Customer Review

on 3 February 1999
"Animal Dreams" is one of those books people either love, or just don't get what all the hoopla is about. After the first 50 pages, I found I couldn't put the book away. Barbara Kingsolver writes in such a manner that you forget you are reading text. Her colorful discriptions of the Southwestern landscape and people engulfed all my senses. The characters were very realistic to me, because I know those same people, only by different names. There may be character development flaws and storyline weaknesses, but I am not a literary critic. I read for pleasure, and for me, this book contained many miles of enjoyment. If you want to read a book that will skillfully transport you from where you are, "Animal Dreams" has that magic. I wouldn't recommend this book to everyone, because you have to have a certain kind of vision to see how beautiful the desert and it's people are. If you don't already have a sensability of wonder and affection for the region, then you're probably one of those people who just don't, and won't, ever get it.
