Possible spoilers to follow. Young is an engaging writer and this is his fictional attempt to cast the blame of the Fall onto Adam and spare Eve from guilt in the fruit incident. In so going he subordinates Eve to Adam even before the Fall although I don't think he realises what he's doing. Adam and Eve are together humanity but Young portrays Adam as the one who turned and Eve as an innocent victim who later turns from God and chooses to leave the garden. In empowering Eve in this story he actually dis-empowers women. The problem with this kind of fiction is that some, including Young I suppose, will believe that the theology behind it is true. A lot of reading into Genesis is required for this story and I think Young ventures where angels would fear to tread. ( )

Eve is a garbled mess. Young takes elements of sci-fi mixed with an acutely bizarre reimagining of the creation story of Genesis. I will concede that there is a substantial point in the book: an individual has value and there is an intense level of harm in the patriarchal systems of violence in society and the lies an individual tells themselves; but, when you wrap up a good message with cliche and trite prose, rudimentary world-building, and unrealistic dialogue this book's OVERT thesis is an offensive and facile engagement with a sacred story in the Christian tradition.

I'm not going to rate this book because I did not finish it. It's well enough written and maybe even really beautiful, but I got through about half of it and still felt pretty disoriented. I am clearly not the right reader for this one.

I was loaned this book by a friend who thought I would enjoy it. Unfortunately, I simply could not. It was quite difficult to follow at times, and went against my beliefs as a Christian and what the Scripture teaches us.

Eve is about a young girl named Lilly, who is found nearly dead in a shipping container along a beach, filled with the bodies of dead young girls. We're never given a complete explanation of what happened to her, you simply assume by the hints presented that she was used in a prostitution ring.

Kept in a suspended state while healing, Lilly dreams and sees visions. One is of Eve. Yes, that Eve. Only she wasn't really seeing visions, but mentally transported.

Lilly becomes a "Watcher", an observer. She observes the moment of creation. Of the earth. Of Adam. And eventually of Eve.

Somehow she is sent back and forth through the NOW to the THEN. Eventually she finds out the Creator calls her Lillith. Yeah, you get it. THAT Lillith.

There are spins on the variation of the story that make absolutely no sense. I was bored to tears. Literally.

I won't give away any more of the plot. YOU might actually enjoy it. Just know it's not the traditional Adam/Eve/Lillith story we've all heard before. This has twists and turns, mountains and caverns that can get you lost if you don't pay attention.

I read the whole book, as an obligation to a friend who really enjoyed it, and thought I would as well. But unless you're into alternate creationism stories, I don't recommend it. ( )

This novel puts a very strange twist on man's sin in the garden. It is kind of a "what if" version. The main encouragement I got from reading this book is that God loves us more than we can comprehend and that nothing is beyond His good. ( )

Caught in the tidal flows of unspoken morning prayers and simple wonder, John the Collector rested against a tree with his toes burrowed and curled into the coolness beneath the waming sand.
