Required reading for everyone!

This wonderful book goes beyond the normal sci-fi book into the realms of social commentary, but without pushing it down one's throat.The story really makes us think about how we would react, being thrust into someone else's body, unasked and unable to do anything about it, nor could the donor! It questions the rights of parents, doctors, sociologists, scientists to use their power in such borderline cases. The way this is handled is touchingly sensitive and surprisingly low-key for a book aimed at this age-group; it allows the reader to form his/her own conclusions, which generally arrive at the same point that author is aiming for.The ending is is especially well done and one's heart leaps as Eva makes her decision - good on her!Far better than many mainstream science fiction novels - this rates with the best of Sheri Tepper or Connie Willis. *****

What a good book

I read this book for a boook report and i dont really like reading books. I usually end up finishing them up the weekend before there due. But as soon as I started to read this i couldn't put it down it was sooooooo good! My mind just got caught up into all the text. If you really like exciting books i suggest this book because it just traps you inside and you cant get out. if you read this book you wont want to put it down!

Eva! The one and only.

This book would have to be one of the best books i have ever read. Which isn't many. It explaines how a young girl was put into a chimps body and had to live like that for the rest of her life. She had to lern how to use the chimps body to move and comunicate with other chimps. This book is kinda like the kind of book that is boaring in the begining but is like "wow" at the end. I recamend this book to anyone who doesn't like to read. It will open up your mind and make you think about all the different storys and feelings there really are out in the world that is all writen on paper. But to expearience them "you" have to make the efert.

What is our future going to be?

This book really made me contemplate what I think could be the answer to that question. Are we really going to festroy everything thats truly valuble, including our sleves. I think this novel had many intresting and well-thought through themes, such as the one mentioned above. It deals with one persons own feelings and dealing with a completly nw identity and way of life, but it also deals with society and humanity as a whole, and the outcome of what we will be if we continue on the path we are following. I urge anyone to read this book, no matter their favorite kind of genre. It is exceptionally good, and makes a point we all need to hear.

Eva is a wonderful, provocative book for teenagers.

It's one of the best books I've read in a long time. While being highly entertaining, it addresses important moral issues. Eva is a young teenager whose body has been mangled beyond repair in a terrible car accident. It is assumed that this book takes place in the future, when scientists have highly advanced technology. They can save Eva's mind and soul, by putting in the body of a chimp. Peter Dickenson takes us on a fascinating journey told through the eyes of Eva. You won't be able to put it down.
