Eve & Adam

Eve & Adam

by Michael Grant and Katherine Applegate

And girl created boy...

In the beginning, the 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?

 Now doesn't that just sound charming? It isn't. It really, really isn't. The synopsis focuses on what ends up to really be one of the smallest parts of the entire plot and story line. The story was just as disappointing. While the story line might have been original but it was horribly executed. The writing was bland and painfully non-descriptive. The most descriptive phrase was, "unsexy panties." You could do so much with that! But did they? Nooooooo! The plot was ok but really basic without to many exciting twists, turns, ect. The characters didn't develop and weren't very well described or fleshed out. There was nothing about them that made readers connect with them or fall in love with them. The romance was bland, shallow and unrealistic.
Over all it was nothing but ok. I give it 2 out of 5 stars.
