I really don’t know what to say about this story.. I think a bit too much of it went over my head. Meaning there was quite a big part that I didn’t understand. And it already started with the prologue, which I didn’t get. Which didn’t worry me at the time, since that happens more often in books, and you will get it later on. But that didn’t happen with this book.
AO was mostly an interesting character, although she did make some decisions that I didn’t understand. Which I think comes both from me not fully understanding the story but also because we did not get much time to get to know her.
Same for the main side character, DNA, we didn’t really know him so that made it a bit hard to understand him.
In the first half of the story it was not very clear to me where the story was going, which probably didn’t help much with my confusion. The second half was clearer, and I did enjoy it more then. But since the first half was not so clear and confusing, the rating for plot, intrigue, logic and enjoyment are a bit lower.
I always quite enjoy Nnedi Okorafor’s writing, and will definitely continue reading her works! This one was just not really it for me!
I can’t say too much about this one since it is quite short and I do not want to give any spoilers!
