I did like this book BUT, the narrator was almost robotic at times, a couple of times sounding like she was reading a Dick and Jane book, so simplisti..Show More »c were the words/sentences. I got past it but it would creep up again in the next chapter so it never completely went away. Sometimes it did feel like you may have missed something and I didn't really find the reasoning of the killer that enthralling. There wasn't much depth there. And everything seemed a little too convienient with certain things. I felt at a point that it started to loose direction and things got a little more convienient and not told real well. I also didn't care too much for the ending. Anti climatic. Overall tho, I didn't shut it off, the story kept my interest, even with all this other stuff I didn't care for. I gave it a borderline 3.
More organized plot, it was a bit to all over the place. T.R Ragen did such a great job with Abducted but lost a lot of steam in this book. Jared one ..Show More »of the main charecters in the first book was barely even a part of this one and when he was it wasn't in a way you would think or enjoy.
A Dark Mind is Book 3 in T. R. Ragen's six book Lizzy Gardner thriller series.It completes my listening to the series. It is a superb thriller as ar..Show More »e the other 5 novels in the series. Kate Rudd does an great job of narration of all six novels.
I highly recommend this entire series.
Thrillers are my genre of choice for fiction while romance novels are just the opposite. I remain impressed that romance writers such as Theresa (T. R.) Ragen, Jessica Ann (J.A.) Redmerski, and Lisa Gardner (who writes romance novels as Alicia Scott) also write great thrillers. I suppose I should also mention Nora Roberts who writes thrillers as J. D Robb. and Sandra Brown who writes romance novels using several pen names, but neither of them write thriller novels of the quality of those of Ragen, Redmerski, or Gardner.
I have enjoyed books 1-4 but found this one to be deplorable to Lizzie.
The entire series Ms. Ragan has had Jared help rebuild Lizzie's hea..Show More »rt, soul..everything and then Ms. Ragan decides to take away?
For me this was a ignorant move for character writing.
I did not enjoy what has happened in this book. Quoting Lizzie "nobody alive knows me". I think a lot of the readers of the series thought they did based on the reviews throughout the series until this book. Apparently Ms. Ragan did not.
One plus is I always enjoy Katie Rudd's narration of Audible books and she had done an awesome job for this series.
I wish book 6 well as I won't be reading it or recommending.
