Wild Seed by Octavia E. Butler is one of the best books I have read this year. Five stars all the way. A dumb way of putting it is a cross between Roots and X-Men. It is fantastic and yet because of the writing I can picture every scene and all the different body forms that Doro takes while still being the character Doro.
I can never stop reading Octavia E. Butler. I'll try to read her at night but then I find myself, hours later, still reading. I wake up in the morning and can't help myself from picking up the book, abandoned only hours before, to read again. The story of Anyanwu and Doro and their centuries-long ecstatic dance that spans continents and oceans truly is no exception. Each new chapter brings horrors, delights, and reflection on what it means to be both human and alive. There are subtle nods to other literary works that will delight an avid reader. And any person who enjoys Science Fiction will find great satisfaction in the playing with the roots of SciFi Butler does so well.
