My BC read Flight Behavior too and most other members LOVED it, whereas I did not. So, I'm glad to read this review. Her writing is gorgeous, but to me it was a thin story to cloak the global warming theme. Many times in the book I felt like Kingsolver was hitting me over the head to get her message across. Where'd you go, Bernadette is amusing and quirky, but also contrived and sometimes tries too hard to be clever. It was entertaining yet too often annoyingly over the top, in my opinion.

I have "Where'd you go Bernadette" waiting for me at the library! I've heard a lot of good things about it.

I don't know if you're much into nonfic, but I read "The Map of My Dead Pilots" by Colleen Mondor recently - it really reads more like fiction and reminded me a lot of when I read "The Things They Carried" in college, almost non-fiction that's meta-fiction. I really enjoyed how the same story can be seen and believed in multiple ways. It was also a fascinating insight into a life I'd never considered.

That's a bummer to hear, I'm desperate for some really amazing new books and I usually love her. I'll try The Unknowns though!
