Has a slow start and is a bit predictable but the ending blew the predictability out the water. Actually the end sucked major but in a sort of good way? It was the NOOOO NOOO NOOO ending that makes you want to pick up the second one.

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.

However, just as graduation is around the corner she discovers a terrifying secret. There is no jobs after her schooling ends, instead the girls of her school are subjected to work that she would only think to find in a nightmare. In her desperation, Eve flees the school. By a stroke of luck she meets up with Arden, her arch-rival from school, and Caleb. With their help, Eve just might be able to escape this web of lies, in which no one knows what's truly the truth.

From the inside cover------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.
