Kelly Thompson's Reviews > The Lacuna
If I had judged Barbara Kingsolver solely on "The Poisonwood Bible", I would not have read any of her other works. Yes, I'm one of the few who was not a "Bible" fan. The story just didn't resonate with me and I couldn't find anything to relate to in it. But while I didn't care for the story, what I DID like was Kingsolver's style of writing. Which led me to "The Lacuna" and I'm glad that it did. "The Lacuna" has many of the elements I like in a novel: an historic time period, passionate yet believable characters, drama with well-placed humor, and twists that while you may not see them coming, make perfect sense once they're revealed. Written mainly in journal style, with a smattering of letters and news articles, it's an easy but intense read that fans of art, writing, politics and history will enjoy.
