How do I even begin to describe this book?
It had everything in it I love. Romance, action, suspense and more!
Without giving too much away I will give you a little outline of what it’s about.
Eve of Man is based in the future. No girls have been born for 50 years. Until Eve. Eve is then kept away from the real world until she is ready to start having children herself. She then meets Bram.
Bram lives and works in the tower. He has been there pretty much his whole life and has never really questioned anything. He comes to a few realisations and makes some life-changing decisions.
The first book in a planned trilogy, Eve of Man captured my interest and my heart.
I think that’s all I can really say without giving away spoilers of the whole book haha.
I love Tom and Giovanna. The kids love listening to Tom’s books and I love Giovanna’s, so I knew I had to read this book as soon as they announced it was happening. They did not disappoint!
I felt very connected to the characters and could get a sense of how they were feeling. They are so well written, you can’t help but fall in love with them. I had sympathy for what they were going through and, very nearly, cried at a couple of points in the story. There are a couple of characters you really come to dislike and, again, that’s due to the brilliant way they are written.
The storyline was different to anything I had ever heard of before. It intrigued me and drew me in. I wanted to, and still want to, know more about this futuristic world. I’m hoping the next book in the planned trilogy, dives more into how it came to be that way.
The chapters jump from Eve’s perspective to Bram’s and I thought that was a great touch. It meant you could really get a feel for what both characters were experiencing and going through.
I must admit, I struggled to understand some of the tech terms used, but that just gives me a reason to read it again haha. I’m also not that into my tech, so, probably wouldn’t understand the basic terms. Don’t let that put you off though. The book is still absolutely amazing and a new favourite of mine.
I thoroughly recommend this book and, honestly, don’t think I can wait for the next one! I may be rereading this one a few times and will be passing it along to friends and family to read too.
I’m still new to this book reviewing thing, so please excuse me if it’s a bit rambly. I’m hoping I will get better at them as I do more.
