I liked the differences in voice and point of view from different characters. It made for very interesting and sometimes funny reading. It does make you stop and thing about all that we take for granted and whether we are better off or not.

If you've read any of my other reviews, you will have noticed that I mention a couple of books, ie The Nanny Diaries, as an "in between" book. As I've mentioned, I keep a stack of "light reading" like ... Read full review

Poisonwood Bible is vividly written with rich description, although I found one of the key characters, the preacher father, lacking. Fundamentalist missionary Nathan Price takes his wife and four ... Read full review

I could see why people are mad about this either by hating or by loving it. The writing is beautiful, the characters are interesting and well developed (for the most part), the level of detail is ... Read full review
