    1. One of my favourite books in the Bible is the story of Esther I mean, it s a classic Cinderella type tale Poor girl who becomes a queen Plus, the fact that she saves her people means that she s way better than most of the Disney princesses i.e all except Mulan And my favourite re telling of the Esther story is Hadassah by Tommy Tenney not that I ve read that many retellings Hadassah is written in the form of a letter from the elderly Queen Esther to a young Queen hopeful, full of advice and her [...]


    2. The actual story of Esther wasn t too bad, I mostly had a problem with the premise This book in scroll form was written by Esther and his been unrolled and signed by every woman descended from her the night before her wedding I m guessing paper that s well over 2,000 years old is in pretty fragile shape The Declaration of Independence is just over 200 years old and it has to be kept in a glass case with all the air sucked out of it That scroll should be dust by now And the women are supposed to [...]


    3. The story of Esther has been one that has always touched me and challenged me To see a woman of such courage, a believer in God, to be led by her heart and her faith in a way that threatened her very life and yet saved all of her people I see such strength in her Such beauty I admire her This book, although fiction, allowed me glimpses into her life and story that inspired me even though they may not be true It is a story that shows God s sovereign hand over our lives and even over our deaths Es [...]


    4. I haven t found a book that I like yet about Old Testament figures, including Orson Scott Card s books I felt like this retelling of the story of Esther was a romance disguised as historical fiction which is really weird, because I have a hard time with the believability of a romance where your husband can arbitrarily have you killed at a moment s notice because you displease him, and he also is sleeping with his harem of 100 concubines Really Sorry, didn t work for me.


    5. I hated this one It s a badly contrived, mostly Christian, look at the traditional biblical tale And to top it off, Esther is of a sexpot than a heroine And blonde Pul leazze Grrr.To see the complete review, please go here epinions content_13339


    6. This book was an okay read for me Here s the scoop If it were strictly a fictitious novel and not historical fiction I would have done better I am told that the author did extensive research on the subject of Queen Esther before writing this book In my opinion, he took his author s liberties way, way too far After I finished reading the bookI reread the actual account in the bible For example, he describes the extremely brutal and gory execution of King Xerxes wife Vashtit in the scriptures just [...]


    7. About first 20% of the book almost made me gave up But once she was hauled into the palace Oh, man I couldn t stop reading I mean, yes, sometimes there were too much information about how beautiful the palace was, a lot of description But it was still interesting to keep me up with it.I ve read Esther in the Bible and it s cool to read about the story again in a novelistic way I love reading about the background of her character, Haman s, and Mordecai s Even Xerxes To see the king as who he was [...]


    8. Hmmm what I will point out here, is that Hadassah One Night with the King was well written and very interesting Very stunning novel based on the book of Esther from the Bible However, I say BASED, because there were a few things that didn t seem quite historically acurate concerning Hadassah and her story And, her search for revenge at the end of the book didn t leave me with a nice feeling.I don t want to completely write it off though A lot of people would enjoy it, I m sure But as for me, the [...]


    9. This book was an enjoyable read, but I m not able to give it four or five stars because the initial setup prologue is cheesy, the writing level seemed to be lower than average adult reading level, and the conflict devices seemed cheesy as well I felt the same say I feel when watching a better than average made for TV movie it was a nice way to pass the time, but nothing I d recommend for high awards Still, I commend the fact that it awakens interest in the original biblical account, and it also [...]



    10. I absolutely loved this book It cleared up some questions that I had in my own mind concerning the story of Esther Would highly recommend.



    11. Het heeft even geduurd voor het verhaal in dit boek me te pakken had Pas zo n beetje halverwege het verhaal vond ik het interessant genoeg worden om door te blijven lezen Of dat dit komt doordat ik het verhaal ook al vanuit de bijbel ken weet ik niet zeker maar ook de schrijfstijl wist me niet altijd helemaal te pakken Ik denk omdat ik kort ervoor een soortgelijk verhaal heb gelezen en dit behoorlijk is blijven hangen dit verhaal me ook iets minder aangreep Het verhaal had uiteindelijk wel een m [...]


    12. This book came highly recommended, and as I love historical fiction and the story of Esther has always been one of my favorites, I couldn t resist.Unfortunately I was highly disappointed I won t go in to the long, long list of things that bothered, frustrated, or downright ticked me off, as other reviewers have done it much better than I could, but I will name a few.First, the language was far too modern The majority of the story is supposed to be copied from a scroll write by Hadassah herself, [...]


