    I do not want to have lunch with Barbara Kingsolver I do not want to sit across the table from this self satisfied woman and have her gently scold me for eating imported world traveler foods, like bananas I also do not want to hear any of her stories about how awesome she and her family are, and how they were able to eat primarily off what they could grow in their backyard, plenty of fresh vegetables or buy from local farmers who are all personal friends, anyway Aren t we cool I don t want to h [...]

    Barbara Kingsolver has long been one of my favorite writers, but this most recent book was a bit of a mixed bag for me The book covers the year she and her family spent eating only food they had either grown themselves or purchased from local farmers personally known to them Kingsolver s skill as a storyteller is undiminished, and there are some wonderful sections as she relates their adventures plotting how to foist some of their bumper zucchini harvest off on unsuspecting neighbors and how the [...]

    This book was one of my big disappointments so far this year, because I went in thinking I d really like it and wound up so unimpressed that I think I actually hated it The premise of the book is an interesting one, so interesting that I called my mother on the way back from the bookstore to tell her all about this new book I just picked up that I thought she d really like Barbara Kingsolver and her family have decided, for various environmental, political, and health reasons, to eat locally for [...]

    Wellrmally I am a Kingsolver fan I like the way she writes simple and straight forward Her stories, both long an short are well done But this book just really pissed me off It s a non fiction account of her back to the land movement with her family The book starts off well and good She describes their reasoning for leaving Tuscon and moving to a farm they inherited She talks about the trials and tribulations of trying to live off of what they can either produce themselves through farming or buy [...]

    Dear Barbara Kingsolver,I m very sorry, but I m abandoning my attempt to read your book Animal, Vegetable, Miracle, which chronicles the year your family spent living on your farm in Virginia attempting to eat only local, sustainable food.I adore your novels And I loved Fast Food Nation and The Omnivore s Dilemma They even made me stop eating fast food, buy organic when I can, and give up most meat.I wanted to love your book I settled in as you scolded me for eating produce that is flown from ha [...]

    I can forgive the obvious shortcommings of this book for three significant reasons First, I believe wholeheartedly that by purchasing as much locally grown made food as possible we can solve our fossil fuel dependency Secondly, by the luck of the draw I can afford to purchase food from the weekly farmer s market And finally, our household is committed to making around 95% of our meals from scratch, which started as a response to our collective allergies nondairy, meat eaters but like the Kingsol [...]

    This books is not AT ALL in my normal wheelhouse, and I m still scratching my head as to why I suddenly felt impelled to order it on and read it It s non fiction, which, nothing against non fiction, but again, not a genre I normally go out and buy I might read non fiction if it s a gift, or library book freebie, or it s our book club monthly read, but otherwise, not very likely.Also it s a whole book about the author s family s year long culinary adventure of eating exclusively natural and organ [...]

    This book gave me desires Deep dark desires forrdening And making my own cheese And doing things from scratch And doing them now.The thing is, these are all things I have aspirations to do anyway, but my way is rather slower than the way Barbara Kingsolver and her family approached trying to eat locally for a year I m trying to make small, long term changes, one at a time, hopefully in a way that I ll stick to it But it was fun to read about someone else s experiment, in mostly non preachy tone [...]

    You have to read this book Not just because it conveys an important message about the sustainability and environmental impact of our foodways Not just because its Year in Provence style charm makes Appalachia sound as alluring as the French or Italian countryside no euros required But mostly because this is beautiful, tightly strung writing about food and what it means to nourish ourselves If you ve read a certain amount of writing on food you know, sweet and delicious though it may be, that it [...]

    I have to admit that I have a real love hate relationship with this book.On one hand, when the author sticks to the actual practicalities and stories of what it took to live on local food only for a year such as the hilarity of turkey sex, the pets vs food dilemma or the aggravation that a zucchini crop can cause, it is a thoroughly enjoyable read On the other hand, when she goes the route of moralizing and fear mongering about the environment and public health, and stoops to the typical America [...]

