    Story

    The narrator is Max Morden, a middle-aged Irishman who, soon after his wife's death, has gone back to the seaside town where he spent his summer holidays as a child; a retreat from the grief, anger, and numbness of his life without her. But it is also a return to the place where he met the Graces, the well-heeled vacationing family with whom he experienced the strange suddenness of both love and death for the first time.

    Overall

    This book was slow and boring. I do not recommend it while driving -- the reader will definitely put you to sleep.

    The Poisonwood Bible is a story told by the wife and four daughters of Nathan Price, a fierce evangelical Baptist who takes his family and mission to the Belgian Congo in 1959. They carry with them all they believe they will need from home, but soon find that all of it - from garden seeds to Scripture - is calamitously transformed on African soil.

    "Great Audiobook!"
    Overall

    This book is fantastic! The reader's Southern accent captures the feel and sound of Africa as experienced by this missionary family from Georgia. The book is worth reading!
