Demon Copperhead, by Barbara Kingsolver

Cover of Demon Copperhead, by Barbara Kingsolver.

Equal parts hilarious and heartbreaking. It’s inspired by David Copperfield, which was inspired by Charles Dickens’ experience of institutional poverty. It’s epic at 600 pages, as it takes the reader through Demon’s life in one, long sorrowful moan. But there is always hope.

4/5 Stars
