Eve and Adam

Eve and AdamGoodreads Synopsis:    Sixteen-year-old Evening Spiker lives an affluent life in San Francisco with her mother, EmmaRose, a successful geneticist and owner of Spiker Biotech. Sure, Evening misses her father who died mysteriously, but she’s never really questioned it. Much like how she’s never stopped to think how off it is that she’s never been sick. That is, until she’s struck by a car and is exposed to extensive injuries. Injuries that seem to be healing faster than physically possible. 

While recuperating in Spiker Biotech’s lush facilities, she meets Solo Plissken, a very attractive, if off-putting boy her age who spent his life at Spiker Biotech. Like Evening, he’s never questioned anything... until now. Solo drops hints to Evening that something isn’t right, and Emma-Rose may be behind it. Evening puts this out of her mind and begins her summer internship project: To simulate the creation of the perfect boy. With the help of Solo, Evening uncovers secrets so big they could change the world completely.

My Thoughts:

-    Most of the book is pretty flat and a bit cliche.  I wasn't too impressed.

-    The whole Terra/Terror thing is SO true!!  My little sister had a friend named Tara, and I called her Terror all the time.  Because she was a complete Terror!

-    The viewpoint of the book changes between Evening, Solo, and Adam comes in later.  I really didn't think it needed to change point of views.  Some of the Solo stuff was important I suppose.

-    Solo's name might be awesome cause it reminds me of Han Solo, but he is kind of a loser.  He likes to get hit in the head, and he was vein enough to think that a girl was checking him out after she was in an accident and got her leg ripped off.  He is also a bit dirty in the head.

-    What may be a perfect man to Eve, is NOT going to be the perfect man to everyone and their dog! 

-    I really didn't like Aislin.  I don't think she was a very good friend, and she is WAY messed up.  Eve kept having to help Aislin with everything, and I didn't really see what Aislin brought to their friendship. 

-    A lot of the characters in this book didn't have a lot of dimensions to them.  They were pretty flat.

-    The plot was a bit predictable.  There wasn't a ton going on.  

-    I don't think I'll finish the series.  There wasn't really a cliffhanger, and I not intrigued enough to continue.


  1. I totally know which Tara you are talking about, and she was a terror!

  2. Bummer, I was hoping that this would be a good read. Alas, if it's not unique and has underdeveloped characters I might pass. Thanks for the review
