Editorial Reviews

Review

"Riveting from its opening page... lyrical and compelling." ―Essence

"Once again the incomparable Nnedi Okorafor has written a thought-provoking and visionary tale of fantastic Black girl empowerment futurism." ―Ms. Magazine

"Episodic and organic, the story winds along with a limber rhythm that allows every rich detail of Sankofa's surreal world to surface. It's a cumulative narrative, a slow burn that builds in emotional urgency even as the scope of Okorafor's worldbuilding bursts into something breathtakingly vast." ―NPR

"Thrilling and surprising all the way through." ―The New Scientist

"
Okorafor's star continues to blaze brightly." ―Shelf Awareness starred review

"[Okorafor] has a rare ability to open the reader's mind to various futures while creating complex characters and communities... A captivating world, a tragic tale, and a dangerous future." ―Kirkus

"I loved so many things about Okorafor’s book. The futuristic details have wit, energy and brilliance, but there is also genuine depth to the narrative: a serene, folktale-ish cadence that feels timeless." ―bookreporter

"
As the winner of Nebula and Hugo awards, Okorafor has been embraced by the field, and in Remote Control she takes the acclaim and uses it ― in an assured manner ― to radically undermine the stories that the world tells to manifest its power." ―L.A. Review of Books

"A beautiful, sad, enthralling novella set in a futuristic Africa, Remote Control is a refreshing oasis of creativity... I implore you to discover this lovely, captivating story for yourself." ―BookPage

"Okorafor builds a stunning landscape of futuristic technology and African culture, with prose that will grab readers from the first sentence." ―Library Journal starred review

"This imaginative, thought-provoking story uses elements of the fantastic to investigate the complexities of gender and community outside of a European, colonial imagination. Readers will be blown away." ―Publishers Weekly starred review

"Full of emotional depth and resonance, this is beautiful." ―The Big Issue

"
Narrator Adjoa Andoh captivates listeners with a stunning new sci-fi novella set in a near-future Ghana. Andoh is perfectly in tune with Okorafor's compelling story." ―AudioFile

"Bewitching." ―The Philadelphia Inquirer

More Praise for Nnedi Okorafor

"Nnedi Okorafor writes glorious futures and fabulous fantasies. Her worlds open your mind to new things, always rooted in the red clay of reality." ―Neil Gaiman

"The details of [Nnedi’s] world-building―including Binti’s rich culture of origin, living spaceships, and maths that read almost like music―are complex and fascinating" ―Veronica Roth

"There's more vivid imagination in a page of Nnedi Okorafor's work than in whole volumes of ordinary fantasy epics." ― Ursula Le Guin

"Okorafor's writing is even more beautiful than I remember it being in Binti, evocative and sharply elegant in its economy." ―NPR on Binti: Home
