Eve and Adam - A Review

Eve & Adam - Michael Grant and Katherine Applegate ( publisher)


Overview:

In the beginning, there was an apple –
And then there was a car crash, a horrible injury, and a hospital. But before Evening Spiker's head clears a strange boy named Solo is rushing her to her mother’s research facility. There, under the best care available, Eve is left alone to heal.
Just when Eve thinks she will die – not from her injuries, but from boredom—her mother gives her a special project: Create the perfect boy.
Using an amazingly detailed simulation, Eve starts building a boy from the ground up. Eve is creating Adam. And he will be just perfect . . . won’t he?

My Thoughts:
This will be a short but sweet review. I enjoyed this book. It was easy to get into and the story was pleasant and enjoyable. The premise kind of creeped me out. The thought of genetically made humans doesn't seem so far out of reach in modern times but the whole idea creeps me out. 
Bottom line, if you are looking for a quick, easy read with a story line that doesn't require you to think long and hard about it, this is the book for you.

Yeah, I wish this book had had a bit more to it but it was fun enough to read.

I'm sort of creeped out with this premise.
