9780060556075: The Garden

In the beginning...There was the Serpent, there for Eve's awakening, and for all the days since. Teacher, mentor, companion, friend, and more. There was God - the Creator, quick to anger, dangerous, majestic. There was Adam: as God said, a joy to behold. And there was Eve. These four hold the future in their hands. And only Eve - or perhaps the Serpent, too - wonders what lies outside the Garden of Eden. Passionate, witty, beautifully drawn, and utterly unforgettable, "The Garden", a debut novel, remakes and offers insights into a story that forms a cornerstone of our understanding.

Review:

"An intriguing interpretation of the Creation story . . . Certainly unusual, this is a fascinating novel and sure to attract attention" ( The Bookseller)

"While The Garden is undeniably intense at times, Aidinoff has successfully leavened her tale with refreshing doses of humour and the sensual quality of the prose" ( Guardian)

"This is a remarkable, morally complicated provocative novel. I don't think teenagers should be allowed to keep it to themselves" (Kate Kellaway Observer)

"A lyrically scripted, refreshing, reflective, mischievous exploration of Genesis and its ambiguous symbolism" ( TES)

"One of the world's oldest stories becomes new again. . . . The story is at its best during the dialogues between Eve and the Serpent when age-old questions are asked and real answers are given - although not necessarily the answers that have been accepted for ages" ( Booklist USA)

Book Description:

Set in paradise this is Eve's story as you've never heard it - in a brilliant and provocative novel, introducing the reader to the elderly, cantankerous figure of God, the wise and beautiful serpent, the gentle Adam and the enquiring, intelligent Eve.
