Doug Holliday, January 1, 2013 (view all comments by Doug Holliday)
Octavia presented one of the most exciting and realistic sci-fi novels I have ever read. This powerful and up front presentation of slavery in the south demonstrated the horrors and cruelty thrust upon blacks sends a message of truth I had not known. I salute Ms. Butler for her candid and wonderful writing abilities.
Sincerely
Mr. Holliday

This novel is a well-crafted work of art. Butler takes hold of the reader from the first page and never lets go. A consummate storyteller, she creates complex, realistic characters with whom the reader can sympathize and identify. I totally enjoyed the book, and am now building my Octavia Butler library.
