Book Review: Remote Control by Nnedi Okorafor (Five Stars)
Her parents never ever would have left her. She’d had the best parents in the world. Now, in her fourteenth year on earth, if there was one rule she lived by it was the fact that Stories were soothsayers, truth-tellers and liars.
Pleasing mix of near-future science fiction and fantasy. Okorafor blends the here and now, with the there and then, adding a touch of future shock. She has the touch.
She considered leaving in the dead of night, but instead lay in that comfortable soft blue bed and pushed her face to the sheet and let her tears run. For hours. Because of the scent of coffee she remembered that she wanted her father. And he was dead. Because she’d killed him.
Love the cover art.
Put this one on my list. I’ve heard the name. Thanks for a great review!
