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.

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.

Original!

Loved the biblical connotations and their contemporary interpretation! As a lesbian Rabbi, I enjoyed this book a lot!

Disappointed!!

I could not get through it! I knew it was going to be a different and/or dark kind of story but it was too different for me.

Incredibly creative

...so much so, that I don't know if I can do it justice with this review. So I'll just say, "5 stars," and you need to read it for yourself. Everything I've read by Eliza Andrews so far has been wonderfully unique, and this story takes it to an entirely different level.

The narrator, by the way, was perfect.
