Book Review: The Poisonwood Bible

Before I start, lemme just say this book is thick as hell. Ok. Now we may continue.

Poisonwood Bible is about a family of White missionaries, Southern Baptist holy rollers, living in the Congo in 1960.  It started out reeaaaall slow.  Then picked up in the middle.  The ended reaaalll slow.  An interesting aspect of the book is that the author incorporates historical figures and events into the book.  Since I have a degree in history you would have thought I enjoyed that part but it made the book feel textbook-y at times.

Overall, this book is too thick to have only enjoyed 1/3 of it.  I think you can pass.
