I have started reading Flight Behaviour by Barbara Kingsolver. I am ashamed to say I have never read her before, despite hearing everyone I know raving about The Poisonwood Bible.
Sometimes there are authors that it takes you a while to get round to, you know?
Flight Behaviour is a beautifully written book. The first chapter alone has some astonishing prose, poetic, yet light and accessible. It is pure literary fiction, writing for the sheer beauty that can be created by words and imagination.
The stone is most definitely stonier with this book. I want to be reading it ALL THE TIME.
But you know, between twins and a job, that ain't going to happen.
I just want to lie down and be tucked in to this book......
