Not worth waiting for

I got into Killing Eve from the TV show last year and soon after devoured books 1 and 2 by Audible, I couldn't wait for a continuation of the story of the charismatic psychopath and her slightly dorky but ultimately good and talented pursuer. I kept checking the release date every month or so to see if it had somehow been pushed forward in Audible, but no. Eventually the release date was upon us and my pre-order was given to me! ...What I heard in this book was.... unexpected to say the least.

Within 3 chapters I found myself having to pause it every now and then to check I wasn't listening to my normal romantic comedy chick lit books, but no, it was definitely Killing Eve. The story is badly written lesbian erotica in some parts, in others it's just badly worded gross descriptions of occurences with no real plot to keep it hanging together. The book does improve slightly as it goes on, but it's not even in the same ballpark as the first two. To say I'm disappointed is an understatement.

(I should add that the one bright point in this book was the narration. Lucy Paterson did an excellent job with the voices and I was so glad to hear that she'd joined the book after previously doing an excellent job in books 1 and 2 of this series.)

I'd really love to go on more about what little plot there is in this book but I really don't want to give spoilers to the dedicated fans of the series like myself. I still believe that book 4 could be great (if it actually happens!) and like people have done with many tv series who had a bit of a blip over the years we could just pretend that 'Die for Me' didn't happen. I will say that thing I found most irritating about the entire book is that the two main characters appear to have both had personality transplants. Eve is a simpering wimp with zero self control or knowledge of her own personal boundaries, while Villanelle has found her caring side, which, out of the context I've found it in I could almost believe. However, when combined with the other (non) characters and the neat way everything just fit together it was messy and completely unbelievable that two characters that we've gotten to know in the last 2 books would act the way that they did. Eve from 'Die for Me' would fit in better in a high school melodrama rather than a thriller.

Mr Jennings, please find your old characters and return them to their previous personalities. Don't just follow what's happening in the tv show, this feels like what's happened here. Eve and Villanelle deserve to be remembered in a better way than this.

3rd book wrecks the efforts made in the first two

Didn't enjoy the final installment. No deeper reflection, insane plot and felt rushed.

spoilers below

Opportunity for Eve to reflect on what she did at end of last book missed. The fact that she was living with someone with a known history of violence, lying and crazy mood swings didn't really go beyond a high school romance.

Really bad. Only stuck with it to complete series.

Meh, it’s an ending

I found this a bit poor and the opposite of exciting. Bearable is accurate.

Eve in this encounter is a whiny woman (or maybe she is played that way) it was at times super frustrating always crying always upset always just so... weak. Not a fan.
Additionally, at time I got a glimps that eve thought she was better than Oksana.

Basically, it’s an okay ending. If you’re reading this you’ve most likely listens to the other two so you might as well finish it off.

better than the TV series

One of the most griping series of books I have read, it goes into so much detail.
having watched all the series first, it was nice to picture the actors in the story.

Not what I expected

This storyline totally confused me, slightly absurd! A rather strange love story. Hope the TV show fares better

Loved it!

Great 3rd chapter. I've enjoyed the audio books much more than the TV series, although I haven't finished series 3 yet.
Beautifully read, I found it exciting, funny and hugely entertaining.

I loved the book series so much and I’m very upset that it has come to an end. Beautifully written and captivating. There were times you laughed and cried.

review

The first 1/3 of the story is interesting and on par with the previous books. In the second 2/3 I found Eve, to be infuriating and whiney I struggled through the recording. With the final 3/3 was fantastic with it being as interesting as the whole series had been.

Wow, that's good!

A very good ending to a great series. Lots of tension and intrigue. Nothing seems as it is.

Looking forward to listening again.

Lucy Paterson brings this story to life.

Didn't Bother to Finish

Lucy Patterson's performance is great, but the story is awful. It's very different from the other two books in the series and is just nonsensical. I wish I'd listened to the other reviews and not bothered.

Eve's character is so competely different as to be unrecognisable. I understand she's meant to be a fish out of water, but it doesn't explain her complete transformation.

The writing feels sloppy, although it may just be that I disliked it so much that I am searching for problems. Trouble is, I have no desire to go back and re-listen to check if this is actually the case. It feels like lazy writing that is an early draft, not a fleshed out piece ready for publication.

This book has really ruined my perception of the series: all the small things that annoyed me about the other two have really come to the fore.

An anti climax

I enjoyed this series as a whole but this book was definitely the weakest link. Eve’s personality changes overnight. The twist at the end is over-engineered. A disappointing conclusion to what could have been an outstanding series.

Finally!

Is you’re a killing eve / villanelle / Oxana shipper you will adore this book as FINALLY THEY HAVE SEX! so all those who’ve been waiting, it’s worth the wait. Especially the shower scene!!!. Excellent storyline to the book also. Target to be shot etc. but if you’re a shipper this is a must have in your collection! The way villanelle says “pussy” in a Russian accent is adorable! Five stars all the way!

Eve has turned into a sook

I loved the first two however this one has Eve following Villanelle around like a lost puppy, she is to needy. Also the narration was like fingernails down the blackboard.

A Bit of a Let Down!

I enjoyed the previous books better. The series might be fizzling out. Seems to be written in a completely different style.

Captivating conclusion to Killing Eve

Beautifully written and voiced. Highly recommend the Killing Eve trilogy, especially this third and final volume.
Killing Eve: Die for Me is a captivating conclusion that upholds the integrity of the intriguing character-development that occurred throughout the series. Brilliant read/listen.
