Review: Eve by Anna Carey

Eve (Eve, #1)Eve by Anna Carey
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

The concept of this book sounds simply amazing, it really does, but that is about as far as that goes: the concept.

Eve could have been a really fascinating character but she really falls very flat. She's someone that is very naive. She falls victim to believing everything that the teachers at school feed her. She doesn't want to believe anything other than what she was told so when Arden another girl from school tells her that the things she thought were true weren't, she finds it hard to believe. So she does something stupid. It seems Eve does a lot of stupid things and continues to be naive for most of the story.

I think my biggest issue with Eve is how she goes from being very naive, to very smart, to very naive over and over again. It doesn't make her likable. It makes me dislike her if anything. She doesn't have anything that makes me relate to her, other than suffering great losses in her life.

Also, what was with the drop off of Arden? She's with them and then she's gone. There is no more mention other than a passing question as to where she might be.

I just felt like there were so many plot holes here it just did not make for an excellent story,
