Sep 26, Paige Turner rated it did not like it. I could not read this entire book. It was just more of the same old Eve worship and I have grown very tired of that.
I ended up reading the first few chapters, one chapter in the middle, the last two chapters and the epilogue and felt I didn't miss anything, really. All the characters, including Eve, are just too too much. They are exceptionally attractive in one way or another, all of them have very strong personalities and character traits, have above average intelligence and are extremely wit I could not read this entire book. They are exceptionally attractive in one way or another, all of them have very strong personalities and character traits, have above average intelligence and are extremely witty.
And, other than Eve herself, they all fiercely worship Eve The storyline gets lost in this kind of over-the-top nonsense and the Eve worship has become the story. Johansen has taken what once was an enjoyable series and made it into a caricature of itself. I found myself growing more and more annoyed with this series, especially these last three books. When something annoys you more than it brings you pleasure, it's time to say goodbye. Which is what I am doing to the Eve Duncan series. First let me say I normally love all of Ms. Johansen's books, but I really struggled to get through this last series and especially this last book.
The first few books of the Eve Duncan series sucked me right in, but the series is getting a little too far out there for me.

The characters were never overwhelming or left you with "I just want to flip through the next few pages and see i First let me say I normally love all of Ms. The characters were never overwhelming or left you with "I just want to flip through the next few pages and see if I can skip over that character. These bizarre characters are taking over the plot line. The characters and plot line are too unbelievable. The story lines used to leave me wanting more. I no longer impatiently await the release of the new book in the series. Over all "Silencing Eve" didn't do anything for me.
I usually tear through a book in a few days. An Iris Johansen book I typically tear through in about 18 hours. This book took me 3 weeks to read. This series and this book fell terrible short.

Dear Iris Johansen, Well, I have stuck with you through thick and thin, through the torture of searching I do realize some parents wait for YEARS and never find their children, but this is fiction and finally finding, Bonnie. At that point, I really thought you might wrap up your Eve Duncan series, but no, you continued to plow on.
This brought us to this trilogy, with the final book called "Silencing Eve". I really thought this might be the final chapter -- all of the major players, both stars and "guest stars" were present, but alas, no, this series is not finished. However, I am. I cannot take this, any more. Signed, A Frustrated Librarian View all 4 comments. Oct 15, Linda Munro rated it really liked it. My apologies to those who have told me they look forward to reading my reviews; I have been so busy that I have not taken the time to write a review in months.
Of course, I have still found time to read and have managed to read two novels a week, so now, I will try to write brief reviews on each of them. This is the last book in the Taking Eve trilogy.

I love Johansen's work, but I have to say the last book of this trilogy seemed to drag on, which is something I am unaccustomed to finding in her work. It seemed that the story could have ended with a few more chapters added to the second book in the trilogy; but rather than doing that, a great deal of filler was added to this book.
I am not saying that the book was not well written, I am simply saying that I found myself wanting to skip to the last couple of chapters and forget about what went on in the middle of the book.

This wasn't as badly written and boring as the first two in this trilogy, although it was still quite overwritten, for instance with telephone use.
If an author says a character calls someone, I don't need to know that she takes the phone out, accesses her contacts directory, finds the person's name, calls, listens to it ring, and then the other person answers.

I haven't given up entirely on Iris Johansen, but I'm not going to rush to get any of her books anymore. The Eve-Quinn-Bonnie trilogy was This wasn't as badly written and boring as the first two in this trilogy, although it was still quite overwritten, for instance with telephone use. The Eve-Quinn-Bonnie trilogy wasn't great either; I'm not sure if her son is writing them with her the one book I read by both of them was dreadful or if she's just lost interest in the characters.
Honestly the most interesting part of this trilogy was the 3-part cover. Oct 02, Donna Barrett rated it it was amazing. There were so many parts that made me want to cry. I feel Jane's pain and the love that Joe and Eve have doe each other. Third of a trilogy. I have liked the Eve Duncan series from the first but it is getting a little too far out there for me. Now we not only have ghosts but an animal whisperer, a blood manipulator, an supper sleuth who puts patterns together as well as an old fashioned police detective.
The characters are taking over the plot line and for me making it too unbelievable to be reading any more. Jan 13, Jeanne Grunert rated it did not like it. A bunch of blithering idiot characters, dreadful unending dialogue, and people saying things like "I want to have sex with you.
Honestly, this series went down hill, culminating in this unending drivel. Skip it. Oct 01, Chantal rated it really liked it. This was by far the best book in the trilogy. It was fact paced, action packed and I read it in one sitting as soon as I downloaded it. I still hold my opinion that this series is going too much in the way of supernatural aspects, and find there to be too many supporting characters that keep jumping in to the action.
In this book some of that served a purpose, but it makes me wary of future books. I am not sure if I will read the next book - it will depend on the plot and characters. The superna This was by far the best book in the trilogy. The supernatural aspects are overtaking the plot and the initial storyline that was set-up. Part of me wonders if it is due to the initial storyline being resolved and the author needing to extend the series beyond it.
Either way, I am not sure if this series is still for me, it will depend on what direction the author opts to go. But this was an enjoyable book, and it wrapped up the trilogy well. Feb 27, Cheryl rated it it was ok. I am a fan of Eve. She is both smart and tough. The rest of the gang is great too. Yet this time I was not really feeling the vibe with this book. I was only semi interested in the events taking place in the story. There seemed to be a lot of mopping around. In addition, I found the high intensity action lacking until the last third of the book and no strong leader.
There was a lot of times throughout this book that I found myself just going through the motions of reading but nothing was really I am a fan of Eve. There was a lot of times throughout this book that I found myself just going through the motions of reading but nothing was really sinking into my head. Which I really did not care if it did or not. There was not much of importance that I was missing. Plus, if you have read these books then you know how the story would end. So no surprise there. In fact, I was so disinterested that I did not even get emotional when one of the characters passed away.
However I still enjoy this author and her books. A great conclusion to the arc with Eve and her father. This is a fast paced story with everyone racing against time to find Eve. Catherine showing up is great. Eve still able to fight crazy Doane is well done and consistent with Eve's character. The twists and turns in this story had me spinning. This is why it was a 3. Some of the evil villains are shocking.

It also resolves a relationship tug of war.
Enjoyable, shocking, heartbreaking and a page turner. Recommended for suspense lovers. Feb 24, AndreaH rated it did not like it. I've read this series since the first book, and wished Johansen ended it long before this book, the last in a trilogy within the series.

Eve has been captured by the father of a serial killer, and is believed by most to be dead. But her friends are pulling a fast one; they know she's alive and are out to rescue her, laying a false trail for her kidnapper by hosting a funeral for her.

I think Johansen, again, crams every character who played a part in the past books into this one, and ups the whoo-whoo factor by about I know how it ended, and I was hoping actually Johansen would be brave and kill off a major character but no such luck. If her next book is in this vein, I'm really gonna call it quits.

Apr 18, Kay rated it did not like it. The cast of characters is huge, and Johansen does an admirable job of keeping track of all of them. My only real complaint is that in trying to let readers who are not familiar with her earlier books learn about each character, Johansen turns what should be a wrenching funeral scene into what seems like a meeting of the Super Friends. Silencing Eve , the final book in the trilogy, starts by giving readers a shock: Eve is dead. Toggle Navigation.
