    mobi Ð Kindred by Octavia E Butler · Paperbackread á octavia e butler Kindred by Octavia E. Butl “The ease Us the children I never realized how easily people could be trained to accept slavery” Butler is an author that constantly pops up on Best sci fi and Must Read African American authors lists and I can finally see why This book may be my first by her but it won't be my last Kindred is a fascinating horrific journey through a dark time in American history combining eye opening historical research with time travelI suppose some modern readers will want to compare this story to Outlander and there are some similarities a woman trying to survive in the past lots of blood soaked history and horror the harsh realities of being who you are in that time but not only did this book come first but it is far distressing tied in with historical truth and way about surviving than it is about lusty scenes with a kilted hot dudeIt's a really important what if book about race What if a modern black woman suddenly found herself transported 150 years into the pa

ButlOctavia Butler is an amazing writer If you enjoy reading SFF or even an interest in speculative fiction you would like her workKindred first published in 1979 would become her most best selling novelThis is also a painful book to read because of its graphic depiction of slavery and Butler wastes no time in demonizing what was demonic Describing the slave life from the perspective of a time travelling modern woman Butler’s strong narrative prose is in high form for a low burden – to illustrate to contemporary readers the horrors of slavery and in this context to draw a comparis

    mobi Ð Kindred by Octavia E Butler · Paperbackread á octavia e butler Kindred by Octavia E. ButlDNF at 50% with some skipping What came first the egg or the chicken? What came first the badly written book or the reading slump? Hard uestions to answer but one thing is certain It definitely did not help forcing me to reach 50% of this book I only did it because of my rating rule and because I wanted to bitch about it So here it is again the time for an unpopular opinion I though this book to be TERRIBLE I don’t even know with what to start I understand it is written by a woman of color

ButlOctavia Butler amazes me She writes science fiction that is full of complicated ideas about race and sexuality that are completely readable I’ll innocently start reading thinking only to get a solid start on the book and suddenly discover I’m halfway through the story That isn’t to imply she’s a light weight however; her works are emotionally and ethica

ButlI had no idea what Kindred is about prior to reading it I previously read Octavia Butler's Wild Seed and thought it was marvelous and Kindred seems to be her most popular work judging by Goodreads ratings So buying a copy of Kindred without knowing anything about it was a no brainer I even deliberately avoided looking at the book's synopsis before hand I just wanted to get to know the book as I read on I hoped for a pleasant surprise which I did get This is only the second Octavia Butler book I have read and I already worship herKindred is about Dana an African American woman who finds herself time travelling involuntarily to Maryland in the early nineteenth century It is not explained how or why this happen to her the mechanic of it is en