    I had a hard time putting this down once I d started and once I d finished I wanted to give up NYC life and move to the country to be an organic farmer I m hardly joking.Anyone who eats and especially those who eat without thinking about where their food comes from should read this book Not only is it informative and a bit scary though she doesn t present anything terribly new or earth shattering to those of us who have read things like Fast Food Nation or Portrait of a Burger as a Young Calf , [...]

    3.5 It wasn t that I didn t like this book I found Kingsolver s message far palatable as non fiction, rather than using her fiction as a soapbox I do think if I ever finish this book, I ll agree with a lot of Kingsolver s conclusions.She is my sister s favourite author, so I gave Trish this book last night If I don t get it back or can t get the book from another source I will move it on to my dnf shelf.Edit 29 11 16 This book is preaching to the converted with me Still don t feel any desire to [...]

    My favorite cameo of all times from The Simpsons features Ed Begley Jr with a non polluting car that runs on his own sense of self satisfaction As I read this book, I couldn t help remembering that scene Is Barbara Kingsolver a talented writer Undoubtedly Her descriptions of food are wonderful, and she makes her life on the farm sound idyllic, although she is realistic about the work involved However, throughout it all,the undercurrent of self satisfaction makes it hard to take It s a pity, too, [...]

    I have liked Kingsolver s books in the past and I am easily obsessed with sustainable farming living eating issues So, why didn t I love this book Several reasons Preachy, preachy, preachy Yowsers, if I wanted to be depressed I d watch daytime TV, not read a book It s a lot of doom and gloom, particularly from Kingsolver s husband uber downer Self righteous, Party of Four She and her family spend a lot of time planting seeds, celebrating food, pointing fingers, and patting themselves on the back [...]

    I was so excited to finally get my hands on this fantastic story about one family s year long experiment in growing raising most of their own food I love reading about people who think differently, act differently and live differently than the norm I think the grow your own philosophy of this family is extreme for our culture but I am so attracted to it because it s a life lived with intention and deep conviction In comparison I found our own family s efforts in supporting our local agriculture [...]

    I read this Then I gave it my sister, then she gave it to a friend Where it went from then I don t know, but I am reasonably confident that this book was of no practical use to any of us.I m tempted to say that everybody is haunted by the dream of the good life, when your eyes glaze over and you dream of escaping trouble and woe for a better way of living, but I m probably just projecting my own state of mind here Certainly though I can sympathise with the position that Barbara Kingsolver found [...]

    If you have ever grown asparagus, thought about growing asparagus or picked wild asparagus, you will enjoy the Waiting for Asparagus chapter If you adore heirloom tomatoes that have a limited season, taste like real tomatoes, and probably have to be bought at your local farmers market, you will enjoy the chapter Springing Forward where you will not only read about heirloom seeds and their ilk, but also hear the author rant about genetically modified and hybrid corn and soybeans that have been de [...]

    First, I want to confess that I didn t finish this book I couldn t So there are about thirty pages at the end that I cannot account for, but I seriously doubt that they saved this book from where it had already been, and frankly I was too angered and frustrated to find out.My two major complaints are these 1 Kingsolver and her husband and older daughter whose interludes are also included are incredibly smug about the entire process All the descriptions of what they are doing are terribly self co [...]

    I received this book in the mail as a recommendation from my dear friend Fievel The kind gesture was much appreciated.I initially found myself enjoying this book, though I struggled with Kingsolver s assertion that anyone of any income level could participate in her locavore eating local and organic diet Putting aside Kingsolver s complete disregard for her privilege, I was intrigued by her tales of gardening and interested in some of her recipes However, Kingsolver totally lost me when she bega [...]

