    I ordered this book entirely because of the author, I love her stuff, and was completely thrilled and pleased with the book.

    I agree with Marybee. I loved most of Kingsolver's novels, so was certain this one would be good. Yes, I learned some art and political history, but at the expense of being really bored. Sorry, Barbara, but this was not your best work. It's not even good.

    This book is interesting and informative about a little know time in our history. At times a bit confusing, overall a great read.

    This is an excellent, thought- provoking book told from the vantage point of a young man, for the most part. It brings out much history of which I was not aware and which I would like to find the time to research further. I am amazed at Kingsolver's imagination and wording to create such a novel as this.

    I bought this book based on a television literary critic's recommendation and was deeply disappointed since it rambles on and on and is slow and boring and takes forever to wrap up all the details of the plot. I finally gave up reading every word and turned to the final ten pages, and it wasn't that satisfying a denouemont..wrap up. I think I am not a fan of Kingsolver anymore, this effort was a blitz of verbiage basically meaning nothing and going nowhere.
