Animal Dreams
Animal Dreams | Barbara Kingsolver
"Animals dream about the things they do in the day time just like people do. If you want sweet dreams, you've got to live a sweet life." So says Loyd Peregrina, a handsome Apache trainman and latter-day philosopher. But when Codi Noline returns to her hometown, Loyd's advice is painfully out of her reach. Dreamless and at the end of her rope, Codi comes back to Grace, Arizona to confront her past and face her ailing, distant father. What the finds is a town threatened by a silent environmental catastrophe, some startling clues to her own identity, and a man whose view of the world could change the course of her life. Blending flashbacks, dreams, and Native American legends, Animal Dreams is a suspenseful love story and a moving exploration of life's largest commitments. With this work, the acclaimed author of The Bean Trees and Homeland and Other Stories sustains her familiar voice while giving readers her most remarkable book yet.

#31bookpics These are the tiny #shelves in my bedroom- I think they were made by my Grandad when my mum was little. They're small enough to justify a bit of rainbow filing, but a bit too small to have anything but the tiniest paperbacks shelved upright!

Nice story, well written and covering some interesting topics. Not mind blowing though and I doubt it'll stay with me.

1. Leia
2. Objectively Best? 10. My Doctor, always? 11. And nope, I‘m not sorry.
3. Team Daenerys, not Khaleesi.
4. #3. I like my plot lines resolved.
5. Tie between Animal and the Swedish Chef.

What keeps you going isn‘t some fine destination but just the road you‘re on, and the fact you know how to drive. You keep your eyes open, and you see this damned-to-hell world you got born into, and you ask yourself, “What life can I live that will let me breathe in & out and love somebody or something and not run off screaming into the woods?”

RaimeyGallant Nice quote. :) 2y

This book is really good, but um... This is a high school teacher talking to her student in front of the rest of the class.

CSeydel I had a teacher like that. Nothing quite as unsettling as a teacher who thinks she‘s still one of the teenagers. Ugh 2y

Animal #Dreams was my first Barbara Kingsolver many years ago. Poisonwood Bible is still my favorite, but I loved them all. Hubs & I lucky to pass through Meadowview, VA last week and ate at her farm-to-table Harvest Table Restaurant. He had this lamb sausage pizza & mushroom soup. I had local trout with Carolina Gold rice & greens. All so yum! #dinnerandabook #ReadingResolutions @Jess7

My very tall currently #reading (Animal Dreams and Zen) and #TBR pile. Zen has been slow going, but I only have about 100 pages left. I‘m super excited to read all of these, so I wish I could spend all my time reading instead of dealing with life! 😜 #nowreading #librarybooks #libraryhaul #bookhaul #bookstack

I went through a BK obsession during my 20s, and I think Animal Dreams may be my fave. The story is framed by her little Arizona town's All Soul's Day celebration (with a Day of the Dead chapter in the middle). You can also tell the period of my life I read certain books because I frequented this certain Chinese restaurant on my lunch break and would tape the fortunes to the inside cover. 😂😂 #AllHallowsRead

The very least you can do in your life is figure out what you hope for. And the most you can do is live inside that hope. Not admire it from a distance but live right in it, under its roof.

#FunFridayPhoto My #mostrecommended books by far are all by Barbara Kingsolver. Start with The Bean Trees and go chronologically to see her writing style evolve. I will never not love her.

This one was recommended to me by my mother, as many books that I read are. She devoured this one, so I look really forward to getting into it.
