Today I finished reading The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver. It is the first Kingsolver book I read and I was intrigued by it. It would be a good book for a book club because there would be plenty to discuss regarding Christianity, missionaries, and US involvement in foriegn countries. The book is not a short one, though, with over 500 pages, so it would take some time to read. It took a bit to get into the book, partly because each chapter is from a different person's point of view, but it does flow fairly well despite that. The family (parents and four daughters) move from Georgia to the Congo in Africa in the 1950's and have some serious cultural adjustments to say the least.
