I wish the author would stick with the genre without all the emotional fluff added in as its really not done very well. Eg: Lizzy is lamenting about all the bad things that are happening to her but her apparently dying fiancé doesn’t rate a mention. Really?? And then the main storyline has no conclusion, the murderer apparently gets to walk free. I feel this book has kind of lost the plot, it’s a bit all over the place. What is done exceptionally well however is the narration, she’s the best female narrator I’ve listened to so far & I’ll definitely seek out other audio books narrated by Kate Rudd.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes. This is a pretty good easy book to listen to. Fast paced with multiple concurrent stories.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Almost Dead?
In the beginning of the book you find out what happened to Jarred (I won't spoil this) but it left me wondering throughout the book how it would conclude.
What about Kate Rudd’s performance did you like?
Kate Rudd has read all of the Lizzy Gardner books and for me anyway she is her voice. I think she did a fine job.
Any additional comments?
I thought this was very good and suspenseful. I like that the pace was consistent through out the book. I think I liked the last book a little better but that might be because this one was a little sad at times. I think I can see where the author is going with the next story or possibly the one after and am curious to find out if I'm right. I think Lizzy is going to get involved with the detective she always seems to butt heads with but I guess I'll have to wait to find out. I also liked that Haley and Kitally's characters were developed even more and that they are developing their own story lines. Certainly worth the price! I recommend this one.

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 heart, 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.

Enjoyed everyone of these on the long drives up and down the UK. Must be read in order or you will become confused. Excellent narrator as well
I'm really sorry to have to say that I was bored to tears with this book.
I really don't know what else to write to be honest as I don't like to be harsh.
