Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver
Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver
5.0 out of 5 stars --, Feb. 22 2000
"Imagine a ruin so strange it must never have happened" -- so begins Barbara Kingsolver's immense and wonderful Poisonwood Bible. Ms. Kingsolver has said that "Your first sentence should make a promise that the rest of the [work] keeps." She keeps her promise. I can not say enough good things about this book. Ms. Kingsolver has given us a book that buries itself inside your humanity and vibrates there long after you've finished. Simply, this one will make you a better person.
