A part of me isn't sure where to begin with what didn't work for me with Eve and Adam. Was it the characters?
The plot? The slut-shaming? The insta-love? I think I've come to the conclusion that it's actually two things that stood out the most: 1.
Show, don't tell. Right from the beginning we are told about Evening's accident and how horrible it is. And as the novel goes on, it is referenced a few times, but with the same old, "It was so horrible.
I lost a leg. It wasn't necessarily terribly important, but it did bother me. This is also done with Solo's dislike for Eve's mother, Terra Spiker.
As a boy he lost both of his parents in a car accident and Terra Spiker his parents' employer ended up looking after him. He constantly says how evil she is, how he hates her, etc.
But we never actually see proof of that evil beyond what he tells the reader. Sure, she wasn't the friendliest character in the book, but it didn't equate to the evil that he accuses her of.
Then of course we have Le Hottie McHottiekins, A. Adam, the perfect boy Eve has been tasked to create while she recovers from her accident.
We are told over and over how incredibly gosh-darn howt he is. And when he goes out in the world looking for Eve, everyone - male and female - stops what they are doing for a moment of silence for the baby angles that obviously died for his magical existence.
So I guess you're supposed to feel your ovaries exploding at that point. But the descriptions used to describe his howtness? The characters The other major thing that bothered me were the characters.
First off, the novel flips back and forth from Eve to Solo's PoV and later Adam's. But the thing is, they all read like the same person.
And I was told that the novel was supposed to funny, but I think I may have chuckled a grand total of one time. Their personalities along with their interactions resembled robots or cardboard characters.
They we unrealistic like so: Eve - The girl loses a leg in the very beginning of the novel and she gives exactly two shits that it was at one point attached to her body.
The day after she is admitted in her mother's facility she doesn't even show concern over her injuries. She doesn't even find it weird that she is healing so fast nor does she even look at her leg.
Her explanation is that the doctors and nurses told her not to look at so it wouldn't upset her. She also thinks her lack of pain is due to the strong meds they have her on.
I'm sorry, but I don't buy any of that. She doesn't ask any questions about her recovery? She's not the least bit concerned? Those were simply convenient allowances to move the plot along.
Solo - I never liked this kid. From the moment he entered into the story thinking Eve was hot as they wheeled her and her detached leg from the hospital to when he thinks she is checking him out while she screamed in pain from her injuries, I thought he was a douche.
I know she's checking me out. Fair enough, because I'm checking her out. She's in pain. Bad pain. So it's possible she's not really checking me out.
I mean, who actually does that? I'm not sure how I was supposed to react to that. Was it meant to be funny?
Also, I could never understand his intense hatred for Terra Spiker. So she's mean But she's taken care of him, given him a job, etc. Yet here he is determined to bring her and her company down.
Oh, and did I mention the insta-love? After only a handful of interactions, Solo feels conflicted about taking his evidence of Terra's illegal activity to the Feds because he is in love with Eve.
I wasn't even aware that they were friends. Adam - "I'm so howt, but why is everyone staring at me? Someone hold me.
Terra Spiker - "I'm evil bitch incarnate and I know it. She also loves to slut-shame Eve's best friend, calling her a "drunken slut" any chance she gets.
Aislin - Eve's best friend who has only one purpose in the novel: To make Eve look good. By coming off as the self-destructive, drunken BFF who happens to also enjoy sexy times honestly, why is this portrayed as a bad thing?
This makes Eve look caring, kind, thoughtful and selfless. Instant innocence. Take out Aislin's character and Eve has no real depth to her.
She'd also be boring considering she'd have no reason to put her Under Dog cape on and save anyone in her spare time. Oh, and I can't forget the other scientists featured near the end who make perverted statements toward Eve.
She's no great beauty, but she's cute enough, and she's got a nice little body. Chen says. Did I mention these men are probably old enough to be her father and grandfather?
I get that they were supposed to be evil, but the layer of sexism wasn't necessary to drive that point home.
All it did was turn me completely off to the book. But I was, unfortunately, left disappointed, confused and underwhelmed.
