Review: Eve


Life in the wild or becoming a human breeding machine? Sounds like a women's liberation right. Thankfully, Eve made the right choice by running away. Women aren't objects, although I admit it was puzzling as to why they were taught how to read and write only to be enslaved afterwards. 

Anna Carey added several characters to keep us entertained throughout the novel. First Eve is forced to escape with her school nemesis, Arden. A girl who would beat you up rather than give you a hand. And then, of course, Caleb. A love interest that is both protective and sweet. Eve's school lessons gave her a charming "Wendy from Peter Pan likeness" when she reached the boys camp and learned to survive. 

Enough action scenes to anticipate a great sequel.

  1. I didn't realize it was a dystopian from the cover, it looks very contemporary. Anyways, I've seen this book around but I didn't really look into it and I have to say that the premises sounds very interesting. Plus, I love that Eve ran away, I wouldn't want to be a part of some baby-making machine either. Lovely review, Natali :)
