I was hesitant to read this book, in spite of the positive reviews. It seated on my wish list for a while. Every time I had to choose a book, I would glance at it, read its description and would eventually move down the list and listen to another one. The reviews were positive, but I just couldn't conjure up the fact that a book dealing with climate change could be interesting. I finally gave it a try and just loved the story from the beginning to the end. Yes, it deals with hard science and religious believes without being preaching, but showing truly compassion to the world and others. The analogies are something else, subtle and profound at the same time.
The main character's wisdom makes the reader (listener) see the world through her lonely and loving heart.
The narrator, Barbara Kingsolver, is the true soul of this story. In fact, I am trying to find other books narrated by her.
The book makes you wonder whether we sometimes forget that behind facts, science, religious beliefs there are human beings flighting from a place inside them no one else knows.
Performance was good.
I expected so much more depth from this book, it is full of cliches, a very superficial account of a former hasidic teenage girl life.
