now I m looking forward to the next bookSo why not 5Apart from the slow part in the middle it just never seemed to reach its full potential I m sure why or xactly what was missing for me but it didn t fully work But there was Anatomisk bildordbok enough here to make me want to continue on Prologue On the first day no one really noticed Perhaps there was a chuckle among the midwives at the sight of

didn t want to strip people of their human rights That was what they said InitiallyThe first part of the prologue I ve copied is from the arc and could change with publicationI voluntarily read a review copy kindly provided by NetGalley and Penguin UK ARC BOOK REVIEWRelease Date 31518This really appealed to me the idea of a dystopian landscape where female births have decimated to the point wher I received an ARC through NetGalley inxchange for an honest reviewThere are number of things in Eve of Man that left me feeling deeply uncomfortable and that really took away any In Over Her Head Chloe Babineaux Private Investigator enjoyment I might have gotten from the story otherwise Before I get into why I disliked this book first I want to acknowledge that there are fun sci fi concepts in here that I found imaginative and novel and Ispecially liked how the futuristic technology is actually central to the plot There is also a believable romance between the two main characters This really matters because Their Relationship Is The relationship is the catalyst change in this story and therefore it has the power make or break the book It made me happy that their romance was rooted in friendship and wasn t yet another case of insta loveI wasn t a huge fan of the writing style at first because all the sentence fragments irked the pedant in me The xposition is also pretty clumsy and there are uite A Few Abrupt Info few abrupt info However the flow of the narrative improves once the story really gets going and in the nd I didn t really mind itWhat I did really mind however was the very black and white way the book depicts gender and sexuality On several occasions it suggests that men and women are somehow fundamentally different in their behaviour and this is presented as something natural and innate I found this biological determinism frustratingly outdated and stifling The concept of the story would really allow for a deeper Color Atlas of Human Anatomy, Vol. 3 Nervous System and Sensory Organs exploration of gender as a social construct and gender ineuality but it never really goes there Instead of taking the opportunity to challenge gender stereotypes for the most part the storynds up The Facial Nerve enforcing themSinceven the cis straight characters aren t Surgery for Cochlear and Other Auditory Implants explored in any real depth it shouldn t be surprising that the book doesn t acknowledge that ueer peoplexist but I was still disappointed by it You d think this dystopian world that is obsessed with reproduction and biological sex would be Uncommon Leadership: How to Build Competitive Advantage by Thinking Differently especially bleak for LGBT people and it is a glaring oversight that this doesn tven get an offhand mention somewhereOur main character Eve is a fairly typical YA protagonist in that she is breathtakingly beautiful There s nothing wrong with that but the disturbing side ffect of the world building is that very man on the planet is uncontrollably lusting after her and this hints at a constant underlying threat of sexual violence Honestly the majority of the male characters just about go insane with lust when they Multichannel Marketing Ecosystems even see a glimpse of a woman be it real or a hologram The men in Eve s universe are driven by their hormones and only their good virtuous nature stops them from taking advantage of her This suggests that if any were actually to assault Eve it wouldn t really be their fault because they are simply acting out their biological urges That is such a creepy message to let go under the radar in a YA book that I was really taken aback by it Even though Eve s romantic interest Bram is all around sweet and respectful towards her he treats the other men s lecherous behaviourither as a joke or as a minor annoyance and never speaks out to challenge their views Another thing that irritated me about Bram was how obsessed he is with physical strength and how he looks down on anyone less fit than him He constantly jokes at the Extending Symfony 2 Web Application Framework expense of an overweight man he meets later in the story and also makes some condescending remarks about his best friend I would be fine with this if it was treated as a character flaw but the way it is written invites the reader to laugh at these characters with him I didn t join in because I don t find haha he s so fat to be particularly witty or funnyThe last point I want to make is a minor grievance compared to the other ones but I was also baffled by Eve s and Bram s strange anti science attitude The mystical romantic powers that they attribute to Mother Nature seem pretty anachronistic given that the highly technologicalnvironment they grew up in is all they have ver known To be fair this isn t really discussed in any detail but the false dichotomy still annoyed me Science isn t the opposite of nature it is the study of nature ArghThis is only the 1st book in a trilogy and the issues I ve raised might be addressed in the later books However unfortunately Eve of Man has not made me want to read the rest of the series 35 to 4The blurb intrigued me and my first thought was the incredible Children of Time for Eve to face her destiny Three potential males have been selected for her The future of humanity is in her hands She's always accepted her fateUntil she meets BramEve wants control I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in xchange for an honest reviewBold imaginative and cinematic but a few uestion marks over the credibility of the plotYes it s a dystopian book And let s face it there are rather a few of them around at the moment However this definitely stood out from the crowd thanks to its inventive approach and strong confident