Publisher's Summary

Adam loves Eve. Eve loves...Lilith?

Adam and Eve live in a suburban paradise. Eve is a stay-at-home mother of two; Adam works hard to provide for the family he loves. But despite how things look on the surface, Eve isn't happy. And when she meets Lilith by chance in a city park, her whole world begins to change. Lilith is offering Eve a fruit she's never tasted before; will Eve have the courage to partake?

Paradise is a short novella that reimagines the Book of Genesis in modern-day suburbia - with a queer twist. A blend of romance, introspection, and tongue-in-cheek humor, Paradise provides a fresh look at one of the oldest tales in the Western world.

Amazingly Unique

I loved this unique take on this story! I was not expecting it to have some of the aspects that it did but I really enjoyed it. I only wish it was longer but thats okay because I plan of reading this author's full novels!

A Few Great,,,names.

It was a great new look at the Bible. This story should be reconsidered as a Modern day Sunday School. Off to my next Adventure.

A surprise! I wasn't sure I'd like it, but did!

This story was a thoughtful reimagining that actually worked. definitely some clever allegories and symbolism here. I will probably never look at an albino python quite the same way again though. :-D

Too biblical

Too biblical for me. I wasn't able (able get it?) to finish listening. I can't recommend.

Wow this is such an odd fun story

It is nothing like I thought it would be. It’s symbolic but so cool and clever! I love Andrews style so much can not wait to read all of her books.

Brilliant!

This story shocks and delights and is incredibly creative. Mind blowing really. Bit if you are easily offended by ostensible blasphemy or cross species relations, stay away. I love this author.

An interesting take on the Biblical story

I am not a Christian in fact I am a Jew, and this book as strange as it was, is a very interesting commentary on the Biblical story and the Biblical commentary. In the Jewish commentary Lilith is the first woman created for Adam, but her wit caused the need to creat naive Eve. When I decided to buy this book I thought (actually I hoped) that Lilith as a woman will seduce Eve I was strangely surprised... And as for my imagination? I could not go that far... so Well done Eliza Andrews your imagination is hilarious. Narration btw was excellent. Thank you Angela Rysk, you took a great risk (pan intended) reading this book Last thing, it always pleases me when I realize that the writer is very well read and brings “support” from classics...

Very interesting

This was very enlightening. It really spoke of how things get when communication is lost.
