The slogans used by the demagogic leader in this book are eerily reminiscent to the dehumanizing language our president uses today. Olamina finds her little community of acorn demonized to awful consequences. Exploration of identity, religion, and change told through olamina, her brother, and her daughter. I didn‘t like this as much as parable of the sower and will admit to not actually liking the earthseed verses. Still a pick.
