Review of Parable of the Sower
Parable of the Sower is a book I have read many times and will read many more times. This a the type of book that each time you read it you learn something new about Lauren. I love reading the Earth Seed Verses it makes you feel closer to the character and what she stands for. I love Lauren, she is such a strong character! She is knowledgable, trustworthy, kind, and isn’t perfect. She has her flaws like anyone else.
I found her hyperempathy syndrome to be a very interesting aspect in the book. Here is a quote from the book. “They could kill if they had to, and bear the pain of it or be destroyed by it. But if everyone could feel everyone else’s pain, who would torture?” I love this quote because it is extremely true and I feel that this alone could stop wars and fighting.... Not only does Lauren feel others pain, but she also shares their feeling while they are having sex. So many interesting aspects to this story; it never gets old for me! I rate this book 5 Big Fat Gold Stars!
