This short book analyzes Genesis 2-3 as a narrative. It's very good, and I wish to make one criticism and one observation about it.

The criticism is that the book occasionally wanders heavily into literary theory. I find this unnecessary every time the author does it and a distraction, and it may be as much a challenge to the average reader as the occasional transliterated Hebrew or Akkadian.

The observation is that Mettinger bends over backward to avoid making any connection between the Eden Narr

A narratological anaysis of Genesis 2-3, including a chapter on the Adamic myths of Ezekiel 28 and Job 15.7-8 and one on Adapa and Gilgamesh. Focuses on the themes of wisdom and immortality. Very persuasive and readable.
