Sorry, but I feel Ms. Aidinoff's story of Eden is horrible. To depict God as a big ol' meanie who is controlling, unthoughtful, unloving and is given to temper tantrums - that's just WRONG!!
And having the Serpent somehow becoming a tender lover for Eve - outrageous...
She also seems to show Adam as rather a sweet but dopey guy. I don't like it.
It's great to have imagination and create reading material - but there ought to be a point where a person needs to stop and think about the readers - what will they think? How will my writing be viewed? Do I even CARE what they think?
So, if she got the idea for this in church, I don't know - maybe she needs to spend more time there...
This book really made me look at the begining of the earth in a different. I really really liked this book. I feel as though this book is good for anyone just interested in a absolutely great book. This book is not just for someone who is religous.
The Garden is an amazing book. Its set in the garden of eden, just like in the bible, except the story is from Eve's point of view. I really liked this book because everything was completely different from Eve's view and it made me think about the whole story and how it really happened. Its very interesting and really opens your mind.
Anyone and Everyone should read this book, even if your not religious. Go for it!
