Lilith was Adam's first wife, not Eve, but the Bible Kept It Secret
Start your review of Book of Lilith. Jul 20, Siobhan rated it really liked it. In my own opinion, I find them to be rather hit or miss. Whether it is because I expect too much or the wrong thing, or whether it is something else entirely, but I always enter short stories with a feeling of trepidation.
Thus far, P. Tyler has given me a number of short stories that were enjoyable. In short, the woman knows how to write a short story that gives you all you need in a handful of pages. Book of Lilith is no different. It is a story you can complete in no time at all, but it will stay with you long after finishing. Truthfully, I wanted more from it — but in the best way possible.

Sometimes you want more from a short story because it failed to give you anything, other times you want more because the story is so good you wish to see an entire world built from the few pages. With Book of Lilith, we have a case of the latter. I want more of this story, more of this world. It is an amazing tale in and of itself, and it has opened so many possibilities for where the story could go from here.
I want to read those stories. I want to see where things head. Basically, I want more. In as simple terms as possible, it is a tale of how the world came to be with an interesting twist to make it stand out beyond the rest. Honestly, you can complete it in no time at all, so go ahead and pick it up. I promise that it is well worth the read.

As a final note, I would like to thank the author for allowing me to read and review this as part of her review team. Jul 29, Kel Faerie-bookworm rated it it was amazing Shelves: ebooks , arc , from-author , read , gods-goddesses , fantasy , reviewed , kindle. If you've ever wondered about Lilith and understand that this is fantasy then you will enjoy this. Lilith and Adam were created the same, unlike Eve who was created from Adam's rib. Meaning, Lilith should have been Adam's equal and treated as so. In this version, there is no devil, no snake in the garden, and not even an apple.
Other than the fantastical creatures it actually makes sense as to why some women are subservient while others fight to rise up to the top. Definitely made me think Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.

Is Lilith biblical? - Follow In Truth
Initially agreeing to review Book of Lilith by P. Tyler: this twist of the creation story bringing a new dialogue and revising this His in history. Tyler has a facility with words that build a picture, dot by dot, leading readers to look at situations, people and even their own beliefs in a new way. I love her writing, and am endlessly surprised, often confused but always entertained by the thoughts she germinates in each new release.
Whether you know her writing, or are searching for a new author to discover and add to your shelf — this is a great introduction. I purchased a copy of the title in the collection form for my own library. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility. Jul 21, PJ Lea rated it really liked it. An interesting take on the story of man's creation.
It's a short story but detailed, with a twist at the end. I found it well written and intriguing, though it would have been better if it was longer. Feb 20, Lorena rated it it was ok. As with all of P. Tyler 's stories that I have read so far, this is very well written, but it made me very uncomfortable and I didn't enjoy reading it. Perhaps it's because retelling a biblical story is sensitive subject matter, and I just wasn't comfortable with this author's interpretation.
This is a very feminist interpretation, filled with anger and violence. If that sounds intriguing to you, you may enjoy this more than I did. We're also in a period where social media is full of confli As with all of P. We're also in a period where social media is full of conflict based on politics, race, gender, sexual orientation, socioeconomic class, and more.
With all of this tension, I don't want to read stories that seem to add to the conflict. I read for pleasure and escapism, not to feel angry and upset, and I prefer to read about characters I like. This is just too dark for me, and it fails the "would I want to spend time hanging out with these characters" test. I seem to be in the minority on this, so your reaction may be different. I reviewed a free copy of this book provided to me by the author, which in no way affected the honesty of my review.
