All of humanity must share the world with uncanny, unimaginable alien creatures after war destroys Earth, in an omnibus edition containing three class science fiction novels--Dawn, Adulthood Rites, and Imago. The acclaimed trilogy that comprises Lilith's Brood is multiple Hugo and Nebula award-winner Octavia E. Butler at her best. Presented for the first time in one volume, with an introduction by Joan Slonczewski, Ph. D., Lilith's Brood is a profoundly evocative, sensual--and disturbing--epic of human transformation. Lilith Lyapo is in the Andes, mourning the death of her family, when war destroys Earth. Centuries later, she is resurrected, by miraculously powerful unearthly beings, the Oankali. Driven by an irresistible need to heal others, the Oankali are rescuing our dying planet by merging genetically with mankind. But Lilith and all humanity must now share the world with uncanny, unimaginably alien creatures: Their own children. This is their story.… (mais)

I can't come up with a way to rate this one. All I can seem to say about Dawn is what it wasn't. I could hardly stand to read it towards the end as the consent... stuff... got worse and worse, but it was interesting and I did finish it. It was not incorrect, and not irrelevant, and not ill-conceived. I didn't like it. I don't think it was badly written. I don't not recommend it, but I don't recommend it either.

Ok, actually one thing I can say about it: Really Alien Aliens. Like, totally fucking fantastic aliens and alien culture and alien biology. Very few people are even decent at writing really alien cultures; Octavia Butler blows them all out of the solar system.

Most of what I'm struggling with is whether the ending was effective---which also depends on what was the point Butler was trying to make. (spoiler-cutting vague talk about the direction of the narrative that doesn't reference any specific plot points.) Lilith accepts things because she has no choice, and she tries to find a way to survive within them, and I'm not judging that at all---it's... real, human. But it's hard to reach the end without losing your grip on her struggle to justify things, and when you lose that you lose the ability to identify/empathize with her, and she sort of becomes a "statistic." And if she becomes a statistic, the point of the book goes from "what does it mean to be human" and "how do you survive a situation so completely out of your control" to "look what awful things I can come up with to do to my characters."

A very well written book, and a good story, but I'm only giving it 2 stars because of how deeply uncomfortable it made me. The mating rituals and reproductive strategies of these aliens are basically rape, and the humans don't really have any choice. ( )

Profoundly strange. I read this in college 20 years ago (for pleasure, not assigned), and the ideas have stuck with me since, which I think makes it worth something. I liked a phrase that one of the other reviewers noted, that it's 'non-judgemental'. It gives you a lot of crazy ideas and just - lets you think about them, which I feel is much more powerful than having an agenda. ( )

Ms. Butler has many unkind things to say about humankind in this series and I don't blame her. They way several people reacted and continued to react throughout I could understand and at the same time be frustrated by their actions. ( )

I discovered this trilogy in my mother's bookcase and went into it with no expectations other than that if my mom had bought it, she must have really liked the author's work. This is an incredible work. I don't know what genres to put it in. It's clearly a piece of science fiction, but like all the best science fiction, plumbs the depths of core philosophical questions: what does it mean to be human? Is it important to be a distinct species? what does it mean to love another being? how do we understand the tangle of physical desire and love? what are we willing to give up to be "us" and is it really worth it. I could go on and on. I highly recommend this book for the ideas and for the compelling, powerful writing. I will be reading other works by this authors. ( )

Das Verhalten der Menschen untereinander ist trotz der Erfahrung des Atomkrieges nach wie vor von äußerster Aggressivität geprägt. Schuld daran sind die menschlichen Gene, wie die Fremden als perfekte biologische Gentechniker wissen. Die Menschen können einfach gar nicht anders als fremdenfeindlich sein und sich selbst vernichten. Hierin liegt die bedenklich Botschaft des Buches: Wir sind nicht viel mehr als Marionetten unserer Gene, die für unser gesamtes Sozialverhalten verantwortlich sind.

Nach Ende des ersten Bandes tritt Lilith, die bisherige Protagonistin, an den Rand des Geschehens, erlahmt die Handlung und hat sich die Problematik erschöpft. Man kann das Buch also getrost nach 300 Seiten zuklappen, oder, wenn man denn will, besser gleich die Einzelausgabe des ersten Teiles zur Hand nehmen.
