Books I’ve Read No. 19 -fledgling 

Standard

By Octavia E. Butler.

Loved it. I read it a little slower than most of the books that I really like. I think it is because I had not one clue what was going on at first, and some parts at the beginning are pretty disturbing! Once I understood that what I thought was horrible had a good reason for being, it was simply fascinating.

Even more fascinating is the author herself. Have a look at her Wiki page – she won so many awards and I’m sorry to see she has passed on. 

I’m sure I’ve read something of her work before, but never looked her up. This new experiment of mine, blogging about what I’ve read, is a welcome educational experience for me, too.

  1. Wow, Spiders, exciting to hear you’re coming over with the Bearded Himself. And terrible to hear about Soviet Soviet. They’re actually getting a good deal of press about their ordeal — made it onto yahoo feature page. HATEFUL country these days. Are you sure you want to visit? Kidding. Kinda.

Thoughts? Gardening tips? Cocktail recipes? Don't just like and leave, please - I can talk for Ireland and would love to prove it!
