Absolutely brilliant

I loved it. The hardest part is knowing I have to wait for 2 more books. But knowing their story will continue fills me with so much happiness. This is an incredible story and written by a husband and wife team. You can hear their voice in the characters giving them life, giving them depth. It works so well and is so magical. Can’t wait for book 2!!!!! Hurry up and write it!!

WOW!

It’s been a long time since I read (listened) a book as good as this one. It’s compelling and totally unique. I am looking forward to a sequel. I’ve not stopped listening to it for the past 3 days.

Thanks Tom and Gi!

Fantastic book, great audio

I thought both the story and the narrators were wonderful. The main characters were very likeable and had depth.

I thought when I started the book that it would go to a darker place (like handmaids tale), but I actually found the book quite optimistic about how humankind would treat the last woman on Earth. Of course, it was dark in the sense that it was brutally honest about the harsh scientific realities of having one fertile woman in the world, but the authors balanced it well with a real hopefulness for humanity.

I would have liked to gotten to know a couple of the side characters a bit better before they were taken away, but I did still get enough to get attached to them and be very sad to lose them.

Great YA fiction for youth and adults alike

So great to have a female protagonist that I would be happy to have my daughter look up to. She’s strong and balanced, but they still give her character a good arc. Despite her circumstances, they give her loads of agency and she is well-rounded and vital. The male protagonist is well-written and doesn’t fall into the same old YA patterns. He starts out flawed, for sure, but his character grows. There’s some really interesting experimenting done with the idea of identity and gender and their interplay.

They do fantastic world-building for the book without weighing it down with excessive detail. The secondary and even tertiary characters are colorful and interesting. It’s a fun ride from start to finish and I wish it had been around when I was a teen. Very much looking forward to reading the next one when it comes out. And probably the movie that someone somewhere is probably already planning.

Great start to the trilogy!

The narrators were phenomenal to put it mildly. they did a great job capturing the voice of the characters Eve and Bram.

The story itself was engaging and well written.

The first issue I had with the story was the authors excessive descriptions on how fat one of the characters was. Anytime that one character spoke, walked, stood in a doorway it was all about how fat they we're. No other character was described in terms of body fat.

The second and last issue was that towards the end it got dramatic. I realize that the book is about a 16 year old girl and an 18 year old boy so the drama is going to happen no matter what. It felt like the writers were in a hurry to push the plot forward in the second half of the book.

That being said, this did contain some surprises and didn't take the most obvious route. The narrators made this a delight to listen to. I didn't get bored once.

Worth it!

Beginning

Okay, here we go. Another what if and another doomsday thing.
I like the idea, I like the last say four hours of this book. My general problem with it is just that it’s somewhat slow and excruciating in the beginning. Not that I don’t understand why they need to cover all bases to make sure the book makes sense, it still kinda doesn’t. Maybe it all will make better sense when we get the rest of the story (two more books if I’m not wrong) but for now I’m slightly disappointed considering the teaser that was out a month ago was so good. I feel like we learned a lot more about Eve than Bram, yet it’s disappointing because they made her “feel like she wanted to be deep” but then felt about as deep as a kiddie pool. I am intrigued by Bram, and HOPE we get to hear more about him. For now I’m gonna try to give it another shot in a couple of months in hope to get more out of it. If they keep it up they made a good story, they have the potential to be the next big triology out there - and with that there comes a lot of possibilities. Giovanna and Tom are both wonderful writers, I just hope the characters get a little more personality.
I’m definitely keeping this book and trying the next one, even though I’m over the age it’s aimed at - they might just surprise us with a killer series in the end.

OMFG!!!

This book is amazing Tom and Gi have surpassed my expectation of what to expect from Eve of Man and I have listened to the whole thing in one day!! The characters are relatable, loveable and dislikeable in all the right places. The description of the world in which Eve is living in is so detailed and intricate I was right there with her!! So many twists and turns I was hooked from get go right to very last word!!! I CANNOT wait for book 2! In fact I’m off to start this all over again thank you mr & mrs Fletcher xxx

Brilliant book. As soon as I started listening I was captivated. Its the first book I've listened to on Audible and I loved it. I loved how each character told their side of the story I felt you really got to know Eve and Bram. Can't wait for the next part of the trilogy to be published I'm hoping it won't be too long
