Publisher's Summary

From devoted fan to celebrity stalker: The Crazy One is the most unique stalker novel you'll listen to this year. 

Joel Ruskin is a B-list celebrity barely famous enough to warrant extra security. Which is why Lucy has no trouble tracking him down on social media and following him to a secluded mountain town. Nothing will stop her from turning her fantasies of Joel into reality. Not even Joel’s pesky new girlfriend can get in her way. The power of Lucy’s mind is unstoppable as she resolves to finally be part of Joel's life and exterminate the other woman. 

Rebecca Markus’ sophomore stalker-suspense novel allows listeners to witness a unique unraveling of the human psyche that will leave you questioning your own reality.

Crazy!

Lucy doesn’t live in the real world. In fact, she’s annoyed when she comes out of her fantasies and looks at her life. The people around her don’t know what to think. Lucy insists she has a boyfriend, but no one has ever seen him. To Lucy, reality and her reality are two very different things.

I really loved the way the author went about showing Lucy’s madness, showing what depths her brain was willing to go. At the same time, it wasn’t confusing because the author added glimpses of what Lucy’s life was really like. The escalating crazy behavior was spot on.

The narration flowed well with the story.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Weirdly sympathetic stalker

I thought the overall story was good, but what really surprised me was how the narrator made the main character seem like two different people. When you see the character through others’ eyes, you see what she’s really like, but when the narrative switches to first person, she becomes confident and sympathetic and you almost believe she’s doing nothing wrong.

I was given a promo copy of this book so that I could review it.

I enjoyed this book!

This was an interesting read/listen. The book began by getting your sympathy for this poor lady who appears a bit unhinged. Then it takes you on a roller coaster ride of obsession. I didn't want to stop listening! I recommend this book for anyone who likes horror/mysteries!

Still waiting ...

... for the shoe to drop. I listened to this complete book and while parts were interesting, I was expecting a big twist. It never happened. Otherwise, a good book - but I need at least one twist to make it more enjoyable and give it more stars.
