"Lilith: A Romance" is George MacDonald's 1895 fantasy novel, which is the story of Mr. Vane, the owner of a library that seems to be haunted by a former librarian. When Vane encounters this apparition he comes to discover that it knew his father who now resides in "the region of the seven dimensions". Vane follows the apparition through a mirror to this strange new world where he encounters the house of beds, the Little Ones, and Lilith, the princess of Bulika. A fantastical journey through a mystical world, "Lilith" is considered one of MacDonald's darkest and most profound works, one that concerns the very nature of life, death and salvation itself.

I have restarted this book several times because there is so much and it is so interesting. Have also bought 4 more copies for my children and a friend. I'm not done sharing this book either. Classic! Warning...the surprise for me was it was freaky until I got used to the imagery. Made Poe look like a pussy-cat. But so much depth!!!!!!

This book is not for everyone, but if you find yourself longing for a mystical place that, at one time, you might have called home, you have something in common with the protagonist of this story. It is not fast paced by today's standards, but I never got bored with it. I would recommend it to the spiritually inclined.

This is the third time I have read this book, and each time I enjoy it more and get a deeper understanding of what it is really about. The first time I bought it for 25 cents at a yard sale, and was attracted to it because of the name (I didn't know back then that Adam was said to have a wife named Lilith, prior to the creation of Eve). I also didn't realize that George MacDonald was such a prolific writer of prose and poetry, mostly on religious themes. At that time my reaction to the book was that it was very strange and weird and I was entranced by it, and I knew that I would read it again when I was more ready for it. My second reading was about 20 years later; I reacted in somewhat the same way as the first time, but realized that there was a greater metaphor behind the story and the characters themselves. In this, my third reading, I saw everything much more clearly, understanding more of the greater meaning in the characters of Mr. Raven, the leopards, the "little ones", the "House of Death", even in the landscapes and the travels of Mr. Vane. I will read "Lilith" at least once or twice more in my life if I am given the time. I highly recommend it for seekers and "wonderers", and all readers whether Christian or of any other religious persuasion---although George MacDonald was a minister, I believe that this wonderful, timeless tale has something for everyone.

Unusual book, but worth reading. This is one of George MacDonalds later works, but the only one I've read except for "The Princess and the Goblin" books as a child. Lilith (written for adults, unlike "Princess") is somewhat wandering and psychedelic, but has more plot and better developed characters than I feared it would after the first few chapters. It's not a long book, and will probably stick in your head a long time after you finish it. It's probably best to know going in that "Lilith" is a figure in Jewish mythology, who was said to have been created as Adam's wife before Eve.

I just got shafted for the third time with a great sounding book published in an unreadable format. It's 8-1/2 x 11" and about 1/4 inch thick with a tiny font crammed onto each page. I do most of my reading on the bus and train and can't follow the text or even keep the book open on a bumpy ride. Book and font size are an important part of the presentation and this one completely misses the boat. I wish Amazon would quit pawning off these ridiculous publications on the unsuspecting reading public. I won't be trying to read it.

Lilith presented as someone to be salvaged by God and loved by God and not hated by men. In this in some ways we can see the fulfillment of the end of enmity and the redemption of mankind as he learns through Lilith that he too is responsible for his own decisions (instead of simply looking to blame the innocent).
  • Onath
A beautifully-told story, bursting with imagination and flights-of-fancy. A classic "fairy tale for adults" and children of all ages. This tale deserves the widest audience. Unforgettable and timeless.
If you're a CS Lewis fan, you need to read this book. I had this book in paperback form some years ago, and lent it to somebody and never got it back. It's just that good. :)

Although the writing's a bit archaic, in a style more akin to Tolkien's LOTR books, it's not an exceptionally hard nor long book to read. MacDonald was a much more solid writer in general than Tolkien (in his early days), and the style lends itself well to the story. Like Lewis, MacDonald used allegory in most, if not all, of his fantasy stories, and this is a great example of that. There's a lot of very complex imagery and symbolism-- most of which I'm sure I can't even comprehend.

Despite deeper meanings, there's still an intriguing story going on, one that's not hard to follow, and exciting to read. It feels like a folktale in some ways, but like deep myth in others. If you're a fan of older myth and folk tales, then you'll really enjoy this.
