I found myself questioning the ending of the Poisonwood Bible. Seeing the children go in totally different ways, who do you think came out of the experiences in Africa with a truer understanding of themselves and the world?

I think that each character came out of it having a truer understanding of themselves and thier world. Well maybe not Rachel, since she continued to be self-centered.

To me there is nothing like a true taste of reality to put everything into focus. Throughout the book the characters had a chance to really look into themselves, maybe more than they wanted to, and see what they looked like. Even a family's members are not guaranteed to be just alike. There should always be some type of bond left between them even though they went into different directions.

I believe that Adah, who was a true observer, came out knowing and understanding the most from her experience. The mom came back scarred emotionally.

I agree with Donna, Adah gained the most and truly had a different view of the world. Her philosophy reminded me of Ishmael??????? :idea:
