This book was just wonderful on many levels. I love how she weaves the different stories together, and how she challenges my beliefs.

As a woman who feels connected to farming and nature, I found this book to be a beautiful ode to humans' complicated participation in the natural world. Kingsolver's writing is surprisingly beautiful and honest...I found myself laughing out loud, re-reading passages in wonder at the author's skill, and yes, crying. This is the best novel I have ever read. It put into words many things I have been trying to understand.

This is a book I could not put down, could not wait to get back to. Kingsolver is completely entrancing, perfectly coordinating her interwoven plots so deftly and unpredictably that you almost don't mind each next switch.

You're enlightened, learning more detail from her vast knowledge of natural facts. You're enchanted by her exquisite prose. You're moved by her devotion to the nuances of character. This, of hers, absorbed me more than any before or since. It's the kind of book you give to your favorite nature-loving people.
