I greatly enjoyed this audio adaptation of Octavia Butlers book. Thigpen did a fine job reading paying sincere attention to Olaminas character. At one point the word 'yes' was all it took to move me. A fantastic listen and an intriguing work of literature, accessible to fans of future fantasy, amateur philosophers, survivalists and those who struggle with spirituality and its' emotional fight with science. Never too preachy, but instead encouraging, this book makes amends for much of the God heavy literature of this same type. The comparison of God to Entropy was notable and thought provoking. The conversations were believable and situations easily within mental grasp. Totally worthwhile food for thought and entertainment with some real literary meat. Moments of subtle cutting sexuality dug in and gave even greater depth to what could have been left simply to a story of disconnected pain and struggle to survive. This book all in all had me wishing everyone had a little "hyperempathy". A good read for sure.
