Dawn - Octavia E. Butler Octavia Butler should be required reading for those of us who like the more psychological sci-fi than the jargony/war/sciency sci-fi stuff. Which is not to say that Verner Vinge doesn't have his place. But I've always been more of an Orson Scott Card, Dan Simmons, Anne McCaffrey, Sherri S. Tepper kind of a girl.This book is all about the mind and the interesting time an alien would have trying to make sense of our behavior in comparison to their own. In other words, they fail utterly at understanding us, what we need, and how our brains process new info.And if you don't find it one of the most fascinating sci-fi books you've ever read, I'll eat my hat.
