The All-Powerful Atheismo: Animal Dreams was a terrible book.

A terrible, terrible book.

Tres terrible.

well, it's better to talk about this stuff than sparkly vampires, whiny slutty vampires, poorly written smut, wizards, or whatever the hell else people think should be published wholesale.

Dellarobia, an Appalachian native who has never boarded an airplane, is barely able to conceive of a life beyond the impoverished constraints of sheep-rearing, at least until a colony of Monarch butterflies decides to winter on her family's property. The butterflies traditionally spend the season in Mexico, but have made an emergency landing in Appalachia due to drastic climate change. Dellarobia first takes in the sight of millions of orange Monarchs fluttering in trees as a personal gift from God. It's not until news of the Monarchs attracts a Harvard-educated, Virgin Islands-born entomologist named Ovid that Dellarobia really begins to feel the chafe of intellectual and economic poverty.

Typical tree-huggery nuttery from Kingsolver. In her books, a coyote howling outside brings epiphanies, and the simple life is better than yours.

I will be reading this as soon as possible.
