    PDF Barbara Kingsolver ã PDF The Poisonwood Bible PDF µ The Poisonwood Epub / ã gigonog.me poisonwood ebok, bible pdf, The Poisonwood book, The Poisonwood Bible PDFPeople love this book and I think I understand why It's got a collection of strong characters each chapter is written from a different character's point of view and it's set in Africa which is exciting But there are a few reasons I don't think it's great literature The main things I expect from a good novel are a that the writer doesn't manipulate her characters for her agenda b that the characters' actions are consistent to the world the writer has created for them c good tight prose and d the characters are nuanced and aren't entirely perfect or hideous In this novel the father character is entirely hideous and the mother and each daughter represent a plight of some kind Their existence is to present arguments for and against lots of important issues in Africa but for me that kind of thing is an extremely dissatisfying fiction experience I suppose there is an argument for fictionalizing reality in order to make it palatable and invite a larger audience to your cause but I don
