Spoilt by the writing style.
on 31 October 2007
It's really hard to review this book because it started out wonderfully with two essays written by an American woman, espousing all the views I would like all Americans to have. A world understanding on the events leading up to 9/11 that does not just involve violence and retaliation.
After that I got bogged down in arguments for conservation and the termination of GM crops,which, while totally valid, were written in a heavy style that lost my interest.
Barbara Kinsolver shares every view on world events and conservation that I hold, I wish I could say I enjoyed the book, but in the end I had to give up, it was just too much of a trudge.
