  • This book is expensive, the plot is so so and predictable, the character development is fitting for a child s fairy tale the good are very good and the bad are very bad , and there are numerous, long, and repetitive passages of dubious theology The language is terrible and the book contains explicit sexual scenes It is not available for Kindle The book contains a music CD with 6 tracks on it which is OK, but obviously contributes to the cost.So why five stars Simply because this book is the best [...]


  • Heaven is a bold story about a stripper who finds spirituality through her dancing It s an interesting, unique idea, and I applaud Kimberly Cain because she doesn t play it safe, doesn t portray strippers as pathetic, victims of society or weak willed woman who should be ashamed of their sexuality Cain actually tells a story of empowerment in an unorthodox but very real setting Bravo for that The writing style was hit and miss, but I applaud the idea and effort this story is no easy sell, but I [...]


  • The word that keeps coming back to me when I think about Kimberly Cain s novel Heaven is enthusiasm Whatever the subject matter be it sex and sensuality, or religion and the role of Christ, or music and dancing Cain and her characters tackle it with a fervor As the novel develops, this becomes both a strength and an unfortunate weakness, as plot and subtlety are sacrificed to belabor points the author finds important.Heaven is the story of Eve not the Eve of the Bible, but Eve the exotic dancer, [...]


  • This is a First Reads book The author told me this book was not for everyone, and I would have to agree, but I would also say too bad, because there is a really astonishing and profound message in this This is the unlikely story of the incredible and almost unwavering spirituality of an exotic dancer, Eve Having lost her parents as a teen and been fostered by repressed religious foster parents, she has somehow come out of her past all the stronger for her experiences She is now a stripper who us [...]


  • Somewhere in America tonight, a teenage girl will cry herself to sleep with the thought, If God didn t want me to have sex, why did he make me this way Conservative Christianity puts all women in this untenable position, deemed evil for those very traits which bring new life into the world, forced to take all the blame for Original Sin Adam can pass the blame to Eve and consider himself absolved, and his male descendants can blame and despise their sisters, mothers and wives forever Just being f [...]


  • I m so excited to be releasing my first novel I m really looking forward to hearing from the GoodReads community as the novel makes its way into the world I know that community is what will propel Heaven to find its audience I spent a decade writing, researching, surveying, editing, then publishing Heaven A cool music CD EP comes with the novel Music was my muse my accompaniment to the writing process It is a major part of my life is also a major theme of the novel, so it made sense for the book [...]


  • I seriously love the premise, but had too many issues staying hooked into the story that I eventually gasp stopped reading it altogether I even tried going back to it later on recently , but had a hard time even getting drawn in As an avid reader, I m typically too stubborn to give up on a book Also, I received this book as part of a giveaway through First Reads and felt obligated to give it my all Additionally, I did not want to leave a negative review for a debut novel especially given how muc [...]


  • I m very disappointed to say I didn t enjoy this book one bit I thought it was very boring and I had to force myself to finish it All it seemed to be about is stripping and foul language I didn t enjoy it being told in first person narrative either I wanted to like this book but I just didn t I won this book in the Firstreads giveaway in exchange for an honest review.



  • Although i applaud her for stepping out of the box, i can not get into this book I really did want to like it but, i don t think i will be able to finish it.
