      Actual rating: 1.5 starsBefore there was Harry Potter there was Animorphs. I was in love with that series as a child. It was pretty serious. Half my closest was dedicated with Animorph books and I had a special shelf full of them right next to my bed. And honestly, looking back I'm surprised I didn't have an Animorph shrine a la Helga G. Pataki.Obsessed? I like to think of it as an extreme hobby.So when I saw Eve and Adam go up on NetGalley, I'll admit this freely, I squealed. I waited with bate [...]

      I don't know if it's the cover, or the latest craze of dystopians, but I was sure I was getting into a futuristic sci-fi novel when I started Eve and Adam. After only a few chapters though - confused about the lack of world building - did I suddenly realize that this is actually set in current day. This is not a bad thing at all, but my expectations did a complete 360 to which I ended up pleasantly surprised to have stumbled upon an intriguing sci-fi novel touching on genetics, and full of horri [...]

      "I want you, Evening, to design the perfect boy."3.5 stars. Yes I do believe this is going to have some degree of awesome."What if she won't come with me?""Oh, she'll come. It's the fate of all creators. They fall in love with their creations."What if you had the chance to design the perfect partner? Would you do it? At the very least, would you be curious enough to think about doing it?Anyone else remember the 80's movie Weird Science? I loved that movie as a kid. When I first read the descript [...]

    • Maja (The Nocturnal Library) says:

      2.5 starsIn a sentence, Eve and Adam by the husband-and-wife writing team Katherine Applegate and Michael Grant is a smartly plotted and solidly written book that, unfortunately, lacks both depth and substance. I could be wrong in assuming that it is a packaged book, but even if I am, I’m pretty confident it was written with no real passion for the story. Although I certainly can’t object to the quality of writing itself, the superficiality with which the idea was developed is disappointing [...]

      I'm trying so desperately to find something even slightly redeemable about husband-and-wife team Katherine Applegate and Michael Grant's return to young adult, Eve and Adam, but, as I was trying to think up some positive qualities that this book holds, I only ended up with the pathetic, "Well, it was a quick read", and the equally as pathetic, "I guess it was original" Clearly those two accolades - the only ones I can provide at the time, mind you - aren't the most enthusiastic, but this book wa [...]

      The Short Story? -One of the best books I've read this year, Eve and Adam is definitely an extraordinary sci-fi with an original premise and beautiful characterisation. Interesting, edgy and fast paced, I completely devoured this novel in one sitting. I have nothing but good things to say about this novel, written by two of YA's greatest authors, what could simply go wrong? Eve and Adam is a must read! The Long Story? -One of ritual things to do before writing a review is to read the reviews on [...]

      I actually wrote out a half assed attempt at a review for this but then ate it. The gist: this was really boring and really annoying and I hated all the characters. Yeah.Things I didn't like: - there was no sense of suspense. Like, at all.- the pacing was bizarre- Solo was a creep- so was Adam- Evening wasn't the sharpest tool in the box, and disliked people for weird resons. Sorry but you don't get to mock people for their names if your name is Evening!! She actually didn't seem to like anythi [...]

      Eve and Adamiswell, it wasn't what I was expecting. I went into this novel confident that it would be yet another sci-fi novel that would fail to surprise me and after the first few chapters, I thought I had the romance and plot figured out. WellI hate to admit this, but I was wrong and I amsoglad I was!Eve and Adam,contrary to my expectations,didmanage to be an exciting, intriguing, and unique novel - all aspects that make it stand out in its over-populated genre. Yet, despite its redeeming qua [...]

    • Cait (Paper Fury) says:

      I have a secret weakness for dystopian. It’s cool, okay? So after crunching my way through novels such as Matched, Starters, Legend, Divergent (and countless, countless others), I'm looking for something a little…different. Eve and Adam looked the perfect remedy. And with a cover like that, who wouldn’t pick it up?Without hesitation, I say it’s a good book. It’s well written, with a quirky voice you can’t argue with. Co-authoring seems like tricky business, but these two writers (Gra [...]