You could probably read it in only a few short hours. However, I sadly can't recommend anyone wasting those precious hours reading 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 to which I ended up pleasantly surprised to have stumbled upon an intriguing sci-fi novel touching on genetics, and full of horrifying secrets.
While Goodreads says pages, this novel felt even shorter as the chapters are small and plentiful. The downfall of this is nothing is very profound or examined deeply; the characters and plot are not incredibly developed.
However, you can breeze through it in the blink of an eye which makes it a quick ride where you simply sit back and enjoy.
It's a guilty pleasure read. The fast pace keeps it entertaining and the twists holds your rapt attention. If you're wary of the sci-fi aspect, don't be.
It's in no way confusing or overwhelming. Evening Eve is put on a simulation project to create the perfect human. Even though we don't get into it in great depths, it's still fascinating with vivid imagery; the eyes, the hands, the face - floating in mid-air - it's all being created and perfected by our protagonist.
It's also incredible how you never really think of every little details that goes into individuality; every element counteracts another.
Do you make him so smart he won't easily fit in a social crowd, or do you make him average but then he'll need to try harder academically?
Do you make him muscled? If so 1 you can't give him too big an appetite or he'll simply get fat nor too small or he'll get scrawny , and 2 you also need to make him enjoy working out to keep said muscles.
This is just an example of specifics you have you consider. It's all very interesting and thought provoking. Plus, can any human really be perfect?
Endless details go into to create a human to our liking. With our current scientific advancements, picking and choosing characteristics in our future babies is not implausible; the believability of this whole plot makes it even more engrossing.
Solo is the main male character we get to know in this book. He's got quite the brisk personality and I kind of liked his and Evening's snippy exchanges.
Since he's been living inside the Biotech facility for years, he has thus acquired a lot of its secrets and inside knowledge. He's now discovering secrets; frighteningly disturbing secrets.
The plot twists are fun even though they aren't exactly surprising. There's also a hint of romance in the book, but it's not abundant by any means.
Aislin is another character we see a lot of - Evening's best friend. She's a fun addition, but I felt her storyline - drug dealing boyfriend constantly getting in trouble - felt irrelevant.
It doesn't really add anything to the story. With the book being so short, we don't get into this side story with any kind of depth, making it seem mostly random without any emotional attachment towards their situation.
Original and intriguing, Adam and Eve is a fantastically quick read that I think would suit those looking for a light and breezy sci fi novel.
I haven't found many true sci-fi without being a dystopian in YA, but I find them especially engaging and thought provoking, Eve and Adam is no exception.

It's the fate of all creators. They fall in love with their creations. 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 "I want you, Evening, to design the perfect boy.
When I first read the description for this book, I was struck with an immediate HAVE TO HAVE moment because it reminded me of that movie.
In case you haven't seen it, two nerdy high school boys create the perfect woman and get themselves into a bunch of ridiculous escapades because of it.
Pure classic gold, that movie was please hold one sec while I try to tame my inner Yoda in yet another review. Which means it was a given that I was going to be swept away by this story.
What made this book extra special to me is that I was able to find myself absorbed into this world within a matter of pages.
The techie side of the sci-fi equation might have been off for all I know. I'm sure someone's going to break down the science and technology parts and come up with holes somewhere.
Unless this author team really does happen to be just that good when it comes to multiple forms of medicine, science and gadgetry.
If this is the case, then I'm impressed! If it's not, I don't care! Because I'm definitely more of an artistic type of person than a technical type of person.
This book was fun! I liked the characters! Solo is one of my new favorite guys! I must be happy because I'm about to hit four sentences in a row with exclamation points!
Let's go for a record now! And here's six! Now number seven! Okay, I'm done with the extreme emoting. Adam may be the "perfect" man, but my heart belonged to Solo.
He was this incredible mix of shy and confident at the same time. How this is possible, I have no idea, but Solo is probably one of my new favorite characters of all time.
For this week, anyway. I have good shoulders, might as well reveal them. Eve cries out suddenly. So it's possible that she's not really checking me out.
There's a problem with that name, Eve. You say Eve and you think Garden of Eden, and then you think of Eve and Adam, naked but tastefully concealed by strategic shrubbery.
