Brilliantly written but for me it was a bit boring - the subject was just not my kind of thing. Having said that, the author's ability to paint in words is extraordinary and, although the subject didn't interest me, I absolutely recognize the value of the whole.

I am a Barbara Kingsolver fan. Ever since her first one, Bean Trees, I've read all her books and loved them to varying degrees. Flight Behavior is a worth reading, with true to life country characters like the gutsy Dellarobia. It highlights the mindset divide between scientists, media, and ordinary folk.

The key to the story is monarch butterflies wintering in Appalachia as a result of climate change. But as an artist interested in science, I felt that this fictional shift of migrating monarchs from Mexico to the Appalachians did not function well. Environmental issues are too important to mess around with this way, and the book lost all credibility for me at this point. At the end, the reader thinks, "So what? It's all made up, and the monarchs are not endangered, or are they?" Kingsolver could have taken on a real ecological issue of the region - less spectacular, but true, and less confusing to readers.
Read it for the fine writing, for the characters' growth, for the colorful descriptions, for the activist engagement. And then read Kingsolver's Prodigal Summer for a more realistic and moving book concerning the mountain ecosystem.
