This is a beautiful piece of work describing the changes made with global warming, and how the effects of weather disturb the natural progression of the seasons. As the changes evolve, so does the Turnbow family begin their own evolution. A family entrenched in their beliefs, they move inexorable towards a truth that life must change.
To stay the same in beliefs and work in their own little places in the world does not change the tides of nature. Kingsolver gives us a story full of heart, and heartache, delivering the tribulations of a family in denial and crisis. She uses the advent of beauty to bring out the depth of secrets lodged in a family mired in lies and pain. The truth of nature seems to guide her characters to their own truths, and a healing that is necessary.
Will the migration actually create the ending for these beautiful creatures as well as the end of a family held together by deception?
Flight Behavior is an interesting take on global warming, but it also takes you into the personal lives of a family that has hidden much of their pain and existed in a vacuum of hope that tugs at your heart.
If you enjoy finding the beauty in nature, and the overcoming of personal turmoil, you will enjoy Flight Behavior. The description of events is amazing and beyond the scope of expectation. This would be a great work for a reading group or discussion group.
