The writing is great, the characters are well written, the story is unique.

Eve left me saying, "Meh," more than I said, "Wow," which is never something you want to happen when you pick up an anticipated book.
Amazon Customer
I think that the main barrier to me loving this book was the fact that I didn't really like Eve.

It is the day before graduation and Eve is excited to walk into the next phase of her life. She is to be the valedictorian and has just been awarded an award for the highest achievement. She looks forward to her future, one where she will study hard to become and artist and eventually go off to practice her craft in the city. But as she sits enjoying the pre-graduation ceremonies, she sees a trouble making classmate, Arden, slip away from the celebration. On impulse, she decides to follow her and this decision will prove to be life changing. Eve discovers that she and the rest of her graduation class are destined for the birthing house as reproduction units, producing children for as long as they are productive. That night, Eve sneaks across the river and to her horror discovers that Arden was telling the truth. Eve escapes, leaving behind the only home she has known since she was five.

Eve journeys across a ruined America trying to find an enclave she has been told will help her and shelter her from her newly discovered fate. But her education at the school has ill equipped her for life beyond its walls. When her food supply runs out, she finds herself starving and desperate. By some twist of fate, she runs into Arden and after pleading not to be discarded, they become traveling companions.

I have so many mixed feelings on this book. As I got to the half way mark, I couldn't put my finger on what it was about the book that did not quite click. Up to that point, Eve was okay as a heroine, not particularly compelling but not annoying either. But something still nagged at me and as I read on I began to understand what some of what it was. For one thing, I found her willingness to escape, to run from into the wild a bit unbelievable.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
My first instinct upon reading the description of this novel was to take a pass. But there was something so appealing in its being called a cross between The Handmaid's Tale (a book I've long wanted but have yet to read) and The Hunger Games (a series I adore) that made me decide to go ahead and give it a try. Would that I had listened to my instincts. And, just for the record, this book is *nothing* like The Hunger Games. I think that comparison was used solely in an attempt to cash in on the (rightfully earned) popularity of that series. Fair warning: the spoilers in this review will be plentiful.

First up, the dystopia. I thought Carey's concept was pretty awesome and showed a lot of promise. The problem was all in the execution. There is no logic whatsoever in the societal structure of Eve's "New America". None. Very early in the novel, the reader is told that something like 98% of the population of the United States was wiped out in a plague. I'm not sure how many that leaves behind, but it sounds like it could only be a viable population by the slimmest of margins. Because of this, Eve and the girls like her are turned into baby incubators at the age of eighteen, strapped down to tables and kept constantly pregnant. When Eve peers into the breeding grounds, she notices some women with bloodied gauze around their middles. My first thought was, "Um, shouldn't they take better care of those women to ensure they don't get infections or suffer from ruptured uteruses. Wouldn't the objective be to keep them healthy so that they can keep cranking out the babies?" Apparently, no. I won't even get into the negative effects of stress on pregnant women, and how the conditions in which these women are kept make absolutely no sense if a healthy baby is the King's objective.

Originally posted on: [...]

Have you ever read a book and then had to ask yourself why you put yourself through it? Well, that was me with "Eve." The only saving grace with this book is that it is an extremely easy read. I got through it in a few hours. Just when I considered giving up, I realized I only had a few pages left, so figured I might as well finish it. Besides, I wanted to see how the train wreck would end.

Eve is at the top of her class in her school, the very best in her world of female orphans. She excelled in her classes including `Dangers of Boys and Men.' She is ready to lead her class of fellow seniors across the bridge to their new life and the magical city of sand. The night before her graduation, she stumbles across a room where she sees past graduates strapped to beds and pregnant. She realizes that in this new dystopian future, healthy females are used as broodmares. Eve then stumbles upon a teacher who helps her escape. This book is made up of a series of scenarios where Eve stumbles upon someone who risks their necks to save her. Why? I am not sure, because Eve is probably the most selfish, useless, mindless, pathetic character I have ever read. Including Bella Swan, at least Bella cares about the people around her. She suffers from guilt when someone risks their life to protect her. Also, the people who risk their lives for Bella are her friends, family and the two boys who love her. WHY, people risk their life for Eve, I do not know. As I write this, I realize that I am actually writing positive things about Bella Swan...that tells you my true feelings for Eve.

My main problem with this book is that the government's actions make no sense.
