I don't know. It's well-written, has well-realized characters, all that good stuff, but this novel of an America fallen into a sort of third-world status and run by a Christian demagogue seems to meander, bog down, and then accelerate to an unlikely conclusion. Butler tends to be highly praised, and this novel is (I think) regarded as one of her best, but it didn't do much for me.
