I wasn't sure if I liked this book or not while I was reading it, but it has stuck with me for months afterward. And that to me is one sign of a great book.
Edited to add that reading the first book in the series (Parable of the Sower) made this book more enjoyable.

This is the second in Butler\'s \"Earthseed\" series. A great read, if you enjoy science fiction. This is a disturbing vision of the future.
