"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"--… (mehr)

It's really hard to describe why I enjoyed this book so much. I'm very sure there are parts of this book that I do not fully understand. There is a large religious element in this book and there are probably some things that completely flew past me because I wasn't raised in a religious household. However, even though I know I didn't understand everything about this, I still really liked it. I think that's a sign of a very good book.

This book definitely gives you a lot to sink your teeth into. Butler does such a good job building the world and making you understand the role that environment had on shaping all the characters. This is a violent world but never so unrealistic that you can't see how our world might turn into something like this. Maybe this is especially true right now as we are living through an economic crisis caused by a pandemic. There are many mentions of rape and assault in this book so if that is something that will upset you, make sure you understand that going in.

I thought Lauren as a main character was really well done. This book covers several years and I didn't have a hard time keeping track of what age she was at different points because she does act much older than she is. But, that is just part of her character and I thought it was well done. This is very much Lauren's story. It's written as her journal entries as she develops this new religion. However, that does not mean that the others are just left to the wayside. I thought all the characters in this book were well written and had compelling backstories that all added to the world building as well.

I would definitely encourage people to read this. There are so many interesting elements that I haven't even addressed here. The way Butler uses fiction to discuss class, race, gender, and environmental changes is impeccable in my opinion and I think everyone can get something out of this book.

Imagine a dystopian novel about fleeing the collapse of society and trying to build a new community written from the viewpoint of a brilliant womanist. Talk about a book that is highly relevant for today1 ( )
  Aldon.Hynes | Sep 14, 2021 |
A book about survival during/after societal collapse. With most of the US regressing to dustbowl-like conditions after a global economic crash, an African-American woman attempts to kickstart a different kind of a society - with an ambitious end goal - among the ruins. An entertaining read for any collapsenik who would to like to view collapse from a different perspective. ( )

Summer 2019 (Sarah's Book Club July);

I truly, truly, truly wanted to like this book so much more than I ended up liking it.

Parable of the Sower has been on my dystopic-classics to read list for many year because of its being so formidable and early on in the open doors of the genre, but I found the novel itself to be deeply plodding, with constant feeling like it was leading to something, but on the last page where I felt the story should finally begin, instead the story ended (and I thought, perhaps, that meant Parable was more prologue and Talents was most the story of what happened, but then I was disappointed to find out that one skipped many years before taking place).

I found this book to be much like Cormac McCarthy's The Road where the book is the journey, but decidedly not the destination. Like the previous (though published later) you are never truly given the insiting event which turns the country dystopian/post-apocalyptic. I was surprised and pleased to see that this one was a big contender for talking about Climate Change even though it's decades before now. I wish there had been more on how exactly the world had fallen apart, but not having it, I suppose, did leave the reader more in the point-of-view of a character who was still grappling with their own naivete and ignorance about the world around them (and the winnowing knowledge of a community behind walls, losing even the small ability to get reports from the outside world with the loss of the radios and society, etc).

I did like that the book narrative was written in the form of a journal, both with entries for The Book of the Earthseed and the ongoing narrative of what was happening in the world around the character, with the constancy of entries written later, because the world at large gave you no time to sit and write every single night.

I'm still at a loss for how the book connects to the stars, as the tenants of this new religion continue to point toward as its final goal. I find I've left this book with more frowns and questions and wishes, especially given how much has become of the dystopian genre since this time. Alas.

Nicely written, earnest, unremarkable although worthy near-future dystopian genre novel. ( )

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. -- EARTHSEED: THE BOOKS OF THE LIVING by Lauren Oya Olamina
