Parable of the Sower
Parable of the Sower | Octavia E. Butler
In 2025, with the world descending into madness and anarchy, one woman begins a fateful journey toward a better future 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.

This is my first ever Butler! It was a lot more YA than I was expecting but I did enjoy the world building. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Is the sequel any good? What‘s your favorite Butler novel that I should pick up? I‘m very willing to read more of her work that isn‘t as YA. Thanks for any suggestions!

vivastory The only Butler I've read (& loved) is 2w
Soscha I had to DNF this years ago, not because I didn‘t like it, but it was affecting me too intensely. Beautifully written though. I‘ve been meaning to steel myself and go back to it at some point. 2w
collegecatlady @vivastory I‘ll definitely have to try that one! 2w
collegecatlady @Soscha It is a very visceral novel. I love horror and dystopia though so the gore was a great part of this for me! 2w

Beautifully written, intense, terrifying, relevant. John Green said it pairs well with 1984 and the Handmaid‘s Tale and I agree. Being a West Coaster, this hit home even more. Octavia Butler was a master storyteller.

1. It‘s so hot out that it made me think of this one Dehydration, people!
2. Cheetos may literally be my favorite food and I love them in all their forms.Most recently I ate jalapeño ones, which are crunchy.
3. Sunset. If I see sunrise, it‘s because I stayed up.
4. Books, jewelry, clothes, kitchen appliances
5. I liked all of them but fourth when I had a true monster of a teacher who I still talk about to my therapist.

Octavia Butler has long been on my list of Favorite Authors I Haven‘t Actually Read Yet. 😜 This, gladly, didn‘t disappoint! It‘s a brutal story, but the terrific writing and characters make the rough reading journey worthwhile. I switched between this paperback and a spellbinding audio version narrated by the phenomenal Lynne Thigpen. ❤️ I‘ll definitely read more of this series, and more Butler beyond.

I started this today. While the writing was captivating and the story is terrifyingly real for dystopian science fiction, something happens on page 44 which I‘ll put in a spoiler comment, and I‘m out. It‘s my line in the sand. The rest of the story was already making me uncomfortable and this was the last straw.

DGRachel A dog is shot and not instantly killed. I get why they shot the dog, but the animal suffers and I cannot cope with that. When added to all the nonchalant comments about rape and murder, it‘s just too much for me to deal with right now. I need happy. 3mo
VioletBramble I loved this book but, it‘s definitely not a happy book. It left me thinking about my survival plan if this scenario should actually occur. I looked up how to make bread out of acorns. I worry a lot in the current political climate in the US that these things in the book may come true. It‘s probably best that you don‘t read it right now. 3mo
Aimeesue @VioletBramble The acorn bread! I read this a decade ago, at least, and I remember that too, vividly. And I'm planting my yard with edible perennials; I joke that it's in case of zombie apocalypse, but political unrest is a disturbingly possible scenario too. Pro tip: you can eat hostas! 😁 3mo

I haven't read Kindred yet but when ever I think about Octavia Butler, I remember the Parable books. The thing that's fascinating is how it was written a while ago, and yet seems to be almost talking about today. In some aspects, I found that frightening! Make America great again is in this book!!

I am struggling to get through this book. While on one hand I am interested in what happens to the main character, I think it‘s hitting too close to home - the bleak future of a parched Southern California with (more) exaggerated class divisions leading to rampant violence seems an all too real and not too distant possibility. The extreme violence and rape she describes are also getting to me. Anyone else have a similar experience with this book?

Toniyesss I have wanted to read Octavia Butler for some time, and I still feel invested in finding out what happens to Lauren, but thinking I may need to table this for a while. 4mo
BooksForEmpathy I have only read one (Kindred) by her and I remember it being really heavy. It dealt with slavery, and while the story was captivating on many levels, for someone who feels deeply the feelings of others, it can be intense! Be good to yourself!! 4mo
Toniyesss @BooksForEmpathy Yeah thanks. I hate not finishing books, especially this one because it‘s not bad, it‘s just too intense right now. Trying to let myself be okay with that 4mo

My reading life has taken a hit over the past weeks, but I finally was able to spend some time on me. This book story centers around a unique protagonist, Lauren Olamina. Although only a teenager, she sees the coming demise of her world clearer than any adult and begins to prepare for an uncertain, dangerous future in an America that has collapsed into chaos. The storytelling is compelling and disturbing. I highly recommend this.

To one of the greatest, most influential sci-fi writers of all time. Octavia Butler, you have touched me with your novels - each character unique and memorable as the last. Each story incredibly woven, exploring difficult human (and non-human) relationships and uncomfortable topics like race, power, and gender... I'm so grateful for your strength and creativity. #restinpower #internationalwomensday

SleepyDragon @FreeReadAndWrite It freaked me out because it seems like an incredibly plausible near future and I was familiar enough the Southern California setting for it to hit very close to home. It was so realistic and plausible that I felt it could be our reality in 10-15 years.

I‘d never really ‘got‘ distopian fiction before, I didn‘t get much from 1984, Fahrenheit 451 or brave new world, but I finally feel I understand why distopias can be important. This was probably the best sci fi ive ever read. A lot of them just feel like shocking thought experiments with no purpose but this inspired me and taught me a lot. Earthseed was breathtaking as an idea and the bleakness felt important to me rather than just ‘I‘m so edgy‘

"All that you touch / You change. // All that you Change / Changes you. // The only lasting truth / Is Change. // God is Change." •••• I feel a little guilty choosing this as our first book club reading, as it is brilliant and timely (still) but full of horrible things happening to the most vulnerable of society, specifically children. But there's no lie here. That's the power and challenge of Octavia Butler's writing.

Bleak but ultimately hopeful, I can see why Octavia E. Butler has been long revered in science fiction circles. Reading this and watching The Bird Box in the same weekend might not be recommended.

This book is "required reading" for those that love dystopian fiction. I'm jumping right into the sequel because I need to know what happens next for the inspiring central character. ?

My first by Octavia Butler and I really, thoroughly enjoyed it. I loved the realness to this dystopian novel. It didn't feel magical or like you would want to live in this disaster. There were parts that were hard to read but it was so spot on to what would probably realistically happen if an apocalyptic situation were to occur in our society. I enjoyed the large cast of characters and the main protagonist Lauren's strength was admirable. ⭐⭐⭐⭐

How about a scary future of #California , or America (or the world)? Where the government has collapsed, robbery and rape are rampant, the average middle class live in walled communities, the wealthy control the necessities like water and electricity, and firefighters respond when they‘re paid? 😱😰This is a fantastic dystopian read and I recommend, even if you rarely read the genre.
