“Promising Start, Pitiful Finish”

Written on: 31/01/2013

My thoughts on the book overall: Kingsolver has a great writing style that is not easily lived up to. This is why I give The Poisonwood Bible two stars. The book feels very authentic for about the first 2/3rds and then drops wayyyyy off in quality.