    • Elise (TheBookishActress) says:

      2 stars. I can't believe Michael Grant was a contributor to this cliche mess. Basically, this book was just a walking cliche without any depth of characterization. The romance is full of insta-love with zero chemistry whatsoever. There's even a love triangle. What's ironic is that the book is trying to break cliches with its love story; the perfect boyfriend might not necessarily be Eve's choice. But it doesn't work because her choice of boyfriend comes after nothing but instalove. This could al [...]

    • Melanie says:

      I know she's checking me out. Fair enough, because I'm checking her out."Ah ahhh ahhhh!"Eve cries out suddenly. She's in pain. Bad pain. So it's possible she's not really checking me out.I really do hope that sums up why the hell I decided to give this one star. I have no patience at the moment, so maybe it would have received higher on a different day.Full review to come

    • Marcia says:

      Eve & Adam is een vlot lezend jeugdboek over genetische modificatie. Een tof onderwerp, maar helaas niet bijster origineel uitgewerkt. Meerdere keren gedurende het lezen kreeg ik het gevoel dat ik dit verhaal al eerder had gelezen. De personages komen erg jong over, waardoor ik denk dat dit boek prima geschikt is voor de leeftijdscategorie 12 tot 14 jaar. Voor mij persoonlijk miste er net iets van diepgang en een climax. Een prima boek voor de zondagmiddag, maar helaas ook niet meer dan dat. [...]

    • Wendy Darling says:

      This is one of those lukewarm "it's not you, it's me" cases, I think.I read until around 100 pages and skimmed a bit further, but this one just didn't grab me. I didn't feel a connection with the characters and it felt as though a few things were too obviously set up--very fast--in the beginning of the book. I've since read a couple of reviews that seem to indicate that the second half of the book is better, with more action and development, and that the story isn't as predictable as I thought i [...]

    • Megan says:

      Call me Snake SOLORomance, science, genetic tinkering, and hot boys. The synopsis had me after one line, but EVE & ADAM is a bit of a mystery to me. Maybe I went in with strange expectations, or maybe the blurb is misleading, but I expected something a bit different expectations than I should have. Expecting genetic experimentation, the future, and a girl creating her perfect boy, what I got was… Okay, fine, I pretty much got what I was anticipating, just in a different form. But maybe it [...]

      So this is supposed to be, according to the blurb, all about Eve and the perfect boy she creates, right? WRONG. It's told in alternating chapters from the viewpoints of Eve and Solo. What? Who's Solo? Yeah, he's the guy that (view spoiler)[Eve ends up with (hide spoiler)]. More spoilers:(view spoiler)[At the beginning, Eve is in some weird crash, and she sees her leg fly off, she's been trundled into hospitals, things are happening all around her, it's quite hectic.

    • Braiden says:

      Fairly quick and straight-forward read. Something aimed at readers between Gone and BZRK – at least that’s what I think. I find it is a lighter BZRK just dealing with genetic manipulation rather than biots and nanobots etc.---------‘What if she won’t come with me?”‘Oh, she’ll come,’ Terra Spiker says. ‘It’s the fate of all creators; they fall in love with their creations.’The first thing I did earlier this year when I found out about this book was squee like tomorrow was ne [...]

      3.5 StarsWith the likes of Cinder, Unravelling, Obsidian—not to mention dystopian as a genre—it seems sci-fi’s been making a comeback of late. But while hi-tech, high-stakes and twisty plots are to sci-fi what teen angst and pointy teeth are to paranormal, sometimes, it’s just fun—and the Grant/Applegate dream-team deliver ‘fun’ in Eve and Adam by the bucket-load.The Story:Evening Spiker expects to wake up dead after she mangles an arm, loses a leg and a whole lot of blood in a bru [...]

