Eve [Book Review]

Genre - Christian Fiction
Year Published - 2015 [*9/15/15]
Length - 3,488 digital (Kindle App) pages (based on my Samsung Galaxy Note 3)
Written by Wm. Paul Young

'The Shack' shattered our limited perceptions about God.
'Eve' will destroy  harmful misconceptions about ourselves.

Rating: 3 Skulls

Plot Summary:
When a shipping container washes ashore on an island between our world and the next, John the Collector finds a young woman inside - broken, frozen, and barely alive.
With the aid of Healers and Scholars, John oversees her recovery and soon discovers her genetic code connects her to every known human race.
She is a girl of prophecy and no one can guess what her survival may mean.

No one but Eve, Mother of the Living, who calls her "daughter", and invites her to witness the truth about her story - indeed, the truth about us all.

This book is completely different from Young's prior works ('The Shack' & 'Cross Roads') - this one has a slight sci-fi feel to it, and to be completely honest, it was just an okay read. For me, it did not live up to the expectations that the above tagline set.

The book is still an interesting read, just not what I was expecting. I get what Young is attempting to convey, it just seemed a strange way to do it. The last chapter helped raise the book slightly above average. I would have liked for there to have been more, like that, afterwards.

If you are a fan of Young, then by all means, give this book a shot - it may just be me...
