Flaptekst van deze dystopische roman uit 1993
If there is one thing scarier than a dystopian novel about the future, its one written in the past that has already begun to come true. This is what makes Parable of the Sower even more impressive than it was when first published Gloria Steinem We are coming apart. Were 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. All that you touch, You Change. All that you Change, Changes you.
