Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for Noor

"A searing techno-magical indictment of capitalism from one of the strongest voices in fiction." —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"
The novel’s true magic lies in AO’s stubborn, fierce will; in DNA’s earthy compassion; and in their self-discovery and refusal to give into a power system determined to dehumanize and defeat them." —Booklist (starred review)

"Okorafor exposes the cracks in this technology-driven, highly surveilled society as each detour in AO and DNA’s route adds layers of intrigue on the way to a jaw-dropping finale.... This is
a must-read." —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Okorafor packs
swift action and harsh emotions into this slim novella, showing her strengths once again as a speculative fiction writer." —Library Journal

Praise for Nnedi Okorafor


"
Haunting and absolutely brilliant. My heart and guts are all turned inside out." —John Green, New York Times-bestselling author of The Fault in Our Stars

"Who Fears Death is one of the most striking, chilling, truly fascinating, and all-around remarkable novels I've read in a very long time.” —Peter S. Beagle, bestselling author of The Last Unicorn

"Nnedi Okorafor is American-born but her Nigerian blood runs strong, lacing her work with fantasy, magic and true African reality. Many people need to read Who Fears Death, it's an important book." —Nawal El Saadawi, bestselling author of Woman at Point Zero

"To compare author Nnedi Okorafor to the late Octavia E. Butler would be easy to do, but this simple comparison should not detract from Okorafor’s
unique storytelling gift." —New York Journal of Books

"Both wondrously magical and terribly realistic." —The Washington Post

"Believable, nuanced characters of color and an unbiased view of an Africa full of technology, mysticism, culture clashes and true love." —Ebony Magazine (editor's pick)

"A fantastical, magical blend of
grand storytelling." —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Beautifully written, this is dystopian fantasy at its very best. Expertly exploring issues of race, gender, and cultural identity, Okorafor
blends future fantasy with the rhythm and feel of African storytelling. " —Library Journal (starred review)

"Her pacing is tight. Her expository sections sing like poetry. Descriptions of paranormal people and battles are
disturbingly vivid and palpable. But most crucial to the book's success is how the author slowly transforms Onye's pursuit of her rapist father from a personal vendetta to a struggle to transform the social systems that created him." —The Village Voice

"Okorafor is
a master storyteller who combines recent history, fantasy, tradition, advanced technology, and culture into something wonderful and new that should not be missed." —RT Book Review (top pick)
