    Dellarobia Turnbow is a restless farm wife who gave up her own plans when she accidentally became pregnant at 17. Now, after a decade of domestic disharmony on a failing farm, she encounters a shocking sight: a silent, forested valley filled with what looks like a lake of fire. She can only understand it as a cautionary miracle, but it sparks a raft of other explanations from scientists, religious leaders, and the media.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    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.
