Firstly, it's always great to read stories about people of color in scifi and fantasy. We do exist in the future.
Binti was unsurprisingly inventive and well written, as this is written by Nnedi O. My favorite bit tho is that this simple tale is so chock full of potential lessons and messages. For this alone it is worth every minute it takes to complete.

A great novella, well-deserving of the Nebula Award it won. Binti is a neat glimpse into a sci-fi future where individual culture is still present. I look forward to reading what comes next.

I enjoyed every minute but desperately want more, both of Binti's future experiences and background detail of the universe.
This was a truly enjoyable experience! The narrator's voice was lovely and very suited to the story of Binti, our brave little Himba adventurer and ambassador to a previouly dredded alien race.
The world building for this story is sublime & the prose is vivid with details of a future in which we travel the universe in living ships(!!) and there were such beautiful turns of phrases throughout!
This is definitely recommended listening and reading!