    13. Well, I see plenty of negative reviews about this book, so let me just shake that up a bit I thoroughly enjoyed this book I think a key point to remember is that it is based on a historical figure and setting but is still Fictional The author does take some creative liberties, but that is why it is historical fictiont history The character, Esther is fascinating in history and in fiction This novel reveals a creative and unique perspective of the young , Jewish girl who is taken on a wild journe [...]


    14. I get that this is a fiction novel but to take so many liberties with the details of making a biblical story into a novel is repulsive I couldn t bring myself to read beyond the 13th chapter I felt what I was reading was stretched too far First off, Hadassah waking in extreme pain and spilling her whole bed at the onset of her first menses proves Tenney has no clue what this experience is like If he would have talked to even 2 women, he would have discovered how wrong his depiction of getting th [...]


    15. Relatively enjoyable and pretty well written, I guess, but I don t think it was anything special Through all the things I knew were going to happen, I was just like bored, blah, blah, blah, I already know this and through all the added stuff, I was like, HEY THAT WASN T IN THE BIBLE So it was probably partially just me But at the same time, I didn t particularly love any of the characters And because the author added so much, I wasn t sure what I could trust as historically accurate or historica [...]


    16. Awful, awful, awful I read it because I saw a review that said it was like the Red Tent The only similarly is taking a biblical character and building a story around her Beyond that it s sexist, stupid and clearly written by a man In the story, Esther undergoes a transformation from a young girl who doesn t believe in God because her parents were slaughtered to a woman who suddenly trusts everything in God with no explanation of the change in heart and realizes that what HE wants is for her to b [...]


    17. Hadassah is a great book for those who know about the Esther story She was raised by her cousin and she practiced her jewfish religion She was then gathered with other young women to be chosen by the king of that time The king chose Esther But then an evil servant of the king tricks the king to make a law to banish and kill the Jewish people And hadassah was raised around the Jewish world She knew the king loved her so she convinced the king to make another law to help the Jewish The book was a [...]


    18. In a Nutshell Hadassah is a retelling of the book of Esther which attempts but fails to inject personality and romance into a well known Bible story.On of the most poorly written books I ve ever read And a disturbing story that made little sense I like the IDEA of fleshing out the story of Ester, but I do not like the execution of the idea And the flippant discussion of killing all those who MIGHT have persecuted the Jews by royal mandate makes me sick.


    19. This book was obviously written by a man Also, it did seem to pick and choose the facts it wanted to use Probably the most glaring flaw was the outright ethnocentrism having a kind desire slender, straight haired women Saying that what men wanted then are what they want now I didn t care much for those hints at all But it is a decent romance novel for Christian girls, and it did get better after the first 15 chapters.



    20. This was such a good book A brilliantly told story of Esther and King XersesEvery one should read Will make your faith that much stronger


    21. The beginning and end were cheese a rific, but the main story was okay It made me want to learn about Esther, which is always a plus



    22. recommended read this in three hours, Bahasa Indonesia version.Saturday, 3 October 2015 morning, in Depok.



    23. After putting this book aside to concentrate on another read, I picked it back up yesterday and couldn t put it down until I finished it exactly a couple minutes ago I first thought I d let it sink before writing a review, but since I m already on my computer, let s just do it now Synopsis Bestselling author Tommy Tenney expands the extraordinary story of Esther like no novelist has done before Both a thriller and a Jewish woman s memoir, Hadassah takes readers to ancient Persia now known as Ira [...]


    24. This was my first foray into current century Christian fiction, and I must say I was dutifully impressed It was also the first print book I have read in about two years since I got my kindle I enjoyed that too, and plan on getting print books going forward.I was skeptical when I got this book, which I picked up in a used book store When I read a fiction book I look for three things Did it inspire me Entertain me Educate me Hadassah by Tommy Tenney did all three We watch Esther go from a terrifi [...]


    25. I enjoyed this I think I m going to agree with one other reviewer who said that the beginning was hard to get into But, once she gets into the palace I couldn t put it down I think where the writing felt the most awkward was whenever it was from the bad guy s POV But, since that s really not the majority of the book, I could deal with it Overall, very enjoyable read of a beloved Bible story though
