took me a while to get into it but that is typical of well researched novels... There is always the tendency to give too much background and detail. I have recommended it as a summer reading for seniors in my high school.
Kingsolver's writing is some of the best I have ever read. However, the story itself is heartbreaking. It is in part the story of someone sharing Christ without knowing Christ.
loved the narrator and the story told in many voices - so enchanting poignant and timely as our world grows ever smaller and the crevices between cultures grow to ravines
Ranges from hilarious to serious and back again. Fiction, yet definitely insightful! I really enjoyed the narrators depiction of the characters.
Some reviewers complained about the narration, but I thought it was just fine. The narrator doesn't completely change character like some of the more amazing narrators I've listened to, but she does give different voices to the women, and I enjoyed her performance.
One of the best books I've "read" in a long time. Deserves its acclaim.
The narrator is excellent. I'm going to look up other books she's narrated
This is one of my favorite books of all time. I read it over a decade ago and revisiting it on audio was a pleasure. The characters are complex, I love learning a bit of history and subject matter gets you thinking. Love it.
I enjoyed listening to the narrator and found the story intriguing. Highly recommend to read and captivating. Would read or listen to more books from the author.
Highly recommend to anyone who has an interest in non-American cultures. A must read. I enjoyed the audio performance.
