Review: Kindred

Kindred by Octavia E. Butler

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I read this book over a 2-day period while on vacation and was drawn in from the very beginning. I'm not a sci-fi reader, but this was extremely good without the "science". I thought it was very cleaver to basically end the book where it started off. The Reader's Guide (Critical Essay) was very helpful in understanding the mindset of the Author and gives great insight into the actual time period that the main character time-traveled to. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading books set in slavery times. If you can't stomach slave stories I would stay away because it is very graphic in that sense.
