    The Handmaid's Tale de 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 de 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.
  3. 20
    Zipporah, Wife of Moses de Marek Halter (jordantaylor)
  4. 20
    The Penelopiad: The Myth of Penelope and Odysseus de Margaret Atwood (Usuário anônimo)
    Usuário anônimo: 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 de 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.
  6. 10
    Wisdom's Daughter: A Novel of Solomon and Sheba de India Edghill (BookshelfMonstrosity)
    BookshelfMonstrosity: Wisdom's Daughter and The Red Tent bring the Bible to life for modern readers through their historically detailed and emotional retelling of two stories of love and family honor. Additionally, both are viewed and interpreted through a women's perspective.… (mais)

    Miss Garnet's Angel de Salley Vickers (KayCliff)
    KayCliff: Both are novels featuring Old Testament stories.
  8. 00
    The Blood of Flowers de Anita Amirrezvani (elbakerone)

Yikes! A bit smokey in parts--especially part I, with all things procreative--but then the hint that this will be the case is in the title--I just didn't realize it until I started listening to it. (That will teach me to read the summary of what a book's about!) It felt a bit overdone in that regard, but maybe that's just me. It's otherwise a very captivating historical fiction based on the biblical Jacob, his wives, and his progeny. ( )

Great book if you like historical fiction. So glad my mom recommended it! ( )
  mjphillips | Feb 23, 2024 |
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. ( )

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.
