This book was really good and would fall in the top half of my books as opposed to the bottom.
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.
OMG the END! I will not say more.
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 $.
I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!
T. R. Ragen's Lizzy Gardner series keeps getting better. It would be difficult to imagine a more evil villain than the one in this book. Abducted, the first of the series, was a mild disappointment, but others are much better. Kate Rudd's narration is stellar.
Books are a big part of my life. Happiness is a beautiful evening on the houseboat with a good book :)
Tried to get into this book but no luck. Dragged and was not believable. Too many characters that were BORING.
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.
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.
Best series... Lizzie and Jared's love story, Hailey's determination and Kaylee's spunky nature kept me hanging on to every word. Moving to book five
Reading allows me to travel through time; to visit the world's unique and stunning places. To become somebody I am not... It is glorious.
I wish these books were longer and featured fewer characters. They do not delve deep enough into the story and they do not feature unique and complex characters. This is book four of six and I still feel as though I barely know Lizzy Gardner and friends. Character development is essential for a complicated and intriguing mystery. We haven't gotten there in these books. They read easily and quickly, but I do not leave the story grieving its end or thinking about the resolution and the future stories of the characters. I want to be challenged.
Kate Rudd continues to do an average job -- Im just not sure if it is the problems within the book or if it is her own issues with reading the story.
The next installment in the Lizzy Gardner series rolls along at a fast pace. This book wraps up some of the stories started in earlier books and throws in a new adventure as well. Overall, I enjoyed the book. It moved right along and the reader did a very good job with the characters.
This is not a work of literature. It sounds more like a TV drama suspense script. The narrator does a great job at trying to make the book sound amazing but she just can't because of how poorly it is written. There are too many plots to follow. Too much of the same repeated detail and not enough story or character development. Although the story is intriguing, a middle schooler could write a better book than this. You get what you paid for. Don't expect much.
"Women with machetes. and they are the good guys."
Narrated really well. Seat of your pants ride. High body count. Where is the next one?
"I'm still unsure if I like it"
I listened through to the end of this but I'm not sure if I enjoyed it or not. I felt like it was much longer than 8hours or so. It didn't keep me engaged much, another one where my mind wandered off.
The narrator was ok. Characterisation via giving them voices was rather lame.
