Every spring I feel the need to plant something, but since I live in a small city apartment, but gardening urges are largely confined to a small windowsill herb garden. It was in the prime of my gardening urges that i picked up Animal, Vegetable, MIracle and it was perfect timing. Though I've yet to read any of Kingsolver's fiction, I really enjoyed this non-fiction work about her family's decision to spend a year acting locally, mostly food from their own Virgina farm. In addition to Kingsolver's main narrative about the benefits and struggles of growing almost all of one's own food, the book is supplimented by factual sidebars written by her husband Stephen , and recipes and perspective essays by her 18-year-old daughter Camille, who left for college midway through the experiement. Though I'm unable to start a farm at this time (though I have dreams of having my own little chicken farm), the book has changed the way I look at food for the better. Even if I'm unable to impliment many of their suggestions. A worthy read that I will readily purchase (I got my copy from the Library) and read again in the future.
I wasn't sure if I was going to like this book, but it really started to come together in the middle of the story. It was fun to read the trivia questions embedded in the novel as well. Come to find out, I'm not really very smart. Oh well.
