Taking Eve: Eve Duncan, Book 16 | [Iris Johansen]

Taking Eve: Eve Duncan, Book 16

Forensic sculptor Eve Duncan’s mission is to bring closure to the families whose loved ones have vanished. She knows their anguish - her own beloved daughter, Bonnie, was taken from her when Bonnie was just seven years old. It is only recently that this mystery was resolved and Eve could begin her journey to peace. Now Jim Doane wants the same kind of answers that Eve always longed for. His 25-year-old son may or may not be dead, and he has only burned skull fragments as possible evidence.

Publisher's Summary

Number-one New York Times best-selling author Iris Johansen is back with the first book in a chilling new Eve Duncan trilogy that asks the question: Will Eve survive what lies ahead?

Forensic sculptor Eve Duncan’s mission is to bring closure to the families whose loved ones have vanished. She knows their anguish - her own beloved daughter, Bonnie, was taken from her when Bonnie was just seven years old. It is only recently that this mystery was resolved and Eve could begin her journey to peace. Now Jim Doane wants the same kind of answers that Eve always longed for. His 25-year-old son may or may not be dead, and he has only burned skull fragments as possible evidence. But he cannot go to the police for answers without risking his own secrets and exposing his dark past, so instead he chooses a bold step to find the truth - a truth that takes Eve down a twisted path of madness and evil and into the darkest heart of her own history. Doane needs Eve Duncan’s skills and he’ll do anything to get them. Even if it means taking Eve.

    Story
    "not worth the listen"
    What disappointed you about Taking Eve?

    The story is so lame. This is probably the worst of any of the Eve books.


    What could Iris Johansen have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    The first books in this series were really good. The last books have been laughable. The dialogue is trite and the story lines get more absurd with each book.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The voices of all the males is terrible. The all sound like a bunch of phony gangsters.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Taking Eve?

    Almost all of them. I don't know why I listened to as much as I did.


    Any additional comments?

    I would like Iris Johansen to please go back to her original story lines and leave out the supernatural.

    "no ending"
    If you’ve listened to books by Iris Johansen before, how does this one compare?

    In the passed I could wait for a new book. But lately with the Eve, Joe, Bonnie books the ending just drop off , like this one. I read so much that I have to reread this book once the new one is released so I know what to expect.


    What about Elisabeth Rodgers’s performance did you like?

    Very good reader, very good


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When joe had to pick between going to Eve or Jane. We never feel any close bond between Jane and Joe. It either Joe and Eve or Eve and Jane. In this book you can feel the bond.


    Any additional comments?

    In most book you are happy that it leaves you waiting for more, but this one just didn't clearly ans questions. I didnt like that.

    "Nora Roberts / JD Robb Wanna be"
    What would have made Taking Eve better?

    Nothing, it seemed like a ripoff of an Eve Dallas series.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Iris Johansen? Why or why not?

    No


    What didn’t you like about Elisabeth Rodgers’s performance?

    Accents


    Any additional comments?

    It is understood that leading into a sequel is intriguing and acceptable, but the ending of this book said nothing but commercial marketing to me. (I am going to stop writing now, buy my next book).

    "Another great story in the Eve Duncan Series!"
    If you could sum up Taking Eve in three words, what would they be?

    Inventive, creative, and moving


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Eve is my favorite because the book shows her as a very strong woman who wants to keep her family safe.


    Have you listened to any of Elisabeth Rodgers’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes. It is a very good performance.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I was angry with the antagonist. He is just evil or stupid or both.

    "Worst Narrator Ever"
    Would you try another book from Iris Johansen and/or Elisabeth Rodgers?

    as a long time fan of Eve Duncan books, I may never listen to another one again if it's narrated by this woman. Awful delivery, the male characters are laughable.


    What didn’t you like about Elisabeth Rodgers’s performance?

    everything - I may have to start reading again to enjoy the story

    "Disappointed"

    Whatever happened to novels having a plot that ends with some sort of resolution? Lazy writing made it seem like the author had given up on her characters - and made me wish I'd given up trying to listen.

    "Eve"
    Where does Taking Eve rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Top of my list


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Eve. The whole book is about her


    Which character – as performed by Elisabeth Rodgers – was your favorite?

    Reader did a great job


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Made you really not like her kidnapper and his dead son


    Any additional comments?

    Wish there was more of Bonnie in the storyline . Sometimes to many characters to keep track of but in true johansen style.
