Binti #1

Tor – September 22, 2015

Purpose: received second book for review, diverse read

Source: Library

4 stars

This was super short, only 90 pages. But it packs quite a punch. This is about so much more than a girl going off to university. Binti has left everything and everyone she knows because she is the first of her people to be invited to attend Oomza Uni. It’s not as smooth a trip as she thought it would be. In the end, Binti is forever changed. She is irrevocably changed in ways that may prevent her from ever going home. Her identity is being altered and she has to be redefine/rediscover who she is. I do have to admit that I think that this is a story that I would probably enjoy a bit more in one long story instead of 3 short novellas.

 

Always Shine!
