Publisher's Summary

Where do you go when nowhere is safe?

Sixteen years after a deadly virus wiped out most of Earth’s population, the world is a perilous place. Eighteen-year-old Eve has never been beyond the heavily guarded perimeter of her school, where she and two hundred other orphaned girls have been promised a future as the teachers and artists of the New America. But the night before graduation, Eve learns the shocking truth about her school’s real purpose - and the horrifying fate that awaits her.

Fleeing the only home she’s ever known, Eve sets off on a long, treacherous journey, searching for a place she can survive. Along the way she encounters Arden, her former rival from school, and Caleb, a rough, rebellious boy living in the wild. Separated from men her whole life, Eve has been taught to fear them, but Caleb slowly wins her trust... and her heart. He promises to protect her, but when soldiers begin hunting them, Eve must choose between true love and her life.

In this epic new series, Anna Carey imagines a future that is both beautiful and terrifying. Readers will revel in Eve’s timeless story of forbidden love and extraordinary adventure.

    Story
    "A new world filled with love and action!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Eve to be better than the print version?

    I really do prefer listening to books because its the most practical and exiting way to get the story. Even dough I don't have english as my mother-tongue, its easy to understand the language used in this book. Sometimes the narrator really annoys me, but I really liked this one!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love books were you are taken into a new world. I think its the perfect amount of both action and love in it. I don't like books to be overfilled with love...


    What about Tavia Gilbert’s performance did you like?

    I love the way she really "becomes" the characters! I can tell by the way she uses her voice which character is speaking, and that is really handy. I am also very happy that her voice ins't annoying.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    A world full of lies, soon to be revealed.


    Any additional comments?

    I would recommend this book to anyone who seek a book series that will drag you into a new world.

    Story
    "Problematic lead keeps getting in the way"
    What did you like best about Eve? What did you like least?

    Carey built up an interesting world that I'd like to learn more about. The post plague politics and resistance are intriguing elements that don't get a lot of coverage in this first book of the series. Unfortunately, the point of entry is Eve, a character who refuses to take charge of her own agency at any point. She along with all the other young women left have been incredibly sheltered, but it irritates me no end that Eve seems intent on ceding all authority and decision making to anyone else, especially to the first boy she meets.


    What could Anna Carey have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    While Eve had to start out weak, it would help if she actually grew and learned as the story continued. Maybe this happens later in the series, but she is such a aimless character by the end of book one, I'm not all that interested in what happens to her next.


    Do you think Eve needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I suppose it would be necessary to redeem Eve's character, if that is ultimately a goal.


    Any additional comments?

    The story moves along at a good clip, and the overall atmosphere created is engaging. There are several points where the story takes an interesting turn. I would have just preferred to follow any other character but Eve at each of those transitions.

    I'm a humble Public Servant working for county government. I enjoy futuristic Sci fi, murder mysteries, Tim Dorsey, & dystopian genres.

    Story
    "Only download if you enjoy naive lead characters"
    What would have made Eve better?

    "Eve", the main character, bumbles her way through a post-apocalyptic America and makes selfish choices. So unrealistic and the story simply does not get stronger. I usually enjoy Young Adult books because of the underlying message for growing adolescents; but I cringe at the life lessons taught by this character.

    Story
    "Took me a 2nd listen to get into it but I loved it"

    I really enjoyed this book - it was a good spin on the 'earth disaster' stories.
    I bought this book during the 1st in the series sales and gave it a listen and couldn't get into it. I tried a couple weeks later and loved it. (I bought several other books in that sale and couldn't get into those either!)
    The thing that appealed to me the most when considering buying the book was Tavia Gilbert - I am a big fan of her narration.
    I would highly recommend this book and I'm thinking it would be a good one for my teenage daughter to listen to.

    Story
    "Glad I got it on sale"

    I had a very hard time with this - I can withstand some plot or setting holes if the story or characters are interesting. But this just had me rolling my eyes throughout the entire read.

