I loved this book so much from the first word to the last. This is my first Kingsolver novel and if all of her writing is like this, I'm going to devour it all.
The characters are so distinct and you never have to double-check at the beginning of the chapter to see who is narrating. I think the character of Adah is my favorite. I enjoyed seeing her mature throughout the story and the way her mind worked for each action.
I'm not a religious person but the idea of religion is fascinating to me so it was interesting to see how it was used throughout the book.
Also, the book is really a character study. If you don't like character driven books, it isn't for you. I put it in the same category as Grapes of Wrath and 100 Years of Solitude. It takes some warming up but watching it blossom is worth it. I read this for my IRL book club discussion tonight and I can't wait.
