Binti - The complete triology av Nnedi Okorafor


Includes a brand-new Binti story!

Collected for the first time in a trade paperback omnibus edition, the Hugo- and Nebula-award-winning Binti trilogy, the story of one extraordinary girl's journey from her home to distant Oomza University.

In her Hugo- and Nebula-winning novella, Nnedi Okorafor introduced us to Binti, a young Himba girl with the chance of a lifetime: to attend the prestigious Oomza University. Despite her family's concerns, Binti's talent for mathematics and her aptitude with astrolabes make her a prime candidate to undertake this interstellar journey.

But everything changes when the jellyfish-like Medusae attack Binti's spaceship, leaving her the only survivor. Now, Binti must fend for herself, alone on a ship full of the beings who murdered her crew, with five days until she reaches her destination.

There is more to the history of the Medusaeand their war with the Khoushthan first meets the eye.

If Binti is to survive this voyage and save the inhabitants of the unsuspecting planet that houses Oomza Uni, it will take all of her knowledge and talents to broker the peace.

But even if Binti achieves this remarkable feat, it's not the end of her story. For this lone Himba woman, now bonded with a Medusa and forever changed by this bond, still must find a way to survive and thrive at Oomza University amid swirling interspecies biases. And eventually, she must return home to test the strength of the fragilepeace she worked so hard to win.

Collected now for the first time in omnibus formand introducing a new Binti storyfollow Binti's journey in this groundbreaking sci-fi trilogy.

Bokomslag och beskrivning hämtad från Adlibris.

Den första korta berättelsen i denna trilogi har jag läst/lyssnat på två gånger innan jag valde att köpa denna kompletta triologi av dessa kortromaner om Binti, tillsammans blir de som en romanlång berättelse. Sen har jag ägt boken ett tag innan jag nu läste den.

Jag gillade den i överlag, men den var lite trög att läsa, men jag kan inte säga varför, kan ha berott på mest att jag var lite i en lässvacka, för jag gillade den och speciellt hur den slutade  men även vägen dit.

Nu vet jag inte alls hur den här recensionen blev, det låter som jag både rekommenderar den och inte, men den fick fyra stjärnor av fem möjliga av mig så....
