A must read.
This is one of my all time favorite books! I have read it more than once and highlighted so many lines. Love the perspective of chapters being written by each daughter and the haunting early chapter from the mother.

It had potential to be a good book but I didn't find it interesting at all. It had a slow start and I thought it was going to get better but it never did. There is nothing that happens that grabs the readers attention. It is also very long for a book where nothing happens. I can't even reach the end. Love the author but not this book.
I may be young but I've read my fair share of books. This the first to make me cry. It's a thought provoking page turner that I would recommend to anyone
My mother and I used to read this book together when I was younger. It holds a very special place in my heart. It will forever be the best book I've ever read
I was prepared to purchase this book but read it was fiction. If this was a true account then I would have downloaded it.
Had to read it for high school. Was not really looking forward to it. But this book was honestly one of the best books ever written. It's pure and raw. It touches every motion. Learned that too of anything even religion can be harmful. Good book.
I read a great deal during my day and when this over came across my radar, I wasn't disappointed. Typically, Oprah pics are involved and are usually about rape or blacks' rights or deformed people, however ,this book is literally a "Bible" to our humanity. Even though this book took 30years in the making, it is pure genius, what kingsolver wrote spoke to me and clarified emotions and general life experiences in a philosophical way. The book was never dull, or too religious in delivery even though it's about a preacher. But don't let that deter you. Realistically, it's an epic novel about the lives of the Price family and how they managed to survive the Congo. It was very real and the writing , didactic in creation. A must read for anybody trying to make sense of this world. Great characters , also . Read it, I wish I never did so I can read it all over again.
This novel is truly remarkable, and the epitome of Barbara Kingsolver's literary genius. It combines adventure, love, tragedy, and history, in the lyrical and insightful way few authors can deliver. It is a must read for anyone who appreciates true literature.
I bought this book to listen to while at the gym. It was enthralling from the minute I turned it on. We follow the lives of a single family starting with their adventure to the congo. Each member has a different perspective and each are amazingly interesting. I loved the reader and found the story to be insightful and interesting.
Beautiful writing. You feel as if you are in the plot. Creative and complex characters. I have read the book several times over the years and always enjoy it!
I had to read this book for school last year, and it is one of my favorite books ever. The writing is flawless, the characters are interesting, complex, and entertaining, and the plot is riveting. Such a good read which taught me something as well!
