Octavia Butler is African American and has a unique point of view which can only be recognized by being a part of what she is living through, at the time the book was set in 1976 and bringing present day Black Live Matter and George Floyd. She did extensive research for this book and it is apparent when reading the story. This was for me, a unique viewpoint of how a slave lived. Besides being a very believable story, it was a real page turner. Ms Butler has written many amazing books. It is a shame that she did not live longer to write many more. This book took her a long time to write as it was depressing for her. I have a new and more deep understanding of being a slave in the not so distant past.