    I give this book 5 stars because its cause is very close to my heart It is an excellent primer for sustainable, local food sourcing it provides a good overview of the issues including problems faced by small farms and the many dangers to global food supply and health posed by the industrial food complex and a plan for gradually incorporating local and sustainable foods into your life small steps, recipes, food plans, resources for learning , and advice for approaching farmer s markets, CSAs, and [...]

    Bullet Review A good message with some beautiful writing, though Kingsolver and her daughter, Camille, can adopt a rather preachy, self important tone And I m sorry, but I ve never encountered the farmer stigma that apparently runs rampant over the US.5 stars for content 2 stars for delivery.Full Review If every US citizen ate just one meal a week any meal composed of locally and organically raised meats and produce, we would reduce our country s oil consumption by over 1.1 million barrels of oi [...]

    Although I didn t plan it, Animal, Vegetable, Miracle seemed like the perfect book to be reading close to Earth Day Barbara Kingsolver, her husband Steven Hopp, and their children Camille Kingsolver and Lily Hopp moved from Arizona to live at their farm in Southern Appalachia Virginia Their goal was to spend one year as locavores eating local, organic food by growing it themselves and buying it at farmers markets In addition to harvesting their gardens and orchards, they raised chickens and turk [...]

    This book is good, in spite of it s lower rating It loses two stars for two and a half things 1 It is a little slow Kingsolver is one of the best living writers of fiction, so she has a high standard that she can t quite live up to in this book My theory is that she is too involved in it The same talent that allows her to write amazing pieces of fiction detract from her nonfiction in that she just knows too much detail and feels too passionately about what she is talking about Not that I have an [...]

    I wanted to like this book I expected to like this book And I did like it I liked about a third of it, to be exact.In this book, Barbara Kingsolver is preaching to the choir as far as I m concerned I agree with the importance of local, sustainable eating That s one of the big reasons I expected to like this But let s go back to that word preaching I used it advisedly, because, wow, does she She spends at least a third of her own part of the book preaching, using a tone anyone who has spent any t [...]

    This is an excellent read The language, spelling and grammar are highly professional, a joy to read.Barbara and her husband and daughters decided to embark on a year of growing their own food, raising their own poultry and buying local food from farmers To this end they moved from their Arizona home to their country vacation home in the Appalachian mountains of southwest Virginia They had prepared, of course, by renovating the house and outbuildings, planting asparagus beds and The hopeful and [...]

    I have always been a fan of Barbara Kingsolver s work her novels have a comfortable quality to them that makes me return a few times except for Prodigal Summer, which I really didn t care much for But once I discovered her nonfiction, my world changed She was the first creative nonfiction writer who caught my eye and made me laugh, cry, and feel enraged Had I not read her work, I doubt I ever would have been interested in writing creative nonfiction to begin with I tell you all of this so that y [...]

    Good Reads is becoming the place I write what I thought what a book was going to be about and then either come back disappointed or pleasantly surprised.In this case, it s mild disappointment When I heard about this book and read the review, I thought it would be like a diary A multi person diary about difficulties, triumphs, and oddities of a family living as locavores for a year Kingsolver and family move to their Virginia farm with the intention of eating local for a full year They have to s [...]

    Naomi Blackburn
    My true GR rating 0 5 starsTo call this book a trifling piece of trash is, in my opinion, giving it too much credit This book could have been excellent given the premise of the book Instead what we get is the author, her husband and her daughter, bloviating at how much America and Americans suck Europe is so much better.d the list goes on Just your typical leftist bookShe could not even look out for other research to support her claims Instead, we are subjected to the ramblings of her professor [...]

    Amy Formanski Duffy
    It took me awhile to get through this one but it was worth it Barbara Kingsolver is respected novelist and essayist, but to my knowledge this is her first full length nonfiction book She describes her family s first year of moving to a farm in Virginia and trying to grow as much of their own food as possible They raised their own chickens and turkeys Anything else that they couldn t grow themselves, they bought from other local farmers The idea first seemed extreme even to me, a liberal, healthy [...]
