Book Review: The Bean Trees
The Bean Trees by Barbara Kingsolver
This is the title I selected for our book discussion at the library month, based mostly on the fact they enjoyed our previous Kingsolver read, and that I can find a few discussion questions to go with it!
As it turns out, I really enjoyed this novel - Kingsolver's writing is just flowing and lyrical, and you are immediately engaged and rooting for her characters. Taylor Greer is our heroine, as she treks to Tucson in a beat up car and acquires a baby, new friends, a love, a job and a sense of self along the way.
I've not read Kingsolver's "most famous" novel (The Poisonwood Bible) but I've truly enjoyed her writing in the other books I've read. Recommended!
