This arrived in the mail today; I have about one week to read it before book club.
I've read several of Kingsolver's books and it's not the most exciting, I'd give that to The Poisonwood Bible, but the story is solid and made me curious about the real Mary Treat. It is clearly trying to connect the Vineland story to current events, which is a little weak, and gets preachy at times, but overall I enjoyed it.
Finished up this excellent audiobook today. #NFNov @rsteve388 @Clwojick
This book takes an extensive look into the history of philosophers and scientists who questioned the difference and changes in the natural world around them. Although some of this I knew, I still learned lots. Great book for anyone interested in evolutionary biology.
#TIL DaVinci never had any formal education or training. He also taught himself to read and write Latin.
This is type of story we all deserved from Twilight! A fun destinies intwined romance with a fight against good and evil to help protect creatures from the brink of extinction. My favorite part of this book was probably the constant referencing to different ideas and theories throughout history and Matthew was able to witness.

I've wanted to read this for ages as I've read all of her others and she's probably my favourite writer. I heard a Radio 4 adaptation but am whizzing through this as she's so eloquent and wonderful.
