    Undecided about this one...

    I almost always read reviews on a book before I read it, just to see what others thought about it. I've read the other books in the Eve Duncan series prior to this one & LOVED them... so when I saw all the bad reviews for this book, I was confused!! I was like surely, it couldn't have been that bad!! These books are great!! Now after having read it, I just don't know what to think. This book wasn't like any of the other ones and yes, as everyone else has said, this book was very sci-fi and not at all realistic. It was just hard to get into since you don't believe the story for a second. All the terms they use from all those years ago & the plot as a whole just never really pull you in all the way. The beginning is interesting... however, once you get into what is going on, it leaves you thinking more "What??? There's no way! That's stupid!" So... I give this book an "EH" rating. I am definitely disappointed but will continue to read this series. I heard the next in the series, "Countdown", is again, mostly about Jane. I find Jane a little boring & TOO far beyond her years to be believable. If you met someone like her in person, you'd probably be very annoyed, so it's not any different when reading about her. Hopefully Countdown is better though.

    VERY DISAPPOINTED!!!

    I've always loved reading Iris Johansen books but this one was a big, big disappointment. Boring---boring---boring. I hope this book was just a fluke.

    Not what I expected

    I love Iris Johansen novels, and I happened upon the Eve Duncan series by accident. I could not wait to read this book. I thought is was a very confusing plot line. It didnt really have anything to do with Eve. I was hoping for a more of a twist, or even a few twists. This book didnt grab me the way her other books do.

    A big dissappointment

    I've read all the other Eve Duncan novels and have enjoyed them. I'm almost to the end of this one and it has been a real struggle. If I have anything else to read I leave it and return later. All the metaphysical stuff, Jane identifying with someone that died 2000 years ago, is just too far out there and not believable at all. I hope future novels don't follow suit.

    Disappointing plot

    This book may have had a good plot but the more I read, the more it went no where. This is not another book about Eve. This is about 17 year-old Jane who talks and act like a 30 year-old femme fatale and Xena Warrior Princess roled into one teenager.

    Disappointing

    I have read all of I.J. BOOKS, and I have to say that this one is very diappointing. I am in the middle of the book right now, and I will finish it, but after reading the other reviews I have to agree that this one is a little far-fetched, and I hope the others to come will be more like the previous books that she has written.

    Far Fetched from start to finish

    I usually enjoy this authors writing but this book was so out of touch with reality that I couldn't enjoy it at all. Since I make myself finish what I start I finished the book but now that I see her next book is to be more of the same, I will not buy it.
