Mosquito Coast knows, men who drag their families to far off climes in pursuit of an Idea seldom come to any good, while those familiar with At Play in the Fields of the Lord or Kalimantaan understand that the minute a missionary sets foot on the fictional stage, all hell is about to break loose So when Barbara Kingsolver sends missionary Nathan Price along with his wife and four daughters off to Africa in The Poisonwood Bible, you can be sure that salvation is the one thing they re not likely to find The year is 1959 and the place is the Belgian Congo Nathan, a Baptist preacher, has come to spread the Word in a remote village reachable only by airplane To say that he and his family are woefully unprepared would be an understatement We came from Bethlehem, Georgia, bearing Betty Crocker cake mixes into the jungle, says Leah, one of Nathan s four daughters But of course it isn t long before they discover that the tremendous humidity has rendered the mixes unusable, their clothes are unsuitable and they ve arrived in the middle of political upheaval as the Congolese seek to wrest independence from Belgium In addition to poisonous snakes, dangerous animals, and the hostility of the villagers to Nathan s fiery take no prisoners brand of Christianity, there are also rebels in the jungle and the threat of war in the air Could things get any worse In fact they can and they do The first part of The Poisonwood Bible revolves around Nathan s intransigent, bullying personality and his effect on both his family and on the village they have come to As political instability grows in the Congo, so does the local witch doctor s animus toward the Prices, and both seem to converge with tragic consequences about halfway through the novel From that point on, the family is dispersed and the novel follows each member s fortunes across a span of than 30 years The Poisonwood Bible is arguably Barbara Kingsolver s most ambitious work, and it reveals both her great strengths and her weaknesses As Nathan Price s wife and four daughters tell their story in alternating chapters, Kingsolver does a good job of differentiating the voices But at times they can grate teenaged Rachel s tendency towards precious malapropisms is particularly annoying students practice their French congregations Nathan s refusal to take his family home is a tapestry of justice More problematic is Kingsolver s tendency to wear her politics on her sleeve this is particularly evident in the second half of the novel, in which she uses her characters as mouthpieces to explicate the complicated and tragic history of the Belgian Congo Despite these weaknesses, Kingsolver s fully realised, three dimensional characters make The Poisonwood Bible compelling, especially in the first half when Nathan Price is still at the centre of the action And in her treatment of Africa and the Africans she is at her best, exhibiting the acute perception, moral engagement and lyrical prose that has made her previous novels so successful Alix Wilber, .comBreathtaking Sunday Times A book club classic There is humour, history, love and loss The Times A brilliantly realised epic of one family s journey to the heart of darkness Independent An updated, dysfunctional version of Louisa May Alcott s Little Women it pours forth ideas about good and evil, civilization and savagery, and the unlikely nature of redemption Sunday Times Provocative and affecting illustrates how profoundly both women and the world have changed Claire Messud Soaringly panoramic the jungle throbs with life and death every aspect unnervingly convincing Julie Myerson Funny, terrifying and heartbreaking Mail on Sunday What triumphs is Kingsolver s gentle good humour, the ingenuity of the strong women characters and a universal
