    One thought on “Laguna”

    1. this is a science fiction novel in which aliens descend upon lagos i have read plenty of african fiction, but this is the first time extraterrestrial life has ever been a part of the story fortunately for sci fi noob me, the aliens are not metallic chitinous types toting advanced weaponry, and the story has of a folktale feel to it than anything traditionally spaceshippy since folktales frequently make their way into african fiction, or any other culture s fiction where there is an emphasis up [...]

    2. Kurt Vonnegut had commented that when his early writing was given the label of science fiction, many critics and readers stopped taking his work seriously He was lumped into the pulpy but fun drivel of the 50s and 60s.I never understood this because I never considered his writing science fiction But even if I had, I would have taken it seriously, at least as serious as I can when I m laughing out loud and being instructed by his biting but playful wit.And so I come to Nnedi Okorafor s 2014 novel [...]

    3. We are change, Ayodele calmly responded The sentiments were already there I know nothing about those other things When I was young, I read every fantasy like book I could lay hands on Dragons, fairy tales, books about witches, Greek myths, folk tales, origin stories, just so tales, you name it if it wasn t real, I read it By far my least favorite were the parables, particularly Aesop s Fables The overt messaging and the general lack of a plot quickly led to waning interest Lagoon doesn t seem to [...]

    4. There were aliens in the ocean, and they were going to come out soon How I love when I read a science fiction novel and it is full of elements I am not expecting I had really enjoyed an earlier novel by Nnedi Okorafor, Who Fears Death, which I think I was first prompted to read when it was on the shortlist for the Nebula Award in 2010 That year, it was my favorite novel in that category and I was surprised not to see it listed on my best books of the year In retrospect I d go back and add it to [...]

    5. Having been a fanboy of Anansi in the past, I loved seeing Anansi the storyteller being our narrator here.As a SF, it was a fairly traditional first contact story dovetailing into a christ image into a deeper story about the building of a world and its stories Confused I m just referring to bare bones Beyond that, I was enraptured in the immersion of Nigeria It was spicy and exciting to me, even though I ve read some good African stories in the past, I can rank this up there with them all, and f [...]

    6. Tthis is not your average first contact story The aliens are just the beginning This is a blending of science fiction and fantasy and fairy tales and mythology and urban legends and media reporting and every other way that we tell stories If you ve ever read Angela Carter especially Nights at the Circus then imagine that but updated, moved to Nigeria, and with aliens It s uncanny and unsettling and makes you want to know about Nigeria and Lagos and the rich world of stories that you might not b [...]

    7. Dear White People who read this book and thought it was awesome, This is not Lagos.This has been an appalling waste of time and the only reason I finished was so that this review could be written.Now, maybe, just maybe this book would have received a 2 3star from me had it contained no dialogue whatsoever.But it did.Terrible dialogue.Terrible dialogue masquerading as pidgin English.Adding o at the end of a sentence does not make it pidgin It makes your characters sound retarded Na wao every now [...]

    8. Have you ever felt guilty for disliking a book While I was slugging through the first third of Lagoon, I legitimately felt bad for how much I hated it I mean, I really should in theory be supporting female scifi writers But like The Girl in the Road I could barely bring myself to finish this.The plot is pretty simple aliens arrive in Nigeria That s pretty much it Aliens arrive, they pick 3 special people to work with their alien ambassador who wants to see the president The entire book is spent [...]

    9. Everybody wants to leave Lagos But nobody goes, she said Lagos is in the blood We run back to Lagos the moment we step out, even though we may have vowed never to come back Lagos is Lagos No city like it Lagos is sweet.The story opens in the waters of Lagos, from the perspective of one of the sea creatures as an object crashes into the sea I was drawn to the sea creature aspect of this story so it immediately sucked me in.There were aliens in the ocean, and they were going to come out soon.From [...]

