A classic by an absolute master of science-fiction, and a perfect example of the genre’s potential and cultural critique. Despite being almost three decades old, this book remains chillingly prescient and relevant. Must read-read for any fans of the genre. ~ Colin
We are coming apart. We’re a rope, breaking, a single strand at a time.
America is a place of chaos, where violence rules and only the rich and powerful are safe. Lauren Olamina, a young woman with the extraordinary power to feel the pain of others as her own, records everything she sees of this broken world in her journal.
Then, one terrible night, everything alters beyond recognition, and Lauren must make her voice heard for the sake of those she loves.
Soon, her vision becomes reality and her dreams of a better way to live gain the power to change humanity forever.
