    Passionate, earthy, deeply affecting, The Red Tent combines rich storytelling with a valuable contribution to modern fiction: a vibrant new perspective of female life in the age that shaped present day civilization and values.

    If you like The Red Tent, try The Harlot by the Side of the Road, a recounting of some of the most startling and explicit writings from The Old Testament.

    Overall

    This is a work of fiction, not fact or truth. Anita Diamant has taken a tiny bit of the Bible and created a compelling tale of triumph and tragedy, of happiness and sorrow, of hope and despair. If you are expecting a retelling of the Bible, then you will be disapponted.
    The narrator was good, and the background music that is interspersed through the reading is beautiful. I personally think this book is meant to be read aloud, in true oral history fashion.

    Amy says: "Great book, bad recording"
    "Great book, bad recording"
    Overall

    In my opinion, this is Maeve Binchy's best book. It's well written, and actually, it's well read also. The 'bad recording' comes from the fact that the volume goes up and down during playback, and the occasional music comes across as shrill, and it overpowers the narrator from time to time. I assume this is because it was converted from format 1 to format 2. I have heard bits of this on cassette tape, and the sound recording was fine, so it appears to be just this particular format.

    But, if you can ignore the poor sound quality, this is a great book for listening.

    Also, I have to say that I did notice the sound going up and down on the 'preview' bit that I listened to, but it wasn't so bad during that.
