This is the second book I've read by Octavia Butler and I'm completely impressed by the complexity and intrigue of this story I was afraid that being sci fi I would find it difficult to get into the story and that there would be so much to digest that I would miss something However that is not the case The story is told with extremely adept writing and Butler definitely took into consideration that she was trying to entertain while saying something So what is she saying Tons of stuff She made astute commentary on racism sexism life the sexes community survival etc and the list goes on I recommend it highly I can't wait to go on to book 2 Adulthood Rites on Saturday I'm rooting for you Lilith You can check out my video review here

Aliens save the human race from themselvesOctavia Butler’s 1987 novel Dawn begins her Xenogenesis trilogy the series was titled Lilith's Brood in the Omnibus that was published in 2000 She would continue the story with Adulthood Rites in 1988 and complete the set with Imago in 1989Essentially the world has been devastated by a nuclear war and all that remains of humanity are a few straggler survivors who are picked up by an alien race who has been observing us Butler spends little time here though; we get to know the protagonist Lilith as she is kept alive and awakened by the aliensWhat Butler does with deft erudition and literary skill is build a sense of dramatic tension between Lilith and her alien savior captors Lilith is a difficult hero reluctantly taking the lead in re awakening her fellow humans to be a vanguard of a new civilization and possibly a new raceButler’s phenomenal talent creates for us a richly complex science fiction story but Dawn also acts as a vehicle whereby Butler can explore themes of sexuality isolation gender race and species Not to be lost are also mythic and Biblical references not the least of which is the name given to her protagonist the pre legendary first wife of Adam Butler uses this premise to suggest and illustrate what is wrong with humans and how we can be improved Another Biblical connection could be Lilith as a Moses figure leading a second wave of humans to a promised land earthDawn also reminds me of a primer in sociology In college I took a sociology class and we had a group project We were divided up into partnerships of four and the premise was that we were to pick people to start a civilization after having traveled by spaceship to colonize a new planet Each small group decided what people and in what order would be awakened and we also decided how the new world would be organized It was entertaining and informative to see how different the groups were and in what cultural and political schemes of organization were usedRecommended

I've never really read anything like this before It had some of the most alien aliens I've ever come across and it spends a lot of time exporing their physiology gender sexuality and society all parts that I really enjoyedThe whole thing is very unnerving blunt and extremely uncomfortable in places This novel very much felt like the first third of a larger story so I'll definitely be finishing this series
