Beschreibung

"Gripping ... poignant ... succeeds on multiple levels."
—The New York Times Book Review

"Literate ... thoughtful. And a real gut-wrencher."
—Washington Post Book World

"A powerful story of hope and faith in the midst of urban violence and decay ... Excellent science fiction and a parable of modern society." 
—Denver Post

"A prophetic odyssey." 
—Essence

"Simple, direct, and deeply felt." 
—Library Journal

"Artfully conceived and elegantly written." 
—Cleveland Plain Dealer

"There isn't a page in this vivid and frightening story that fails to grip the reader." 
—San Jose Mercury News

A writer who darkly imagined the future we have destined for ourselves in book after book, and also one who has shown us the way toward improving on that dismal fate, OCTAVIA E. BUTLER (1947–2006) is recognized as among the bravest and smartest of contemporary fiction writers. A 1995 MacArthur Award winner, Butler transcended the science fiction category even as she was awarded that community’s top prizes, the Nebula and Hugo Awards. She reached readers of all ages, all races, and all religious and sexual persuasions. For years the only African-American woman writing science fiction, Butler has encouraged many others to follow in her path.

Intriguing

After reading "Kindred" by Octavia Spencer, which I loved, I ordered this novel by the same author. The book is quite intriguing, suspenseful and manages to tell a story in a - by now - familiar setting from a fresh and different perspective. I'm not fond of the ending, but overall, I really liked reading it.
