I've read a ton of negative reviews for this book, but I don't think it was that bad. I do agree with those who say that they disliked Eve - she was rather annoying caused more problems than anything. There were other characters I couldn't stand as well. The plot has been rather overused as well, but I feel as if Carey worked with it well. The book seemed rather rushed, but it held my attention nonetheless. I wanted to know what would come next, and I can't wait to read the next book. ( )

I went into this expecting mediocrity, but I also like my post-apocalyptic dystopias to have some logic. Stupid characters, instant teen love, shaky world-building, no sense of realism, and characters' ability to overcome a lifetime of indoctrination with one conversation. No thanks.

After realizing that I somehow managed never to actually write a review for Eve, I rushed to borrow a copy from the library. Having the sequel, Once, in front of me reminded me that I had a blurry remembrance of events past. I think it's important to let you know that, as a re-read, I had certain biases already. Still, I made sure to clear my mind and just sit down to enjoy a good story. It was time to get lost in a book.

My first impression of the book was, once again, really great. I found myself trapped inside Eve's world. A world of oppression. A stifling world, that is built on a basis of lies and deceit. Even before I reached the climax that I knew was coming, I had already fallen for the world that Anna Carey built for her readers. It's hard not to forgive Eve for the way she acts when you see how she was raised. Eve's society brainwashes women into mindless drones. It's terrifying and fascinating all at the same time.

That being said, I was able to feel for Eve a lot more this read through. It's true that she can be selfish, quite often in fact. Remembering her background helped me step past that and enjoy the rest of the story. It's Caleb who really made me fall in love though. Here is a boy that, despite everything else in his world, wants to help a stranger. I'll admit I swooned a bit. After all, who wouldn't fall in love with a guy who is willing to put his life on the line for you? His story, and the stories of the boys he protects, are what really kept me reading on.

The ending broke my heart in two, even though I knew it was coming. If you haven't had a chance to read Eve yet, you should know that there is a heart wrenching cliffhanger. It will make you come back. I promise. So, at the end of the day I actually liked Eve a lot more this time around! Enough to warrant it a whole extra star. Fans of dystopian fiction will fall in love with Anna Carey's new world, and the heart of the story will keep you coming back for more. ( )

This review is posted on Reading with AngelaRenea!

I have been eyeing this book up in Books-A-Million for over a year now, and I finally read it! I have to say it was not what I expected, but it was still really good.

This book is a dystopian young adult book with a love story incorporated into it, so while this is a very unique dystopian young adult book with a love story, it is still a snowflake in a blizzard, which unfortunately means, that not a whole lot of this book really stuck with me. That being said, I will be continuing this book because I think there is a lot of potential in this series.

This book follows Eve, a young girl who escapes from her 'school' where she learns they are preparing girls to be baby machines, and teaching them to fear and hate men. I think that that is a really interesting idea, that has some really great ties to today's society.

I really enjoyed the fact that Eve was not a special little flower who everyone loves and dotes on at all times, but is also not a hard core Katness Everdeen type character who kicks some butt, and scares everyone, while being emotionally unavailable. I found her very realistic, and it actually really broke the mold in that respect.

Ultimately, however, it did read like any number of first books in post apocalyptic dystopian worlds. Luckily the second books are always the best! ( )

Fairly good.

Plot: 3.5/5
The plot was interesting enough. In a post apocalyptic world, procreation is fairly important factor, or so I've always believed. But of course, I imagined the procreation would be voluntary, but, whatever your cup of tea.

Characters: 4/5
Eve: I don't know. She was Alright. At times, I got really frustrated with her. For the first half of the book, though, i could understand her decisions. But then when she went did that message thing, it was just so... frustrating. Erg.
Caleb: I don't know about him either. He's definitely not my favorite book boy, and I won't be putting him on my 'My Fictional Boyfriends' list, but there have been worse book boys. Give two secs and I'll think of a couple. I just really didn't feel one way or the other about him.
Arden: Ok, in all honestly, I liked her better than the main character. Not that that's atypical of me, but... I really liked Arden.
Silas: So cute!
Lief: Okay, back in the day where the ONLY fictional character named Lief was from Deltora Quest, the name was cool. Then I read the Poison Study series, where the MC has a brother named Lief. I read a blog post Existence by Abbi Glines, and apparently that book has a Lief too. And now HERE? I'm sorry, but this is just getting ridiculous.
Anyway, for the actual character breakdown: I really want to learn more about this character. Out of all the characters we met in this book, Lief seemed to have the most interesting past. He did make a couple choices and actions within the book that I don't quite approve, but I'd like to know the emotions he was feeling behind those decisions.

Ze Romance: 3/5
Okay, so, the MC, Eve, was taught that Men and Boys are Evil and Dangerous, and only want women for their bodies. predictably, she falls in love with PRACTICALLY THE FIRST BOY SHE EVER SEES. What does this tell you about her? Don't get me wrong, it was enjoyable and cute, just slightly hypocritical.

10.5/15
The long and straight of it: I enjoyed this book, but it didn't really phase me. I will read the rest of the series though, and have books two and three on hold at the library. ( )
