    A possible future, foretold

    This is a wonderful and prophetic look at a possible direction that society can lead to. I am also happy that a Character of African decent can be portrayed with such depth and intelligence. This sequel of Parable of the Sower is a must read for all people.

    Brilliant, thought-provoking

    This book was the most brilliant piece of writing I have ever read. It took me 2 months to read it because I had to put it down every few pages just to mentally digest some of the ideas she puts forth.

    Terrifyingly Real

    This book is one of my all time favorites. So much of it can be seen in our current reality that this could actually happen. An exceptional read.
