Eve: A Novel By WM. Paul Young

I received this book from Howard Books A Division of Simon & Schuster for no charge in exchange for my honest review of this book. The opinions expressed here are my own.


Book Description: 

From the author of the twenty-five-million-copy bestseller The Shack comes a captivating new novel destined to be one of the most talked-about books of the decade.

Eve is a bold, unprecedented exploration of the Creation narrative, true to the original texts and centuries of scholarship—yet with breathtaking discoveries that challenge traditional beliefs about who we are and how we’re made. Eve opens a refreshing conversation about the equality of men and women within the context of our beginnings, helping us see each other as our Creator does—complete, unique, and not constrained by cultural rules or limitations.

When a shipping container washes ashore on an island between our world and the next, John the Collector finds a young woman inside—broken, frozen, and barely alive. With the aid of Healers and Scholars, John oversees her recovery and soon discovers that her genetic code connects her to every known race. No one would guess what her survival will mean…

No one but Eve, Mother of the Living, who calls her “daughter” and invites her to witness the truth about her own story—indeed, the truth about us all.

As The Shack awakened readers to a personal, non-religious understanding of God, Eve will free us from faulty interpretations that have corrupted human relationships since the Garden of Eden.

Thoroughly researched and exquisitely written, Eve is a masterpiece that will inspire readers for generations to come.


My Thoughts:

Eve is the latest book by WM. Paul Young and it is a good one. I have not read any of his other books but do have them in my To Be Read pile. Eve is the retelling of the story of Creation and the fall of Man from a personal viewpoint,  seeing it from the view point of Lily, one of the main characters in the book.  This book was definitely well researched and gives the story of creation a modern look God and the story of man. I felt the writing was good but I had a hard time keeping up in the beginning but eventually it all evened out and I felt I had a firmer grasp on the message WM. Paul Young was writing about. I did have a hard time connecting with the book but that shouldn't discourage readers from this book. I think this book is a good book and for anyone looking for a modern telling of the story of creation this is definitely the right book for you! I plan on reading Eve again and hope to be able to add more to my review.  I give this book 3.5 STARS.
