Reviews of Clay's Ark (1984)
Review by sTalking_Goat (2003-03-11)
Ms. Butler's darkest book by far. Even more so than 'Parable of the Talents' because there's not even a remotely hopefully ending. But bad Butler is orders of magnitude better than most of the other stuff you'll find on the shelves. If you like Dystopian sci-fi (or spec-fi if you prefer that term) then you'll like Butler and you'll like this.