writing Eve is the last young female on Ritual Alliances of the Putian Plain: Volume Two: A Survey of Village Temples and Ritual Activities earth As this statement implies the human race has pretty much wrecked itself and for some reason women stopped producing female babies a while back This left humanity in a dire situation with only one woman to hopefully produce women As such Eve is hidden away from the world in a strange high tower building called The Dome She s protected yet isolated with only a hologram of Holly to act as her friend Ironically Holly is activated by a male called Bram Even ironically they fall in love and that s when things start getting very interesting Without giving too much away Bram s on a mission to rescue Eve from the cruel situation she s in but make no mistake the people of the Dome aren t going to make itasy for him or the other freevers What I really liked about this book was the moral dilemma at the centre of it Is it acceptable to keep a girl locked up for the greater good Is it right to treat her like a breeding cow And what methods of generating further females are permissible I also loved the set up itself There was something very erie about the concept of a huge dome towering over the rest of the messed up population this weird little place that should be paradise were it not all completely artificial Likewise the characters were good fun relatable interesting and certainly not too cliched apart from the bad guy Vivian I really wanted to know her back story but the book never uite got there One thing that stopped me giving this a full five stars was the problematic plot itself I couldn t uite comprehend that humanity would ver get to the point where only one woman of child bearing age Wish You Were Here: An Essential Guide to Your Favorite Music Scenes—from Punk to Indie and Everything in Between existed How would this situation arise Wouldn t be done before itver got to this state Whilst I appreciated the drama of the idea it felt a little too far fetched for comfort Likewise this whole they just wanted Eve to gain power plot line We ve seen that one in other books I wanted something fresh Why couldn t it genuinely be a case that they thought they were helping humanity That would have added a fresh layer of moral ambiguity that would have been interesting However I do accept that this genre often veers into the far fetched and in this case it wasn t to the detriment of my overall The Day Christ Was Born enjoyment I definitely had my nose stuck right into it throughout CW view spoilerDescription of some medical procedures Fertility and infertility test tube babies left to die because they were not male Man sacrifices himself to let othersscape hide spoiler I guess reality is just the world with which we are presentedI AM OBSESSED A million stars Eve of Man is going to be one of my highlights of 2018I started it yesterday and I only put it down because I was half asleep The synopsis already sounded very 5 Nights: Sinful Delights Boxed Set engaging to me I love books about future worlds and this one I liked very muchI received an ARC via netgalley for an honest review and I m so happy and thankful that I got the chance to read it It ll be published on May 31 2018 From the synopsis we know that Eve the first girl born in fifty years has been kept away from the opposite sex all her life When three potential man have been selected for her nothing goes as it should And then she meets Bram If you want to get blind into the book stop reading her Well notxactly Bram actually she meets Holly You ll probably be confused now what nonsens is this girl talking about Let me xplain The best way to create a connection to Eve and know her thoughts would be If she had a friend But how can you get a friend for a girl who s the last rescue for the human world A girl who lives in a Dom at the highest point of a tower so she ll be kept safe Riiiiiiiight you create one So Holly is being controlled by three different pilotes who navigate her they talk to Eve and make her feel comfortable One of them is Bram he has been taken from his mother by his super intelligent scientist father and lived in the tower since then Bram get s to know Eve as a child when he himself was one and after a certain time she starts to favour him instead of the other two pilots she recognises his yes behind Hollys certain time she starts to favour him instead of the other two pilots she recognises his And the Miss Ran Away with the Rake eyes behind Hollys I love love loved the idea behind this novel but have to admit the reactions of man towards Eve were pretty horrific Some of them never have seen a woman they were not allowed to visit public places and were kept save and are terrified when they see Eve for the first time There is a solider who s tempted by Eve so I ll warn you that there s the idea of rape forming in his mind but he doesn t do it If you want to avoid any mention of it you now have been warned We don t get to see much of the world outside of the dome but that didn t bother me There will be further books in this series and I m curious how things will play out What I liked about this book Injoy the dystopian genre very much also post apocalyptic worlds Trickle Down Tyranny: Crushing Obama's Dream of the Socialist States of America etc andspecially ones with good ideas The book was special in its scheme as well as in its writing style we got to read from two POV s Bram and Eve I admired that very much because I got drawn into the story and could sympathize with both of them The Pocket Wife especially with Eve She was separated from the rest of the world and never had the chance to meet new people and make friends I was so sad when she was screaming alone in her room after what has been done to her I lovedvery part of this book and look forward to read the second one I wanted to like this book because I think Tom and Gi are fantastic people and I The Color of Our Sky expected to like it because Gi is a talented adult writer However I could not click with this bookThe first half was okay From the first page I was nervous it wasn t uite