Okorafor's girl group try a shortcut into the jungle to go to school Baboons defend their encroached territory but Okorafor apparently still lives in 1905 and doesn't care Yawn Even Hindu mythology was evolved millennia ago; Prince Rama befriended monkeys to defeat a kingThe author would've won my respect had she pinned the heroine against worthy euals perhaps mean boys

Summary Kabu Kabu º PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Le previously published short work a new novella co written with New York Times bestselling author Alan Dean Foster and a brief foreword by Whoopi Goldbe. There seems to be several very specific subgenres to immigrant fiction ie fiction written by and about immigrants This one is definitely the nostalgic variant Wherein an immigrant first or second generation author waxes nostalgic about the place their family was once so desperate to leave No easy task mind you the country here is Nigeria and as described in this book and other books I ve read set there categorically not a place you d ever want to visit To uote one of the characters an African American man before any accusations of racism rear their uglies it s a fcking jungle rife with jungle people or something like that But potential accuracy aside that really is an ugly way to describe the place And the author takes a different approach altogether she steeps Nigeria in magical realism and fantasy her jungle is set in fairy tales it seems of ancient legends and traditions The thing of it is though is those traditions are sometimes along the lines of subjecting women to circumcisions and deliberate fattening to prepare for a marriage Or a variety of eually barbaric seeming familial relations And granted I can be easily accused here of approaching this book from a Eurocentric first world privileged feminist perspective but fck that uality of life is an objectively measurable thing that s why there are global lists of such things civic rights education levels wealth infrastructure political representation gender euality etc all uantifiable things all charts Nigeria would do abysmally on And no amount of fairy tales can change that or cover it up there s no gilding a turd So with that in mind it s difficult to enjoy this book and really get into the author s tales no matter how well crafted but for the record above average they may be Though I enjoy magical realism and science fiction not fantasy really there was consistently too much ugly brutal reality to consider this an enjoyable read Was the goal to represent Nigeria as a backwards tribal war zone steeped in poverty and superstition passed on for tradition If so this book was a resounding success This seems to be the author s chosen genre African infused fantasysci fi blend She wrote Binti series too of which I read book one and have no intention on pursuing the series I know there s a certain fascination third world holds for the first worlders explaining such disgusting thing as poverty tourism among other things but personally I don t care for it If I m reading a place I d never ever want to set foot in I d much prefer actual realism or at least less smokescreens and shadow puppetry to make up for the unpleasantness behind the scenes Then again maybe the goal here is to represent and explain a place through its mythology If so I m not sure it uite does that Maybe the terrifying backwardness of the overall mentality gets in the way The horrifyingly medieval attitude toward women aloneI m not uite sure any amount of magic empowerment levitating and so on can uite make up for that Seems that the best and possibly the only way to actually enjoy this book would be to completely shut off a ualifying discerning mind and just gooh nice that s a lovely story If you can t completely divorce the context from the place and the politics it s going to be as challenging of a trip as any unpaved Nigerian road offers whether it s in the magic cab kabu kabu or otherwise I did enjoy some of the writing and some of the ideas my favorite being the Zombie one but overall the juxtaposition of reality to surrealism didn t uite sing for me Give me a story of immigrant experience in their new country any day over this sort of thing First Binti now this ok ok this may not be the right author for me And I m probably in a minority in thinking this African speculative fiction is very hot right now Whoopi Goldberg for one loves it she provides a foreword to that effect So different strokes

A wonderful collection of fantastical short stories While I love fantasy in general fantasy short fiction is often a tougher sell for me the word limit means that stories aren t often given a chance to breathe and they lack that sense of space that I love in the best fantasy literature Nnedi Okorafor is able to avoid that problem by making most of her stories about magic encroaching on real people and real places concerned less with world building than with imbuing an existing world with the magical the weird or the horrifying Most of the stories take place in Nigeria with a particular recurring focus on the Niger Delta these latter stories which fill the conflict between foreign oil companies and the people of the region with fantasy or sci fi elements tended to be my favorite Many though not all are structured around a young woman discovering an unexpected element of magic either in herself with the handful of stories about the flying windseekers or in the the world around her This could have gotten old but it doesn t because it s used in such an interesting variety of ways I like how magic in Okorafor s world is so morally ambivalent depending on the context its empowering dangerous evil freeing destructive Looking forward to reading from the author
