Demon Copperhead
Demon Copperhead: A Novel | Barbara Kingsolver
Kingsolver is a writer who can help us understand and navigate the chaos of these times. Minneapolis Star Tribune From the New York Times bestselling author of Unsheltered and Flight Behavior, a brilliant novel which enthralls, compels, and captures the heart as it evokes a young heros unforgettable journey to maturity. Anyone will tell you the born of this world are marked from the get-out, win or lose. Demon Copperhead is set in the mountains of southern Appalachia. Its the story of a boy born to a teenaged single mother in a single-wide trailer, with no assets beyond his dead fathers good looks and copper-colored hair, a caustic wit, and a fierce talent for survival. In a plot that never pauses for breath, relayed in his own unsparing voice, he braves the modern perils of foster care, child labor, derelict schools, athletic success, addiction, disastrous loves, and crushing losses. Through all of it, he reckons with his own invisibility in a popular culture where even the superheroes have abandoned rural people in favor of cities. Many generations ago, Charles Dickens wrote David Copperfield from his experience as a survivor of institutional poverty and its damages to children in his society. Those problems have yet to be solved in ours. Dickens is not a prerequisite for readers of this novel, but he provided its inspiration. In transposing a Victorian epic novel to the contemporary American South, Barbara Kingsolver enlists Dickens anger and compassion, and above all, his faith in the transformative powers of a good story. Demon Copperhead speaks for a new generation of lost boys, and all those born into beautiful, cursed places they cant imagine leaving behind.

A hard, hard read, but good. If the narrator hadn't been so dissociated from the experiences throughout his entire young life, I don't know if I could have hung on to the end. Fictional, yes, but every single problematic, traumatic, thing this kid went through is what too many have experienced. The accolades for this book are well-deserved.

This audiobook was forever, but omg, it was soooo worth the time. A 5☆ plus. Demon is the narrator, his life set in Lee Conty VA. This is the tale of a boy who really never had a chance, stuck in impossible situations than no child should have to endure. A story of living in a place the world has forgotten⬇️

Crazeedi There's so much to digest, hardship unimaginable, social services that treat children like dirt, addictions galore, and how a boy survives the daily beat down 2w

A heart wrenching account of the care system during the height of the opioid scandal. Likeable, complex, full of heart & shame Demon is an engaging character that carried the story in tense fever pitch mode for 500+ pgs. As a reworking of David Copperfield it is a genius novel of powerful themes, questions around social justice & fate, but even if you put that genius aside the story is brilliant & Lee County will stay with you for along time.

Very important poll:
Do you use this expression - Holy Roller - and if so, where did you grow up?
I really thought this was specific just to my childhood, and was gobsmacked to find it in a Women‘s Prize winning novel.

Chrissyreadit it was commonly used for people who used a specific way of worship- i think Born Again Christian‘s - 1mo
vivastory I grew up in the midwest. It was a very common expression (along with “bible thumper“). I don't hear the latter too often anymore, but holy roller is not uncommon even in metropolitan KC 1mo
MelAnn In the Texas Panhandle growing up I heard this expression a lot. 1mo
See All 9 Comments
CatLass007 I grew up in West Virginia. My Dad used the expression to describe overly religious people. If you‘ve ever read the book MASH, Duke used the term to describe one of the chaplains they‘d dubbed “Shakin‘ Sammy.” 1mo
JamieArc Yes, definitely. Growing up in evangelical churches, this was a term heard frequently enough. 1mo
JamieArc One of the things I liked about this book were very specific cultural references. Among them, the trend to do a zig zag part for girls in the 90s. That one hit home 😂 1mo
eraderneely @Chrissyreadit @vivastory @MelAnn @CatLass007 @JamieArc thanks for giving me more context. So interesting to learn that this expression is from a wider area than just WV. 1mo

I held off reading this knowing it would be selected for my ‘24 my IRL bookclub, and it was! It sits heavy on my heart and maybe this is why… It had the flow of a depression era coming of age story, but Demon is a millennial. Somehow, this telling makes generational poverty and the near impossibility of avoiding or overcoming drug addiction nearly impossible. I rooted for Demon from beginning to end.

My favorite 2023 reads! 📚

I read a total of 30 books this year. This is the fifth year in a row that I haven‘t met my reading goal, but that‘s okay. I still enjoy reading, which is the most important thing, and it‘s my favorite past time. My almost 2-year-old seems to enjoy books and reading just as much as me, which makes my heart so happy ❤️

But I have feeling 2024 is my year, and I might just meet my goal again!

ChaoticMissAdventures I always like to say it isn't the number but the quality. As long as you are picking up books you love to read you are winning! And 30 is so much more than most people. That is over 2 a month! Some people don't read 2 a year 2mo

My best read of April? Well, define "best"?

On the one hand, Demon Copperhead was the best book I read - story, style, substance, craft, heart all beautifully wrought.

On the other hand, Janet stole my heart completely.

I refuse to choose between them.

The falls were a tame trickle and the pool itself a deep, easy blue. Taking art classes on repeat, you learn a lot about color, but I can‘t explain that blue. My eye kept going back to the turquoise middle. You so rarely see that, but children will color water that way every time, given the right choice of crayons.

An Appalachian take on "David Copperfield"? I'm not familiar with either so can't speak to that. I can say it's a damn good read (no surprises there)! The fact it's told from Demon's POV makes BK's tendency to preach less of an irritant than in some of her other books. I'd heard the words "opioid crisis" before but had no idea of the scale (or source) of the problem: that was an eye-opener! My heart hurt for Demon and his folk. Nicely done, BK!

Finished this one! Took me a while to read, I found myself only being able to take in a little at a time. This was a modernized retelling of Charles Dickens‘ David Copperfield. Demon is born to a teenage mother struggling with drug addiction, and later takes you on his journey through foster care. His whole existence is based on survival. It was beautifully written. I found the aspects of opioid addiction and institutional poverty devastating.

A pick but it will break your heart over and over. Kingsolvers writing is so amazing . You can‘t help but root for Damon Fields doing the best he can while losing his mom , evil foster parents & sinister adults , grinding poverty & addiction in Appalachia. There is some light by the ending, her writing about addiction & treatment so accurate as to be triggering.Still, very glad I read it. Quite a novel!

Wasn‘t sure how to rate this one bc, tbh, I didn‘t finish it. Wasn‘t a bail per se- I ran outta time with the library. But that is such a rare occasion that I can‘t help blame it a little on the book itself. It was good, and something I‘d usually go for, but probably the wrong time for it…the story was rly bringing me down and just didn‘t feel worth it. I‘d like to get back to it sometime, maybe when the waitlist is not so long.

fredthemoose I‘m not sure how far in you got, but I almost bailed in the middle when it just kept getting more and more traumatic, and then it shifted and didn‘t get happy but it stabilized and had some good to go with the bad. If you were in that rough patch it might be worth another try if the mood strikes in the future! 5mo

Kingsolver makes you stick in there, and really SEE without making you feel preached at. After my trip to WV this summer where “Foster Parents Needed” signs were everywhere I wish everyone could read this book with an open heart.
