    3. 5 Words Flat, scientific, artsy, teens, true love.So, I m not a fan of time travel And I really didn t understand it in this one they majorly changed the past, surely that d change the fact that timetravel was even discovered and it annoyed me.But this story was sweet in a way, and a quick read.I was disappointed by the two dimensional characters, they were very flat Eden was perhaps the worst of the lot, and she was the main character I meant that I couldn t get invested in the story.I found th [...]

    4. Eh, what a mess this book turned out to be I m really disappointed There were so many things I didn t like I can t think of any redeeming quality Nothing I often get trapped by the cover when requesting books on NG I must seek help if I play to move from this state Eden s life changes when a new guy shows up at their school Ryan s a bit weird He doesn t remember basic historical facts and acts weird, in a way Eden s best friend Connor hates Ryan because he s been in love with Eden since forever [...]

    5. When new boy Ryan Westland starts at her school, Eden knows there s something different about him, and it s not that he s American He seems like a normal teenager, except for the fact that he doesn t seem to be able to recognise basic things, like pizza And he s never heard of Hitler Who hasn t heard of Hitler Little things like that create the one big mystery that is Ryan But these are things that can be explained away, however unlikely Eden and Ryan gradually spend and time together, soon be [...]

    6. Eden and Connor have been best friends forever Nothing has ever come between them, that is until new boy, Ryan, enters their school Ryan is different from the get go, not just hotter, but just straight out different He had never seen pizza before He had never heard of Hitler He drove a brand new car, yet he was too young to have his license Eden and Ryan hit it off right away, but she just couldn t put these things out of her head And why was Conner jealous, while Ryan kept asking about Conner T [...]

    7. This review appears on Happy Indulgence Check it out for reviews When I heard that this book had time travel and sci fi elements in it, I was immediately intrigued, but overall it was a disappointing Not because it was badly written by any stretch, but because it felt like it was written for a middle grade audience.Eden is instantly attracted to the new, mysterious boy Ryan who shows up at her school and is intrigued when he seems interested in her Ryan seems confused as he doesn t know what pi [...]

    8. Know of those slide arts Or whatever they are The paintings that are collections of differently ambient layers of drawing that, individually, are distinct but bring them together they either create a breathtaking piece of art or just a randomly put together piece of crap.After Eden s made up of many levels of layers and falls in between, leaning towards the side of crap.Level 1 The lowest, the one that only provides a slight background to the whole scene since so many have been stacked on top of [...]

    9. 2 starsOh dear After Eden, what can I say Perhaps I can start with that I should have known better I was tempted by the time traveling, the starry cover, which all hint to the kind of sci fi I easily fall for But I should have paid attention to the obvious instalove inherent in the synopsis I should have listened to my gut While to a certain extent I really liked the sci fi part of this, it was wrapped up in this sadly irritating instalove coating with a stupid main character.I guess I might as [...]

    10. 4.5 StarsAfter Eden is an interesting sci fi novel that I loved endlessly and could not put down until I was finished After Eden is set in the modern day following a girl named Eden who is just ordinary Until Ryan Westland rolls into school and sits next to her in art class everything changes He might look like a normal schoolboy on the outside, but why does he lack the general knowledge that a teenager, living in this century, should know For instance, how could someone not recognise pizza, or [...]

    11. Rating 4.5 StarsCan we just take a moment to stare at that gorgeous cover It s so vibrant I enjoyed this No, I really enjoyed this After Eden is a beautifully crafted, enthralling and exciting read I fell in love with all of the characters, and couldn t get enough of the unique premise and plot This was so good.From the moment I opened this book, I fell in love with the setting Perran The descriptions were detailed, and I could picture all of the settings so vividly in my mind I was able to slip [...]

    12. 2.5 stars.I liked the sf part of the story fine, and could have enjoyed this one though it was never going to be When You Reach Me level good , except for Eden herself, who struck me as vapid with a hefty helping of irritating Major irritation highlighted in the scene in which Eden, going to study with her best friend Connor, but knowing she ll see Ryan after, puts on her shortest skirt and sprays herself head to toe with perfume 1 She ll suffocate poor Connor when they re trying to study in his [...]

    13. I ll make this short and sweet So get this Ryan s a 17 y o alien kind of and a time traveler from the future He was sent from the future to save the world The world, as in, our world Earth But then things go awry when he unexpectedly falls in love with Eden Then things get further complicated when Eden discovers the truth, which not only compromises the entire mission, but could possibly cause serious consequences, and ultimate bodily harm death Sound fun It wasn t Interesting concept, but I jus [...]

    14. Check out Scott Reads It Sometimes book blurbs reveal way too little to the reader and the reader really has no idea what to expect from the book Then there are books like After Eden, where you read the description and you have the entire plot mapped out clearly for the reader I really feel as if the blurb for After Eden revealed way too much and that it should have been ambiguous and enigmatic There s really no fun in reading a book where the reader knows almost every plot element and there is [...]

