    Another favorite. Gifted writing, truly original characters, fascinating subject. I highly recommend, as I would all of Kingsolver's novels

      The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver, one of my favorite books and one of my favorite authors.

      The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver. My imaginary book club spends a lot of time reading Barbara Kingsolver and this is at the top of the list. OK, aside from the ending, which I can hardly type without tears landing on the keyboard, how can a person pick a favorite character? Also, the cake mixes.

    • Anne Heminger

      The Poinsonwood Bible - my absolute favorite Barbara Kingsolver novel. Highly recommended. If you've never read one of her books, start with this one to appreciate her acclaimed writing gifts.

    • Julia Benedict

      Barbara Kingsolver is one of my favorite authors - The Poisonwood Bible is written from the perspective of the 4 daughters of a Baptist preacher who has taken them to the Congo in 1958 as missionaries...a must read that you will return to again and again
