God is mostly pleased with her creation, except for one small snag. Eve and Adam, who were put upon the earth to be the parents of humankind, don’t exactly see eye to eye. Eve is a gatherer of words and knowledge, while Adam is . . . just Adam; totally self-absorbed and not in a mood for ‘talking.’ God puts the angel Lucifer in charge of setting things right—or else. Lucifer has 11 hours and 11 minutes to get things back on track. But, he has a handicap, or a blind spot, he doesn’t want ‘his’ children to know love, which is essential if they are to procreate, because if they know love, they will also know hate and despair. Because he loves them so much, he wants to spare them the misery of such knowledge. He has a devil of a dilemma.
If you’re one of those people who are sold on the traditional, patriarchal, vengeful god of the Old Testament, and the belief that mankind was born in ‘sin,’ and Eve’s betrayal by the Serpent in the Garden of Eden, you’ll find Lucifer Eve and Adam: the absolutely true and completely honest story of Creation by Peter Wilkes and Catherine Dickey Wilson disturbing. This little story, inspired by Mark Twain’s Eve’s Diary, told in cinematic form, gives an alternate version of the Garden of Eden story that is far from the version you learned in Sunday school.
A thoroughly entertaining, and provocative tale that nails the difference between the genders square on the head of the nail upon which an uncounted number of angels—led by the dapper Lucifer—dance. It might challenge your beliefs, and depending upon those beliefs, might even upset you. On the other hand, if you have an open mind, it might just give you food for thought. Whatever, it will surely entertain you.
A five-star concept executed in five-star style.
