    PDF Eleanor De Jong Õ PDF Jezebel PDF ¸ Õ cloudunblock.co jezebel mobile, Jezebel PDF/EPUBI expected to love this book because I enjoy historical fiction and especially biblical fiction very much This novel did have some good things going for it an unusual perspective on the Bible an easy to read style and some clever plot twists However it had several serious drawbacks in my opinion many examples of slopp

    PDF Eleanor De Jong Õ PDF Jezebel PDF ¸ Õ cloudunblock.co jezebel mobile, Jezebel PDF/EPUBThe name Jezebel is so known but I do not know anything about the woman other than the loose image I do not know her story or her place in history Whilst I am realistic enough to know that this is fiction and has been written as a 'love' story within history I found myself drawn and in to Jezebel's story and environment Removing all the 'romance' and cleanses of the story telling I recognised that Jezebel has her place in the history of the bible and of that region I am determined to know of her I put the book down with a sadness

    PDF Eleanor De Jong Õ PDF Jezebel PDF ¸ Õ cloudunblock.co jezebel mobile, Jezebel PDF/EPUBJezebel I loved reading the book A much despised figure in the Bible The author takes a sympathetic view of the ueen and writes a nicely carved story which is probably absolutely fiction but the good point she makes is on the dangers of a fanatically driven state The book reminds us that these dangers are very relevant in today's world A very readable book

    PDF Eleanor De Jong Õ PDF Jezebel PDF ¸ Õ cloudunblock.co jezebel mobile, Jezebel PDF/EPUBI came to this story as it had been chosen for a book club I belong to Since the subject matter is getting close to the period I like to write about it is set only a few hundred years later and in

    PDF Eleanor De Jong Õ PDF Jezebel PDF ¸ Õ cloudunblock.co jezebel mobile, Jezebel PDF/EPUBJezebel a princess of Tyre is to marry King Ahab of Israel but not before she has an affair with Jehu a visiting prince that leaves her pregnant with his child As she moves to Israel she finds herself at odds with their customs and their religion whilst meanwhile trying to protect the identity of her son’s true fatherCompared to how she is depicted in the Bible this rendition is much in favour of Jezebel Some of this is due to a liberal artistic licence and changing certain events For example in the Bible Jezebel gives the order to kill Naboth for not handing over his land whereas in the book the order comes from the prophet and land he does not own yet This would make her seem likable than the prophets in the bookKeeping in mind that the writers of the Bible and the prophets would have found Jezebel a significant threat to their religion it is not unreasonable that

    PDF Eleanor De Jong Õ PDF Jezebel PDF ¸ Õ cloudunblock.co jezebel mobile, Jezebel PDF/EPUBI have mixed feelings about this book on the one hand I like the way that the Biblical figure of Jezebel is fleshed out; on the other I don't like the way that the prophets Elijah and Elishah as depicted as dirty old men with designs on Jezebel herself I think this is definitely a very romanticised view of Jezebel and if you don't know your Bible or want just to accept this as a piece of fiction then you'll probably enjoy iy It's certainly worth reading but I found the author's depiction of Jud

    PDF Eleanor De Jong Õ PDF Jezebel PDF ¸ Õ cloudunblock.co jezebel mobile, Jezebel PDF/EPUBDisclaimer I read this a while ago so I can't recall specifics just the impressions the book made on me Which may be slightly off I would go back and reread it but honestly I can't manage the slog right now when there are far interesting reads Maybe one day if so I'll update this reviewSo Jezebel was okayI love iconic strong women of influence through history I could binge read on the various Egyptian princesses and Chief Royal wives all day and was looking for the same political intrigue exotic flavour and vibrant characters in JezebelIt partially delivered but I found the character of Jezebel a little tooummpolished? Desired by all clever and compassionate victimised for her religion Yes I can see that this woman would have a pretty hard time of it being thrown into the somewhat xenophobic land of the Jews I don't say this as a criticism of the religion of Judaism but as a cultural observation Other

    PDF Eleanor De Jong Õ PDF Jezebel PDF ¸ Õ cloudunblock.co jezebel mobile, Jezebel PDF/EPUBDNF on page 98 I had high hopes for this Jezebel is an incredibly famous name but her story? Not so much Although going into this I knew it is historical fiction but it didn't change the fact that I was super excited to read about Jezebel and the conflicts between the kingdoms and whatnot The beginning was promising featuring Jezebel realising she has to get married Right this is fairly typical for historical fiction; cue the angst and the I don't want to get married yet bullshit However she just accepts it so that's a bit of a change What I don't like is that we aren't given a lot of time to actually like Jehu before she goes and falls into bed with him Also what the fuck? I know he's your supposed intended but have you ever heard of a thing called pregnancy?And surprise surprise she winds up pregnant and only discovers it en route

    PDF Eleanor De Jong Õ PDF Jezebel PDF ¸ Õ cloudunblock.co jezebel mobile, Jezebel PDF/EPUBI have always loved Biblical stories So I was looking forward in reading this book and I was not disappointed It is easy and fast paced to read and the novel is full of historical details in relation to the wars taking place at that time and the different cultures of the Judaens the Israelites and the Phoenicians I must admit that I did not know anything about Jezebel's story and this novel left me intrigued That's the beauty of historical fiction I guess The historical accuracy is however very debatable some of the events describe
