Everyone I've talked to about this book LOVED it, but it felt tired, like it had been done already. Maybe it's because I had been reading Michael Pollan and Plenty while waiting to get Kingsolver's book from the library. I wish she had written the book with an audience of people trying to "eat right" (e.g., buying organic, cooking meals instead of just heating frozen things or going to restaurants). The book was about her experience of trying to eat locally, but she was also advocating that others do that. To that end, more discussion of ways to eat locally if you have limited space for growing food, ideas for how to be a locavore with a limited budget, etc. I did come away from this book with a desire to make my own cheese, though I haven't tried it yet.
