfolding identity and where her true home is. Frustrating at times, but very relatable, because many of us have been there. Questioning our upbringing and culture(s), finding out and then consolidating who we truly are and our never ending quest to that elusive “Home”. I would add that this time around the whole Meduse-drama is moved more to the background in favor of Binti’s identity-struggles, especially when another big thing gets revealed. All in all I have to say I love the second book more than the first!

    The Journey is....?

    “What will you be?” she asked. “Maybe it is not up to you.” Binti Ekeopara Zuzu Dambu Kaipka of Namib has spent a year at Oomza Uni. As Master Harmonizer, she is supposed to be able to balance situations. However, her trauma from the previous year is interfering in her studies. It’s time to go home to Earth to complete her pilgrimage, to return to herself, to return to her people. The question is, will they accept her? She returns with Okwu, her friend, the one who saved her when she almost died the year before. Okwu is the first of its kind in generations to come to earth where it’s kind are seen as collective enemy. But it and Binti go to Binti’s home, the Root, where she will leave on her pilgrimage. The question is, will she complete it as she expects to, and what will she learn? When I read Binti a few years ago, I simply fell in love with the writing as well as Okorafor’s story. When in searching for something else I ran into the second (and third) in the story I could hardly wait to read them. And I wasn’t disappointed even though it is obviously a ...to be continued... Highly recommended 5/5 [disclaimer: this is a library book]