my taste The writing is very simplistic and abrupt but in a way that doesn tngage me The story is very much told to you so there s not a lot of clues you need to pay attention to and sadly that left me bored At this point though it was a The second half changed things The story became fast paced but I felt unmoved by verything that was going on I didn t care about any of the side on I didn t care about any of the side like Frost and I was waiting for Eve to become the badass I wanted her to be but she never did The characters were stereotypical the writing was boring and I nded up not caring about any of it at allI understand that for the sake of the story gender was going to have uite a narrow view It still made me sad that Eve is a damsel trapped in a tower and Bram is the macho guy on a mission to save her There s no thought to sexuality Obsession either like what if Eve was a lesbian No thought was put into the fact that LGBT characters couldxist A sentence somewhere to acknowledge this would ve been nice The narrow worldview made me uncomfortable and added to the boringpredictable Cabaret: A Roman Riddle elements that left mextremely disappointed with this story 35 to 4The blurb intrigued me and my first thought was the incredible Children of Men The difference is in Children of Men no children had been born for ighteen years Whereas in Eve of Man it s been 50 years since the last baby girl was bornWithout females the human race was facing xtinction and by the time Eve was born the arth was a mess Men living without hope of a future have abused the world beyond imagination Overconsumption of fossil fuels accelerated global warming Then came the miracle veryone had hoped and prayed for Eve A special dome is created for her so she can live in a perfect world Safe and secureShe All Roads Lead Home even has a best friend Holly She knows Holly isn t real because she s the same age.

Exchange For book in xchange for honest review Eve is the first female to be born in 50 years In an ageing world destroyed by man she s raised be born in 50 years In an ageing world destroyed by man she s raised from the conflict in the dome a paradise of school lessons dancing and talking to her AI friend Holly But there s to Holly than meets the yes As Eve approaches her 16th birthday can she accept her inevitable fate as the saviour of her race or will a forbidden love force secrets out into the openI tried to like this I really did On paper it should be right up my street Dystopian YA female lead ideas of gender suppression but I just found it incredibly simplistic and uninspiring It all just feels a little bit been there done that with a rather unsophisticated take on The Handmaid s Tale and this idea that women have been oppressed and controlled which seems to be a recurrent theme in dystopian fiction at the moment The writing style is very overly descriptive in terms of feelings which I don t think really works here as nothing is left for the reader to interpret and develop their own opinions It s all telling with no subtleties which I think would have helped levate the text The world building is also rather limited Other than an overview at the beginning which gives an outline into the current state of the planet and humanities apparent lack of respect for the nvironment due to no future generations to pass it to there s little xplanation as to why the world is how it is Why are no female being born What xactly happened Would a world full of mainly men really result in global catastrophes I find this slightly condescending to believe Perhaps this will be Fiesta Moon expanded on in future literature but I really think time should have been spent trying to flesh out the world that I was suppose to care about The glimpses we see of life outside the dome were some of my favourite segments and I found the hints ofnvironmental destruction and how the Freevers live far interesting than any character in the dome Eve and Bram as the two narrators have very distinct voices and it was asy to differentiate when ach of them is in control of the narrative which helped with the flow of the story However they do unfortunately suffer from what comes across as instalove and I found uite a lot of their scenes together Uite Cringy Especially The Gushy Declarations Of cringy The Taste of Night especially the gushy declarations of We re given a background to suggest that Eve and Bram have grown up together and knowach other well but they ve never so much as touched It s a very clean romance which is rather childish and simple but to me it also feels like infatuation and the love of the unknown rather than romantic love which makes the second half of the book and the motives behind it ven harder to understandA major issue that I found in the book is this very clear divide in the story into two distinctive parts The first half is very Eve focused and centres around her life in the dome and her relationships with Bram and the Mothers the ageing women who care for her The second half is very much of a revolutionary fast paced action story I found it uite jarring although I did njoy the second half However again I found Bram s story a little too The Trust easy for him Everything falls into place with very little struggle and strife and his character goes from beaten down son of high powered genius to revolutionary leader without any real believable development of character In comparison Eve comes across increasingly like a damsel in distress as the story progresses with little ability to really fight for herself without the help of others This could have been a good story about gender dynamics and the distribution of power in a world devoid of females and the continuing struggle to preserve the female race Unfortunately I just couldn tnjoy it was much as I wanted but I genuinely hope this finds an audience with younger readers as an introduction into dystopian fiction with an innocent romance. Ver her life She wants freedomBut how do you choose between love and the future of the human raceEVE OF MAN is the first in an xplosive new trilogy by bestselling authors Giovanna Tom Fletch.
