Simon is wonderfully open about the lack of clarity in his early years, the not knowing, and the challenging relationships. While it hasn’t always been easy, he also has some fantastic ideas and insights on what has worked for him along the way! He's narrated books for Brent Weeks, George .

In Fallen, David Maine has drawn a convincing, wryly observant, and enthralling portrait of a family-one . I was recently reminded of how much I enjoyed reading David Maine's first book, The Preservationist, and so I went out and picked up everything he's written since.

In Fallen, David Maine has drawn a convincing, wryly observant, and enthralling portrait of a family-one driven (and riven) by passions, irrationality, and love. The result is an intimate, in-depth story of brothers, a husband, and a wife-people whose struggles are both completely familiar and yet utterly original. The Fallen didn't disappoint - I love his writing. His style is wry and sparce.

Fallen tells, in novel form, the stories of Adam, Eve, Cain, and Abel in reverse time order, starting with Cain's struggle with the aftermath of his murder of Abel. We begin with the consequences -- Cain's guilt and his life of exile -- and work our way backwards. Unresolved (purposely so, I think) is why Cain develops the way that he does and why he commits an act so unthinkable to his father.

Interestingly, predation and sex mark the differences between life in the Garden and life afterwards. Immediately after Eve shares the apple with Adam, they fall into sex together (no mention in this book whether they had sex prior to the apple). Upon leaving the Garden, they find themselves reduced to predation for food, just like the animals around them. The birth of Cain is from struggle and pain, as it is for the animals around them as well. Cain himself is constantly troubled by ill-temper, a difficult presence for his own mother and father.

Cain is stung by jealousy of Abel's ease and favor, both with their parents and with God. God rewards Abel's seemingly natural (God-given?) gift as a herdsman while disdaining Cain's offerings from the fields. Cain resists subordination in any form, to God or to his parents.

Cain's isolation and disassociation from his parents climaxes with his coming of age sexually and his participatory witnessing of his parents' lovemaking.

Eventually exiled from his father's house -- the book clearly shows the parallel between the expulsion of Adam and Eve from the Garden and Cain from his parents' house and land -- Cain only grows more distant and more difficult, culminating in his murder of Abel.

In the aftermath, Cain is left to pick up the pieces just as Adam and Eve had to do after leaving the Garden. Cain has not been exiled from a Paradise, but from his family and the community of other people.

A good, provocative read.

I enjoyed Maine's unique approach to biblical storytelling in The Book of Samson so I picked this up. As much as I liked Samson, this is far better. Uniquely told in reverse-chronology, the story of the world's first family is epanded to the point where we truly have biblical CHARACTERS - with depth, virtues and failings one might expect to find among those who lost, literally, everything.

As in "Samson," Maine's storylines accept the more fantastic biblical stories as fact, and builds the characters and expanded plot around them. We are not clued in to the metaphorical meaning of the serpent and the fruit - the serpent really did talk Eve into eating the fruit.

The story itself is a fantastic read, all the more impressive since the reader knows exactly where it will end up. But Maine has a deeper purpose: through Adam and Eve, we see the struggle between virtue and pragmatism, between faith and reason. Through Cain, we ponder the nature of sin and evil. The characters make their own defense arguments against what seems to them to be a stacked deck. How, after all, could they understand the concept of sin before they ever had to make choices? How could they be banished from paradise and still show gratitude to their judge?

Maine is an expert at bringing these stories to life - or perhaps bringing life to the stories?

I'm a pretty big fan of this author. His books are not Biblical truths in any way, shape or form, but they are fun to read and force your imagination to consider life as it was for these Bible characters these many thousands of years ago. My favorite book is by far Preservationist (the story of Noah). Also, although the books are not factual, for the most part they do not alter the facts of the Bible but include them in the stories the way they are told. The author fills in the pieces between what we know to be true with possible scenarios. Very well written, interesting and fun books. Please write more of them!

I'm somewhat religious so I had to keep a very open mind reading this book. But it was well written and thought provoking. Definitely a page turner.

Very imaginative to see the world through the eyes of the original inhabitants. I'm going have to read more of his books.
  • Nern
This is a pretty silly little book. Maine tries to unfold a story from the end to the beginning and thereby shed some new light on the Biblical story of Abel and Caine. Unfortunately, the story is just fluff. There is nothing new here. Maine proves what others before him have demonstrated: it is very difficult, if not impossible, to make these stories appealing by merely retelling them.

I am not a religious person, nor am I Christian, but that did not prevent me from enjoying this novel. Beginning with the final days of Cain and moving back in time to Adam and Eve's banishment from the Garden, this book portrays the dusty old Bible stories in a brand new light. Breathing life into these well-known characters in a way no Bible story ever could, Maine reminds us that few people are truly evil and that we all have the potential to commit terrible acts.

The names in this book are all familiar - Adam, Eve, Cain, Abel, God - but their personalities are far more fleshed out and sympathetic than those portrayed in Genesis, and I was left with many more questions than I began with. Was Adam and Eve's crime truly so great as to deserve permanent banishment? How long should a man be punished for the sins of his youth? And just how just is the Christian God really?

Whether you are Christian or not, this is an extremely well-written and entertaining read that you will be unable to put down and I will be recommending it to everybody I come across.