    10. I really, really wanted to like this it sounded so promising, and there was so much potential all the way through, I just couldn t deal with the awkward writing and weird pacing Parts of this book were beautifully written the prologue, for example, hinted at something fantastic to come, but for some reason most of the book read like a high school english class fan fiction The plot and setting combination was original and different from a typical sci fi, and it s so great to read sci fi that isn [...]

    11. H.G Well s War of the Worlds meets Arthur C Clarke s Childhood s End, all taking place in modern Nigeria.Speaking as someone who reads a fair bit of science fiction, Lagoon felt refreshingly original Not that the theme of aliens coming to Earth is a new one it s actually very common What was so welcome was that said aliens did not land in North America, but in Lagos harbour in Nigeria Just that tweak, and the story becomes so much interesting.Okorafor s familiarity with Nigeria is what makes th [...]

    12. I really wish I could say that I loved this book.It started out so well A mysterious sonic boom in Lagos, Nigeria A rushing wave that swallows three strangers brought together by fear An alien presence that has arrived upon the shore I was hooked from the first page But all too soon, my enthusiasm had disintegrated.I can t decide if the core of my issues with the book was the plot or the characters Okorafor set up a diverse cast I particularly appreciated the subplot involving Black Nexus, a LGB [...]

    13. Two Okorafor novels in 2015 we must have been good to deserve this Lagoon is about humanity s first contact with alien life Once word gets out that aliens are on Earth, everyone is trying to be the first to get their message out to the world, while the government decides if it should just wipe the visitors out It s up to a rapper, a soldier and a biologist to keep both these things in check This is wonderful fun, and about how I envision an alien visitation going.Listen in to our weekly All The [...]

    14. 3.5 stars but not rounded up, as the book never quite coalesced for me I think there were just too many things going on characters with superpowers Aliens Nigerian folk tales Commentary on Lagos politics and life Eco warriors And so on But it turned out I enjoyed the last third of the book quite a bit, and I always enjoyed the characters.

    15. We are technologyLagoon concerns the arrival of shapeshifting marine water loving aliens in the waters of Lagos It s made clear that the extraterrestrials deliberately selected Nigeria to enter the world they want to share with humans, though the exact reasons for this are at least partly left to the imagination It s also very clear that the newcomers are not colonists they are immigrants, and although from their position of power they insist on being allowed to remain, they declare and enact th [...]

    16. I enjoyed a number of things about this first contact novel Multiple perspectives don t always work for me, but here they added to the feeling that the city of Lagos is the main character The overlapping structure, in which we see the same event from multiple viewpoints, was very effective I loved being in the perspective of a swordfish, a bat, a road, a spider storyteller The monsters are great I liked that Okorafor let characters speak pidgin English when that was accurate to the characters, u [...]

    17. This book is hard to describe It s an alien invasion novel, sure But the world being invaded is Lagos, a city of 8 million people in Nigeria, which is a different sort of setting for this type of story And this author s conception of it is steeped in something akin to a cross between magic realism and a superhero story.Three individuals, a Nigerian marine biologist and mother, a Nigerian soldier and a Ghanian music star meet at the same time as the first huge sonic boom from the alien space craf [...]

    18. Three strangers on a beach a marine biologist, a famous rapper and a soldier Each has their own troubles but their world is about to change A sonic boom hits the surface of the lagoon in Lagos and a wave swallows them up.The narrative follows a collection of Nigerians in the wake of a life changing event Told mostly in third person, it occasionally veers into first person accounts from otherwise unknown characters We hear the thoughts of the poorest to the most privileged, painting a picture of [...]

    19. Received to review via BookbridgrI ve been meaning to pick Lagoon up next for far too long, so hurrah, finally I have done so I picked it up partway through New Year s Eve, in fact, and finished it in one go it s a very lively, dynamic book, with various different points of view including a swordfish who turns herself into a monster, the better to sabotage oil pipes on the sea bed It makes sense in context, I promise There s a whole bunch of different people, people speaking Pidgin, LGBT people, [...]

