Review of 'Animal Dreams' by Barbara Kingsolver
Another nicely-written, well-structured book from Barbara Kingsolver, which I thoroughly enjoyed. It's great that she not only creates believable characters (especially blue-collar ones), but that she also has her heart so firmly in the right place. This one has environmental degradation and a sister who goes off to help the Sandinista revolution as an agronomist. I'm a bit concerned that the ending is a bit fairy-tale, at least as far as the evil environment-trashing mining company is concerned, but I'm not sure I could have endured a more 'realistic' ending.
