WARNING! This book contains sex - both consensual and non-consensual.

Imagine the first book of Genesis with Eve and Adam played by sixth graders. The girl is into math and science because she's too young to know how girls are "supposed" to act, while the boy just wants to play hackey sack.

Meanwhile, the serpent is played by Robert Oppenheimer (I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds) and God is played by Kenneth Bainbridge (Now we are all sons of bitches).

Yeah, it gets bad. Eve suffers the most, and when she's given the choice whether or not to start go forth and multiplying, I'm kinda amazed she went pro-life.

Interesting exploration of the Beginning.
