Love love loved it. The first half of the book was about ecology and biodiversity. I love when Kingsolver writes about the environment - fascinating, beautiful and jam-packed full of information. The second half felt extremely timely with the 10 year anniversary of September 11 his weekend. It was a meditation on the values that can bring peace to the world - home, community, healthy food, books and ideas, and love. It was incredibly beautiful to read.
