    A few things to keep in mind before reading Lilith is: it is not for kids, it's a romance (or fairy tale) for adults, and it is a contemporary myth with spiritual and Christian truths. This profound masterpiece is dark and scary, beautiful and powerful. The cover definitely suits the omnious atmosphere of the book, but not everything is darkness. Though at moments we get glimpses of Hellish evil (Lilith, the people of Bulika, the Shadow, the night cats), we also get glimpses of Heavenly goodness (The Little ones, Miriam, Adam and Eve, and Mara). Towards the end of the book, Miriam tries to get Lilith converted, and it is chilling watching Lilith resist God. The reasons why she won't get saved are the exact same reasons many lost people won't get saved, though they may not say them in such bold, proud, presumptuous words. Lilith articulates the very words of resistance that is in the heart of every man or woman that rejects God. But as you will find out when you read the book: with God all things are possible. One of the major themes in this book besides sin, evil, and goodness and innonence is Resurrection Day. Adam constantly challenges Mr. Vane's narrow beliefs about reality and the spiritual realm, and tries to bring him into believing that if he lies down, if he dies with hope in God, he will one day rise again as well.

    This was a most interesting story which was very entertaining but did not seem to have much meaning behind it. That or I missed it, cause most of MacDonald's stuff has depth. Like I said of Phantastes, this book is pure fairy tale, and should not be treated as a novel or more serious story. Note that the whole concept of Adam having a first wife before Eve is very odd, but should not ruin the book.

    Very complicated and mysterious story line. There is a lot of spiritual symbolism in this book, but it would probably require reading more than once to understand it all. I found parts of the book hard to get through, while during other parts I couldn't put the book down. If you like Phantastes, you would like Lilith as well. If you did not enjoy Phantastes, you may not enjoy Lilith either. Id' suggest MacDonald's other fiction books, such as The Princes and The Goblin, for a more defined plot.
