    Dellarobia Turnbow is a restless farm wife who gave up her own plans when she accidentally became pregnant at 17. Now, after a decade of domestic disharmony on a failing farm, she encounters a shocking sight: a silent, forested valley filled with what looks like a lake of fire. She can only understand it as a cautionary miracle, but it sparks a raft of other explanations from scientists, religious leaders, and the media.

    Story
    What did you love best about Flight Behavior?

    It's a very important novel about real world concerns about climate change. Slow to get into but worth the effort.


    What did you like best about this story?

    While a novel, the story educates one about the monarch butterflies flight and plight as well as the world's current precarious hold.


    Any additional comments?

    Read by the author makes it a bit more special.

    Story

    It was supposed to be a quick trip to the store, but it turned into an Unspeakable Journey. On the eve of her 30th birthday, Isabella is abducted in the parking lot of her local grocery store. Hasam, a sinister human trafficker, arranges for her to marry Latif, his longtime friend and a Saudi Arabian prince. Latif has everything—political prowess, success, and wealth—until he meets Isabella.

    catlady27 says: "worst book ever. ridiculous storyline."
    "Disappointed with the Book"
    Overall

    I was disappointed with the reading of the book. The author's inflections make it hard to listen to the story. As a result it was hard to continue to listen to the story and I'd not recommend listening to it.
