Deb Jennifer what did you think of The Keep and The Poisonwood Bible. I read PB a long time ago but I really like it and The Keep I just finished this year.


message 9: by Jennifer Marie (new)

Jennifer Marie | 10 comments I wouldn't say they where my favorite reads ever. I liked the Keep during some parts, and other parts drove me nuts. And the end threw me for a loop. I don't know what I was expecting but definitely not what I got.

The PB I thought a little preachy but it was always kept me reading. I liked how the story was told from the female POVs.
