Review: Eve and Adam by Michael Grant and Katherine Applegate
Eve and Adam by Michael Grant and Katherine Applegate
October 2, 2012
Feiwel and Friends
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?
EVE AND ADAM is an unpredictable YA with enough action and hot guys to keep readers engaged. Grant and Applegate use the Adam and Eve lore to their advantage with an imaginative modern spin. While EVE AND ADAM just barely gives us a hint of what is to come, readers won’t be able to stop flipping the pages as new scenarios and twists are introduced. Don’t hesitate to pick this one up!
Eve is a smart and talented girl who is brimming with potential. If only she was smart enough to let go of her so-called friend, Aislin. This girl is obviously using Eve and I had a really hard time reading with everything she did for this unappreciative, not-so-smart girl. However, besides that, Eve was a fantastic character to read about and I enjoyed getting to know her and her potential love interest.
The creation of Adam is so fascinating because who knows what could happen one day. Maybe man will soon be able to create the perfect human with zero flaws. It sounds like it would be a dream come true, but there are always consequences when man kind messes with something they have no business creating. The plot in EVE AND ADAM will really make readers think about the future.
EVE AND ADAM is a fantastic introduction to what will most likely be a hit series. Grant and Applegate are very good at getting readers invested in the outcome of situations that could be dire for the main characters. While I wish they would remove Aislin from the storyline, I really can’t wait for the next book, ADAM AND EVE.
