Book Review: Blood of Adam (Generations of Noah Series Book 1)



Review of Blood of Adam

(Generations of Noah Series Book 1) by Rachel S. Neal

Book Review by Eve Culley

I found this book to be very interesting and can safely include the ending of this story as it is one that almost everyone has heard before.


However, the twist is that this is a fictionalized account of the lives of Noah and his family following the Bible story. The story begins before the flood with the procuring of materials for the building of the ark, the arrival of the animals God sent, and ends with the family in the ark waiting for the waters to recede. At the end of the book is a thought-provoking Q&A on Noah, the animals, and possible explanations of the events.

Blood of Adam includes the customs of the day, spice and perfume markets, selling of farmers produce, and the temple practices with the other gods worshipped by the people of Noah’s town. Also included is why Noah was compelled to preach, the huge undertaking and completion of building the ark, and of the probable attitude of the people toward Noah’s family along with the jeering and verbal insults of barrenness hurled at the women of Noah’s family by the townsfolk.

The people in the book are presented as humans who are following God’s plan with all the pitfalls that includes. Overall Ms. Neal has, in my humble opinion, done justice to Noah and his family. I would encourage you to read this book.
