Review: Eve & Adam by Michael Grant
Warnings: Some mature themes
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?
This book was great. It follows the two voices of Evening and Solo, two unlikely partners who end up discovering more about their reality than they ever thought possible.
I really liked this book because it blended together contemporary and sci-fi in a really nice way. And although the plot is interesting enough, it’s the characters that truly make this book what it is. Eve and Solo are witty, funny, and enjoyable. Their voices are friendly and snarky in a really good way—the kind of way that just keeps you wanting to read more about them. This book never reached a slow point, at least not for me, as I read it in one sitting (it’s only 290 pages, after all).
If you’re looking for a quick, fast-paced read, I would totally recommend this.
I gave this book 4/5 stars on goodreads.
