ARC BOOK REVIEWRelease Date 31 5 18This really appealed to me the idea of a dystopian landscape where female births have decimated to the point where the last XX Birth in fifty years is the honour of one young girl aptly name Eve.Unsurprisingly she is one hot commodity kept segregated from the common masses in the tower with the Mothers Aged woman who have made it there lives vocation to raise her.Eve is raised with the ideals that she alone is the last hope for humanity a heavy responsibility for any young girl.Her only companion aside from the mothers is Holly a kind of ready made best friend she s a sort of hologram run by three drivers one of whom is Bram.Bram and Eve, though they have never touched in person have sort of grown to adulthood side by side.Despite only interacting through Holly these two have learned to recognise each other.And it s not long before the deep feelings these two inspire in each other spill over into real time.So I did find this slightly disappointing sigh.Not much really happens in the first two thirds of this story, it s all Eve meeting the potentials and a whole lot of inner turmoil from both Bram and Eve and I did find things t I wanted to like this book because I think Tom and Gi are fantastic people and I expected to like it because Gi is a talented adult writer However, I could not click with this book.The first half was okay From the first page, I was nervous it wasn t quite my taste The writing is very simplistic and abrupt but in a way that doesn t engage me The story is very much told to you so there s not a lot of clues you need to pay attention to and sadly, that left me bored At this point, though, it was a The second half changed things The story became fast paced but I felt unmoved by everything that was going on I didn t care about any of the side characters like Frost and I was waiting for Eve to become the badass I wanted her to be, but she never did The characters were stereotypical, the writing was boring and I received an ARC through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.There are number of things in Eve of Man that left me feeling deeply uncomfortable, and that really took away any enjoyment I might have gotten from the story otherwise Before I get into why I disliked this book, first I want to acknowledge that there are fun sci fi concepts in here that I found imaginative and novel, and I especially liked how the futuristic technology is actually central to the plot There is also a believable romance between the two main characters This really matters because their relationship is the catalyst for change in this story, and therefore it has the power to make or break the book It made me happy that their romance was rooted in friendship and wasn t yet another case of insta love.I wasn t a huge fan of the writing style at first because all the sentence fragments irked the pedant in me The exposition is also pretty clumsy, and there are quite a few abrupt info dumps However, the flow of the narrative improves once the story really gets going, and in the end I didn t really mind it.What I did really mind, however, was the very black and white way the book depicts gender and sexuality On several occasions it suggests that men and women are somehow fundamentally different in their behaviour, and this is presented as something natural and innate I found this biological determinism frustratingly outdated and stifling The concept I guess reality is just the world with which we are presented I AM OBSESSED A million stars Eve of Man is going to be one of my highlights of 2018 I started it yesterday and I only put it down because I was half asleep The synopsis already sounded very engaging to me, I love books about future worlds and this one I liked very much.I received an ARC via netgalley for an honest review and I m so happy and thankful that I got the chance to read it It ll be published on May 31, 2018 From the synopsis we know that Eve, the first girl born in fifty years, has been kept away from the opposite sex all her life When three potential man have been selected for her, nothing goes as it should And then she meets Bram If you want to get blind into the book, stop reading her Well not exactly Bram, actually she meets Holly You ll probably be confused now, what nonsens is this girl talking about Let me explain The best way to create a connection to Eve and know her thoughts, would be If she had a friend But how can you get a friend for a girl who s the last rescue for the human world A girl who lives in a Dom at the highest point of a tower, so she ll be kept safe I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.Bold, imaginative and cinematic but a few question marks over the credibility of the plot.Yes, it s a dystopian book And let s face it, there are rather a few of them around at the moment However, this definitely stood out from the crowd, thanks to its inventive approach and strong, confident writing Eve is the last young female on earth As this statement implies, the human race has pretty much wrecked itself, and for some reason, women stopped producing female babies a while back This left humanity in a dire situation, with only one woman to hopefully produce women As such, Eve is hidden away from the world in a strange high tower building called The Dome She s protected, yet isolated, with only a hologram of Holly to act as her friend Ironically, Holly is activated by a male called Bram Even ironically, they fall in love and that s when things start getting very interesting Without giving too much away, Bram s on a mission to rescue Eve from the cruel situation she s in but make no mistake, the people of the Dome aren t going to make it easy for him, or the other freevers What I really liked about THAT ENDING THOUGH I NEED MORE 3.5 to 4 The blurb intrigued me and my first thought was the incredible Children of Men The difference is in Children of Men no children had been born for eighteen years Whereas in Eve of Man it s been 50 years since the last baby girl was born.Without females the human race was facing extinction and by the time Eve was born the earth was a mess Men living without hope of a future have abused the world beyond imagination Overconsumption of fossil fuels accelerated global warming Then came the miracle everyone had hoped and prayed for Eve A special dome is created for her so she can live in a perfect world Safe and secure.She even has a best friend Holly She knows Holly isn t real because she s the same age and Eve s the first female born in 50 years But it s nice to have a friend and confidant So Eve lives safe and secure in her perfect world Her only job is to give birth to girls when the time comes To save the human race.I m not sure how sound it is having just one girl to continue the human race but it s all they ve got So putting thoughts of interbreeding aside.Bram has known Eve nearly all her life and while they ve never actually met he s one of the pilots who operates Holly He knows her better than
