Book Notes: Remote Control

Remote Control by Nnedi Okorafor
Read Dec 1, 2021 - Dec 5, 2021

Remote Control is a novella with similar themes to those in Okorafor’s other work (Binti, Akata Witch, Who Fears Death). The setting is a sci-fi West Africa where technology mixes with tradition in a way that borders on magical realism. The protagonist is a young woman with a special ability that separates her from others and sets her on an arduous journey.

The story is sweet and readable, but, like other Okorafor stories, it left me somewhat unsatisfied.
