The Book of Phoenix by Nnedi Okorafor took me completely by surprise in the best possible way. I went in really not having any idea what to expect, and what I got was a near future sci-fi wrapped in a post-apocalyptic sci-fi starring a Nigerian anti-heroine who I grew to love in the way only fictional characters can make us love. I also was surprised that my new favorite narrator, Robin Miles, performed this audiobook and (not surprising) she was absolutely perfect. I am now completely hooked on this author and will be promptly diving in to the companion book!

I enjoyed it right up to until the end and then the end confused me. I don't like this "let's just start over attitude" because humanity will always have good and evil and degrees in between no matter how often we are wiped out and we start over again. I prefer that good fight evil and for a while wins even if it can't last. However this book was beautifully written and performed and perhaps others will be able to see the hope in it that I couldn't find.
