The Poisonwood Bible: A Novel by Barbara Kingsolver
 
Book Club Recommended
Informative, Adventurous, Insightful
The Poisonwood Bible

Kingsolver's ability to write in the voice of each of the female characters with such clarity and distinction is a marvel. The story is complex and rich and compelling. Her writing is beautiful, full of the kind of imagery that takes you right there, draws you in and captivates you.

The Piano Teacher: A Novel by Janice Y. K. Lee
 
Book Club Recommended
Informative, Pointless, Confusing
Excellent writing distinguishes this novel

The subject matter is not all that uplifting, and the main characters are not the most likeable, but somehow the author draws the reader into the dark, complicated, chaotic world of Hong Kong during WWII and in the aftermath some ten years later, through a well crafted weaving of storylines. The writing is interesting and sophisticated, and though the characters have hard edges, we do feel sympathy for them, due to the author's skill.
