"Flight Behavior" by Barbara Kingsolver
Barbara Kingsolver's latest book is very clearly about the environment.
I really love Barbara Kingsolver's writing ability. Her characters are so fascinating. And this book is no exception.
Dellarobia is fascinating as an unhappy, frustrated, isolated farm wife: "Her life in this little house had felt to her like confinement in a sinking vehicle after driving off a bridge. To open a hatch and swim away felt miraculous". And swim away she did!
But...couldn't Barbara make her environmental message a little more discreet,
with less complex science involved?
And please..a better cover! This one is deadly boring!
