I wanted to like this book because I think Tom and Gi are fantastic people and I 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 t engage 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 everything that was going on I didn t care about any of the side characters 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 ended 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 either like what if Eve was a lesbian No thought was put into the fact that LGBT characters could exist A sentence somewhere to acknowledge this would ve been nice The narrow worldview made me uncomfortable and added to the boringpredictable elements that left me extremely disappointed with this story

I received an ARC through NetGalley in exchange for an honest reviewThere are number of things in Eve of Man that left me feeling deeply uncomfortable and that really took away any 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 I especially 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 catalyst for change in this story and therefore it has the power to 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 exposition is also pretty clumsy and there are uite a few abrupt info dumps However the flow of the narrative improves once the story really gets going and in the end 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 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 story ends up enforcing themSince even the cis straight characters aren t explored in any real depth it shouldn t be surprising that the book doesn t acknowledge that ueer people exist but I was still disappointed by it You d think this dystopian world that is obsessed with reproduction and biological sex would be especially bleak for LGBT people and it is a glaring oversight that this doesn t even 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 effect of the world building is that every 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 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 behaviour either 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 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 technological environment they grew up in is all they have ever 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
