    Michele Cacano

    Love Kingsolver's style. Bean Trees and sequels were fun! And Poisonwood Bible is so well written, each chapter by a different character, so distinct and interesting.

    I read them all. Pigs in Heaven and the Bean Trees were favorite books in the days of Mrs. Lindenhoff. I even wrote a paper on them. The last one is what I would have to describe as her weakest, but I did gain a different appreciation for moths.

    This book wasn’t quite as captivating as the Poisonwood Bible but a great read!

    Find that I love these books because Kingsolver can use her words to paint a picture of both human traits and feelings we all share and she has an incredible understanding of nature and how we are connected to the earth. In a time when it seems that the connection between man and the earth around us is lost..her books remind me how interdependant we are. I just love the way she develops her characters and how they seem somehow familiar because she has an innate sense of the feelings and emotions Find that I love these books because Kingsolver can use her words to paint a picture of both human traits and feelings we all share and she has an incredible understanding of nature and how we are connected to the earth.

Read all of her books thus far. None have disappointed.

    Have read most of these, but want to again. It's been a long while! Just finished Pigs in Heaven - the sequel to the Bean Trees. After reading the Winding Ways Quilt book, with it's skeletal plot and characters, this book was such a feast of words! I love the way Barbara Kinsolver writes! It's probably been ten years or more since I read these books but I remembered them instantly - not exactly how the story went, but the characters. As each was introduced it was like meeting up with old friends. Have read most of these, but want to again. It's been a long while! Just finished Pigs in Heaven - the sequel to the Bean Trees.

    March 18, 2012: Finished this book last week. Took me a long while to get into it, but after about halfway through, I couldn't put it down. Really loved the voices of each woman. Amazing the directions their lives took. Compelling individual stories. Just starting The Poisonwood Bible. It's been on my to-read list for quite sometime. The story of a missionary family in the Congo in 1959. Each chapter is written by one of the females in the family. Mom and Carolyn recommend this author highly.

    Barbara Kingsolver is my favorite author thus far. What i find interesting about these four books being grouped together is that the writing styles found in Poisonwood Bible and Prodigal Summer differ dramatically from the tone set forth in both Pigs in Heaven and the Bean Trees. All of Kingsolver's books have amazing characters that get inside of you so you can experience the world from someone else's point of view.

    Maya Angelou once said "The Truth is a stubborn fact." This is true for the Poisonwood Bible. Outstanding literature - deeper thant the Bean Tree trilogy and Prodigal Summer. This book goes to the essence of my beliefs that we must accept people and situations as they are, and assimilate into cultures we visit.

    Barbara Kingsolver intertwines her political statement about nature and man as she weaves a wonderful story. Kingsolver always manages to transport me to another place and time. Her writing makes the pages just fly by.

    I only read The Poisonwood Bible, and I wasn't all that fussed by it. It starts off very strong, and then goes awry about 200 pages in. I can't even remember the ending, but the beginning of the book is incredibly vivid and full of excellent sensory details.

    Real, textured character after character after character.

    I personally think Kingsolver's earlier novels are her best. I specifically appreciate her character development.

    I've only read the Poisonwood Bible, not the set...but it was one of the best books I've read. I rarely read a book twice, but this one I have, and would read it again
