Once I have given The Poisonwood Bible a go I am sure (as everyone has said I will love it) I will be desperate to read The Lacuna! I love the Victorian era so must get some of those books too.

What gorgeous covers on the Lacuna and Museum of Innocence! enjoy

Simon - I've not read The Poisonwood Bible either. looking forward to Kingsolver full stop.

Thanks Diane!

While I wouldn't give The Lacuna a 10, I would highly recommend it. It is very interesting how Ms. Kingsolver has woven such characters as Frida Kahlo and Leon Trotsky into the story. But what interested me even more was the locale of the second half of the book--Asheville, North Carolina--as I was born and raised in the immediate area, and could picture the places, people and events she mentioned. I have a friend who I hope will read the book as well, so we can compare notes.

On the other hand, I'm already on the wait list for The Museum of Innocence. Istanbul is on my wish list for travel.
