A Captivating Read!
Hi, I read the book rather than listened, and I loved it! Yes, some may be offended by the liberties taken, but the lifestyles and pagan elements are probably more accurate than other stories of the completely pious lives of the matriarchs. If you liked The Red Tent, you'll probably like this, though I found this a bit less cheesy than the Red Tent. Still, the genre of ancient historical fiction is a beautiful setting and makes the novel a captivating read. But if your squeamish, stay away - there is plenty of sex in this book. I think this type of novel, along with Red Tent, will appeal more to Jewish readers and those with an anthropological background, rather than those most comfortable with the Christian view of the Bible, Old Testament, Matriarchs & Patriarchs, etc.
