The Poison Wood Bible is one of my most beloved books, so I came into this with very high expectations. I respect Ms. Kingsolver and her work but I didn't feel for these characters or their exploits. I kept hoping it would pick up but the narrative plotted along at an uneventful pace.
I was most disappointed in the performance. I so wish that in general authors would leave it to the professionals for narration. Although I found Ms. Kingsolver's voice distracting and irritating in her book Animal, Vegetable, Miracle it was forgivable considering it was mainly a memoir, but true fiction deserves to shine with the very specific skills of an actor.
