Homeland and Other Stories offers comic, often heart-warming but always true to life tales told as only the author can, creating a world of love and possibility that listeners will want to take as their own.

    This collection of stories made for interesting reading but I don't think they will stick with me at all. I seem to prefer Kingsolver's novels. I read these stories one at a time over the course of several weeks. They are rather gloomy or something like that and one at a time was manageable. Several stories underwhelmed me, and several I thought were very good, like the one about the woman and the mine strike.

    I like the children narrative that most of these stories adopt, and also, most of these stories revolving around children discovering the social injustice in the world, and question them. I enjoy the small town, nature settings and how the story is full and complete, instead of just a snap-shot of something bigger.

    Barbara Kingsolver is my favorite author. Even though her short stories aren’t as strong as her novels, they are evocative and make you wish for more.
  • (5/5)
    Calming stories of largely rural life told by a master storyteller.
  • (3/5)
    Mixed bag. I think Kingsolver is a better novelist than a short story writer. A number of these stories are brief glimpses of ordinary people's lives, with no great insight, tales of how much we love someone despite disagreements."Homeland" was great: told by a young girl, remembering her Indian grandma, learning the right way to act. GranMam's reaction to the trip to Cherokee is telling."Bereaved Apartments" is a good study of what dishonesties we are willing to close our eyes to, and a sympathetic portrait of an ex-con young woman."Jump-Up Day" is an interesting story about an orphan in the Caribbean who meets up with an obeah man.u"Why I Am A Danger To The Public" tells of a woman strike leader, and how the corporation treats the workers with contempt.

    I love everything by Babara Kingsolver and this was no exception!
  • (4/5)
    some wonderful stories inside this book. very strong mother theme.
  • (4/5)
    Not as good as her novels but, like her longer works believable stories about real people. In some ways these stories remind me of Steinbeck's short stories.
