Journal Entry 1 by wandering from Breda, Noord-Brabant Netherlands on Monday, August 27, 2018
Blurb:

Her name is Binti, and she is the first of the Himba people ever to be offered a place at Oomza University, the finest institution of higher learning in the galaxy. But to accept the offer will mean giving up her place in her family to travel between the stars among strangers who do not share her ways or respect her customs.

Knowledge comes at a cost, one that Binti is willing to pay, but her journey will not be easy. The world she seeks to enter has long warred with the Meduse, an alien race that has become the stuff of nightmares. Oomza University has wronged the Meduse, and Binti's stellar travel will bring her within their deadly reach.

If Binti hopes to survive the legacy of a war not of her making, she will need both the gifts of her people and the wisdom enshrined within the University, itself - but first she has to make it there, alive.

Boekje is hier ook alweer even. Door de drukte niet aan het journallen toegekomen. Nu herfstvakantie, dus een beetje meer ruimte.

Heb nu toch de tijd even genomen om deze novella te lezen. Ik vond hem goed te doen, ben benieuwd naar het tweede deel. Ik zal bookguide een PM sturen.

My son cane in with the post after work today. “What have you been ordering?”, he said. It’s what I usually ask him. ;) I’m really looking forward to reading this, but I’ve got two other book rings to read first. That hasn’t happened for years! Thank you for making this into a ring, wandering, and for sending it on, dutch-book. I’ll get to it as soon as I can.

Very special story that reminded me of the books by Philip Pullman (His Dark Materials) and The Book of Strange New Things by Michel Faber. Binti sure is a feisty character, leaving her family and her world behind for an uncertain future at Oomza Uni. In this short novella, Nnedi Okorafor manages to create a complete new world/universe/galaxy. After a little over 80 pages, she had me totally hooked and curious to know what would happen next. Thanks for ringing this little gem, wandering!

I will mail Smitie1405 for her address.

Ik heb het boek ontvangen. Ik ga eerst mijn andere fantasyboek uitlezen, waarna ik aan deze ga beginnen.

Journal Entry 15 by wingSmitie1405wing at Rotterdam, Zuid-Holland Netherlands on Friday, April 19, 2019
Een groot voordeel van je auto naar de garage moeten brengen voor onderhoud is dat je dan ruim de tijd hebt om een klein boekje uit te lezen. Ik moet eerlijk zeggen dat ik nog niet goed weet wat ik er van moet vinden. Het is knap dat de schrijfster zo snel een diepe wereld kan creëren, maar ik vond het soms best verwarrend. Ook heb ik nog nooit zoveel keer het woord otjize in een boek gezien. Dat mocht van mij wat minder.

Het gaat door op de post naar Inge1990

En Binti lag gisteren al bij mij in de bus, met ontzettend leuke postzegels!

Aangezien vandaag de 25infive (25 uur lezen in 5 dagen) begonnen is, ga ik deze daar lekker voor gebruiken en lezen. Samen met nog een ander ring boek. Heerlijk aangezien ik zaterdag, zondag en maandag vrij ben (op wat gebruikelijke klusjes na dan)

Ik ben benieuwd!
Bedankt Smitie voor het opsturen!
