This book was just amazing.....I have never been given so many thought provoking ideas in one book. I was amazed at how well the other took on the untraditional storyy of a girl with a human mind and a chimp body so professionally. It seriously makes you think about the future and the current pace of medical science and if what was done to Eva will someday be done to actual humans someday soon. It is also quite thought provoking how the suthor touched upon the idea of the apocolypse (if i spelled it right). I really do belive this book was a page-turner as i didnt really put this book down for too long until i was through readiing it. Although i agree this book can be confusing for younger readers or those who find it a task to think about and disect what they are reading----therefore i reccomend the reader be older and or mature to be able to understand the storyline.

Some May Like It, I Hated It

As an avid reader, it's really hard for me to find a book that I don't like or one that I can't get into. Eva, however, is one of the worst books I've ever read. It's not that it's poorly written, or even that it's a dumb premise. I just didn't care for it: the chara...
As an avid reader, it's really hard for me to find a book that I don't like or one that I can't get into. Eva, however, is one of the worst books I've ever read. It's not that it's poorly written, or even that it's a dumb premise. I just didn't care for it: the characters, the situations, etc., were all annoying and almost laughable. I've never given a book only one star, but in my opinion, this one deserved it. However, if you're in to Science Fiction/Medical-type books, this may be up your alley. I like some Sci-Fi, but I m not a big Sci-Fi person in general.

    Great

    At first this book was a little confusing, but after you got into it you understand it. This book had a good and sad ending. If I could I would make it so that everyone could read it since it is so good.

    Not That Great

    Just like everyone else, i din't think the book was that great. Girls and chimps don't mix. Unrealistic, to slow moving, and boring. I wouldn't recommed this book.

    Great! But a lttle confusing

    About a girl whose life changed before her eyes. At first she was confused about where she wanted to be, but then she realized where she belonged, with her own kind in the jungle. Too many people. Confusing, but great. Must read!

    ehhhh

    This book is like Moulin Rouge. The first 30 mins/pages of these are very confusding and boring and your thinking 'Why the H*** did I spend 9 bucks on this movie/book . Then after that it gets intresting, and you think 'oh h*** I can live through the rest of it' Finally, at the end the main female lead dies. But to me MR is better. Eva is just boring and dull. A girl stuck in a Chimpanze suit. (sacarstically) Great. I dont think many reviwers ever think about the readability to the average 8th grade mind.

    Interesting book

    The book Eva, by Peter Dickinson is a new interesting book! I thought the book was o.k. because it was a good sci-fi book but personaly the book was slow moving and very dicriptive. Eva the main caracter, has a big difference she is a chimpanzee with a human brain! The only thing that bothered me about the book was that the topic was imposible! Although the book in general is an o.k. interesting discriptive book with a new view

    An O.K. book to read if you have some time to spare, and if you're interested in science fiction.

    This book is very interesting and full of suspence in the beginning -- the reader wonders what Eva's secret might be. However, toward the middle, it's not as page-turning as most of the other books that I've read. I guess it's Okay, but it's not what I've expected it to be.