    • Mitch says:

      KA Applegate is my childhood hero but Eve and Adam almost gave me a scare. Sure, much of what I fondly remember about Animorphs and Everworld made it into this book, the cheeky humor, the obvious and not so obvious pop culture references, and especially the moral shades of gray that’s complicated but not preachy, but the first hundred pages or so just felt off. Luckily, the chapters go by quickly and I found a lot to like by the end of the book, although my overall impression is probably still [...]

      livetoread-krystalFrom the get go, I knew I would like this book. The cover alone tipped me off to expect an exciting plot and a lot of action. Evening “E.V.” Spiker is the daughter of a Biopharmaceuticals mogul-scientist. After being in a horrible accident, E.V. goes to stay at the Spiker research facility while she heals. To keep E.V. occupied, Terra Spiker, E.V.’s mother, has E.V. test new software for the company. E.V. will be “playing God” and building a Sim person on the computer [...]

      "Oh instalove, how do I loathe thee? Let me count the ways."This wasn't really bad. It was, though, a light fluff of a story that uses genetic engineering as an invisible skeleton to pack romance, familial issues, and a few insubstantial characters around. There's nothingting, unique about this story. It recycles a bunch of what's already been done in the genre (plus romance), which bored me. Kind of skipped through the ending. Basically what's been said in other reviews.Mostly, though, I think [...]

    • Kim says:

      I love those books that keep you up at night and you think about long after you have read them. This is not the case with this book. The only good thing is that it is a fast read and not many pages. I am not even sure what the hell I just read. The ending wrapped up so fast that it left you hanging with the words Why the hell did I just waste my time reading this book?!!! Grrrrrrrrr!

      What an incredible book

    • Charlotte says:

      Eve and Adam was supposed to be a book about how our protagonist, Evening, created a perfect man. Except that turned out to be a slow and unexciting plot line. It really started off with E.V. (as she likes to be called) getting in a car accident, and waking up in the hospital where a strange boy is checking her out. Checking her out in more ways the one (more on that later.) The boy, Solo, takes her back to Spiker Bio, E.V.'s mom's company. E.V. is confined there, and her mother tasks her with c [...]

      3.5/5Mon avis en FrançaisMy English review I was quite surprised by this novel as I did not expect that at all. This is a rather original way to reclaim the myth of Adam and Eve.Evening is a girl like any other until the accident that completely changed everything in her life. Indeed her leg was completely damaged and destroyed during this event and the doctors do not know what they can do to really help her. Therefore, her mother decides to take Evening in the genetic center she runs with an i [...]

      OMGGGGG. I AM FANGIRLING SO HARD RIGHT NOW I CAN'T EVEN. Funny story: I was writing and then I fell asleep and when I woke up, I just started writing like I didn't spent the past five hours drenched in irrelevant sweat and my laptop still playing I Want You To Know (and I don't know the truth but maybe my sister now has the lyrics memorized because it was just on repeat, for full five hours) and then changed the playlist into a random selection of Taylor Swift songs. I ended up just staring at T [...]

      More like 1.5From the "Final Thoughts" portion of my review:Eve and Adam just wasn’t for me apparently. It might have been a case of my expectations of the book versus what I got. I was expecting some really crazy science fiction story with deep meaning and exploration of mortality and playing God and I just didn’t really get that at all. It was less serious and more funny — which is fine but just not at all what I was hoping for with an AMAZING premise like that. I don’t know. the time [...]

      Did a video review for this one, but basic thoughts are:*2.5 - Really mixed. *Very fast read. (Very fast. Like, maybe it should have been slower so that things could happen in ways that made sense.)*Sometimes funny, but often flat.*3 characters, 2 authors, and yet only one voice among them*Rapey scientist says what?*The end.Click to view the review, yo!

    • Esther says:

      You know that sound when you give the wrong answer in a game show? That sound really fits this bookThe story just had me like "meeehh" The characters were shallow, the whole story wasn't exciting enough. The ending was weak. The story isn't believable, the relationships between the characters are unreal and how they react to each other is just anoying.This book had so much promise but there was a lack of depth, humour, romance, excitement, mystery and action for me All ingredients that this book [...]
