This first Earthseed novel by ground-breaking writer Octavia E. Butler feel like a prophetic nod to our current world. If you were glued to The Handmaid's Tale, you'll love this beautiful new edition of a seminal American classic.

'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. This is what makes Parable of the Sower even more impressive than it was when first published' Gloria Steinem

We are coming apart. We're a rope, breaking, a single strand at a time.

America is a place of chaos, where violence rules and only the rich and powerful are safe. Lauren Olamina, a young woman with the extraordinary power to feel the pain of others as her own, records everything she sees of this broken world in her journal.

Then, one terrible night, everything alters beyond recognition, and Lauren must make her voice heard for the sake of those she loves.

Soon, her vision becomes reality and her dreams of a better way to live gain the power to change humanity forever.

All that you touch,
You Change.
All that you Change,
Changes you.

'A masterpiece by a matchless artist. Butler is simply sublime'

'Reading these books will change your life'

'A finely crafted work, rife with emotional power, horrifying in its believability, with a message that cannot be ignored'

Recenzii de la cititorii Books Express

Monica Saulea a dat nota:

O carte despre care vei auzi adesea, fiindcă este la fel de profundă, originală și reală precum "1984" a lui George Orwell sau "Fahrenheit 451" a lui Ray Bradbury. Deși spune o poveste tristă ce se desfășoară într-o lume distopică, atitudinea triumfătoare a personajului principal și valorile personale pe care se bazează pot fi transferate, cu ușurință, în timpurile actuale. O capodoperă ce merită redescoperită la fiecare citire, cu o frumusețe ce adesea poate fi găsită doar în cele mai tragice momente. Iar cartea asta clar nu duce lipsă de momente tragice! :) O recomand cu mare drag tuturor celor care caută "altceva" în experiența lor narativă.
