Rated: 4.9/5 Stars!

Binti was a belated Christmas present by my grandmother who asked what I wanted this year, and I said books. I gave her a list of some of the most anticipated reads, and what kind of things I liked, and she found Binti among them. Granted, it was a lot shorter than either of us realized, but it was also very entertaining. My only single complaint was how short it is! I want more! 91 pages isn’t nearly enough for the excellent world-building that the author does!

I’ve been seeing this book pop up all over my social blogs that I follow, and am glad to jump on the band-wagon while the book is still fresh and popular. I also am pleased to add to the hype of this book, even despite how ridiculously short this book is. It was also yet another read for my mother, who only has time for ridiculously short books, and she too enjoyed this one immensely.

I really am interested to see if this will be turned into a television show or movie set. It would be a fascinating movie/tv show, and I know a lot of people would be eager to see it if it came to be.

Binti, herself, is one of my most favorite literary characters of the year. I really admire her strength in going out and achieving her dreams…even if her dreams are waylaid by mysterious dangerous aliens that only she can communicate with. I really felt as though Binti was a different version of Uhura from Star Trek, but only more bad ass than usual!

I can’t say enough good things about Binti. It was wonderful, epic, grand in scope. The characters were fascinating, and her people were intriguing. I loved everything about Binti, but I do wish that it was longer, and just…

I need more.

I rate this book an almost even 5 stars, only one part of a star taken off because its so short.

And now, as I’m adding the rest of the Binti series to my Amazon wishlist, you can,
