Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

“Drawing on both her Appalachian roots and her background in biology, Kingsolver delivers a passionate novel on the effects of global warming.” (Booklist, Starred Review)

“With her powerful new novel, Kingsolver delivers literary fiction that conveys an urgent social message… a clarion call about climate change, too lucid and vivid for even skeptics to ignore.” (Publishers Weekly, Starred Review)

“…Enthralling…Dellarobia is appealingly complex as a smart, curious, warmhearted woman desperate to-no resisting the metaphor here-trade her cocoon for wings.” (Oprah.com)

“A dazzling page-turner” (Elle)

“Kingsolver has written one of the more thoughtful novels about the scientific, financial and psychological intricacies of climate change. And her ability to put these silent, breathtakingly beautiful butterflies at the center of this calamitous and noisy debate is nothing short of brilliant.” (Ron Charles, Washington Post)

“Dellarobia is a smart, fierce, messy woman, and one can’t help rooting for her to find her wings.” (Entertainment Weekly)

“Dellarobia is appealingly complex as a smart, curious, warmhearted woman desperate to-no resisting the metaphor here-trade her cocoon for wings.” (O, the Oprah Magazine)

“One of the gifts of a Kingsolver novel is the resplendence of her prose. She takes palpable pleasure in the craft of writing, creating images that stay with the reader long after her story is done…(a) majestic and brave new novel.” (New York Times Book Review)

“Kingsolver has constructed a deeply affecting microcosm of a phenomenon that is manifesting in many different tragic ways, in communities and ecosystems all around the globe. This is a fine and complex novel.” (Seattle Times)

“So captivating is this grand, suspenseful plot and the many subplots rising and falling beneath it that it takes some time before we realize what this story is really about -- climate change.” (Minneapolis Star Tribune)

“Spirituality, a troubled marriage, global warming…Kingsolver’s latest is a bold mélange, but it works.” (People)

“Kingsolver is a storyteller first and foremost, as sensitive to human interactions and family dynamics as she is to ecological ones.” (NPR)

“a delicate symbiosis between the sacred and the scientific in this richly rewarding novel that will both entertain and incite its readers.” (BookPage)

“FLIGHT BEHAVIOR is a book worth reading twice? first for the intricacies of character, second for the dense, beautiful language Kingsolver puts on the page. She’s a keen observer of the messiness and unexpected beauty of the quotidian.” (Cleveland Plain Dealer)

“By the end of FLIGHT BEHAVIOR, it’s clear that Kingsolver’s passionate voice and her ability to portray the fragility of the natural world, and why we should care about it, are as strong as ever.” (San Francisco Chronicle)

“Novelists like Kingsolver have a particular knack for making us empathize with lives that may bear little resemblance to our own…What lifts FLIGHT BEHAVIOR…is not just Kingsolver’s nuanced and funny prose; it’s Dellarobia’s awakening to the possibilities around her.” (Julia Ingalls, Salon)

“FLIGHT BEHAVIOR is a terrifically entertaining read about a spirited young woman you’ll miss the minute you reach the last page.” (USA Today)

“Marvelous…This is fiction rich in empathy, wit and science. Like the butterflies that astonish Feathertown, Kingsolvian gifts are ‘fierce and wondrous,’ ‘colors moving around like fire.’” (New York Times)

“[Kingsolver’s] keen grasp of delicate ecosystems-both social and natural-keeps the story convincing and compelling.” (The New Yorker)

Présentation de l'éditeur

"The flames now appeared to lift from individual treetops in showers of orange sparks, exploding the way a pine log does in a campfire when it is poked. The sparks spiralled upward in swirls like funnel clouds. Twisters of brightness against grey sky."

On the Appalachian Mountains above her home, a young mother discovers a beautiful and terrible marvel of nature: the monarch butterflies have not migrated south for the winter this year. Is this a miraculous message from God, or a spectacular sign of climate change. Entomology expert, Ovid Byron, certainly believes it is the latter. He ropes in Dellarobia to help him decode the mystery of the monarch butterflies.

Flight Behaviour has featured on the NY Times bestseller list and is Barbara Kingsolver's most accessible novel yet.

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.

Ce livre est une excellente fable écologique qui, indépendamment de l'effet du climat sur le comportement migratoire du papillon monarque, pose d'énormes questions sur l'inné et l'acquis. La route et les programmes de migration sont-ils inscrits dans les gènes de l'insecte? S'y rajoutent des petites histoires locales de frustrations sexuelles, familiales, religieuses, et d'amourettes typiquement américaines plus lassantes pour des européens.

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.
