    Download Book ¾ Clay's Ark â Octavia e butler Clay's ArkI enjoyed the purity of this science fiction tale on the theme of alien possession In this short novel of less than 200 pages we are subjected to an intense story of survival of a single family with the fate of the human race at stake The terrible choices they must make put it over the line into the territory of psychological horror What makes this book stand out is its use of the story as a doorway to larger themes of what it means to be human and to be part of a communityWritten in 1984 the tale is set in the California Mojave Desert in 2021 close to our present but 40 years from then The projection is of a dystopic future in which civilization is on the bleeding edge The haves live in gated compounds and the have nots live in “sewers” vast regions dominated by lawless gangs A doctor and his two 16 year old daughters end up being kidnapped by a community of pe

    Download Book ¾ Clay's Ark â Octavia e butler Clay's ArkAlright This is the third or fourth Patternmaster book I’m reading depending on which order you read and by now they all seem to be the same plot but with different characters A group of people or individuals have to have sex to survive This one went from Butler’s usual dub con and sexual coersion straight into incestuous rape attempt and I think I’ve had my share of that theme now Every conversation is about rape wondering about rape fearing rape asking about rape being empowered through rape being killed by rape all the sorts I ever didn’t want to imagine I need a break okay?

    Download Book ¾ Clay's Ark â Octavia e butler Clay's Ark “He had started what could become an epidemic Now if he were going to be able to live with himself at all he had to contain it”That sounds like a good tagline for an ad poster for this book However as it was published in 1984 I doubt such a poster existsOctavia Butler is one of my all time favorite authors my reviews of her books tend to be somewhat fanboyish short on objectivity and of course completely unprofessional this not being my profession Still I find it uite pleasant to enthuse about her to anyone who would listen and also those who would not Clay’s Ark is ostensibly part of Ms Butler’s Patternmaster Series However it reads entirely like a standalone I have read the two previous volumes Wild Seed and Mind of My Mind and I cannot find any connection to this book I have heard that there is a connection somewhere on one page but it must have slipped under my radar Perhaps it is better this way so that an

    Download Book ¾ Clay's Ark â Octavia e butler Clay's ArkWhere Butler gets it right— always gets it right—is in the fascinating premises she builds her novels on Where she occasionally gets it wrong is in the developmentButler published Patternmaster in 1974 and then spent the next eight years filling in the history of the far future world she had created This produced Wild Seed which became one of her best novels but it also produced Survivor which she later disowned and Clay's ArkClay's Ark has the usual Butlerian sexual racial and xenophobic tensions and is fairly gripping as far as the pacing goes Unfortunately it never rises above its status as a preuel—there is no clear reason why this story needed to be told out of all the stories Butler could have written except that the Clayarks of Patternmaster needed

    Download Book ¾ Clay's Ark â Octavia e butler Clay's ArkAt first I expected Clay's Ark to have human interest? for me than Mind of My MindBoth novels concern a sort of new development for humanity Mind of My Mind has people with psychic abilities who are gaining power by working as a group and Clay's Ark has an isolated set of people infected by an alien disease which changes them completely All of the major characters in Mind of My Mind were part of the in group of psychics; there was no real voice for the ordinary humans whom the psychics were able to use and prey on I think this had a purpose in the novel but one of the effects was to make it cold the psychic characters are difficult to sympathize withMore than half of Clay's Ark is told from the perspective of three people who are kidnapped by the disease carriers The disease like a souped up Selfish Gene changes its victims' behavior and thoughts driving them to infect other people so that the disease can survive and spread The carrie
