Until she meets Bram.
Eve wants control over her life. She wants freedom.
But how do you choose between love and the future of the human race?”
Eve of Man was a refreshing read, I was apprehensive about how Giovanna and Tom Fletcher would come together to write a dystopian novel as they have such different writing styles. However it was great, there were a few cliches as there normally would be in a dystopian.
Although I was pleasantly surprised by the plot and it was such an easy audible book. I loved the narration and was engrossed in the plot and writing. I read this book within 3 days while I was travelling and I cannot wait for the second one.
My initial thoughts were apprehension. I really wanted this book to be good and the physical copy of the book looked stunning! once I started listening to the book I was intrigued and I think it helped that there were different narrators for the different perspectives.
While reading the book I was engrossed in the story and I wanted to find out how this whole thing would unfold. I knew it was the typical trope of a dystopian world of the capitalist society holding power over the people down below and obviously, there would be secrets to unfold. However, I think that they were unveiled at the right times. Nothing felt overly rushed in this book and the right set up of characters were used.
The conclusion is that I gave this book four out of five stars because I was totally encapsulated in the world and narration. However, it was not a life-changing or thought-provoking novel like a five-star book would be. It was a great YA dystopian and I hope to carry on the series.
