Mehso-so

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.

Schnoebs @HOTPock3tt finally getting around to posting my review for this beauty 😂 2mo
HOTPock3tt That opening line though!! 🙌🏽♥️ the twilight we all deserved!! 🤗 and I loved the time references in the book as well.I loved imagining one person live thru all that and what it would‘ve felt like. One of my fave parts was the ideas of witches & vampires in the library!! I like to imagine it that way when I go! Also the descriptions of the bodelian since I would love to go!! @Schnoebs (edited) 2mo

This is the first Barbara Kingsolver book I have ever liked out of the many that I've read.

Texreader Interesting that you‘ve kept reading her books. I stopped after despising Poisonwood Bible, a most unpopular opinion. 2mo
Blueberry @Texreader three of them for my f2f bookclub. 2mo
Texreader @Blueberry That makes sense. So you liked this one? What made this one different? I wonder if I should try it. 2mo

Cathythoughts I really want to try another one , like @Texreader , I did not like ( or even finish) Poisonwood ... it put me off ! 2mo
Blueberry @Texreader @Cathythoughts i read Poisonwood Bible and gave up on The Lacuna, Flight Behavior, and Animal Vegetable Miracle. If you do read Unsheltered, let me know how you like it. 2mo
TrishB Loved Poisonwood and The Lacuna and this one 😁 I think this one was my fave. 2mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I‘ve heard great things about Poisonwood and Unsheltered!! 2mo

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.

AlohaAmy Another of my favourite authors 🤓 2mo
rachaich @AlohaAmy think she's got a similar style to Anne Tyler 😊😊. I'd also recommend Elizabeth Stroud and Anna Quinden 😘 2mo
