    this is the second purchase from Oxfam Ireland and again it was faultless.

    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.

  • One of Kingsolver's best books Aug 14, 2010
    by Pamela B

    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.
