Praise for the Books of David Maine:
"David Maine's "Fallen" builds suspensefully toward what is arguably the best-known episode in the story of mankind: the banishment of Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden. Given the fact that its denouement will surprise exactly nobody, this book's power to rivet the reader approaches the miraculous."
--"The New York Times"
"A work of both high seriousness and wicked laughs."
--"Entertainment Weekly" on "Fallen"
"Maine is enormously talented at extrapolating rich characters from a few brief verses."
--"The Washington Post" on "Fallen"
"Artful and challenging...the topic is fascinating, and Maine's writing is suffused with an economical beauty."
--"The Tampa Tribune" on "Fallen"
"Think "Life of Pi" thousands of years earlier with a much larger cast of characters...this debut is a winner."
--"Publishers Weekly" (starred review) on "The Preservationist"
"Maine's storytelling is as human as it is divine."""
"--Los Angeles Times Book Review "on" The" "Preservationist"
"Maine works a minor miracle by affecting a tone that is as respectful as it is insightful."
--"People" magazine on "Fallen"
