Flight Behavior, the newest novel from Barbara Kingsolver, is set in Appalachia and has a marvelously imaginative scenario involving climate change.  It has wonderful, complex, flawed characters who still manage to be likeable.  As the main character, Dellarobia, struggles to find her place in life, she is reminded of the Bible verse, "Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares."

I read it twice: once for the plot and the second time for the imagery (which sometimes distracted from the plot).  A very satisfying book.


  1. I love her writing, haven't read this one yet, but her last one: Animal, Vegetable, Miracle was fantastic.

  2. Oh, looks like a great read! I hope there are goats in it. :)


Thank you!
