    Kindred PDF ç Paperback kindred book, Kindred PDFAfter reading Parable of the Sower I had to go right out and buy Butler’s most famous novel Kindred I was not disappointed It is amazing that this book was written in 1976 and feels just as fresh and timely in 2016 Dana a young African American woman who has just started a career as a writer in California is suddenly and inexplicably yanked back in time to Maryland in 1815 where she must save a white boy named Rufus from drowningThis becomes only the first of many time traveling episodes for Dana She uickly realizes that Rufus is one of her own ancestors mentioned in the family Bible Somehow they are connected across time because they are kindred To assure her own future Dana must keep Rufus alive until he has children who will some day be Dana’s family line Unfortunately Rufus gets in a lot of troubleOnly moments pass in the modern world each time Dana is called away but months or even years pass in the world of 1815 Dana watches Rufus g

    Kindred PDF ç Paperback kindred book, Kindred PDF “The ease Us the children I never realized how easily people could be trained to accept slavery” Butler is an author that constantly pops up on Best sci fi and Must Read African American authors lists and I can finally see why This book may be my first by her but it won't be my last Kindred is a fascinating horrific journey through a dark time in American history combining eye opening historical research with time travelI suppose some modern readers will want to compare this story to Outlander and there are some similarities a woman trying to survive in the past lots of blood soaked history and horror the harsh realities of being who you are in that time but not only did this book come first but it is far distressing tied in with historical truth and way about surviving than it is about lusty scenes with a kilted hot dudeIt's a really important what if b

    Kindred PDF ç Paperback kindred book, Kindred PDFOctavia Butler is an amazing writer If you enjoy reading SFF or even an interest in speculative fiction you would like her workKindred first published in 1979 would become her most best selling novelThis is also a painful book to read because of its graphic depiction of slavery and Butler wastes no time in demonizing what was demonic Describing the slave life from the perspective of a time travelling modern woman Butler’s strong narrative prose is in high form for a low burden – to illustrate to contemporary readers the horrors of slavery and in this context to draw a comparison with life of our time making the transition to the early 1800s all the stark and evil in contrastKindred is also an allegory for our modern times still burdened by the wounds of slavery and a racial consciousness in our society that has scars that won’t heal Butler shows us though that we as a nation and a people are bound as kindred between races and with a shared historyBack in

    Kindred PDF ç Paperback kindred book, Kindred PDFDNF at 50% with some skipping What came first the egg or the chicken What came first the badly written book or the reading slump Hard uestions to answer but one thing is certain It definitely did not help forcing me to reach 50% of this book I only did it because of my rating rule and because I wanted to bitch about it So here it is again the time for an unpopular opinion I though this book to be TERRIBLE I don’t even know with what to start I understand it is written by a woman of color in a time when it was an extraordinary accomplishment I get and admire that I also get that she had an agenda to prove how easily one can accept slavery even in our modern world However the above is not a relevant excuse for bad writing cartoonish characters poorly conceived plot and ridiculous dialogue Also the use of time travel had nothing to do with SF there was no explanation of the phenomenon and it felt only

    Kindred PDF ç Paperback kindred book, Kindred PDFOctavia Butler amazes me She writes science fiction that is full of complicated ideas about race and sexuality that are completely readable I’ll innocently start reading thinking only to get a solid start on the book and suddenly discover I’m halfway through the story That isn’t to imply she’s a light weight however; her works are emotionally and ethically dense the subject of numerous high school and college essays A recent read of Dawn inspired a number of recommendations for B

    Kindred PDF ç Paperback kindred book, Kindred PDFOn October 5 2004 Octavia E Butler visited my graduate university to give a lecture and book signing I was really impressed by her She actually spent several hours at the university giving a public interview with one of the professors then a short lecture to a large auditorium then a book signing I even skipped class in order to attend The interview was really fascinating where Butler answered uestions about how she worked to write Kindred and how she felt about the characters and how the result all turned out The professor kind of threw Butler for a loop once when she pulled an interpretation of the book out of left field and Butler blinked and slowly said she didn't write with that interpretation at all in mind but that she was of the opinion that any interpretation the reader reaches is a valid one I thought she

    Kindred PDF ç Paperback kindred book, Kindred PDF“ I never realized how easily people could be trained to accept slavery” I wanted to love this book I knew the slave narrative might be harrowing though it’s not overly graphic but it has an average GR rating over four stars features time travel dilemmas has a strong intelligent kind and practical female protagonist and gives thought provoking insights into the complexity of US race relations in the 1800s and to a lesser extent the 1970s It is a good and powerful exciting and educational book But something didn’t uite connect for me I hoped that composing my thoughts would make me see it in a favourable light and it has Perhaps I just read it too fast to digest it properlyKindred One word seven letters but several interpretations all with emotional impact The most common and literal meaning relates to ti

    Kindred PDF ç Paperback kindred book, Kindred PDFI had no idea what Kindred is about prior to reading it I previously read Octavia Butler's Wild Seed and thought it was marvelous and Kindred seems to be her most popular work judging by Goodreads ratings So buying a copy of Kindred without knowing anything about it was a no brainer I even deliberately avoided looking at the book's synopsis before hand I just wanted to get to know the book as I read on I hoped for a pleasant surprise which I did get This is only the second Octavia Butler book I have read and I already worship herKindred is about Dana an African American woman who finds herself time travelling involuntarily to Maryland in the early nineteenth century It is not explained how or why this happen to her the mechanic of it is entirely irrelevant to the story The novel is about her experience of slavery in the past Her fate becomes intertwined with Rufus a white ancestor who is the only so
