    Novella Carpenter loves cities - the culture, the crowds, the energy. At the same time, she can't shake the fact that she is the daughter of two back-to-the-land hippies who taught her to love nature and eat vegetables. Ambivalent about repeating her parents' disastrous mistakes, yet drawn to the idea of backyard self-sufficiency, Carpenter decided that it might be possible to have it both ways.

    Sarah says: "Not an instruction book but a fun read"
    "I've already listened to it twice!"

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Farm City to be better than the print version?

    Yes.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The humor and joy mixed with the grit.


    What does Karen White bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She gives a real feel of being in the story.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    There may be "no there, there" but They're There and living the dream (my dream, anyway)


    Any additional comments?

    Might there be a "further adventures" coming out?

    Fifteen-year-old Christopher Boone has Asperger's Syndrome, a condition similar to autism. He doesn't like to be touched or meet new people, he cannot make small talk, and he hates the colors brown and yellow. He is a math whiz with a very logical brain who loves solving puzzles that have definite answers.

    Robert says: "Endearing. Pathos, humor, reality, and insight."
    "I was moved to tears!"

    Absolutely. We should never judge another until we walk a mile in their shoes. This story takes you on a walk you will never forget.
