really liked it
Read in September, 2010

I thought this was really well done. I liked how she uses the Adam and Eve story to raise questions about life and knowledge. She does a good job having them discover basic things like sex and eating in a way that doesn't seem too cheesy, and actually creates a complex relationship between Adam and Eve. I loved the slight bit of humor when Adam insisted to Eve that, clearly, they Must Not Eat Fruit (any fruit). The nod to evolution at the end was interesting, too.
