    FUERA DE QUICIO por Karen Joy Fowler (Aquila)
    Aquila: I can't really say what links these books in my mind, it's just something about the way they make me feel.

Even though the world in which this story lives is realized in intricate detail, and I have to praise Kingsolver for this, it is a very introspective book. I wanted more character interaction. A lot of the time I felt trapped in Cosima's head, while lots of interesting characters revolved around. The events roll along at a slow pace. It felt a lot like the events that take place in people's lives day to day. Not many are worthy of describing in detail. The threads dealing with Cosima's sister, father, and boyfriend, could still be addressed through more character interaction, because it's the interaction where things get interesting. I wanted more of that and less introspection. ( )

In a letter to Codi, Hallie writes, "'What keeps you going isn't some fine destination but just the road you're on, and the fact that you know how to drive.'" This is not a love story as the back of the book may have you believe. Sure, people fall in and out of love within its pages, but this book is really about understanding oneself amid a lifetime of memories and secrets...the risks we take not only when we cheat ourselves, but when we find ourselves, too. I read this for the first time two years ago to the month, needing it for the same reasons even though I've changed a lot, and this time got even a little more from it (which is why we should all read our favorite books multiple times!). I'm not going into a deeply personal reflection here in a public forum, but I think this is a loving book for people who've got some reckoning to do, spanning the greater good of the social and physical world to the individual soul.

between 4 and 4.5. i think i need to do a reread of all of her work because in my memory this is the one i liked the least and it is *so good* so what does that say about all the others?

i started this book without my full attention, which is too bad, because there's a lot here and it's just so well done, and i'm disappointed in myself for missing some of it.

she's so good. this is beautiful. her language is great. the surface story - about self-perception and fitting in and finding your family and your people, finding yourself in unexpected places and maybe even out of wreckage - is fantastic and enough all on its own. but the book goes so much deeper even than that, and talks (as she always must, and i love her for it) about more global issues. this one is about nicaragua and the contras and how the us government funded them. and the pueblo and navajo and their views on so much, especially their love and respect for the land and history. in contrast, of course, to the white people's view of it.

it took me a little while to get into this but i really think that was just me, and once i did i loved it. except i guess i'm not entirely sure why loyd would have fallen for codi in the first place, but otherwise this was just great.

"Memory is a complicated thing, a relative to truth but not its twin."

"She said, 'You can't let your heart go bad like that, like sour milk. There's always the chance you'll want to use it later.'"

"You learn to read so you can identify the reality in which you live, so that you can become a protagonist of history rather than a spectator."

"Family constellations are fixed things. They don't change just because you've learned the names of the stars." ( )

Barbara Kingsolver is one of an increasing number of American novelists who are trying to rewrite the political, cultural and spiritual relationships between our country's private and public spheres.
