Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blends fiction and history seamlessly I loved The Lacuna, the richness and variety of the geographic and time span of the story, and the twist at the end! Loved the integration of real people and their stories alongside the fictional events.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Lacuna I have been a long-time fan of Barbara Kingsolver, and I was so happy that this book did not disappoint. Although I did find the beginning a bit of a slog, I was glad that I stuck it through. The story is so detailed, you feel immersed in the life of Harrison Shepherd and the mix of Mexican culture, geography, and politics at a very tumultuous time. As a fan of the intriguing Frida Kahlo I was so curious to see how Shepherd's life would mesh with theirs. I worried it would feel forced and false, but to me it was like Frida, Diego, Trotsky, and all those surrounding her were characters from Kingsolver's imagination, they blended so seamlessly into the narrative. Her ability to blend history and fiction is wonderful. To be cliche, I couldn't put it down. The ending was magnificent and soaring and heartbreaking. Since becoming hooked by the Poisonwood Bible I always look forward to another Kingsolver book; this one was worth the wait! Stick with it if you find it a bit dense to start; you will be glad you did.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from You feel like you are there. Intelligently written. Beautiful descriptions, you feel like you are there. Type of book you can put down for awhile, do other things, but you want to come back to find out what happens to Harrison (Soli). Without ruining it for you. The era was harsh for those who were perceived to have the "wrong" connections. A whisper from the powers who be at that time, could set up the destruction of a persons life. The story is his life. It will be a book I pass along to friends to read.
