No - I didn't finish this one.
I think this book must be aimed at a very Christian target market - not that I am anti-Christian in any way but I found it very tedious and uninteresting. I bought the audiobook to listen to in the car because of the good reviews but struggled through it until the native American (I think?) Jesus made an appearance ….. at that stage I was so bored that my mind kept drifting and I wasn't really concentrating on what was going on.
No - I think he used too much expression which I found very irritating and hastened my decision to abandon the book.
Most of it ...
I would have given up on the book earlier but kept on hoping that the next chapter would jump back to the 'real' world which to me was a little more interesting than the comatose Tony's subconscious ramblings.
I love The Poisonwood Bible - it's one of my favourite books of all time. I sometimes find the problem with audiobooks is that the narration can spoil your memories of a great book - however I found this version very well narrated. The stories of the four girls and their mother intertwined beautifully; the narrator didn't try to give each person too much of a different voice which I think would have sounded contrived. I highly recommend this book.
Yes. It is a wonderful, powerful and emotional book and is very well read by Michael York.
The old man's journey across Johannesburg, searching for his son.
I liked listening to it in the car in instalments - it made trips a pleasure and I was sorry when it was finished.
A classic story of Southern Africa - as relevant today as it was in the 1940s.
