Review from SF Eye, Spring 1994 (found via google search):
"...PARABLE OF THE SOWER is a thoroughly good read with characters you can really identify with and line for line intensity. It's edgy, it has a ring of truth, and it's literary writing....[It is] the kind of writing I have always hoped for, expected from good SF writers....Hurry and grab this one up ASAP."
-- Misha Nógha
Other reviews of Parable of the Sower:
~ Contains a summary of the book, and further info as well (if you'd like to purchase it). Also on the site is a reading guide that has discussion questions (spoilers for the book of course), as well as an author page on Octavia. <-- main