    15. 3.5 stars Source I own a copy of this book 16 year old Eden doesn t fall all over herself when new boy Ryan starts at her school, but she can t help but develop feelings when he seems to like her.There s something odd about Ryan though, and Eden can t help but notice that he doesn t know who Hitler is, and doesn t know other everyday stuff either.Why is Ryan different And how long will it take Eden to figure it out This was an interesting YA story about love and duty.Eden was an interesting char [...]

    16. Pod a anot cie je to romantick sci fi Vo skuto nosti je to len romantick DAutorka tam pridala sci fi z pletku, aby kniha bola zauj mavej ia, ale nakoniec jej nevenovala to ko pozornosti, ko ko mala P rkr t sa dobre poplietla v paradoxoch, v pravidl ch cestovania asom a podobne i e ve k znalosti o tom nemala M m pocit, e cel to cestovanie asom a misia z bud cnosti v bec neboli d le it a nezdalo sa, ako by Ryana hlavn ho hrdinu to nejak extra zauj malo On len zab jal as s Eden Kniha obsahovala to [...]

    18. I just had this lying around, and ugh The voice of the protagonist was just so unrealistic to me I just couldn t get into it The sci if aspect of it was the only decent factor for me 2 stars.

    19. Happy book birthday to Helen Douglas Thanks so much to Bloomsbury Children s who gave me an ARC, this in no way affected my review I published this on my blog on Monday, but forgot to put it on After Eden is written in the perspective of a 16 year old girl called Eden who starts becoming friends with the new guy in school deliciously attractive Ryan Sometimes I found Eden to be a tad one dimentional Sure, I related to her in quite a few ways, but she wasn t the kind of character I admire for her [...]

    20. Received in exchange for an honest review Thanks you Bloomsbury I tried to imagine myself as an old lady, grey and wrinkled, with my life behind me And suddenly I knew what I wanted Not in the details, but the broad sweep of things I wanted my life to be like one of my favourite books a big, fat novel, each page filled with smallwritten words as though the only way to cram so much life in was to make the writing really small I wanted to be brave, take risks, make a difference, fall in love The c [...]

    21. 3.5 starsWhen the gorgeous new boy Ryan starts at her school Eden is just as attracted to him as the rest of the girls are but she is the only one who notices that there is something just not quite right about his reactions to certain things How can a normal teenage boy not recognise pizza and surely everyone has heard of Hitler haven t they The time Eden spends with Ryan the questions she has about him and she becomes determined to get to the bottom of his secret She s in for quite a shock wh [...]

    22. Eden meets new boy Ryan and he is kind of strange When Eden accidentally brings home a book called My Journey to Eden written by Connor she learns that Ryan is from the future Ryan knows that Connor gets his heart broken by Eden and then discovers the planet and names it after her Ryan has to stop that from happening Most things were well explained Like I was wondering how that would help since someone else could discover it but Ryan explains that it is only visible about every 800 years Ryan ho [...]

    23. 17 % into the book and what is it about till now Ryan is gorgeous Every girl wants to date Ryan Ryan has beautiful muscles Does he lift Ryan can draw Eden can t.Ryan knows a lot about astronomy but not about history.Ryan is vegetarian What a coincidence Eden is too Ryan is Mary Sue and the story plot in this book is like Waldo you can t find it It is about how amazing Ryan is and how normal is Eden And he seems to like her against all common sense How exciting.I think I will go back to men eatin [...]

    24. LOVE,LOVE,LOVE I m an unrepentant romance junkie and a sci fi lover to boot, so this book was right up my alley Eden and Ryan were so incredibly sweet together The mystery behind Ryan s presence kept me turning the pages and guessing incorrectly until I wound up finishing the book in a day And THANK YOU, Helen, for giving me a satisfying ending No cliffhangers here Woot

    25. Contemporary parts that reminded me of my own school days but NOT in a bad way, a realistic, authentic setting I could picture clearly, genuine characters, pretty darn cool story, and cute romance This book has everything.

    26. Read reviews at To Another World aBefore I say anything, please admire the cover Isn t it beautiful It may be a favourite cover of the year, this one After Eden follows Eden, who meets a boy who seems just a little bit mysterious She finds out many different points before she manages to figure out the puzzle, and has to do something about it.My key point about this book is how unique it is It s a time travel contemporary with that added splash of romance, and a subtle love triangle The beginnin [...]

    27. This review and others are posted at Inspiring Insomnia.I enjoy stories about time travel, but one of my big challenges can be trying to wrap my mind around the science Often, an author s explanation can be so complex that I eventually give up trying to figure out whether the author has covered all the bases involving the paradoxes of time travel In After Eden, Helen Douglas keeps the science simple and accessible, but there were some plot points that didn t make sense For just one example that [...]

    28. After Eden is a PHENOMENAL read I have to say that I am starting to love this sci fi dystopian genre because it has all the elements in it that make for a great movie or even TV show In after Eden we get to meet Ryan, Eden, and Connor These are three main characters of the story and what a story it is I love time travel and I love a love triangle and in this case it all fits in just right because of the way the story unfolds.We start the book out where Connor and Eden are at a club partying and [...]
