struggled to finish, wasn't sure what the point of the stories was other than to discuss hownorganic farming is better but harder.
I loved the story and the performance! The narrator did a great job of making all the characters come to life with different voices, rhythms and inflections. The story started a little slow for me, but after the first chapter I was hooked! I wish there were going to be a sequel to follow up on the characters!!
I think "The Poisonwood Bible" is one of the best books I've ever read so I thought I would be very pleased with this purchase. In my opinion this book was good until it's very abrupt end. None of the fibers of the story were truly brought together. It seemed like Kingsolver completed a certain number of pages and simply stopped writing.
With the place and the women of this story. The reading was wonderful and the birds sounds between chapters was lovely. The strong, smart and deeply compassionate and complex women in this story felt like kin. Beautiful.
Another wonderful performance by Barbara Kingsolver. She takes you right into a place where every one of your senses meet with words spoken. Her words teach me with such eloquence that I hang onto every one of them as if life depended on them. Just to realize life does indeed depend on them.
Thank you once again!
