didn't finish; uninteresting characters and writing

I liked everything about the book. Thick plot, rich historical tapestry, well fleshed antagonist (that's the real twist). Eventually good guys win, but way the plot thickens, how it twists and turns gave me goosebumps.

I received [b: The Murder of Adam and Eve|23316424|The Murder of Adam and Eve|William Dietrich|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1412629055s/23316424.jpg|42871102] by [a: William Dietrich|59608|William Dietrich|https://d.gr-assets.com/authors/1368634961p2/59608.jpg] from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I read the Amazon Kindle e-book version.

When I read this ARC book, I was in the YA Programming department, and recommended this for purchase. Our library did buy it, and it is still a highly circulating novel.

There are many Dystopian, other world stories that teens and young adults love. Me; not so much. It is my taste. I cannot go against best seller lists, extreme circulation numbers or book to movie ratios of Y/A literature. I just do not love it.

I enjoyed reading [b: The Murder of Adam and Eve|23316424|The Murder of Adam and Eve|William Dietrich|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1412629055s/23316424.jpg|42871102] because Nick is an adventurous and smart kid. He is a free range young person and I like that in his character. His unlikely friend Eleanor is an intelligent and thoughtful teen who is comfortable with herself and her abilities. These characteristics in teen characters always win me over.

Nick and Eleanor are chosen by an alien race; the Xu, and via transported to ancient Africa for a do-over.

The environment from the beginning of man's history until now is highlighted, as well as how humans treat each other, and the propensity for war.

This is a well written book, and if you have deep Y/A, Tween, Teen or Juvenile readers, I highly recommend this book.

Content: I cannot recall any bad language. There is no graphic sex. There is some violence.

I really enjoyed the last 20% of the book, wherein things are happening, Ethan Gage is fully engaged, and the historical writing is firing on all cylinders. Most of the rest of the book seems like misguided meandering with occasional sparks of interesting revelation or a mild twist.

It's not a bad book. Just not one of the best in the series.
