Review: The Poisonwood Bible

User Review  - Jeff Bottrell - Goodreads

This was a very interesting, wildly ambitious, messy read. Either 200 pages too long or 400 pages too short, depending on how much the reader feels the "after Africa" plot elements add or detract from ... Read full review

3.5 This book took me a long time to finish because I got distracted by other things, but not because it wasn't interesting or attention grabbing. Overall, It wasn't my favorite book but it was one ... Read full review

User Review  - Kari Scare - Goodreads

This book could be subtitled "How Not to be a Missionary in Africa." Not sure if it's historically accurate, but worth reading for that alone if it is. Have some pick-me-ups ready, because this book is quite a downer. Definitely worth reading but kind of depressing. Read full review

User Review  - Sydney - Goodreads

I am 13 and just finished this book. It was a little mature for me, and I recommend waiting until you are a little older to read this. It was long, and pretty slow. It took me while to finish because I wasn't very interested in the theme. Read full review

Review: The Poisonwood Bible

User Review  - Dawn - Goodreads

It is hard to even know where to start with this book. It is a book I would have never read, if it weren't a book club pick. I drug myself through the first 300 pages, grumbling to myself that no book ... Read full review
