    "Best in the series! GREAT CLIFFHANGER!!!!"
    Where does Obsessed rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book was really good and would fall in the top half of my books as opposed to the bottom.


    Which character – as performed by Kate Rudd – was your favorite?

    I thought Kate Rudd did a fine job narrating. Although sometimes a little whiney, I can picture the character she is performing being the same.


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

    OMG the END! I will not say more.


    Any additional comments?

    I think this was the best in the Lizzy Gardner series. Great plot, characters fleshed out, backgrounds filled in and a really twisted seriel killer who is OBSESSED. If you listened to the first 3 in the series and liked them, then there is no reason to even hesitate for a moment. This is certainly worth the $.

    "Amazing story with a cliffhanger!"
    What does Kate Rudd bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Kate Rudd is the narrator for this book and has read for the first three books in this series as well. She is an excellent narrator! I LOVE HER! She just has that kind of voice that records very well. She does the voices of each character in unique way that lets you know she has talent! I especially like her male voices, she doesn't try to just go in a lower register, she gives them a normal pitched but differential tone. Seth's character was phenomenal! That dude is so creepy and her interpretation of his voice with the tongue click he does was scary good! I truly enjoyed Kate's performance and cross your fingers and toes she is never replaced in the middle of this series because I LOVE HER! I give Kate 5 Stars, you are awesome Kate!

    Obsessed picks up sometime after A Dark Mind, with Lizzy and her band of merry women having grown apart. Lizzy and Jared are planning their wedding that is coming up in December, and she has asked Jessica, Haley, and Katalie to be her brides maids! Haley has gone deeper into her obsession with finding Brian, the man that murdered her mother, and Jessica has been accepted into the FBI Academy. Oh and Katalie wants to work for Lizzy, lol...

    True to form, Lizzy spreads herself thin with all that is going on in her life. Planning a wedding, dealing with her father dying of cancer, conducting interviews for an assistant, and now taking on a case from a radio psychologist that has a stalker, and looking for a dead-beat dad. Man I'm tired and I just listened to it! So Haley has really gone downhill since her mother's death. Regretful that she didn't kill the bastard when she had the chance, Haley is on a mission to find Brian and kill him once and for all! She has cut herself off from her only friends Lizzy and Jessica, and she looks like road kill. To keep her going, Lizzy still gives her cases from time to time, and hands off the dead-beat dad case to her, as well as a mutt she witnessed get hit by a car on her way to Haley's! Haley recruits Katalie for the research/hacking parts and Katalie begs Haley to talk to Lizzy for her about an official job.

    Lizzy takes on the stalker situation with radio host Madeline Blair, and has her work cut out for her with a jerk of a detective on the case, and Madeline not telling Lizzy or the police everything. Jessica is on a her own mission and seeks out help from Haley with trying to find who killed a 12-year-old girl whom she is close by one person removed with. The "person" is most likely a gang related individual and Jessica knows Haley would get farther then she would in gathering the intel. Jessica and Haley haven't talked or seen each other in two years, so the reunion was awkward to say the least.

    In this book we find out more about Katalie and even grow to like her. Her character wasn't unlikeable, just unknown. I really like the fact that she is the closest thing Haley will have to a best friend, because Katalie really seems to care about her. Tommy is still around and helps out when he can. I was really hoping Tommy and Haley would hook up but it doesn't seem like that will ever happen. The plot, sub-plot, and twist in the story were excellent! I enjoyed the ride through the investigations, Haley's manhunt, and the shocking turn of events that happen in the story! Just to warn you now, there is a cliffhanger! I could not believe it even when it was going down. My brain wasn't comprehending what it was reading until five minutes later. I LOVE THE C*&@ OUT OF THIS SERIES, AND CAN'T WAIT TO LISTEN TO THE NEXT ONE!!

    "I'm Obsessed with this series!"

    Radio personality psychiatrist, Madeline Blair's, ratings are slipping. In a desperate attempt to draw attention to her show, she has her audience believing that she is the target of a stalker. But one listener takes her seriously - he thinks he has to protect Maddy. When the listener finds out Maddy has been lying to her listeners, his focus changes from protecting to teaching her a lesson. He becomes obsessed in his relentless pursuit.

    "Pretty good!"

    This one was not my favorite and mainly because I did not like how it ended. Some times it drives me crazy when the characters do stupid things and its like yeah right! The overall story was interesting but not as good as the past ones. Looking forward to the next book but not the sadness that I have heard about. Have to keep going though because her books are good and you can't stop listening.

    Kate could narrate the dictionary and it would be entertaining. the book was OK but she has too many storylines going on at the same time that have nothing to do with each other makes an adhd very distracted.

    "easy listen"
    Where does Obsessed rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    There are definitely better books. It's an easy listen.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I wouldn't say the edge of my seat, but I wanted to find out what happened.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I can't say there was a favorite.


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

    Yeah, the ending is pretty shocking.


    Any additional comments?

    Kate Rudd gets better every book. Her robotic narration from the first two of the series has tapered off.

    "Wow!"

    T.R. Ragan has done it again! Kate Rudd once again did a flawless job in bringing the characters to life. If you're a fan of this series you won't be disappointed. If you are new to this series read the books in order! I am anxiously waiting for the next book in this series.

    "Lizzy Gardner does not disappoint!"

    Another great Lizzy Gardner book. I have really learned to love these novels. The combination of Ragan and Rudd is a pretty great one. The continuation of the development of the characters, both main and supporting is very well done, and Lizzy especially is very endearing. The storylines are not always the most believable, and the author does take a few liberties. That is the only thing that keeps me from giving these books 5 star ratings. Other than that, they are great!
