Wow. I love it when I turn my nose up at a book because too many reviews are telling me how great it is--only to eat crow when I finally give in and read it.

I loved Onye's voice and will look for more from Ms. Okorafor.

A fitting end to the series. I really loved Binti and her world. Thank goodness I have more Nnedi to put on my Kindle with the 2nd Akata book.