Except at this particular moment, my brain is not generating shrubbery. So, basically, that's despicable. She just got out of surgery.
So I add shrubbery. And yet the shrubbery doesn't stay put. So this book had great characters, a little bit of action, some techie stuff, a sweet romance budding, and even some humor.
All in all, this could be a great starter book for the sci-fi wary. We named him Golem. He died because of a slight flaw in his genetic makeup.

His name is Adam and he is being brought to life unbeknownst to Eve. The beginning was my favorite part of Eve and Adam. Surprisingly funny and dynamic, it raised my expectations to an unreasonable level and made what came later all the more disappointing.
Even without Maddox, Aislin was clearly supposed to be the cool and unruly best friend, but I found her too be too irresponsible and tiresome for my taste.
In short, Eve and Adam is a rather ambitious project, but one that lacks heart. View all 6 comments.

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 I just expected so much more from it, putting into consideration that the Animorphs series was my first foray into young adult as a teenager, and I really did love it.
Unfortunately, my expectations got the best of me, and I ended up being utterly disappointed by Eve and Adam , but even if I didn't have such high expectations prior to reading this, I just doubt that I'd had have a different opinion of this book.
In a present day San Francisco, Evening Spiker, sole daughter of the incredibly wealthy and powerful businesswoman and geneticist Terra Spiker, is suddenly in a car accident in which she loses a leg, and severely injures an arm.
Immediately rushed to the hospital, Evening is taken care of in no time, and she is healing at the same rate. As she is going through the quick healing process, Evening befriends a boy named Solo, who knows more about Evening, and Spiker Biotech, than he's willing to admit.
As well as the mysterious Solo, Evening's mother, in order to keep her occupied during her recovery, gives Evening the task of creating the perfect boy.
However, as this perfect boy, eventually named Adam, is brought to life, we have to suffer through three identical narratives secrets unknown to Evening are unraveled.
The premise for Eve and Adam is incredibly intriguing, and it's also very original. The book itself, however, is not.
What could have been an extremely entertaining book - one that makes you stop and say, "Wow. This book had a lot of thought put into it.
Love triangle? Stereotypical promiscuous best friend in which the main character lives her sexual life through?
The love interests saying their 'I love you''s after having a few conversations? With all of those tropes, and quite a few more, making their appearances in Eve and Adam , this book turns into a book with a whole lot of promise, to a book where all that promise is thrown in the garbage to make way for romance.
Yet another young adult trope to add to Eve and Adam 's lengthy list. From the start, we're introduced to Evening Spiker, or as she is more commonly referenced in the book, Eve.
What can I say about Eve Well, she is She's a character. Congratulations, Eve; that's all I can muster up about you. As well as Eve, we're introduced to Solo, who, when combined with Eve, is given about as much character development as a wooden plank.
Maybe the wooden plank was given a little more character development. Going in to this book, I was not aware that there would be multiple narratives, and, had I known, I probably would have steered clear of this book and run far, far away.
Few authors are actually able to pull off multiple narratives, and I hate to say that Applegate and Grant certainly aren't one of those few authors.
But, to add to that fact that both Eve and Solo's narratives were practically interchangeable, Applegate and Grant had to add a third narrative - one that is equally as interchangeable as the other two.
Note to authors: when it comes to multiple narratives? To add to the tropes that ruined a could-be good story, and the three identical narratives, it really doesn't help that the writing is painfully amateur, and that there are some extremely unnecessary subplots, that, in my opinion, were only really added to make the book longer come on, was the Aislin and Maddox sublot really necessary?
Ultimately, Eve and Adam is a disappointment in every sense of the word, and is only really getting two stars from me because it had its few, yet funny, one-liners, and it was a quick read, and never actually painful to get through, like that of many books I've given one star this year.
Don't take that as praise, though, because that's really the most amount of positives I can muster when it comes to this book. The author himself Michael Grant said in a comment, "This is Katherine and me having fun, not trying to be heavy or deep.
And, to conclude Grant's comment, and my review, this is what was said, "EVE AND ADAM is just light, sexy, silly fun.
