i definitely want to read the next one, but this left off in a pretty unsatisfying place. ( )

Summer 2019 (Hugo 2019 Catch-Up);

This book felt so confusing, which is the biggest reason this got two stars, and you can stop there with my review if you don't just want an extended list of things I still don't understand.



What are the things I don't understand, those of you who stayed, might ask?

I still don't understand how these two races aren't still. How did they manage to stop everyone-everywhere all at once at the end of novella one? How is everything hunkydory at the school, pretty much with only a little handwaving of some tensions and skirmishes here and there? Why is Binti throwing temper tantrums everyone just sits patiently through? How is it realistic at all that everyone let her fly home on Third Fish? What is treeing and why has it still not truly been explained as anything except a crutch when Binti needs to calm down? Why is everyone grabbing Binti's new tentacles like no one in this universe has the faintest clue what consent or politeness or asking is?

I did like that she needed to go home. I did like that she was desperately certain and focused on going to go on this spiritual pilgrimage. I did not like that her pilgrimage was hijacked, very quickly I might add, and that she never much cared about the fact it was. Or related still having problem to the not going. I found it entirely too convenient that she happened to bump into more relatives with more insight into being even more alien than she's become by merging with the Meduse.

But nothing bar nothing knocked this book down to two stars, maybe even 1 and half like that last page. I can handle a cliffhanger like anyone's business if it's set up well enough and the book was entirely engrossing, and I've got a payload of promise coming in the next one. This one? Was so poorly done I felt like I was rounding a corner and slammed straight, face-first, in a brick wall, and even getting to pick up book three right after on my kindle, I still feel put off entirely by it.

More of a 3.5.

While the first novella was about Binti trying to find herself, this time the story dives into her sense of belonging - what happens to her home when she has changed as a person, is she now alien to the family and culture she grew up in, was it so wrong of her to think beyond her people and be ambitious. As she grapples with all these questions and decides to return home for a visit, she is also struggling with PTSD from the attack. I thought the trauma and it’s affects on her were depicted very realistically, and how it translates into her unique friendship with Okwu. She also gets to examine her own prejudices when the reality of her heritage comes to light, and she is forced to make more difficult choices.

Just like the previous book, the world isn’t really explained and most of its left to our imagination. I’m still confused as ever by the sci-fi elements her and Binti’s treeing abilities but it’s the underlying themes of the story that matter and I liked exploring them through her eyes. The story also ends on a very tense cliffhanger, so I can’t wait to read the finale immediately. ( )

OOOOOOMMMMMMGGGGGGGGG this was so gooooooood!!!!!! The magic and mystery that seems to shine most in Okorafor's MG & YA books is here, and it just makes me so happy!!!! I love it all the more because it just happens to share some similarities with [b:The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet|22733729|The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet (Wayfarers, #1)|Becky Chambers|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1405532474s/22733729.jpg|42270825]. This book really propels the story. Book 3 cannot get here fast enough.

So great the second time around. Night Masquerade, here I come!! ( )

It's been a year since Binti left home and began attending Oomza University. Her studies are going well, but she's having emotional difficulties. She keeps having bursts of increasingly difficult to control anger. She's also suffering from PTSD-related panic attacks. Anything that reminds her of the slaughter on the spaceship that brought her to Oomza Uni can bring them on, including her best friend, the Meduse Okwu, who also happened to be one of the beings who participated in the slaughter.

Binti secretly fears that the changes the Meduse made her undergo have somehow made her unclean. She decides to return home and go on a pilgrimage to help cleanse herself. However, her journey soon takes an unexpected turn and forces her to confront her prejudices and some of the things she thought she knew about herself.

One of my biggest complaints about Binti was how it seemed to brush off the horrible things Binti had gone through. She lived through the slaughter of most of the people on her spaceship, several of whom she'd become friends with, and she spent a period of time terrified that she would die too. The Meduse physically changed her without her consent, robbing her of the hair she'd braided to reflect her culture. So what did she do? She became friends with one of the aliens who participated in the slaughter and who'd threatened to kill her as well. It made my skin crawl and put me off this series to such a degree that I almost couldn't bring myself to continue on.

Yes, Binti is a "harmonizer," someone who, among other things, is supposed to act as a peacemaker. I was fine with her acting as a mediator for the Meduse, but it wasn't necessary for her to also become friends with one of them so quickly after they traumatized her on multiple levels. In Binti: Home, I finally got the emotional reactions from her that I'd expected in the first work, but still combined with her bending over backwards to try to make her friendship with Okwu work. I know other readers enjoy their friendship, but I can't understand why. It struck me as unhealthy and harmful for Binti.

There were some interesting revelations in this volume, and I know there's only one more novella to go, but I think I'm done with this series. It rubs me the wrong way, and I'm not interested enough in the direction it's taking to want to continue on.

Within a small space, Okorafor efficiently depicts several distinct cultures and portrays a strong and unusual heroine.
