Nnedi Okorafor

Almost a Strong Novel...


A cool premise and some decent characterization but ultimately did not work for me. The story went in all sorts of directions and ended up somewhat incoherent. Characters come and go - some return while others are not heard from again. I feel like Okorafor almost wrote a strong novel but may have lost focus at a few critical junctures. For a short book there was a lot here to like. It just didn't fulfill the promise of the early chapters.
