Publisher’s summary: 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 take: I am completely blown away by this book! I didn’t at all expect to love it as much as I do. I knew that I would love this book pretty much from the very first paragraph, and pretty much right from that very first page, I was noting in my brain one quote after another (after another!) that I knew I would want to blurb about in my review. Problem is, if I posted a blurb of all the parts in the book that I loved…it wouldn’t be a blurb, it would be pretty much the whole book! And isn’t that called plagiarism? LOL
Why do I think this book rocks? First, the writing is amazing! The first person dialog is tremendously entertaining. I was extremely compelled, literally cracking up, and in utter awe, in only the first 10 pages! I was so impressed that I immediately jumped on twitter to express my feelings.
The next thing I loved about Eve & Adam is the amazingly well-developed characters. I would have to say that Evening is probably my favorite character. Her inner dialog was by far the most entertaining! But Solo’s and Adam’s dialog was perfect as well. Who am I kidding? All of the characters that play a part in the book were astonishing.
Best of all, the storyline was outstanding! Right from the very first page, to the very last, I was determined to find out what was going to happen. And even though I really had no idea of what to expect, I was completely blindsided by the big twist near the end.
To top it all off, I was completely unaware that there is going to be a sequel to Eve & Adam! But even before I knew about the sequel, I was very much content with how the storyline ended. Of course, if I did have the sequel in hand, as soon as I finished Eve & Adam I would not have gone to bed until I started reading the second book!
