The first couple books talk about the family’s initial culture shock and adjusting to their new financially impoverished environment.

The section ends when the Congo earns independence from Belgium and new Prime Minister, Patrice Lumumba’s speech.

After Nathan releases the parrot, it continues to keep going back to the Price family because it needs to be fed by humans because it never had the chance to learn how to fend for it's self.

Also, because it was never out in the wild, it never learned how to protect it's self from predators.

Determined to make it through after hearing so many book lovers rave about it, I am giving The Poisonwood Bible another try.

I tell my kids to try things twice before they decide they don’t like it, so time for me to follow my own rules and finish this book.

It comes as no surprise to me that I like introverted Adah’s voice the best. Check out the interview with Barbara Kingsolver on her website. I’ll be posting the discussion on G and Goodreads too so be sure to join our groups there and connect with other book lovers who want to Travel the World in Books! Feel free to answer the discussion questions in the comments, on G or Goodreads!

She’s so perceptive, brilliant and humble, she’s the girl I feel the most emotionally connected to. What do you think of Nathan and Orleanna’s relationship? And please post your own questions you’d like us all to answer.

I get bogged down and a bit lost when it comes to his sermons and Biblical interpretations. What message do you think Barbara Kingsolver is trying to teach us with this part of the story? How important are the circumstances in which the phrase comes into being? Why do you suppose that Reverend Nathan Price is not given a voice of his own? What do we learn about cultural, social, religious, and other differences between Africa and America?

His sense of mission is strong and almost too extreme. Do you think the Price family is strong enough to endure it together? Do we learn from his wife and daughters enough information to formulate an adequate explanation for his beliefs and behavior? To what degree do Orleanna and her daughters come to an understanding of those differences?
