The story of Dinah, a tragic character from the Bible whose great love, a prince, is killed by her brother, leaving her alone and pregnant. The novel traces her life from childhood to death, in the process examining sexual and religious practices of the day, and what it meant to be a woman.

    The Handmaid's Tale por Margaret Atwood (wosret, Kaelkivial)
    Kaelkivial: Both stories of strong women who resist (in one form or another) the system that holds them down. Both books fairly fast paced and gripping; acts of violence and loss scattered throughout.
  2. 41
    Ahab's Wife or, The Star-Gazer por Sena Jeter Naslund (sweetbug)
    sweetbug: Both books take minor female characters from great works and create a larger story for them. The two books also deal with similar themes including women who challenge gender rolls and the relationships between mothers (or surrogate mothers) and daughters.

    Zipporah, Wife of Moses por Marek Halter (jordantaylor)
  4. 20
    The Penelopiad: The Myth of Penelope and Odysseus por Margaret Atwood (Utilizador anónimo)
    Utilizador anónimo: The two novels convey the same idea of reclaiming the story of a marginal woman from a great male narrative, telling the story from a new, feminine perspective.
  5. 10
    The Garden of Ruth por Eva Etzioni-Halevy (BookshelfMonstrosity)
    BookshelfMonstrosity: The Red Tent and The Garden of Ruth provide female-centered interpretations of Biblical stories. These books are full of political and familial drama, centered in the early ages of Judaism.

Great book if you like historical fiction. So glad my mom recommended it! ( )

I read the whole Isaac/Jacob/Esau/Joseph Bible story before I read this. Knowing these stories, plus reading through the family tree in the beginning of the Red Tent meant the book didn't hold a lot of surprises in terms of plot. There was still be at least one big surprise, but I knew who was going to marry whom, who would be betrayed, who would have babies, etc.

Still, this book was a joy to read. Sure, Dinah's descriptions of childbirth were sometimes horrifying and some of the characters she met had only evil in their hearts. But, all in all, this book made me feel happy to be a woman. Dinah's story felt epic and at the same time intimate and true.

If you don't know the stories from Genesis about Isaac, Jacob, and Joseph, I think this book will inspire you to go back and read them. It may then spark a debate about whose version of history gets passed down. ( )

Thoroughly enjoyed. It got better the further in I got. Really like the writing style. ( )

I just LOVED this book. The beauty of sisterhood, womanhood and motherhood were so clearly displayed. Taken from the bible the story follows Dinah the youngest of Jacob's children with Leah and his only daughter. It was a powerful and emotional read. ( )

An amazing novel based on Jacob's only daughter, Dinah, referenced in Genesis 34...I'm blown away how the author brought real life to the characters. This is very well written and great storytelling!

I've always seen the characters in the Bible as almost perfect unblemished human beings...patient, kind, loving and always knowing and doing just what the Lord wanted them to do. But, in reality, the bit of harshness and imperfections in the character's that are well known characters of the Bible is probably more truth than not. After all, they are human beings, just like you and me.

Speaking in the first person, as Dinah, herself, the author introduces so many characters into the story in such an easy fluid manner. I never once got lost and by the end of the very first chapter, I really felt like I knew the personalities of all four of Jacob's wives, who were, by the way, also his 1st cousins.

Will soon watch the movie, "The Red Tent" to see how it compares to the book and will return to edit my review.

UPDATE: The movie is very lacking! If I hadn't read the book first, I'm not so sure I would have understood everything in the movie. ( )

The Red Tent instantly drew me in from its very first paragraph. The narrative voice, that of Dinah, reminded me a lot of that of Margaret Atwood’s wonderful Penelopiad which I read last year. It was strong but slightly melancholy and conveyed the same idea of reclaiming the story of a marginal woman from a great male narrative, telling the story from a new, feminine perspective and revealing what ‘really’ happened.

The red tent of the title is the separate tent set aside for the women where they go while menstruating to keep apart from the men. The Red Tent then is a very appropriate title as the book focused almost exclusively on feminine concerns: becoming a woman, giving birth and finding a husband. I appreciated this insight into their secret world and I liked the idea of telling a masculine story to recentre it around the women.

If you want to understand any woman you must first ask about her mother and then listen carefully. Stories about food show a strong connection. Wistful silences demonstrate unfinished business. The more a daughter knows the details of her mother’s life—without flinching or whining—the stronger the daughter.
The men clustered around the baby and placed the tools of the scribe into his little hands. His fingers curled around new reed brushes, and he grasped a circular dish upon which his inks were mixed. He waved a scrap of papyrus in both hands like a fan.
Re-nefer scoured the markets for ... a perfect box in which to put his brushes. She commissioned a sculptor to carve a slate for mixing ink.
He was captivated by the sights of the journey ... he directed my eyes at the sails in the wind, at the harmony of the rowers' oars ... a stand of papyrus that looked like a field of copper in the setting sun.
Maybe you guessed that there was more to me than the voiceless cipher in the text. Maybe you heard it in the music of my name: the first vowel high and clear, as when a mother calls to her child at dusk; the second sound soft, for whispering secrets on pillows. Dee-nah.
