Parable of the Sower by Octavia E. Butler Book Summary

A New York Times Notable Book: In 2025, with the world descending into madness and anarchy, one woman begins a fateful journey toward a better future.

“A stunner.” —Flea, musician and actor, TheWall Street Journal
 
Lauren Olamina and her family live in one of the only safe neighborhoods remaining on the outskirts of Los Angeles. Behind the walls of their defended enclave, Lauren’s father, a preacher, and a handful of other citizens try to salvage what remains of a culture that has been destroyed by drugs, disease, war, and chronic water shortages. While her father tries to lead people on the righteous path, Lauren struggles with hyperempathy, a condition that makes her extraordinarily sensitive to the pain of others.
 
When fire destroys their compound, Lauren’s family is killed and she is forced out into a world that is fraught with danger. With a handful of other refugees, Lauren must make her way north to safety, along the way conceiving a revolutionary idea that may mean salvation for all mankind.
 
This ebook features an illustrated biography of Octavia E. Butler including rare images from the author’s estate.

A must read for intellectuals and anyone who wants to understand humanityI'm really at a lost for words, this book the writing, the character development and story felt so real. I was afraid to read at times because the world she write about is shaping into what I see today. Always changing....Score: 5/5

BoringBoring book with no climax. I was reading without paying attention to a lot of it but still didn't miss anything. Gives you something to think about as far as the ideas about God and the future though.Score: 2/5

Mesmerizing!A beautiful story of what hope looks like amongst struggle and hardship. The tale is told by Lauren Olamina as she slowly loses her family but develops her means to survive without losing herself as she is challenged by one trial after the next.
