I'm going to need for Jordan Peele to make this one into a movie next.

I mean...this has none of the humor of Get Out...but it definitely has all of the horror. I reviewed Kindred, the novel, not too long ago. I thought it was remarkable, but I don't think it reached me like this.

Visuals are powerful things.

My stomach and my emotions moved with this. This was a totally different way to experience this sci-fi classic that tackles racism, slavery, domestic violence...it's a deep psychological look into the pathology and legacy of slavery. I took the advice of the (book) supplier and gave this book a more careful and thoughtful examination. I took breaks and allowed myself to fully digest the story. And now I feel like I need a book discussion, because I'm just sitting here in my feelings and I need closure.

This is an excellent tribute to the memory and legacy of Octavia Butler.
