Indulgent in all the right ways!!!

A wide and thoughtful variety of story premises really defines this collection. The author indulges in deep dives into the characters' perspectives and personalities and plays with standard tropes in innovative and timely ways. The narration is flawless and the production is top-notch. A total treat to listen to.

Good stories, well narrated !!!

I really enjoyed these short stories by Octavia Butler that I am ashamed to admit I had not heard of or read before. Sci for stories that can give insight to societal problems, though they are cloaked in an imaginative story of what ifs. This author has a great imagination and I love both the stories and her afterward explanations of what inspired her to write each one and what she was thinking. The narrator was very good also. I will be reading and listening to more from this author.

Fascinating ideas, worth exploring

A little bogged down in technical language in parts, as you might expect, given the authors background. But the central ideas of these stories are so compelling, you probably won't care. The last story on the role and influence of beauty is particular thought-provoking.

Makes you think. Perfect Book Club selection.

This collection is a treasure trove of mind bending ideas that practically beg to be deconstructed and discussed. If religious subjects weren't so radioactive I could see this collection becoming a high school or college lit classic.

Stories mixed; narration fantastic

The narration, though, is among the best I've heard. Jupiter, in particular, has a delightful voice that she uses to give distinction to an impressive range of characters.

Brilliant and meaningful stories.

Not every story was good, but most were extremely good. I especially enjoyed the one that became the first.

Thought provoking

A wonderful series of short stories that has stayed with me. The quality of voice work varies by story from great to good. While I came for the story that the movie Arrival was based on, all of the stories were fascinating.
