Totally disappointing as far as Barbara Kingsolver goes. I learned a little about our current food systems, but it was so enmeshed in a self-congratulatory tone that I could barely bring myself to finish it.

Also, seriously Barbara, I expected more from you in the way of understanding that over 99% of us do not a)own a farm and/or b)have cushy jobs that allow us to farm all day for our families and then write about it, without the need to make any further ends meet. That little "I addressed the socioeconomic issues" aside was downright insulting.

Alright, it's not thatttttt bad...But it is just that my expectations for Kingsolver were way higher!
