A Very Creative, Powerful Novel
Reviewed in the United States on November 2, 2018
Will Nnedi Okorafor ever stop giving us takes that are complex, yet clear, filled with imaginative wonders, and a plot thicker than any substance known to man? I hope not. She's a gifted writer who has truly gifted readers with her tales. This one could be my favorite. It has so much to offer, and I enjoyed feasting on the pages of this glorious, cutting tale.
I think that this book is clearly not only a tale, but a clear warning to take heed of. Nnedi Okorafor is a great storyteller, yet here there are many opportunities to learn, for many terrible truths betide us. We need to truly understand that we are human, but myopically arrogant in our place on a planet that has seen many events, and our entire existence is but a blip for the third rock from our sun.
When you read this, I hope it will hit you with the searing clarity it did for I. This is not a pretty book, yet it is truer than I could have ever imagined a fictional story could be. It holds up a mirror and dares us to really look. I am very pleased that I had the honor of doing so. I highly recommend this well-penned novel. It has every element that any truly great writer weaves an excellent tale with, and Nnedi Okorafor is writer who can wield these tools with exceptional skill.
Read this book. It is a Must-Read, IMHO.
As Always, I Wish Happy Reads to All from the Unapologetic Book Junkie 😉!
