Få karaktärer i Bibeln har varit så svårförstådda som Kain. I Kains bok ger Marianne Fredriksson oss en annorlunda bild, det är en mjuk och kärleksfullt berättad saga.
Bokens Kain är vuxen och lever tillsammans med sin familj. När hans hustru Lea ska föda deras barn överger han dem. Barnet väcker starka känslor som han har svårt att hantera. Han ger sig av för att söka Para

I have been hesitating to read this book ever since I bought it. I even regretted buying it.... But, when I was home without anything new to read except for this book, I started reading anyway.
And, it was not nearly as theological as I had expected. The story tells about Adam and Eve and their struggle in life. The book is a trilogy and in every book there is a different main character, a different point of view.
First there's Eve, then Kaïn and in the last book Norea. I read it with a lot of pl
Laaiend enthousiast over deze! Geen kleffe historische, langdradige roman, maar een mooi en uitdagend verhaal dat echt de goesting om meer van haar boeken, meer van historische verhalen, meer over geschiedenis te lezen en te leren. De manier waarop Fredriksson schrijft, is zo intens maar moeiteloos te lezen. Zeker een aanrader!

Mir hat der Nachfolger von "Eva" erheblich besser gefallen. Das mag daran gelegen haben, dass ich mit dem Stil vertrauter war und mich deswegen besser zurecht finden konnte.
Auch "Abels Bruder" ist sehr philosophisch, bietet aber mehr "Story" drum herum, während "Eva" ein sehr introvertiertes Werk war.

Andra boken i serien; tyckte den var bättre troligen för jag kommit in i berättarstilen! Sätter fantasin i rörelse, mycket dramatiskt slut....

Den är ju fantastiskt skriven! Men handlingen engagerar mig inte lika mycket som Evas bok gjorde. Kan det vara att jag har svårare att relatera till Kain?
