I decided to read this book after several friends read it and I had heard positive feedback from them about it. Here are my thoughts on it.
The Poisonwood Bible is a well written novel. Barbara Kingsolver does a wonderful job weaving the different story lines and themes in this story together. The characters were well written and the story lines flowed well.
However, for some reason, this book did not hold me. I read it through, but it took me a long time. The book's length did not bother me as I've read several books that are several hundred pages. I just couldn't get into this book.
