For a minute I buried my face in the afghan, which smelled like a familiar animal. When I looked up again he was facing me, drying his hands on a dish towel, one finger at a time. I would just like to know," he said.

For a minute I buried my face in the afghan, which smelled like a familiar animal. I put my face back in the afghan and suddenly I started to cry. I have no idea where the tears came from, they just came from my eyes. I didn't want either one of us to admit helplessness here. I kept my face down for a long time, soaking the wool. When I finally glanced up he was putting something away in the refrigerator.

Animals dream about the things they do in the day time just like. This is the book that Barbara Kingsolver herself came perilously close to throwing away, in an elliptically long moment of self-doubt. I love this book and I love it more every time I read it, which has maybe been 6 or 7 times by now. I wanted to read it last year, but was in Indonesia and couldn't find a Kindle version.

From Barbara Kingsolver, the acclaimed author of Flight Behavior, The Lacuna, The Bean Trees, and other modern classics, Animal Dreams is a passionate and complex novel about love, forgiveness.

Emelina’s eyes were so wide I could only think of Mrs. Dynamite’s husband watching Miss America. We’ll see if he stays on the wagon. Codi, that’s so romantic. up a thing for me except cracking his knuckles. Well, that’s something, I said. No, it doesn’t even count, because I terrorized him out of it. I told him it would give him arthritis or something. Emelina and I were eating chili dogs at a roadside diner on 1-10. Loyd’s pickup, which we’d borrowed for the trip, was parked where we could keep an eye on it.

"Animals dream about the things they do in the day time just like people do. If you want sweet dreams, you've got to live a sweet life." So says Loyd Peregrina, a handsome Apache trainman and latter-day philosopher. But when Codi Noline returns to her hometown, Loyd's advice is painfully out of her reach. Dreamless and at the end of her rope, Codi comes back to Grace, Arizona to confront her past and face her ailing, distant father. What the finds is a town threatened by a silent environmental catastrophe, some startling clues to her own identity, and a man whose view of the world could change the course of her life. Blending flashbacks, dreams, and Native American legends, Animal Dreams is a suspenseful love story and a moving exploration of life's largest commitments. With this work, the acclaimed author of The Bean Trees and Homeland and Other Stories sustains her familiar voice while giving readers her most remarkable book yet.

INvait
This book, like most Kingsolver books, is about many things, but let us just say that it is about a woman finding her place in the world while a tempest of uncertainty swirls around her.

Set in the American Southwest, this novel explores politics, nature, mountains, deserts, abandoned adobe villages set in steep cliff faces, American ladies descended from Spain, Mexican Americans and Native Americans, cockfights, a mining company, polluted rivers, high school teenagers, a younger sister off to help the rural poor in Nicaragua, jealosy, living under the shadow of a super sibling, family ties in a Hispanic dominated Arizona town, a father stricken with dementia, and the ghosts of a mother who died right after childbirth and a daughter who never knew the light of day.

Kingsolver is her laconic, self-deprecating self, her words painting crystal clear images of the people and places her protagonist meets and visits. From a plane high above the desert "Bright backyard swimming pools gleamed like turquoise nuggets."

But Ms. Kingsolver wears her politics on her sleeve, and at times one wonders if one is reading a book of fiction or a political manifesto. It is too bad that revolutions nor socialism work for they are often good ideas.

Still, the local battle against the company mine is victorious, and the Stitch and Bitch club can stop selling their peacock pinatas in Tuscon and go back to more urgent matters, such as sewing and gossiping, or "bitching.'

This is a story, like most Kingsolver novels, about a lot of different things, but mostly it is about a woman named Codi Noline (who discovers het name is actually Nolina) trying, and finding, her place in the world.

Barbara Kingsolver's stories never fail to draw me in. Her characters are deeply human, always real. I find myself at times wishing I knew them outside of the pages. It was the same with Animal Dreams. I felt as if I was right there in Grace, AZ with them all. This book was a very enjoyable read. I might have given it 5 starts but for one issue. Towards the end of the story I felt as if there were missing chapters, as if the author jumped a section or two ahead and there was more to it left untold. Or perhaps I just wished it would continue on and on.

Mrs. Kingsolver doesn't pussyfoot around the complex drama of living. Life is hard and finding and learning to live in your own skin is a tough process for those of us who weren't born with a feeling of belonging to "fill in the blank" a community, a family, or a purpose in life. This book covers the struggles that come with being a child that loses a parent in early childhood, the adult child dealing with the struggles of an elderly parent's failing health and the joys and disappointments shared between sisters.

This book is not an easy read. It's pace is sometimes agonizingly slow but that is what gives you the time to truly contemplate the parallels of all our lives. I am not much for quoting other people but I found myself highlighting several passages to re-read later and possibly quote to a few friends going through hard times.

I would recommend this book to people who appreciate keeping it real in life and literature, although this book and it's characters are fictional..there's a whole lot of "real" to relate too. This book will stay with you long after you have finished it and remind you that even if you struggle alone, you are not alone in struggling.

Sorry, I’m not a Kingsolver fan. It took a whole chapter for the character to walk from the train station to the house! The only chuckle part of that walk was when she confused a peacock with a piñata! All her characters are either depressed, downers or losers.

This was Barbara Kingsolver's third novel, and it shows her great understanding of nature, humanity and how love really is all we need.
The story is about Cosima, a woman struggling to find her place in the world. She returns to her childhood hometown of Grace to live with a friend ands begins to relearn her relationships with her dying father, neighbours, former lover and absent sister.

Codi (as Cosima is known) learns that her sister, Hallie, has signed up to help the Nicaraguan farmers who are living under the threat of U.S.- backed Contra insurgents.
Codi says:'All I want is to be like you,to be brave, to walk into a country of chickens and land mines and call that home, and have it be home. ' - p. 200

Codi's ex-boyfriend from her teenage years, Loyd, reappears and they take up once again. Loyd does not know that Codi was pregnant with his child when she was fifteen, but miscarried and buried the feotus secretly. Loyd is a home loving type of person, who genuinely wants to make a life with Codi, but she is too self-loathing to see it, and plans to move on when the school term ends. Loyd introduces Codi to the Indian pueblos, and landscape:
'The sandstone had been carved by ice ages and polished by desert eons of sandpaper winds. The place did not so much inspire religion as seemed to be religion itself.' - p.210

This book overs so much of what is important and beautiful in the world, it is sad and funny and most of all, meaningful.

Without giving the ending away, Codi goes through a transformation during her Year of Grace. Of the townspeople she says: 'In their eyes my life should have been simple, purely a matter of love and he right wardrobe. It was as if I had fifty mothers.' - p. 311
