From the author of the acclaimed and provocative novels Fallen and The Preservationist comes a tale about a man who believes he is touched by the hand of God—then instructed by that God to slaughter his enemies. It is the story of “this worldly existence of men & brutes desire & unkindness” and of the woman, Dalila, who figures at the center of it all. In The Book of Samson, David Maine has created an unforgettable portrait, a unique and astonishing masterpiece that puts a face on a previously faceless icon.

    " Even though you might know how it all ends, this is a worthwhile read. I never read anything by David Maine, but I like what he did here. He didn't present his character -- his character presented himself. I still can't really decided if I just read the story of a champion or a sociopath. "

    " I like the way David Maine brings a modern view to the story of Samson adn Delila from the Book of Judges. He gives it a fresh 21st century view. He humanizes these biblical figures What jumps out at me is the violence that is committed by Samson and all the other tribes 'in the name of the LORD'. I guess some things never change. "

    " My disbelief was so suspended and the violence was so cold that I simply had to put this down. I couldn't take it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Nerissa | 9/20/2013

    " This is a retelling of the Bible story of Sampson, with Sampson as the narator of his own story. It was a good book, dry and full of black humor. If you know the story of Sampson, want to look at it in a whole new way, while enjoying a good read, this is a book you may want to read. "
