Ria Bridges Reviews Kabu Kabu by Nnedi Okorafor

Kabu Kabu Verdict: carrot

I’ve talked before about how books of short stories rarely get rated very highly with me, because they often vary in quality and interest, and switching stories often throws me out of my reading groove. I had previously only listed Elizabeth Bear’s Shoggoths in Bloom as a 5-star short story collection. Well, Kabu Kabu has joined those exclusive ranks.

Nnedi Okorafor’s storytelling is constantly engaging, beautiful and evocative, and she’s one of those rare writers who can make you feel like you’re right there in the story without bogging you down in too much detail.
