I love me my Barbara Kingsolver but I stopped reading this book at page 154 and returned it to the library. I couldn't care less about the main character "what's her name" and her smoking addiction and her almost affair. The so called miracle is nothing but a beautiful act of nature I have seen on TV programs and I was not anticipating reading further to learn about global warming. I was disappointed to say the least.

The author captures a sense of place well. I felt sympathetic toward and interested in the characters. While the book focuses on global warming, and Kingsolver obviously wants to get her message across, it was incorporated into the storyline so well that I did not feel like she was lecturing me. The book is a page-turner and the main character has wonderful voice.

I have to give Kingsolver credit here for not populating this novel with straw men against whom to illustrate her green view of the world. If people really listened and discussed the way her characters do in this book, instead of talking across each other like television pundits, we'd get a lot solved.

If you've read any Kingsolver, you know you're going to get socially conscious messages, and great prose, and plenty of cud for chewing. Well, you do.
