From the Illustrated Biography
Octavia E. Butler at age thirteen
Butler began writing the year before when a science fiction film—the cult favorite Devil Girl from Mars—inspired her to create something of her own.

Octavia E. Butler's legacy
When Butler passed away in 2006, the New York Times eulogized her as a world-renowned author whose science fiction explored 'far-reaching issues of race, sex, power and, ultimately, what it means to be human.'
“Butler’s narrative skills are impressive.” —TheNew York Times on Parable of the Talents
Praise for Octavia E. Butler
“A master storyteller, Butler casts an unflinching eye on racism, sexism, poverty, and ignorance and lets the reader see the terror and beauty of human nature.” —The Washington Post Book World

That aside, I thought the idea of Earthseed was interesting. I wanted to find out what happened to Lauren and whether she survived.
I wish greater care had been taken in the editing of the book. Perhaps it was just the Kindle version I was reading, I found the amount of typos distracting.
Butler tells a story set in the near future. This is a future which has (fortunately for those of us who would have to live in it) not yet come to pass. It is a future which easily could come to pass just as Butler has predicted. As always, her characters were strong yet vulnerable. The backdrop is a realistic world with more problems than solutions.
I cannot express how much I enjoyed this book. The story moved at the right pace throughout. The second book is told through a series of flashbacks and journal excerpts of the main characters each of which moves the story forward.
All in all, maybe it is too soon to process exactly what I liked so much, but I can emphatically and unreservedly recommend this series.

Na minha opinião, A Parábola dos Talentos, que é muitas vezes comparado com O Conto da Aia, consegue abordar a temática do conservadorismo religioso de forma muito mais completa e profunda.
