Eve and Adam

Definitely better than I was expecting it to be. Presenting Eve and Adam by Michael Grant and Katherine Applegate.

Here is the summary of the book:

And girl created boy… 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?

Creation is one of the basic necessities of life. Evolution makes much more sense after creation. We are all creations of God and science as we all know is always at a tug-of-war wit religion. But is it possible for a man to create another man? I say that it is not impossible. Science has gone far enough to create androids and marionettes.....a little more tweaks and you can have the perfect human being. Ethics of creation still remain...

And this is what Eve and Adam is all about. Evening Spiker was in a big accident at her school. So during her recovery procedure her mother tells her to design the perfect human to pass her time. But is it just a virtual program to get Eve interested in genetics or is her mother onto something because her mother is Tara Spiker, the head b**** of Spiker Pharmaceutical, and she does not do things lightly at all. Creating the perfect Adam does have repercussions though.....

What i loved about Eve and Adam is the fact that they didn't elaborate on the original tale but gave it a new premise. Their is actually another guy for Eve, Solo. Solo also works at the Spiker Biopharm and God is he hot. Adam does not even feature until the almost middle of the book. But thats alright because the core of the story is the whole process of Eve creating Adam, which all I tell is simply marvelous. The details put in through this whole ordeal makes it real enough for the readers to feel present thoughout.

I last ---- I absolutely loved the writing, the sci-fi elements and the turn-of-the-tables point towards the end but most of all loved Eve and Solo together, they were both so clueless that it was endearing to watch them squander around each other. And the fact that even perfect Adam has a major flaw felt so write... Kudos to the authors for creating such a complex yet simple tale..... simply amazing.

"Creation be it human or God, there will always be flaws. Eve and Adam's tale is the perfect example of this"
