    Animal Vegetable Miracle A Year of Food Life [E–pub/Kindle] 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

Animal Vegetable Miracle A Year of Food Life

REVIEW Õ Animal Vegetable Miracle A Year of Food Life Author Barbara Kingsolver and her family abandoned the industrial food pipeline to live a rural life vowing that for one year they'd on. 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 hear any about how her family is doing their part to stop global warming by reducing food processing and transportation costs and now they all managed to do it without fighting Who are these people Everybody gets home from work or school and has to go garden until dark every freaking day and there s no fighting There s no salmon or packaged cookies or Cheetos and there s still no fighting Even though some members of the family are 17 and like 10 What I wanted most of all was to hear the stories about how she caught her daughter hiding Little Debbie under the bed or how her teenager was too embarrassed to bring her friends over without soda to offer them But nooooo No such humanizing details Some small bumps in the road such as when the teenager craves fresh fruit in early spring but none is in season But a ha easily solved with rhubarb from the farmer s market Give me a break This is cheating the readers It had to have been interesting than this But that aside it actually was pretty interesting She s a wonderful writer and much of the information and storytelling was totally fascinating I will be thinking about this book for a long time and it really has inspired me to pay attention to local growing seasons although in California I guess we re a little spoiled and do shopping at farmer s markets and cook and perhaps even grow my own tomatoesheirloom of course I just don t want to hang out with Barbara Kingsolver Ever Unless she s prepared to talk about what really went down L'Islam pour les Nuls poche (Poche pour les nuls) pipeline to live a rural life vowing that for one year they'd on. 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 Histoire du Proche-Orient contemporain (Repères t. 654) primarily off what they could grow in their backyard Dr. Saoud et Mr. Djihad (Le monde comme il va) plenty of fresh vegetables or buy from local farmers who are all Histoire du Moyen-Orient (Poches essais t. 266) processing and transportation costs and now they all managed to do it without fighting Who are these LIslam Pour les nuls people Everybody gets home from work or school and has to go garden until dark every freaking day and there s no fighting There s no salmon or La question de Palestine (Divers Histoire) packaged cookies or Cheetos and there s still no fighting Even though some members of the family are 17 and like 10 What I wanted most of all was to hear the stories about how she caught her daughter hiding Little Debbie under the bed or how her teenager was too embarrassed to bring her friends over without soda to offer them But nooooo No such humanizing details Some small bumps in the road such as when the teenager craves fresh fruit in early spring but none is in season But a ha easily solved with rhubarb from the farmer s market Give me a break This is cheating the readers It had to have been interesting than this But that aside it actually was Les Femmes du prophète (Romans français (H.C.)) pretty interesting She s a wonderful writer and much of the information and storytelling was totally fascinating I will be thinking about this book for a long time and it really has inspired me to

REVIEW Animal Vegetable Miracle A Year of Food Life

REVIEW Õ Animal Vegetable Miracle A Year of Food Life Ly buy food raised in their own neighborhood grow it themselves or learn to live without it Part memoir part journalistic investigation. Wellnormally 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 locally Each family member is only allowed one luxury item This consists of foodstuffs that can t be produced at home or bought locally It s a bit over the top if you ask me but I suppose an interesting addition to their overall movement Kingsolver makes a lot of good points about eating what s in season and offers some handy recipes However about mid way through the book her passion and reflections take an unfortunate turn to absolute preachiness She writes as if our understanding of the food chain stops at our understanding of how to open a bag of Doritos She proceeds to slam vegetarians apparently we do not get the concept of family farming because if we did we would eat locally raised animals She also looks down her nose at those who shop at supermarkets for food apparently people who think we are doing good by purchasing organic items are really not Ditto for those who use recycled paper towels I guess her family makes their own She gets on a high horse about of all things canning She maintains that us city folk could feed ourselves off the land year round if we would only can the fruits and vegetables we buy at the farmer s market in the summer and store them in our pantry Perhaps if Barbara went to a real NYC apartment and not just those of her publisher and editor she would realize that most of us if we are lucky have a broom closet and 2 cabinets If only I would be selfless enough to keep my clothes on my fire escape I guess what made me the maddest about this reading experience is that I really like Kingsolver as an author and was looking forward to her take on living off the land I also liked the premise of this particular book It reminded me of a book my father in law wrote years and years ago only this one is a hell of a lot less funny We all have a responsibility to conserve and be aware of our impact But her assumption that we re all bumbling idiots just threw me over the edge Too bad I hope her next piece is fiction
