Please monitor the juveniles who have been consistently using the customer review blog to write infantile nonsense on the blog. Readers want to get an informative review. I have noticed the same username on other Barnes and Noble book review blogs.

Good writing, but cliche

Not my favorite. Got somewhat bogged down in climate, biology and Appalacia stereotypes.

    Like an ecology textbook

    Not one of her best. While the characters were interesting, you had to wade through pages and pages of dry environmental theory. I got through the book but barely.

    Painful read to start...better after the first hundred pages.

    This was a very painful read for me, especially the beginning. Character development went on and on and on...I felt i was reading a Dickens novel. After the first hundred pages it got interesting.

    BK's The Poisonwood Bible gripped my attention like a hot iron vice, so I expected much of the same from her latest novel. However, Flight Behavior never got off the ground for me. The conversations between the characters rang false and were literally mind numbing dissertations that felt more like redneck rocking chair torture. What's worse is that I was really wanting to root for the protagonist, Dellarobia, but I couldn't stand her --seriously raked my nerves and tried my patience. I found her annoyingly pathetic and every one of her interactions was dimwitted and boring at best. This read was brutal due to Kingsolver's endless rants about the environment, unruly children, dogs, in-laws, regrets, unkept homes, church service , shopping at the Dollar store and the list goes on and on, leaving me to believe that picking bellybutton lint would be way more interesting. Unless you want to be held responsible for the suicide of a few vital braincells, put this book down.

    Go to library, save yourmoney

    Read first couple chapters and last. A long sad story about global warming and a woman lacking everything.
