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?
I bought this book on bookoutlet for about $2. This is a very fast paced book and shouldnt take long to read, ive just had a busy month. In some circumstances a fast paced book is a good thing, in the case of Eve & Adam it is not. I thought it was fast paced and it took me about 3 weeks to finish. If I had finished it sooner i could only imagine how i would have felt. I read rushed and not thought out. I had the impression that the idea was really interesting but when trying to execute the story line, the ideas disappeared and it was just finished as best it could. It wasnt a very developed story and the characters were all mediocre. I didn’t feel any emotion to any of them and just thought the whole thing was corny. If you are going to title a book Eve & Adam, you have to know that you are putting yourself high on the expectancy scale.
The science was interesting coming from someone who knows little of science. With that being said, the way it was described, it wasnt very believable. The idea of a girl conveniently being named Evening having to simulate a human and her friend choosing to name it Adam was just flat to me. I wasnt actually expecting anyone in the book to have the names Eve or Adam. The ending seemed so hurry and unbelievable and a little boring and definitely abrupt. This book goes on the unhaul list.
