I hope I never get tired of Kingsolver. I always forget how good her writing and characters make me feel about the world. And how I momentarily miss Arizona everytime I read Turtle and Taylor and Lou Ann and Mattie and Estevan and Esperanza back into life. Probably about time for a re-read of Animal Dreams too...

[4 stars for goodness' sake. Tempted to add an extra star for how nice it was to read something good after reading something terrible, but 4's stars enough, right?]

Kerri Stebbins I really am so very excited to read all of her words. And I'm hereby biting my thumb at Oprah for keeping me away from Kingsolver for so long.

message 2: by Jennie (new)

Jennie I fucking loved this book! I always forget how much I love Kingsolver until I read her. Which reminds me that I have at least one unread Kingsolver on my shelf and it's perhaps time to remedy that.
