Dirty Eden review

The Devil gives Norman Reeves an ill-fated mission he has no choice but to accept: Find the center of Eden and reverse the Fall of Man. Thrust into a place called Creation, Norman’s task is plagued by unimaginable people and events. He must unravel impossible clues to free the Three Trees and keep himself out of Hell at the same time. On this surreal and humorous journey, Norman discovers many things better left unknown: the shocking secret lives of people close to him and the other unthinkable reason he was brought here. But should Norman fail, like all visitors to Creation, he will forget everyone and everything he has ever known, becoming part of the madness that was once the paradise of Eden.


Our thoughts:
This was not what I was expecting to read when I looked at the cover. This was a very dark and twisted book like me just kidding. I really enjoyed the imagery the author used to give you a very visual experience in order for the reader to connect with the storyline and characters. I was unable to put the book down because I was afraid that I would miss something pivotal but duh unlike a movie I can go back and reread the pages but I was drawn into it and captivated. Norman is a man who is very bitter in the beginning like most of us he really hates his job and really demeans himself. He must come to terms with his life, family, past, present, and future in a most bizarre way. Can Norman grow from his journey or will he be forever stuck in the rutt that is cycling through. Thank you J.A. Redmerski for allowing me to walk along this dark and twisted pathway with you. I look forward to reading more from you. I highly recommend this for one heck of a twisted roller coaster ride. ~Lisa

 First off, I just have to say that this book is not at all what I expect. I’m not even really quite sure what my expectations were, but still this book seriously blindsided me. For all of you J.A. Redmerski fans out there hoping for something along the line of The Darkwoods Trilogy (romance, light and fun) Don’t. This is an extremely dark and twisted tale. That being said-if you can go into this with an open mind and just feel the story as it’s being told, it has the potential to suck you in completely, making it well worth the read. 4 stars ~Ashley


  1. Never heard of this book or the author before. I really like the synopsis and your review on the book.

    1. Autumn, This is a great read as long as you can go into it completely open minded. It's extremely dark and strange but well worth the chance.
