Publisher's Summary

A provocative epic of a story we know so well, or do we? Once expelled from the Garden, Adam and Eve had to find their way past recriminations and bitterness to build a new life in a harsh land.
In Fallen, David Maine has drawn a convincing, enthralling portrait of a family driven (and riven) by familiar passions and jealousies. The result is a staggering achievement and intimate, hilarious, and utterly original telling of temptation and murder, and of exile and loss.

What the Critics Say

"What makes this intelligent, funny, meaty, and moving novel so fascinating is the ease with which Maine inserts a modern sensibility and keen psychological analysis even as he jumps back and forth between the timelines of the two narratives and remains faithful to their biblical roots."

Remarkable!

I bought this book on a whim and was amazed at how quickly I was invested in it. The storytelling was unique and wonderful, and at the heart of the story is so much insight to the universal human experience that I felt myself unable to disconnect from the story.

Wonderful. Truly wonderful.

Disappoints

The format was very interesting (starting from the end chapter)....but the book was very weak. The author has an ability to descibe the scenes well, but fails to develope the characters.
