Book Description

Gattaca meets Dark Angel from international best-selling authors Katherine Applegate and Michael Grant, author of GONE. A mystery-thriller that bursts out of the world of genetic science and into the lives of teens.



Love has never had much of a place in the life of Evening Spiker. But being the daughter of a billionaire genetic scientist has other perks. Like a private hospital where you can recover from near-fatal road accidents. And a hot surfer boy to push your wheelchair. While Eve is healing, her mother sets her an unexpected challenge: to use a cutting-edge virtual reality system to design the perfect boy; everything from the colour of his eyes to the level of his IQ. It’s the chance of a lifetime. The chance to play God . . . or is it more than just playing?



An exceptional page-turner from the creator of the GONE series. Escapism doesn’t get more thrilling than this book for teens.



Praise for the GONE series by Michael Grant:



“Exciting, high-tension story told in a driving, torrential narrative . . . This is great fiction. I love these books” – Stephen King.

Product details


More About the Author

Michael Grant was born in Los Angeles but that's not important because he was soon out of there. His father was a military man, frequently transferred, so Michael was the "new kid" in school every year but one. He left school early and embraced the rootless lifestyle as his own. He's lived in more flats and houses than he can recall, all across the US and in France and Italy as well. He's back in southern California as of this writing but with no plans to stay put.

Michael met his wife, Katherine (K.A.) Applegate, 30 years ago, in Austin, Texas. He saw her through her apartment window and immediately knocked on her door. They've been together since that first meeting.

Michael Grant did not set out to be a writer. He's worked as a stock clerk, a house painter, an apartment manager, busboy, waiter, restaurant manager, janitor, editorial cartoonist, political media consultant, documentary producer, and no doubt some other jobs he's managed to forget. After ten years working odd jobs together, Katherine informed Michael that it was time for them both to grow up, get careers, possibly have children. Once he was revived, Michael agreed.

Katherine and Michael began writing in 1989, often as a team, and wrote 150 books, including the ANIMORPHS series.
They have two disobedient children, Jake, 11, and Julia, 9, an overweight Labrador Retriever named Goofy, a cat named Lightning and a pug named Pugs who is Michael's personal nemesis.

What would you do if you could, literally, design the 'perfect' guy; from his looks to his personality, everything? This alone drew me to this book. It is different, it is original. I had to see what is was all about.

This book gives a different perspective to the `perfect guy'. How many people get to simulate the perfect guy into the level of depth as genetics? But maybe there is no such thing. There will always be a fault into the guy you end up spending the rest of your life with. It is dealing with that fault that is the interesting parts of any relationship. A man without fault, the perfect guy, may not be so interesting. So what is perfect? When Eve is designing Adam, it really gets you thinking about all the different aspects that make us human; from our physical traits to all the nitty gritty details of our personalities.

I am a nerd. I know I am a nerd. I can happily admit I am one. Two interests in my life are science, specifically biology, and latest technology (although not at as much detail). Eve and Adam sort of tickled my fancy in each. Eve is playing around with genetics but you really do not need to know much about the topic to understand this book. Genes code for our individual traits. That's all you really need to know. I am guessing this is set in the near future. Technology is used a lot more in this book than most YA novels I have read. Many characters in YA still seem to use phones for just calls and texts which are fair enough. Here we have characters using apps. iPads are commonly used. Electric cars are also getting the go ahead. It did give a slight sci-fi edge to it but still thoroughly believable. I enjoyed this side of the world. iPads as medical charts? It could happen.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not as gripping as the 'Gone' series. 6 April 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Although I enjoyed this book, the overall premise that a young girl could build a viable person so quickly by picking eye colour, hair colour etc from a computer programme was too presposterous to sustain credibility. The underlying ideas of the story needed more development although the main characters were well drawn and engaging. In many ways this seems like a rushed novel which may be a result of the collaboration in writing. Still a good read but not one of Michael Grant's best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exciting, Humorous & Just Damn Good! 17 Jun. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Michael Grant and Katherine Applegate, you’ve done it again! Eve and Adam is an action-packed, futuristic sci-fi novel, filled with mystery, romance and betrayal. And it was funny!

Eve and Adam was brilliant! I had a great time reading it. I really enjoyed it. And that’s what a book is supposed to do, right? Books are written for enjoyment and pleasure, that’s their job. And Eve and Adam definitely did the job right.

There are so many great things about Eve and Adam. Where do I start? I wasn’t very intrigued at the beginning, the very beginning. I thought this was going to be a predictable, boring story. Well, I was wrong. The story kept surprising me and I was at the edge of my seat the whole time. The authors really know how to keep up the suspense. Their are so many different aspects to Eve and Adam’s story line. It was mysterious, it was thrilling, it was romantic, it was hilarious! There are so many different parts of the story that you can enjoy and love. That’s why Eve and Adam is a book for all.

“I want you, Evening, to design the perfect boy,”

I really liked the characters in the book. They are all, very much, individuals. We have Evening, the sort of insecure, but strong-willed girl. Aislin, the witty one, who settles for a drug-addicted boyfriend. She’s one of my favourite characters, I must say. Solo, well I don’t really know how to describe him. He is kind on the inside, and he loves Evening. We also have Terra Spiker, Evening’s mother. She is hilarious! What a strong personality. She’s scary, but I just loved her! And finally, we have Adam, Evening’s perfect creation.

The characters were very relatable, and easy to understand. Their personalities were very unique and they were all so different to each other.

Micheal Grant and Katherine Applegate are not two authors who beat around the bush; instead they threw me straight into the deep end, by starting this amazing book with the opening scene of the day Evening (also know as E.V. or Eve) has her accident. The very same that would almost entirely detach a leg, mangle her arm and change her life forever.
You're probably thinking that her life will never be same because she's been in an accident, but no. The accident leads her to the facility where she will get the best possible care, slowly recover and where Eve's mother asks her, as a distraction from the lengthy healing process, to design the perfect boy for Project 88175, known amongst the Big Brain scientists of Spiker & Plisseken as Project Adam.
Now let me tell you, having reached this point early on in the book, not even the gorgeous looking guy in the sun lounger next to me could deter my gaze from my kindle. I was gone hook, line and sinker.

In this absolutely great novel we meet a variety of interesting characters with the main two being Eve and Solo, and it is from alternatively both points of view that this story is told.

Solo was a very interesting character and, as alone as his name would suggest, was brought up essentially by the scientists around him and the building that contains him, the very same he secretly plots and schemes to bring down. Cleverer than he lets on, with a perfected art of shielding his thoughts from being read as expressions on his face, Solo was an intriguing character with a very different take on life considering his upbringing and with a cold detached view of the world that surrounds him and the people in it.
But then again how would you feel brought up almost like a guest hamster in a lab rat maze?
