What an awesome book this is! My dad has been telling me for 10+ years how great Octavia Butler is but I did not heed his words. I was like, "yeah, whatever"--just because he is a doctor of English doesn't change the fact that he is my dad, you know? But this time the joke was on me.
Anyway, super good. Waiting for the hold I have on the sequel at the library to come in... Also I really enjoyed the "about the author."
