Eve and Adam by Michael Grant and Katherine Applegate

Eve and AdamTitle: Eve and Adam
Author(s): Michael Grant and Katherine Applegate
Release Date:
Publisher: Feiwal and Friends
Pages: 193
Format: Ebooks

Synopsis(Goodreads): And girl created boy…

In the beginning, there was an apple—

And then there was a car crash, a horrible injury, and a hospital. But before Evening Spiker’s head clears a strange boy named Solo is rushing her to her mother’s research facility. There, under the best care available, Eve is left alone to heal.

Just when Eve thinks she will die—not from her injuries, but from boredom—her mother gives her a special project: Create the perfect boy.

Using an amazingly detailed simulation, Eve starts building a boy from the ground up. Eve is creating Adam. And he will be just perfect... won’t he?

My Review: I was disappointed my Eve and Adam. I liked the plot but there were parts in this book that had me confused and lacking interest.

The plot was my favorite part of this book. It was really interesting and had some twists that I didn't really see coming. I loved the action and suspense of it, and the first line of the book really set the tone for what it was going to be like. When Eve is walking across the street and gets hit by a car, my mind was going 100 miles a minute trying to figure out what was going to happen. The plot was totally awesome.

I thought the characters were okay. I thought that they were flat with no real emotion. I mean, when Eve got hit my a car and her leg got blown off she was just okay with it. I didn't like that at all. And Solo just ot on my nerves. He acted cocky and smart, but in the end he wasn't smart at all. He was just anoying the entire way through. I also didn't think the romance between Eve and Solo was any good either. It was emotionless and boring, and they were both so hot and cold about it. I didn't like it at all.

The writing style was also really annoying. This book was told in alternating perspectives, and that really bugged me. You have to do alternating perspectives well for me to like it, and I felt that this book didn't have it. When I had to go to school and came back later to read, I didn't know who was talking and it would take me a good page and a half to figure it out again. I also hated how the characters thoughts jumped around so much. They could be thinking about sending information out into the world and the next minute they could be thinking about how beautiful Eve's hair looked in the wind. I was not a fan of it.

Rating: 3/5
I loved the plot, but the writing style and characters bugged me. But if you're willing to over look the poor writing and characters, you might like this book.

Hey guys. This month I'm participating in NaNoWriMo. If you don't know what that is, click on the link here. But if you do know, you know I'm trying to write a 50,000 word novel in the month of November.
So here's the scoop. Because I'm writing a novel, I probably won't have as much time to post and read. But stick with me. I will be back in December ready to blog my heart out.
