    "I was kept in full suspense reading Pigs in Heaven! Without giving too much of the plot away, it deals with a mother and daughter seeing a terrible accident at the Hoover Dam and a wild ride to save a man's life. The duo even gets rewarded by appearing on Oprah Winfrey Show! Definitely Kingsolver's best book!"

    "Homeland and Other Stories is a very difficult read. It's quite slow and the content just doesn't resonate with me. It also drags on way too long. "

    "The Bean Trees is a cleverly written and lighthearted novel with a fantastic plot that anyone can dive right into. As literature it's immersive. As story telling it's relative and humanistic. Barbara Kingsolver took great lengths to portray the characters and their setting realistically and she did a great job in their novelization that's worth the experience of reading."

    "Though she's no David Attenborough, Kingsolver's love and passion for nature comes through in Last Stand. While the concept of land as virginal is somewhat problematic in today's enlightened environment, the book does do justice to some of our country's hidden pockets untouched by man."
