Prodigal Summer - Barbara Kingsolver


Reading three or four books at once meant that I read this one as perhaps was intended - the language and the hot summer it described are so intense that it's best read in small chunks. Like 'Pigs in Heaven', it was educational too, and was a successful manifesto for encouraging humans to live in harmony with nature. Preachy, perhaps, but saved by its poetry and original characters. Better sex scenes than in 'Rescue Me' as well.
