Recensioner

Wow, I really enjoyed reading this! It's a brief look into a sci-fi world that is inhabited by all kinds of races and beings, but still steeped in familiar issues. Binti is a really interesting character; I truly liked reading about her math mind and "treeing", and this is coming from someone who loathes math. I'm also a HUGE man of the Meduse- they're a cunning, intelligent, and squishy race that I just pictured as giant pastel jellyfish and it made my reading experience 100% better.
The big downside of this book is what everyone seems to be saying: it's too short! I would have loved if this was even just 200 pages instead of its actual 90. The whole thing seemed almost like the sparse framework written up for a longer novel. I'm definitely going to continue this series, but I hope to see it bulked up a bit.… (mer)

Thoroughly fantastic piece of Africanfuturism with an immersive story and a main character who you can’t help but root for. I forgot how much I enjoy Okorafor’s writing style; it’s crisp and paints a really clear, detailed picture but it also very concise and never drags. The way Ghanaian culture, advanced technology, and alien elements are woven together in “Remote Control” makes for a unique work that feels grounded in reality yet so futuristic all at once.
Finally, the audiobook narrator, Adjoa Andoh, does an amazing job at narrating this story! I would absolutely recommend listening to her if you are able.… (mer)

This is an inspiring book, though it helps to go into it knowing that (1) it is short, and (2) it is about Okorafor's personal experience only. This is not a book about disability in general, but how her personal journey helped her to grow as a person and a writer.

In this novella, an adolescent Ghanian girl, Sankofa, finds an artifact in her family’s shea tree farm that changes her forever. The story reads like handed-down folklore but is actually set in the near future. After the artifact is lost, Sankofa wanders from town to town searching for it with a fox and a cat. She is known to the people she encounters as the Adopted Daughter of Death, and they treat her well so that she does not bring death to them. She lives up to her name in dealing with those who do not treat her well. Beyond that, discussing the story would be a spoiler, other than to say that it reads like an ancient mythological quest set in Africa in a future world with robots. Although I do not generally read science fiction/fantasy, this story is much more as it explores familiar themes of loss, redemption, and female empowerment in a fresh way that drew me in. I enjoyed it even more than I did Ms. Okorafor’s Binti, which I read last year. I read along with the audio version narrated by Adjoa Andoh. Science Fiction/Fantasy, Afrofuturist fiction.… (mer)
