And girl created boy...

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?

WOW. OKAY. MINDBLOWN. I have absolutely no idea how I’m going to write this review, so I’m just going to be spitting out random thoughts about this book, because, hey, I HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO REVIEW THIS.

Firstly, you should probably know that I love stories about creating people, humans. Clones. Yes, I’m weird like that, but don’t worry though, I’ll never do such an inhumane thing like that HAHA. I just find them really fascinating. I mean, I don’t like playing God, but I just find it fascinating how there’s so much more to humans than just bones and muscles. I mean, there are feelings and characteristics and genes and whatnot. OKAY, ENOUGH BIOLOGY LESSON.

MY THOUGHTS:

  • WOW. The female narrator is really good. What’s her name again? Jenna Lamia. I really love her voice. She has a really great voice. And her imitation of Eve’s mother? PURRRFECT.
  • Okay I definitely did not expect Solo to sound like that. AT ALL. He doesn’t seem like the deep, gruffy type. It made him sound so much older than he actually is, but it’s alright, I guess. I still like it.
  • Eve is sassy as hell, I swear. She definitely gets that genes from her mother.

“Every single person I’ve seen in the past few days asks me about the Leg.
How is it?
How’s the Leg?
The Leg is attached. Thanks for asking. There’s The Leg right there. It’s on display, always outside of the sheets and blanket, although the whole thing is still so wrapped up it looks like I borrowed The Leg from some ancient Egyptian mummy.
How’s The Leg?
It seems a bit mummyish, thanks.”

  • Eve’s mother sounds so…. PERFECT AND COLD AND JUST COOL AS HELL, BUT SCARY TOO. SCARY IS ACTUALLY AN UNDERSTATEMENT.
  • Aislin is….. HAHAHA I LIKE HER. Aislin is wild, hyper, and everything that offsets Eve. Now I get why they’re best friends.
  • I definitely did not realize how much DETAILS there are into creating a person. Like the color of their eyes, whether they should have courage, too smart? Or lesser smart? Or maybe toner legs? GOD. LEGIT PLAYING GOD.
  • Oh my, she’s too scared to create his…. AHEM.
  • Solo is like a grumpy old man. He has this whole bunch of hatred wound up so tightly inside of him, that I fear he might just explode one day and kill everybody within sight.
  • Damn. Now I feel bad for Eve. She has to choose between what is right, and what she THINKS is right. Also, nobody should have to make this decision. AT ALL.
  • For a moment there though, I actually hated Eve. She suddenly turned into this bitchy version of herself. And that’s quite sad because I really do like her. But she’s so high and fucking mighty now, I want to slap her upside down.
  • ADAAAAM. GOODNESS GRACIOUS. ADAAAM.
  • NOPE. I WILL NOT ALLOW THIS SHIP TO SAIL. NOOOOOPE.

  • HEY WILL SOMEBODY PLEASE HELP SOLO? PLEASE? SOMEBODY?
  • That plot twist made me so damn happy. I am so glad that plot twist existed, because this way, everybody has a chance at happy endings. And I love happy endings.
  • Eve’s mother, Terra Spiker, is one hell of an amazing woman. She is really amazing. I want her to be my mother. I really like her. A WHOLE LOT.

I don’t know if that was supposed to be a review. BUT I hope that I managed to convince you to read the book. Or listen to the audio book, because either way, this book is AMAAAZING. And I couldn’t be more happier with it. It’s just really great AH. I LOOOOOVE THIS BOOK.
