Animal Dreams by Barbara Kingsolver

I just finished this book this morning and it was really good.  I am terrible about saying what books are about because I become so involved in them that it is like telling about your life; you can't put into words what you do everyday because it doesn't seem like much but it is your life.  Yes, I am a little obsessed with books, but this is how I feel when I read them.  I am apart of them and I can't give enough.  I always what to know what happens after.  But anyway back to the book.

I love Barbara Kingsolver, everything I have read by her is great.  And I have many more of her books to read which is great.  She is great at capturing emotions and moments in life, where you do really feel like you are a part of it, you can see it happening.

So if you want a good read, read this.  It takes place in the U.S. Southwest and revolves around a woman trying to find her place in life and the world because she doesn't think she has a home.  That is the best I can do with a plot, sorry.  But you should still read this book.  I liked this book much better than the Poisonwood Bible, if that says anything.

Happy Reading.


  1. Thanks for the reommendation. The Poisonwood Bible is one of my favorite books of all time, and yet I haven't read much else by Barbara. I have The Bean Trees beside my bed right now to start; have you read it?

  2. I have not read the Bean Trees but I will get there eventually I am sure.
