tiny positioning movements of independent life.

imago

i wish all series could end as well as the xenogenesis trilogy does with imago. octavia butler ended the series with it’s strongest book. the human/oankali symbiotic relationship comes to an apex with the creation of jodah, a perfect ooloi/human hybrid. no one is sure what to think of it, some are happy, most are threatened. the majority wants it to leave earth, so it’s family go into hiding, letting jodah mature and prove it’s no threat. i can’t get over octavia’s imagination and ability to layer complex issues into a story line. i’m enamoured by her style.
