I love how the writer wrote in the way that you can keep reading, but the mistakes of the main character becomes unbelievable. She clueless of something then knows others. just doesnt make sense. Her education should made her an ounce smarter. But I'm not done. Worth a read. No regrets. I need to remember she's like a child at heart.

I loved this book! Some parts of the story are completely unpredictable. Normally I know what's going to happen and when, but with Anna's Eve trilogy, I was so surprised. The story line is unique with so many twists and turns throughout the series. I will guarantee any person who reads this book that they will be surprised at least 3 times.

A very good book. I wasn't sure bout it in the beginning, but I grew to love the characters and be pleasantly disturbed by the new society. I thought Eve underwent immense character development, finally emerging as a strong, determined, understandable person in a world of turmoil. The ending totally left me surprised- definitely Not what I was expecting. Do I like it even more for that? Yes

I read this book in one night. It's not as original as I would have like it but it was still good and fast paced.

Eve (the actual character) is really boring. I thought the story itself was interesting, but Eve just keeps making stupid choices in the book that make me sigh. If the character was more of a kickass, rebellious type this book would be way better. Or even if she was shy and quiet but observed more about people and had more depth it would have been great too. In my opinion, she has no real qualities - she's a book smart, dumb airhead. (Maybe that doesn't make sense...haha) and thus is very hard to like. The other characters are better though. I will check out the sequel when it comes out, but I think this book could have been a lot better than it was.
