What she does with the voices is amazing. Went to a reading she gave and the research she did for this is incredible -- she said she'd never spend that amount of time on a book again, so if you only read one Kingsolver, this should be it.

“…because nerds like us are allowed to be unironically enthusiastic about stuff… Nerds are allowed to love stuff, like jump-up-and-down-in-the-chair-can’t-control-yourself love it.
