Kingsolver reads this book herself, which is always a huge plus for me. She is a brilliant essayist, and this book actually made me feel better in the wake of 9-11 (especially since she reads with such a sweet and sincere voice). I enjoy her fiction, but this is the first book of hers that I truly loved. You will enjoy it much more if you're in the liberal/environmentalist camp- otherwise it will probably sound preachy.
