    Unexpected Stories eBook µ Kindle Edition unexpected ebok, stories kindle, Unexpected Stories PDF/EPUBIt's Octavia Butler sounding very Octavia Butler esque That in itself warrants five stars That said in my opinion these aren't Octavia at her best I found the first story A Necessary Being was fascinating and thought provoking Again Octavia explores ideas of hierarchy communication and relationships something I've always loved about herbut when you have characters with blue skin I couldn't help thinking of the Navi and Krishna That's not a bad thing by definition but for this story it was unavoidable and definitely affected how I i

    Unexpected Stories eBook µ Kindle Edition unexpected ebok, stories kindle, Unexpected Stories PDF/EPUBI'm a HUGE Octavia Butler fan In fact her books were my first intro to queer lit of any kind and really defined my expectations for sci fi I think she was an unparallelled thinker and I was devastated when I learned that she has passed years before I started reading her stuff The idea that I would never get a new book from her was maddening When I saw that a new collection of her stories was coming out I almost cried I was so happy A Necessary Being 45 starsThis story reminds me of everything that I love about Octavia Butler Amazing effortless feeling world building interesting commentary on gender roles and the concept of castesrace

    Unexpected Stories eBook µ Kindle Edition unexpected ebok, stories kindle, Unexpected Stories PDF/EPUBIt is such an emotional experience to receive these stories so long after Octavia’s passing Like with Zora Neale Hurston being given these works posthumously and hearing these voices again that we never thought we would is such a tremendous gift These unexpected stories were just that unexpected They have all of the creativity and ingenuity I have come to know in all of Butler’s work I was immediately back in one of her worlds without even thinking of how easy it is to slide into writing this complex and original There are only two short stories in this collection but I was initially surprised to find that “Unexpected Stories” was one of the first things she e

    Unexpected Stories eBook µ Kindle Edition unexpected ebok, stories kindle, Unexpected Stories PDF/EPUBA large part of the reason I picked up a particular Humble Bundle was because it included several Octavia Butler books including the two Parables one of which I'd read and one of which I hadn't I wasn't sure what Unexpected Stories would be but my general theory is that if it's Butler I'm inNote The rest of this review has been withheld due to the changes in Goodreads policy and enforcement You can read why I came to this decision hereIn the meantime you can read the entire review at Smorgasbook
