Flight Behavior - Barbara Kingsolver


Kingsolver is a wise and lyrical writer specialising in razor-sharp characters and a passionate sense of place. Here, she takes the apocalyptic environmental message of Prodigal Summer a step further, and if she hammers it home a little hard, well, at least she cares. Her skilled use of narrative echoes and metaphor, mixed with a surprisingly intriguing (if over-long) story makes this enjoyable on any level you want to take it. And you're guaranteed to find yourself Googling monarch butterflies.
