Esta versión moderna de los hechos de la reconstrucción del drama de Adán y Eva en el paraíso terrenal juega con la parábola de la historia de la humanidad. La narración nos induce al interior de Adán, viviendo en unmundomágico, sin conflictos, bello por esencia, y la aparición de Eva, que desde el principio es seducida por la serpiente que le informa de la existencia del árbol del conocimiento y esto es lo que más le atrae a Eva.

Fiel a la historia del Génesis, Eva come el fruto prohibido y cae en el pecado original, que a su vez le ofrece a Adán y a los animales que están junto a ella y comienzan una serie de acontecimientos conocidos por todos como: La destrucción del paraíso, los sentimientos de pudor, el dolor de parir y la crueldad del acto de alimentarse pormedio de la violencia, elmatar.Así transcurre esta bellísima novela que usa de pretexto los versículos de la Biblia de Adán y Eva para llenarles de sentimientos, pensamientos y emociones y acercarnos a la vida de estos personajes que desde el principio de los tiempos han influido en la formación de cada uno de nosotros. En el origen la humanidad.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dana | 2/20/2014

    " This was an interesting book, and I think Belli's writing is beautiful, but the ending was not so great... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 2/8/2014

    " beautiful, poetic, feminine, spoke to me as a woman who owns all she is. worth the read "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dale | 2/5/2014

    " If you like feminist reinterpretation of Christian myth, you'll like this. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lauren | 2/4/2014

    " It took me almost two days after finishing this book to put into words what I thought about it. A retelling of Adam and Eve, it stumbles at times and is tinged with modern sensibilities. It's easy to read but not an easy read, if that makes sense. What made me, in the end, like this book is that It builds on itself, running up to an unexpected ending that recasts the story of Adam and Eve. Recommended for hardcore literary-philes and those who do not view the Bible as an unimpeachable authority. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Danalia | 2/2/2014

    " Beautiful and poetic, simple in words but not in thought. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michaela | 1/26/2014

    " The writing style isn't extremely exciting -- this is a very traditionally written linear narrative (and I tend to prefer experimental fiction or really sparsely written books) -- but the subject matter is fascinating. Belli does a good job of raising questions about good vs. evil and god vs. the devil, making the reader wonder if "vs." is even the right term to describe the relationship. She also incorporates the story of Luluwa and Aklia, Cain and Abel's sisters. I have never heard of them before, and reading Belli's work makes me want to explore other texts to learn more. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sean Ohlinger | 1/14/2014

    " A really good read. A well-written account of what "might" have happened when God kicked Adam and Eve out of the Garden of Eden (if there any such thing as "The Garden of Eden", "Adam and Eve", or "God"). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barbara Fenzo | 1/8/2014

    " un meraviglioso libro della mia scrittrice preferita!!!!!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ricado | 10/21/2013

    " An interesting book about creation and the quest for the first human being to understand the complexity of existence. Gioconda Belli infuse the story of creation with life and imagination that leaves you fascinated. Her writing style will keep you interested to finish the book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Wendy | 8/14/2013

    " It is interesting to imagine Eve's perspective upon suddenly appearing in Eden and facing decisions about what to do next. This is beautifully written, but memorable only because of the concept upon which the story is based. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erin | 7/30/2013

    " A really beautifully written interpretation of Adam and Eve's creation, banishment, and life after the garden. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lynne Rozier | 7/14/2013

    " Very entertaining and a very easy book to read. I laughed as Adam and Eve had to face the "I just don't understand men/women" moments! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Keymie | 7/11/2013

    " Maravilloso, facinante, muy creativo y simple a la vez. Adictivo, me encanta. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katie | 9/14/2012

    " Had a hard time deciding between 4 and 5 stars. While there were things I didn't like about the book, it really did keep me interested and got me thinking. I read it quickly and easily. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Noecito Castillo | 6/15/2012

    " More like 3 and a half. I enjoyed Belli's lyrical prose and the retelling of Adam and Eve's story, but I couldn't help but notice some sexist subtext I didn't like at all. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stacie | 3/29/2012

    " A beautifully-written story, but not quite enough story for me. A great example of rich, poetic prose, though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelley | 1/1/2012

    " An intriguing premise but the book falls short of its potential. Perhaps something was lost in translation, but I doubt it. The ending left one thinking... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Thomas | 12/11/2011

    " Interesting take on a classic story. The author adresses many ideas not normally discussed in the typical biblical version. I am sure some of it was lost in translation, however, because the English version is a bit choppy and awkwardly worded at times. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janet Arnold | 12/8/2011

    " Fascinating look at paradise lost "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kathryn | 7/31/2011

    " This book starts with Adam and Eve being thrown out of the Garden of Eden, and what the author thinks their life was like on their own. I felt it was a light read and was not too interested in it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alejandro | 5/20/2011

    " increible creatividad de la autora "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barbara | 4/19/2011

    " An imagined phenomenology of Adam & Eve. I loved it! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Deana | 3/27/2011

    " NO me gustó esta historia de Adán y Eva.... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ricci | 11/14/2010

    " In this interesting novel, Belli blends the creation myth of Adam and Eve with the science of evolution. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ioana | 10/6/2010

    " interesting story (fictional) about Adam and Eve's live after beeing expelled out of the Paradise. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jane | 7/5/2010

    " Loved this one! Adam and Eve after the Garden of Eden - chatting with the Serpent about their progress - the birth of their children and the events leading up to Cain and Abel --- very very good reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Danalia | 7/1/2010

    " Beautiful and poetic, simple in words but not in thought. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alex | 6/3/2010

    " I cried when I reached the end. So beautiful. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sue | 2/21/2010

    " a story of ADAM & EVE. beauty and truth are intrinsically entwined with evil and sadness. choice is omnipresent. slithering and soaring between desire for answers: reasons and pure joy: freedom feeling much like ignorance is bliss. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anne | 2/12/2010

    " This was definitely an interesting take on the Adam and Eve story. While I don't agree with a lot of the interpretation, it was a well-written and thought-provoking read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erin | 1/4/2010

    " A really beautifully written interpretation of Adam and Eve's creation, banishment, and life after the garden. "
