Eve & Adam by Michael Grant and Katherine Applegate
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? (taken from goodreads.com)
This was a half and half book for me. I half liked it, and I half hated it.
What I liked about it: It was a really cool concept. This girl can make a boy however she wants him to look and act. She can even pick his personality. That’s pretty cool I think. I liked the plot most of the time too. It was kind of a quick pace but it suited the book.
What I didn’t like: First of all, the writing wasn’t as great as it could have been. It wasn’t too bad but it wasn’t amazing, which is what I expect in a book. Secondly, even though she can make whatever guy she wants, naturally she makes a really good-looking stupid guy. Very typical of her. Also I didn’t really like the characters all that much. They were all very predictable and bland. Usually I fall in love with at least one character but I only liked these ones.
Basically this book could have been so much more. There was so much potential to the story and then the authors killed it with a typical love triangle and a slutty best friend.
I’m giving it a 3 out of 5.
“Oh, Snap,” I say. “What?” “Sorry. I was flashing back to 2005.
