    On one hand, there is nothing new here, and on this same old tirade, I disagree strongly with the author Examples Relativism I m sorry, I believe infanticide to be wrong for all cultures, for all times Missionaries, particularly protestant missionaries to Africa were entirely the endeavor of egotistic, abusive, colonialists who were merely out to

    There s plenty of Goodreads reviewers who felt differently, but I found The Poisonwood Bible to be a very strong and very different piece of historical fiction It s a slower story than I normally like, something you might want to consider before deciding whether to try this 600 page exploration of colonialism, postcolonialism and postcolonial attitudes, bu

    I read this over a two day span in college when I was home for winter break We had a power outage so I found the sunniest room in the house and read all day Although I prefer Kingsolver s works about the American southwest, this remains one of the most fascinating books I have ever read.

    I had a hard time choosing between 2 and 3 stars really, it should be 2.5 I thought the prose was quite lovely Kingsolver has a nice voice I enjoyed reading about a part of the world of which I have no experience The description of the clash of cultures was well done However The author had an agenda and she really didn t mind continually slapping us in the face with it Now, I don t pre

    People 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

    My official review Tata Jesus is B ngala I finished the last 300 pages in 2 days which is very fast for me English books I felt every emotion under the sky with this book I hated Nathan Price, I hated injustice, I hated my uselessness, I hated the fact that there are no good prospects for Africa in the future As a Geographic major I strongly believe that the closer you are to the Equator, the longer it will remain an underdeveloped co
