Publisher's Summary

Adam loves Eve. Eve loves...Lilith?

Adam and Eve live in a suburban paradise. Eve is a stay-at-home mother of two; Adam works hard to provide for the family he loves. But despite how things look on the surface, Eve isn't happy. And when she meets Lilith by chance in a city park, her whole world begins to change. Lilith is offering Eve a fruit she's never tasted before; will Eve have the courage to partake?

Paradise is a short novella that reimagines the Book of Genesis in modern-day suburbia - with a queer twist. A blend of romance, introspection, and tongue-in-cheek humor, Paradise provides a fresh look at one of the oldest tales in the Western world.

We make our own paradise

I found this new take on the Adam and Eve story very interesting. I was glad Eve realized that she wasn’t happy with her life and chose to do something about it. Lilith doesn’t seem to be evil at all. She is more misunderstood and is just looking for love.

Paradise A universal love story

Quirky, just like the world we live in. It shows us the judgmental side of humanity. It reflects all the worst qualities we share. It finds a path through love and trust. If we love no matter what our circumstances, orientation, or gender identity, we can be okay. It is worth the listen or the read.

Amazingly Unique

I loved this unique take on this story! I was not expecting it to have some of the aspects that it did but I really enjoyed it. I only wish it was longer but thats okay because I plan of reading this author's full novels!

A Few Great,,,names.

It was a great new look at the Bible. This story should be reconsidered as a Modern day Sunday School. Off to my next Adventure.

A surprise! I wasn't sure I'd like it, but did!

This story was a thoughtful reimagining that actually worked. definitely some clever allegories and symbolism here. I will probably never look at an albino python quite the same way again though. :-D

Too biblical

Too biblical for me. I wasn't able (able get it?) to finish listening. I can't recommend.

Wow this is such an odd fun story

It is nothing like I thought it would be. It’s symbolic but so cool and clever! I love Andrews style so much can not wait to read all of her books.
