    Description

    The Patternist is a telepathic race, commanded by the Patternmaster, whose thoughts can destroy, heal, rule.

    FINALLY SOMETHING LIVES UP TO WILD SEED!!

    Brilliant narrator who wonderfully makes the listener believe that he has intimate knowledge of more than a dozen different characters.

    The story itself reminds me of the first book by Octavia Butler that I read, and the reason I'm so into AfroFuturism, Wild Seed. For a while I was worried that Wild Seed was the best story of the genre and that I would never again experience the unadulterated joy of a story of that caliber. I've been exposed to other works by Octavia and other writers and found myself wanting more than the works could offer. This book totally restored my faith.

    Not a great narrator

    This book is fascinating. Glad I listened. But the narrator was really disappointing. His reading style was very mechanical, and he frequently made errors in pronunciation, emphasis, and voice. Quite disappointing and distracting.

    Meh

    Listen to the series in the series order, not the publication order. This book is worth a listen because it finished the story, but as her first published, it lacks the polish of the other three.

    I am running out of Octavia books to read.

    Brilliant book! Patternmaster did not disappoint. I have yet to come across an Octavia Butler book I don't like.

    Amazing and at the same time bittersweet 😮😢❗️

    This final contribution to this Patternmaster series does not disappoint. Butler has spun a vast web of emotions, power, evolution, passion, revolution, disaster, sexism, subservience, racism trauma and hope . . . The previous episode of this series (Clay’s Ark) left me bewildered, without the least foreshadowing as to how it fits into this overall narrative. Yet, Octavia’s never failing to astound, using her genius to illustrate a byzantine world beyond the collective understanding! As was expressed in the title of this review, I found this whole amazingly sweet 💕🍯❗️ upon the completion of the Patternmaster I felt again like a young child in my auntie’s backyard fascinated by the beautiful orange fruit hanging from the persimmon tree! In my young mind, I had reasoned that any fruit that enticing must be delicious! I had to rush over to the tree and taste the fruit! If you have yet to a persimmon, please heed this warning! Never eat this fruit before it has had the opportunity to ripen!!! Biting into that unripe persimmon was so traumatizing that it took me another 15 years to try it a second time. I don’t believe there is anything more bitter. While I was basking in the afterglow of the Patternmaster’s amazing sweetness, I was struck with the most bitter realization, Octavia Butler no longer exists on this plane 💔😰, having died from a stroke in 2006 at the age of 58. What more would she have blessed us with if given the opportunity? Setting with this revelation is profoundly heartbreaking for me 💔. Yet, at the same time, I am most grateful for access to the writings she was able to complete 💖. I have talked many have never heard of a black Science Fiction writer, let alone Octavia Butler! As I have expressed before, Octavia is a genius from another dimension. Please don’t sleep on her talent!

    Annoyed

    There's no way I can listen to this. The reader's voice is terribly annoying!!!!! Will have to wait until I have time to read it.

    Hard listen

    I love Octavia Butler but I had a hard time connecting to this book. I couldn't even tell you who was doing what for whatever reason. This book confused me. I finished it cause I do not like unfinished books in my library.

    Patternmaster gets it together ...

    Octavia Butler does not disappoint in this mystery of a science fiction tale. It has it all, drama, suspense, romance, and mystery. Enjoy, I sure did.
