[url]I read Kingsolver's Poisonwood Bible and got to page 1 zillion, near the end, and said...I'm not bothering to read this. The story became inconsistent and a bit weird toward the end...and I realized I found the whole book unrewarding. I have read reviews of the book of her locavore year, and saw a comment that she seemed a bit too self-satisfied and smug...hmmm.[/url]
I also could not finish Poisonwood. I liked her Animal, Vegetable, Mineral, but agree with littlek that it's preachy. I prefer the locavore church of Michael Pollan.
Just started The Women by TC Boyle. It's about the wives of Frank Lloyd Wright.
