It's pretty good.....

It may not number among my all time favorites books, but then again I couldn't stop talking about it for two weeks. The Red Tent is REALLY interesting, thought provoking and an awesome story. The Old Testament and I are not exactly close acquaintances but when you put a magnifying glass on a single bible story (this one in particular) and then throw in some provocative fiction it can make for quite a tale. Plus, where there are very few women mentioned in the bible it's interesting having a female perspective, fiction or not. If you choose to take the book on just push through part one, it's kind of slow but it gets way better. Oh, and there is quite a bit of wonky period/becoming a woman talk. So brace yourself for that weirdness.
