Publisher's Summary

And on the sixth day, God created man.

Adam is the first human being all alone in the Garden of Eden. He has everything he needs, but he sure is lonely.

One morning he awakens to find his body flayed open. Could it be kidney thieves? No, God has stolen a rib to make him a companion. Why he couldn't have just made Eve out of dirt like Adam was, is beyond him. Adam and Eve are living in relative peace in Paradise until trouble comes to the Garden in the form of a snake. He convinces Eve to eat the Fruit from the Tree of Knowledge, and she convinces Adam to do the same. This makes God very angry, and he banishes them to the desert to fend for themselves.

Why are they suddenly knowing things they shouldn't? Why are twigs sprouting out from their body? How did their goat learn the words to all these Phil Collins songs?

Follow me, as we journey together through one man's complete misunderstanding of the Book of Genesis.

    "Lmao funny! Adam and Eve in a new light!"

    Get ready to laugh your back end off. This was hilarious! The view of the start of life in the garden of eden from Adam's view in this comedic romp is great. From how to name everything to the creation amid Adams little "Riblet" eve. The author and narrator deliver a wonderful escape from reality.

    Any additional comments?

    A is for Adam by Marc Richard was a pretty good read. This book was based on Adam and Eve with a modern twist. There were some very funny parts.

    Story
    "I didn't find this funny, just dumb"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    After 10 minutes I couldn't even listen to this. It seemed extremely immature and ridiculous.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Marc Richard again?

    I don't think so if this is a good example of his writing.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I didn't have a problem with the narrator.

    "short and entertaining"

    This was a good entertaining short story. I liked both Adam and Eve, they were funny. David Dear did a great job narrating the story with different character voices specially the snake, I will definitely check out more of his work now. You will have to not think hard about certain aspects and just go with the flow in order to enjoy it. If you got 2 hours to kill with chuckles and a credit burning I will recommend this. “I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review."

    "Oddball humor"

    I like to compare Marc to Christopher Moore. If you can suspend you belief in reality & like oddball humorous stories you'll love him.
    He IS one of the authors where you wonder 'where does he come up with this stuff?' I was voluntarily provided this review copy at no charge by the author, publisher and or narrator.

    "A tongue in cheek story of creation for the 17-25 crowd"

    This present day take on the life of Adam and Eve is surprisingly humorous. I didn't have any laugh out loud moments, but I caught myself grinning several times. The narrator does a fine job of expressing the author's unique nuances. The story is written very tongue in cheek, so pay attention or you will miss his dry humor. The story was a good length (1 hour) and held my attention 'til the end.

    This is a short funny book I listened to all in one sitting. I couldn't sleep so I plugged in my head phones and gave this a listen. My husband who sleeps next to me actually woke up twice because I was laughing... Opps.

    But may not be ok for total religious people

    Story
    "Not that funny"

    I really tried to enjoy this bizarre alternate take on the bible, but it just wasn't that funny to me. The author skewers all the biblical traditions, and introduces non-stop anachronisms (such as Adam having a watch and Phil Collins songs, for a few). Adam is a complete ass, women are continuously belittled, and overall it seems pretty anti-God. These things didn't bother me. They just didn't come across as funny.

    The narration was good. Mr. Dear did a good job of giving a different voice to each character, and channeled their personas well. I would listen to more of his narration on other books in the future.

    "Cute new take on Genesis."

    This is a cute, humorous sarcastic take on the story of Genesis. Adam is the first person on earth, wakes up with a missing rib. He's just glad someone didnt steal his kidney. Lots of snark and humor follow. The character descriptions are hilarious, and some of the events are just a wee bit different than described in the bible. A fun story for the irreverent, and worth a listen.

    "Funny Moments"

    I received this title for free in exchange for an unbiased review.
    Do not listen if you will be offended at a story that will make fun of the Biblical version of Adam and Eve. Having said that, I thought it started out funny and entertaining, and tapered off a little. It's a short story, kind of wished it was longer. The narrator did a good job with this material.

    Story
    "Adam's point of view"
    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    Adam realising he had a rib missing and that someone new was in bed with him.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Adam making up names for things was very funny.


    Any additional comments?

    A funny account of life in Eden from Adam's point of view. He's all alone until Eve comes along to keep him company.
