    One thought on “King Solomon's Troubles”

    1. I would definitely read this book again and again. So grateful to have come across this book. May u be blessed more with everything you do #thank you for writing this book.I was looking for another book and this one popped up! I'm so happy that I got it as it is well worth the read.This is a great book. It is really refreshing and enlightening. We really need to go back to these old time books/materials.

    2. I won this book on and was really excited to read the book. I think I must have misread the description, because I thought the entire book was about King Solomon. It is not. It is also about four women in the Middle East and how they view sex.I thought that King Solomon was portrayed as arrogant, because no woman could please him for long. Of the hundreds of wives and concubines, he could not find one woman to converse with. All he wanted was sex. What did he expect? Women were treated as prope [...]

It is fast-paced in some ways, but it also goes deep--we get to read character's thoughts and poetry, as well as read their dialogue with others. There was a psychological slant in this book that made it really fascinating! This book has similarities to the "Red Tent," but where it differs is its story lines of modern Israeli women that a [...]

    4. This book held no suspense or surprise. The reader is told what the character is thinking and why. I thought from the beginning that the female characters were 20 or 30 somethings only to find out in a very left-field way that I was way off. I was disappointed that I couldn't identify with any of the characters. Each chapter jumped around between characters that had little connection to one another and seemed bent on preaching to me rather than showing me. Very little action with the exception o [...]

    5. DNF @ 25%.Life is too short to read terrible books. This is one of them. I quickly tired of the pointless preaching.Long, pointless blocks of text.Just ignore.This book was received, free of charge, from the First Reads program.