    Characters:

    Some male writers get criticized for making women nuns or whores - and nothing in between. Well, in this book we have the female writer version: men are rapists or purely angelic. And any female in the book is a good person - there are no shades of grey in there. Even Arden, who is supposed to be the 'bag girl' loses all personality half way through the book. And let's not get into the love interest, Caleb, whose personality and distinctiveness is as thin as a piece of paper. But the big problem is Eve herself. Helpless, mopey....this the person who supposedly suddenly rebelled after a lifetime of following rules? Her traits change by the minute and just don't make sense. But really, that she isn't a strong person or becomes strong based on her trials is the real let down for me. If you start out with a milquetoast 'save me!' character, at least give her room to grow and not need to be saved over and over.

    Plot Holes:

    This book is riddled with plot/story issues that just can't be glossed over. A lot of YA dystopian requires suspension of disbelief and to not think too hard about the story/plot - but the inconsistencies in this one are so glaring that it's impossible not to completely trip over them. Things like the heroine running in a dark rainy forest at night - yet she's able to see just fine where she's going. And despite being closely chased with pursuers right behind her, her love interest calls out to her all the time from across a river. That along the side of the river is a random crashed helicopter and they hide in it because the pursuers are close behind - and the pursuers don't check it carefully despite not finding the heroine anywhere else in the forest? Or better yet, in a backyard with a pool and a tall fence, pursuers running right behind them, the two girls hide in a small shed - as if the pursuers wouldn't find them? Really? Or the girl they meet up with in the Arizona desert has mosquito bites....

    And the whole world setup just doesn't make sense. Plague I get - but characters walk around or use a horse in the ruined suburbs. Why not a bike? And why are there only men out in the lands - why not women? And yeah, I think it is a good idea to take a sheltered girl and throw her out into the horrors of a post apocalyptic world with nothing to her name - all to 'save' her? Let's face it, she would be set up for a far more horrific fate than being a brood mare chained to a bed (which doesn't make sense either - chained to a bed for 9 months ???? Bedsores, anyone?)

    Ok, so nothing worked for me. 2 stars because it wasn't hard to read.

    The narrator did a fine job. I'm just glad I got this on sale or I'd be really upset I wasted a credit on this quality of book.

    "Starting next book NOW!"

    I am so glad the next book is already out so I can jump right into it. Tavia Gilbert did a woderful job with narration. (Narration needs to be good to keep me involved.) Anna Carey did an excellent job with this book/audiobook! The pace was smooth and never slowed or got dull. She kept my attention throughout the story. Quick overview: Eve, who is now eighteen, has been living at a school with other orphaned girls after loosing her mother to a plague. On the eve of her graduation from school she finds out the horrifying truth about the future that awaits them all. Forced to escape alone and nowhere to go, Eve runs looking for a place to survive. Been taught to fear everything and trust no one past the school gates, she must lean on the inner strength she never knew she had and push through her fears and lack of trust in order to survive.

    "Awesome Find!"

    This book is by far one of my favorite finds on Audible. I found it while just browsing and cannot be happier. The narrator did an excellent job, it was an easy listen, and I could not put it down. I loved the story and thought it was extremely well written (not Dickens, mind you, but great all the same!). I loved it so much, that as soon as I finished with this, I immediately purchased the second book in the trilogy "Once". And, the sequel is just as good as the first. Take my advice and get this book. You will not be disappointed!

    "Makes You Think"

    I am more into supernatural stuff, but I bought this book for Tavia Gilbert, who I feel is the best narrator ever. That said, I was into it, the story is different, not very plausible maybe, but it pulls you in. The writing is smooth and it flows nicely, very visual. It ends abruptly, I see there is another book in the series and I will download that eventually, but I'm not rushing for it. If there was a different narrator, I don't think I would like it as much, Tavia Gilbert is just really good, so I'm going to recommend this one, if for no other reason then her reading of it.

    "This Is A Great Book!!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Eve to be better than the print version?

    Yes, only if you like to sit or lay down and imagine the book while its read to you!!!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the genre of the book and some of it was actually funny!


    Have you listened to any of Tavia Gilbert’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but she did a wonderful job!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I laughed soo hard, a little boy first thought to be a girl loved to wear a 'tutu'!


    Any additional comments?

    This book was written very well and was packed full of adventure. I only have 1 complaint.... The main character 'Eve' was a very dumb character. She is like the girl in the movie Twighlight. They make the dumbest choices that skrew over everyone else around them. You just want to give them a wakeup slap and tell them not to be soo stupid!
