The complete Patternist series--the acclaimed science fiction epic of a world transformed by a secret race of telepaths and their devastating rise to power. In the late seventeenth century, two immortals meet in an African forest. Anyanwu is a healer, a three-hundred-year-old woman who uses her wisdom to help those around her. The other is Doro, a malevolent despot who has mastered the power of stealing the bodies of others when his wears out. Together they will change the world.   Over the next three centuries, Doro mounts a colossal selective breeding project, attempting to create a master race of telepaths. He succeeds beyond his wildest dreams, splitting the human race down the middle and establishing a new world order dominated by the most manipulative minds on Earth.   In these four novels, award-winning author Octavia E. Butler tells the classic story that began her legendary career: a mythic tale of the transformation of civilization.   This ebook features an illustrated biography of Octavia E.

    Survivor af Octavia E. Butler (scholz)
    scholz: Survivor is the novel in the Patternist series missing from this collection. Note that Butler herself didn't like Survivor, which might explain why it was not included in the omnibus.

A gyűjtemény címe "The Complete Patternist Series" ami kissé meglepő módon a Patternist sorozat öt könyve közül csak négyet tartalmaz, mert az ötödikkel utólag nagyon elégedetlen volt az író. A könyveket kronológiai (és nem publikációs) sorrendben olvastam.

Wild Seed

Egy utólag írt előzményregény, ahol két különleges képességekkel rendelkező karakter élettörténetét ismerjük meg. A két szereplő tényleg érdekes, a többi karakter is izgalmas, de a kb. évszázadonként előreugró történet egy idő után eléggé repetitívnek tűnt.

Mind of My Mind

Ennek a könyvnek az előzményregénye volt a Wild Seed. Csak pár évvel írta korábban a szerző, mégis gyengébbnek éreztem az írás minőségét, a viszonylag kevés karaktert is folyamatosan összekevertem, ráadásul a korábbi regényben megismert két karakter is sokkal kevésbé tűnt itt fontosnak, mint az előző regény alapján vártam.

Clay's Ark

Ez a könyv egy teljesen új történet, látszólag semmi köze az előző két regényhez (kivéve a könyv végét). Egy korrekt módon megírt regény, ami egy új csoportot mutat be, csak éppen az nem világos, hogy miért is fontos az a csoport.

Patternmaster

Az időrendben utolsó regényt írta Butler legelőször, itt érnek össze a szálak, nagyon leegyszerűsítve, az első két regénynek megismert csoport (akiket jobban megismerünk) küzd a harmadik regény csoportjával (akik inkább csak az arctalan ellenség szerepét töltik be).

Összefoglalva engem túlzottan nem fogott meg ez a regénysorozat, a korábbi regények nincsenek túl jól megírva, a későbbiek pedig csak előzményregények amelyek önmagukban nem állnak meg. Ha valakit érdekel ez a sorozat, akkor szerintem az elsőként megírt Patternmastert érdemes elolvasni, és csak akkor továbbmenni, ha az nagyon tetszett. ( )

Octavia E. Butler is by far one of the best Sci-fi authors I've had the pleasure to discover. This series is no different. Following generations expertly, keeping the focal character at any given point absolutely engaging, and then daring to erase them is a feat not often achievable in fiction. Yet she does it with style and grace.
Superb. ( )

I didn't really like the second and third books, but the first and last were good ( )

All four books in this series had quite different feels and it's certainly possible to enjoy the books as standalones. If I were to only read one, it would be Wild Seed.

Wild Seed: Wow! A real interesting power struggle between two supernatural humans who have a complicated and at times abusive relationship. A lot of bad things happen to good people, and Octavia Butler has a real good way of making you feel truly awful when someone you care about is coerced into doing something.

Mind of My Mind: I spent most of this book wishing that the cool characters from Wild Seed would have bigger roles. But the main character in this book was, I thought, somewhat flat - and her conflicts never seemed particularly threatening or interesting. I guess there was a lot of ink from the perspective of someone who wanted to control people and not a lot from other perspectives so the book just felt somewhat one-dimensional. Quick read, though, and sets up the Pattern for Patternmaster.

Clay's Ark: here we get a pretty interesting escape story. You got your standard post-water California setting, and some people who got captured by wackos on the highway, and you have a backstory for these wackos which explains their group motivations pretty well. However I felt like the individual motivations were occasionally a bit lacking. Sometimes people would do things and it just didn't jive with how they had been characterized to that point. It felt pretty detached from the previous books - I guess it's the first one that launches into sci-fi territory, and also there's no mention of the Pattern or related phenomena beyond the passing mention of how Clay's Ark worked.

Patternmaster: This was a good end to the series, I think. It brought the Clayarks and Patternists together, examines what each have lost from their original humanity, and is a fun romp with plenty of intrigue, action, and truly heinous villains brought to justice. The three other books occur in the distant past of this one, and so the world has a feeling of deep history to it that it wouldn't have had as a standalone book. ( )

It's a bit hard to write a review of an omnibus, and others have already done very good reviews. I originally bought the omnibus *after* buying an expensive copy of Survivor (the book that was excluded from this). I wanted to see what it was about, and to understand why the book was excluded, and whether it added to the group of stories, or detracted.

Patternmaster was the last work in this grouping, but the first actually published (and the first successful work by the author, as well). It's one of the strongest, as is Wild Seed, which is placed as the first work in the anthology (but was written after Survivor). Clay's Ark is the third work in the anthology, and was the last novel written in the series. Mind of My Mind is the second work in the anthology, and was written very soon after Patternmaster. It may be that Wild Seed was written to flesh out the details, or perhaps the author felt the need to revisit the characters in greater detail.. Patternmaster and Wild Seed are by far the strongest works, as is Survivor.

I understand, after reading all five, why she eliminated Survivor from this collection. It's a very different work, and effort, and doesn't need the other works as preface, or explanation. ( )
