Description

Barbara Kingsolver has written these five short stories with the same wit and sensitivity that characterize her highly praised and beloved novels Animal Dreams and The Bean Trees. Spreading her characters over a variety of colorful landscapes, she tells stories of hope, momentary joy, and powerful endurance. In every setting, her distinctive voice, at times comic, but often heartrending, rings true as she explores the twin themes of family ties and the life choices one must ultimately make alone.

This collection includes:

  • "Homeland"
  • "Blueprints"
  • "Quality Time"
  • "Extinctions"
  • "Rose-Johnny"

Commentaires

abridged version

The stories in Homeland are absolutely wonderful. I had read this book many years ago and purchased the audible because I wanted to hear the author read the stories in her own voice. I was disappointed to find that some of the stories were missing from this version. I was so looking forward to hearing one I believe is called "Bereaved Apartments." it is not there. Sadly.

Another great book by Kingsolver!

Barbara Kingsolver narrates this book herself and it was very enjoyable to listen to her. The stories are only about 45 minutes in length so great short listens for busy people who don't have the time to get into a long novel.

Great short stories

Loved the stories and the reading. Only complaint is that it felt like some of them ended abruptly, and the next one started too quickly. I was involved with the characters in one story, and then suddenly their story was over and the next one had begun. A couple of times I found myself pausing the recording to digest a story before continuing to the next one. But over all, it was excellent. I am a Barbara Kingsolver fan, but had never heard of this book, great surprise.

Great collection of stories.

This collection carried me to many diverse worlds and times, which is exactly what I have come to expect from Ms Kingsolver. Her voice brought the stories to life in a way far different than the printed page can. She makes you think hard about things and makes you want to be a better person.
