Parable of the Sower

'“The best book I’ve read in . . . years.” —John Green, author of The Fault in Our Stars   “If there is one thing scarier than a dystopian novel about the future, it’s one written in the past that has already begun to come true.” —Gloria Steinem   “Gripping. . . . Poignant. . . . Succeeds on multiple levels.” —The New York Times Book Review   “A real gut-wrencher. . . . What makes Butler’s fiction compelling is that it is as crisply detailed as journalism.” —The Washington Post Book World   “What ‘cyberpunk’ author William Gibson does for young, disaffected white fans of high tech and low life, Octavia Estelle Butler does for people of color. She gives us a future.” —Vibe   “Butler tells her story with unusual warmth, sensitivity, honesty and grace; though science fiction readers will recognize this future Earth, Lauren Olamina and her vision make this novel stand out like a tree amid saplings.” —Publishers Weekly   “Young adults may see the similarity between Lauren’s world and the nightly TV-news coverage of current war-torn nations. They should appreciate this tender coming-of-age story and/or the glimpse into a future they can work to prevent.” —School Library Journal   “[Butler] infuses this tale with an allegorical quality that is part meditation, part warning. Simple, direct, and deeply felt.” —Library Journal'
