The Binti series is one of the deepest set of books I’ve read in years. It’s full of heart and soul-searching, featuring a young woman who desperately wants to know who she is amidst the many cultures that would claim her. Binti travels through space, sets foot on a new world, expands her knowledge beyond anything her people have seen. She experiences parts of her heritage she had never known and becomes a part of new heritages she could never have imagined. It’s a beautiful series, one that deserves to be treasured.
The new trilogy includes a short story that fills in some gaps between the first and second novellas. We see Binti still coping with the loss of her friends, trying to fit in at her new university. We see her struggle with her traumatic experiences and in the end, she meets a few friends she desperately needs. The short adds a little to the epic saga, and left me with hope that there’s much more to experience in the world of Binti.
