Hugo and Nebula Award-winning creator Octavia E. Butler paints a surprising portrait of an all-too-believable close to future. As with Kindred and her different critically-acclaimed novels, Parable of the Sower skillfully combines startling visionary and socially life like ideas. God is change. That’s the central reality of the Earthseed motion, whose unlikely prophet is 18-year-old Lauren Olamina. The younger girl’s diary entries inform the story of her life amid a violent Twenty first-century hell of walled neighborhoods and drug-crazed pyromaniacs – and reveal her evolving Earthseed philosophy. Towards a backdrop of horror emerges a message of hope: if we’re prepared to embrace divine change, we’ll survive to meet our future among the many stars.For her elegant, literate works of science fiction, Octavia E. Butler has been in comparison with Toni Morrison and Ursula Okay. LeGuin. Narrator Lynne Thigpen’s melodious voice will maintain you spellbound all through this compelling parable of recent society.