    20. Fascinating if flawed Bursting with invention and vividly written, with exuberant language fun I found the story itself a bit inconclusive, as I did Binti, and I wonder if that s the author not having got a grip on her plotting or me not getting what she s actually up to, because in both cases I felt the book was interested in the journey than the ending Maybe that s the point, that any series of events are part of a flow and the beginning and end points are always going to be arbitrary Or not [...]

    21. I strongly disliked the narration on the audiobook I wasn t crazy about the story but I think it would have been okay at least I m torn between one and two stars because it irritated the hell out of me but I think that was the audio

    22. FULL REVIEW ON MY BLOG, TOTAL INABILITY TO CONNECTIt s certainly a relevant point to say that the SFF genre, as a whole, has a need for some diversity We have no problem believing, accepting, and creating fanciful alternative worlds, continents, planets, the works however, we always seem to create these in an caucasian centric, Western style world Sure, Westeros, Elan, or any of the other magical worlds we know and love are interesting, unique, even extremely creative But at the end of the day, [...]

    23. I was thrilled to find a science fiction with some fantasy book about a first contact in Africa featuring, gasp, actual black African characters About damn time, said someone well, me Living in a western culture, of course most of what has been available for me to read has a western cultural bias but since it s the 21st century now publishers really need to start broadening their author lists English is commonly spoken in many non western countries well done, Hodder Stoughton Ok, end publishing [...]

    24. In LAGOON, Nnedi Okorafor poses the question what if first contact with aliens took place not in New York, London, or Tokyo, but the beach city of Lagos, Nigeria The answer is something that is both utterly human and uniquely African In addition to stunning detail of both city and marine life, Okorafor fills this novel with a dozen points of view, but rather than confusing the narrative, those sections allow the reader to experience all sides of the encounter that leads to some of Nigeria s dark [...]

    25. More than just a First Contact story, Okorafor brings to life segments of Nigerian life, from the profiteering preacher to the LGBTQs, the Nigerian president to 419 student scammers, the American tourists to the crazy church lady Hinging on a conflicted Ph.D a disenchanted soldier, and a famous rapper, but powered by a Monster Highway and a story weaving Spider, the tale bogs down in the middle when it feels like it should end, but revives itself with new tongue in cheek energy that lampoons the [...]

    26. Meine MeinungAuf dieses Buch bin ich durch die begeisterte Rezension bei Astis Hexenwerk aufmerksam geworden Sie hat so davon geschw rmt, dass ich es mir nochmal n her ansschauen musste und das Cover finde ich ja mal richtig genial Aber auch die Geschichte dahinter klingt interessant, denn die Au erirdischen sind hier alles andere, was wir aus den blichen Schemas kennen Der Schreibstil war f r mich extrem ungewohnt Sehr kurz und b ndig, manchmal wirkte es auch etwas zerstreut, aber daf r sehr de [...]

    27. Nnedi Okorafor s Lagoon is a satire first, and a science fiction story second I did not think the novel exciting, different or amazing, but I thought it was darkly funny However, it is a space alien invasion story without much of a resolution or purpose, so for me, it was kind of a cultural Lonely Planet travelogue with ironic humor about one s family and neighbors included Aliens who can form themselves into any shape of life they encounter have been living under the ocean offshore of Lagos One [...]

    28. Lagoon is a richly evocative, vivid, and exciting novel The plot can be summarised simply aliens land next to Lagos and chaos ensues I really enjoyed the sense of uncontrolled, unexpected happenings, which was evoked by a wide variety of points of view Narrating events in this fragmented way worked really well for a story of mayhem and upheaval As one character puts it, And if there is one city that rhymes with chaos , it is Lagos The city itself is the main character, or rather than one charac [...]

    29. Am interesting enough read in how it shows a slice of culture in Lagos, highlighting the mixing of Religions, the corruption and fraud alongside people tying to do their best Some interesting bits on languages and the various tribes The story however was only so so never being interesting enough to really draw you in The main characters were a little boring and remained fairly underdeveloped Some of the background characters sounded much interesting but were only fleeting glimpses in the plot T [...]
