Has anyone read the new book Eve?  I took it out from the library but cannot get into it.  Is it me or did anyone put it down as not worth the read?

It's on my WL.  I thought it had sounded interesting.

I enjoyed it.  It was good, not great. The whole premise fascinated me and I traded a few emails with the author.  I actually bought it new.  It's told in three or four different voices.  I liked the parts where Eve explains her beginning and first meeting Adam,  She goes into the Fall and eviction from the Garden.  I would recommend it to someone who was interested in the subject.

I loved it!

But, that's probably because I'm fascinated with biblical characters.
