Eve Review

The year is 2032, sixteen years after a deadly virus—and the vaccine intended to protect against it—wiped out most of the earth’s population. The night before eighteen-year-old Eve’s graduation from her all-girls school she discovers what really happens to new graduates, and the horrifying fate that awaits her. Fleeing the only home she’s ever known, Eve sets off on a long, treacherous journey, searching for a place she can survive. Along the way she encounters Caleb, a rough, rebellious boy living in the wild. Separated from men her whole life, Eve has been taught to fear them, but Caleb slowly wins her trust...and her heart. He promises to protect her, but when soldiers begin hunting them, Eve must choose between true love and her life.

Review (ARC):  
I thought this was an exceptionally dark and fast-paced dystopian novel. I was amazed at how quickly Eve developed from a weak character into a relatively strong one. I think that the way men were portrayed in this book was interesting. I especially enjoyed Eve's relationship with Caleb even though I felt she was able to overcome years of brainwashing when it came to him very quickly. One thing I couldn't understand was the fact that the soldiers kept hunting Eve after she escaped even knowing that she couldn't possibly be the same docile female she once was. Other than that I enjoyed reading this novel and seeing how Eve coped with a new world outside the school she was raised in. I am definitely looking forward to the next book in the series. Recommended to anyone who likes a good dystopian novel.
