"Parable of the Sower is the Butlerian odyssey of one woman who is twice as feeling in a world that has become doubly dehumanized. The time is 2025. The place is California, where small walled communities must protect themselves from hordes of desperate scavengers and roaming bands of people addicted to a drug that activates an orgasmic desire to burn, rape, and murder. When one small community is overrun, Lauren Olamina, an 18 year old black woman with the hereditary train of "hyperempathy"--which causes her to feel others' pain as her own--sets off on foot along the dangerous coastal highways, moving north into the unknown"--… (mais)

  20. 13
    Bel Canto de Ann Patchett (the_awesome_opossum)
    the_awesome_opossum: Both novels are about human connections formed in the face of unusual crises. Very competent and well-written, both books had much the same vibe about them

It is uncanny how well Butler seems to have been able to see into today's world. ( )
  Masumi23 | Jun 20, 2021 |
I had a completely different experience reading this the second time around than the first. In all honesty, I didn't really like it much the first time I read it (four years ago)...in fact, it was one of my least favorite of Butler's novels that I'd read. I think mostly because I was looking too closely at it and not broadly enough. Between the jackass we currently have in office and the pandemic raging across the world, along N.K. Jemisin's excellent foreward about her own experiences revisiting the novel, I felt quite a bit more primed to take it all in, and I have found myself hooked. There are a few criticisms that remain--I feel like Lauren is a fairly flat character; I find the Earthseed verses banal and the religion itself not very unique (my bias--this is not an uncommon criticism of many religions for me)--but I am compelled by the interpersonal character dynamics, the eerily recognizable future (that is only four years away at this point), and the plight to survive in such a hostile world. I am also grateful I was able to view the NYUAD screening of Toshi Reagon's opera, which added such a rich layer to the novel. And I am excited to begin Talents for the first time and wonder if it might address some questions I still have about the story. ( )

This classic dystopian novel hits very close to home. It starts in 2024 in a world that has been torn apart by climate change and political discord. It’s terrifying to see how quickly their society devolved into chaos. A small band of survivors tries to backpack up the western coast of California to a safer area in the north. In both excited and terrified to see what happens next in the sequel.

“All that you touch You Change. All that you Change Changes you. The only lasting truth Is Change.”

“The world is full of painful stories. Sometimes it seems as though there aren't any other kind and yet I found myself thinking how beautiful that glint of water was through the trees.” ( )

Lauren Olamina is a Black teenager growing up in a world gone mad. Global warming has made water and food scarce, street drugs have created roving gangs of killers and arsonists, and a far-right, White president has made debt slavery legal. She lives in a walled neighborhood with her family, but walls and guns can protect them for only so long. Lauren believes things will only get worse, and she prepares herself as best she can for a future outside the walls. She is also filling a notebook with her observations. Gradually she comes to see these as a new religion, one where God is change, a non-anthropomorphic god that can be shaped by human design. Her goal is to escape beyond the city and build a new community, one that believes these precepts and is willing to work in order to shape the future.

When written in 1993, the year 2024 was the future, distant enough to be science fiction. But now, in 2021, too much of Butler′s world seems real. Racial tensions, corrupt cops, dwindling water supplies, and non-living wages are here. As N.K. Jemisin says in the foreword, reading the book in the 90s and reading it now are different experiences.

Unlike her other science fiction series, Parable does not rely on sentient beings from other galaxies or mind powers like telepathy to solve the ills of a dystopian world. Instead, Lauren′s Earthseed relies on the skills and determination of regular people to create change.

Prodigy is, at its essence, adaptability and persistent, positive obsession. Without persistence, what remains is an enthusiasm of the moment. Without adaptability, what remains may be channeled into destructive fanaticism. Without positive obsession, there is nothing at all.

[Parable of the Sower] is a powerful novel that is hard to put down once begun. The plot is fast-paced, the characters are vivid, and above all it is well-written, clean and concise. The moment I turned the last page, I began to regret not having the sequel, [Parable of the Talents] on hand to begin immediately. My only quibble is that the character of Lauren is a bit static. She is an exceptional, insightful girl of fifteen when the book opens and an equally exceptional young woman of eighteen when it ends. Few of the struggles of adolescence penetrate her equilibrium. I hesitate to say it, but a little teenage angst wouldn't have gone amiss. Recommended for all. ( )

In author Octavia E. Butler's version of California in the mid-2020s, global warming has spiraled out of control. The relatively fortunate live in heavily-walled areas and pay through the nose for necessities such as water or police protection, while homeless people, drug addicts, and outlaws struggle to survive out in the no-man's-land beyond the walls. Lauren, a Black girl born into this crumbling civilization, tries to prepare for an even bleaker future by creating her own religion, which she calls Earthseed. As she and her ragtag group of friends hike up the coast on their way to Canada, she begins to attract followers.

Dystopian fiction is not my genre, and I had a hard time making it through Parable of the Sower, despite the well-deserved praise this novel has received. In Butler's telling, almost unimaginably horrific events occur on a regular basis. Parallels to slavery are abundant. The only hope is the unsteady light provided by Lauren's self-created religion. I am not a big fan of know-it-all teenagers who are the only ones who can save the world.

Still, someday, I may be curious enough to pick up the sequel. ( )
