La Cuna

Wonderful book. Moving, uplifting, smart. Love how it flows through time and cultures. Lush language, startling twists and turns.

Worth reading

This book replaces 'The Bean Trees' as my favorite Kingsolver book. It was the first book I have read in a long time that was more then a distraction for my train ride to work; I stayed up all night unable to put it down. Mrs. Kingsolver has a way of story telling that is unique to mainstream authors... If a friend asked me what the story was about, I have no way of answering that does any justice to the way she tells a story... "it's a life story of a boy that goes diving and grows up to work for diego and frida, then goes on to be a writer". It should be read by all, you won't regret buying this book

Boring, no pace, no story

I gave up on this book after the first two chapters. There is nothing here that will keep you interested: boorish and stereotypes that you won’t give a cr@p about—from the Indians, hacienda owner, money grubbing mother...the writing is just plain awful and pretentious.
