Book 14 — Prodigal Summer

As a nature-lover, I really enjoyed Prodigal Summer by Barbara Kingsolver. Her descriptions of the mountains, of moths, of plants, of the interconnectedness of everything were as enjoyable as the story. My only problem was her obvious disdain for traditional Christianity. All of the religious people in the book were judgmental, close-minded, and just plain mean. Other than that, I was spellbound by this book.

  1. Found you at 52 book in 52 weeks. We read the same book this week! šŸ™‚ I had a different take on it. I felt like she spoon fed her environmentalist beliefs to the reader too much, but overall I enjoyed it too. šŸ™‚

    • I do agree with you about that. She certainly had an agenda! I do agree with her to some extent, but it was very one-sided, and she made anyone who used more conventional farming methods seem old-fashioned and stuffy.
