What made the experience of listening to Eve the most enjoyable?
I found myself going back to Genesis in the Bible and re-reading the Creation & the chapters on The Garden. I could see where the inspiration for the story came from; it was deeply moving and profoundly spiritual on so many levels all throughout the book, Oft was the time I found myself shouting into the air DON'T as the characters literally wormed their ways evilly about.
What did you like best about this story?
The story was redemptive. You understood the protagonists and how easily they plied their way into a good person. Weaving the Creation and The Garden into a story that had meaning today was done artfully and compassionately.
What does Roger Mueller bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
I personally feel more when the story is being read to me. I feel drawn into the book as if part of the scene unfolding as no printed words could attain.
Who was the most memorable character of Eve and why?
Lily Fields. Her journey of self-discovery and spiritual awakening and most importantly, love-dawning was inspiring. Despite all that had been done to her, the bad choices of trusting & hiding she made.. she was deeply loved. And loveable, despite herself.
Any additional comments?
This definitely belongs in your library if you love to re-visit books with spiritual inspiration in it. I am grateful for the person who told me William Paul Young wrote another book after how deeply The Shack affected me. Both his books bring tangible understanding to the explainable, indescribable faith that we cherish. There are aspects of both books you will listen to over and over and over again for the joy they instill as you imagine them unfold before you. Pure spiritual delight.

I love this book. I already can't wait to read it again. The characters are beautifully created and grow genuinely. The allegory is strong and powerful. There a few surprises, though. I feel like many ideas are borrowed from mythology, feminist ideals and new age ideologies. But even so, the the core message IS real to me and relevant. Some of the creative vehicles used to arrive at some of the more outlandish ideals are quite absurd, albeit interesting for imagery and thought provoking sake. I think that combining truth with fiction just might create a sense of openness that allows a person to be able to be able to say- "hey this is crazy! It can't be. Or can it?" And then possibly truly seek the Father for themselves.
Amazing story! Better than the shack. Especially after chapter 6.

If you are willing to stretch your imagination you will be rewarded with this book
This book was well written and I loved it almost as much as the Shack. It has similarities but also lots of differences too. The book was extremely confusing for at least the first half and even bits of the second half however the concepts contained inside were fresh, insightful and profound, delving closer into the original fall from Grace and what it means for us, particularly for women. I would not hesitate to recommend his book and to persevere even through the confusion.
