Beautiful soul, beautiful book. After I read this historical novel about Salome, the girl who demanded the head of John the Baptist, I picked up the New Testament to read how the Biblical account compared with the novel To my surprise, Salome is not mentioned by name, and the accounts only two in Matthew and Luke are brief Gormley did a lot of research into the history and cultures of the time to flesh out the Blblical bare bones of this story Her Salome is a somewhat naive young girl who gradually comes to realize that After I read this historical novel about Salome, the girl who demanded the head of John the Baptist, I picked up the New Testament to read how the Biblical account compar If I D Never Hoped To Live In A World Of Goodness And Truth If The Priestess Of Diana, Then Leander, And Joanna, Hadn T Shown Me Glimpses Of It Maybe I Wouldn T Have Minded Being Shut Out Of It Maybe The Preacher S Death Wouldn T Have Trapped Me In A Dungeon, The Dungeon Of My Own Self.Her Name Is Salome You May Think You Know Her Story How Her Seductive Dance Of The Seven Veils Led To The Beheading Of John The Baptist But You Don T Know It From Her Side You Don T Know How A Web Of Betrayal, And Greed, And Desire Was Spun Around An Innocent Teenage Girl How She Came To Doubt Her Own Mother How She Searched For A Friend In An Unfamiliar Land And How She Walked Into A Trap That Changed The Course Of History.This Is Salome S Story, In Her Own Words Listen, And Learn Of Strength, Of Power, Of Loyalty And Of Death. Interesting, but somehow less complex than it should have beenSalome is infuriating as a main character, because she doesn t think for herself But then I remembered, she can t be muchthan 13 or 14 when the whole John the Baptist s head thing takes place, and also she s constantly treated a pretty pawn and not encouraged to think for herself really It definitely reminds me of Shabanu and other books featuring this type of weird power dynamic of the underage girl and the greedy old man Interesting, but somehow less complex than it should have beenSalome is infuriating as a main character, because The misleading cover depicts Salome as preteen girl playing dress up in the 1980 s rather than a young woman living in the Roman Empire at the beginning of the Common Era, so the reader might not expect this to be the story of the Salome who did the dance of seven veils for her step father, a King Herod, and then asked for the head of John the Baptist on a platter as a reward Her mother put her up to it, the poor little fool Salome is mediocre historical fiction on an interesting subject The The misleading cover depicts Salome as preteen girl playing dress up in the 1980 s rather than a young woman living in the Roman Empire at the beginning of the Common Era, so the reader might not expect this to be the story of the Salome who did the d I really, really enjoyed this book I was surprised that I even found it interesting because historical biblical novels are like the death ray to a reader like me I loved the way the writer kept the flow and the wording in step with the times I do understand that some people who are raving historians may find the story lacking in some areas but if you read it with an open mind and for the sheer enjoyment, you will find yourself flipping pages so easily that you won t realize you ve come to the I really, really enjoyed this book I was surprised that I even found it interesting because historical biblical novels are like the death ray to a reader like me I loved the way the writer kept the flow and the wording in step with the times I do understand that some people who are raving historians may find the story lacking in some areas but if you read it with an open mind and for the sheer enjoyment, you will find yourself flipping pages so easily that you won t realize you ve come to the end of the book I thoroughly enjoyed learning about Salome and her family struggles Her mother, a power hungry, persuasive spinster, was the least likeable character for me, evenso than Antipas I guess, the ugliness of how ways and how she used everyone around her just dug deep into me as I read like a nail in the sole of your shoe Antipas was also power hungry and self absorbed but he was expected to be as a ruler in I didn t realize this was a young adult novel when I began reading it Even so, for many who don t have a solid grasp on life in the early A.D time, this drew a nice picture of the viewpoint from that of a young princess Whether Salome was as naive in reality is hard to know, but the author is careful to add the facts that do exist to the post script, something I appreciate.Salome is the daughter of Herodias, one of many in the large family of King Herod Forced to do as she is told, and livin I didn t realize this was a young adult novel when I began reading it Even so, for many who don t have a solid grasp on life in the early A.D time, this drew a n I won this book through Goodreads Giveaways Mid way through the book I was thinking that I didn t like this book that much because Salome, the primary character was a young girl that was passive and without depth, and so far the story was an overview of what was happening around her and TO her however, the last few chapters were redemptive and interesting Salome sees her mother and step father for what they are and despite limitations of her age, experience, and the culture and time in which I won this book through Goodreads Giveaways Mid way through the book I was thinking that I didn t like this book that much because Salome, the primary character was a young girl that was passive and without depth, and so far the story was an overview of what Salome
