Poisonwood Bible

I read The Poisonwood Bible when I was teaching English in China & it spoke SO strongly to me after my experiences there.

I was worried when I re-read it recently that it wouldn't mean as much. BUT it was still amazing after the second read. If you haven't read this book I definitely recommend it. It's not an easy read I shed some tears but it's worth it.

I also loved it - and I read it near the beginning of my trip to Russia. I thought it went on too long, I would have liked it to end when they were still children (that's just a pet peeve I have, when a book keeps going)

Here, here - I second the recommendation. It's a fantastic book; one of my favs!
I do have to agree with Stephanie though; it's a great book but the end kind of drags a bit.

Mary just finished this and loved it which made me happy because I loved it too! I don't remember a lot of specifics but I do know it made me happy.
