The Book of Phoenix

The Book of Phoenix (Who Fears Death) - Nnedi Okorafor

An interesting premise, but I am just not a fan of fantasy. I found the most interesting parts to be those that are dystopic—the company that has created the 7 towers and what they are allowed to do, etc. I would love to read more about these ideas. But the slipping? Fantasy, meh.

I read this late for a group read (had to wait through a library queue to get it), so I am looking forward to reading the thread now. I am curious how Seven is interpreted (angel? Christ figure?).

I probably won't read the rest of this series, but those who enjoy fantasy should give it a try.
