What the community says about Bloodchild and Other Stories
- "I love Octavia Butler's writing and this book was my first exposure to her many years ago. Loved it so much that I had to get the kindle version. I highly recommend it as even her short stories are complex and make you think. It's so rare to read a collection of shorts without wanting to skip at least one or two. This is a collection of stories you can read from cover to cover, including the essays. Bloodchild and Other Stories is a fantastic read"
- "I recently bought the book "Bloodchild and Other Stories" as a birthday gift for a friend of mine, and I'm sure he really enjoyed it. The author of this book, Octavia Butler, won many awards, and you can see clearly that her style is pretty unique. I suggest it to everyone"
- "Bloodchild and Other Stories is the go to book for science fiction short stories with a feminist overtone. Octavia Butler carefully creates her characters and their portrayals in this highly acclaimed collection. I've read this set so many times before but I continue to read it because I find all of the stories so short and satisfying. "
- "What better way to get familiar with an author than by picking up a book with many of her stories to truly understand the author's style. I walked away from this with a great appreciation for Butler, especially Bloodchild, and will certainly read more of her works in the future. The books are as thought-provoking as they are well-written."
- "A wonderful collection of short stories about sci-fi, I had no idea this existed until I was looking for some short stories book to read. I was curious and picked it up on a whim and boy am I glad I did. The writing on these stories so elegant and flowing, the stories are interesting and full of human drama along with impossible future scenarios and all sorts of dystopias. It's an excellent book for any fans of sci-fi, short stories or really for any avid readers."
