叩仙门第6卷 石三 有声书下载
This is the second time I've read this book . This time I listened to the audiobook read by Kim Staunton, who I hope reads all of Octavia Butler's audiobooks because I think she does a great job of bringing Butler's characters to life. This story was just as captivating the second time as the first. Butler manages to weave the intricacies of the Black American Experience with sci-fi/fantasy and in this novel she weaves slavery, interracial marriage and time travel. Say what!?! It works. I enjoyed how she teases out the emotions of the main character, Dana, a black woman who finds herself suddenly pulled back in time to 1815. Of course she ends up on a slave owners plantation. But how? Why? And how can she get back to her life, husband and freedom in 1976? Such an interesting story that will make you think about what you would do in the many situations she faced.
