The Poisonwood Bible was highly recommended to me, and I am now almost finished reading it. Has anyone here read it? I'd like to discuss it (it wasn't what I expected).

I learned a lot about Africa

I read the Poisonwood Bible about a year or so ago. Still own the copy. I enjoyed the book. If you like that one, I would suggest two of Kingsolvers other books..."The Bean Trees" and "Pigs in Heaven".
