Tell Your Friends:


It's Los Angeles in the early seventies, and Stephen Friedman is living the groovy southern California life of a real estate wheeler-dealer. He's making money hand-over-fist and has long ago given up hope of finding the family he'd lost in warn-torn Poland. But when a strange, deceased woman's papers reveal that she possessed a priceless religious relic -- and that she may have been his mother -- Stephen becomes hungry for answers.

His hunger just might kill him. As Stephen frantically pursues his family's lost legacy, someone pursues him -- someone equally obsessed with the prize. Looks like the man most obsessed will gain everything. And the loser will lose it all.

In true Ted Dekker style, Obsessed will leave you positively breathless.

Usually this Tedd Dekker captures your attention and you find it hard to cut the CD off but I found at time during this book I was just ready for it to end.

This was such a dark, evil story. I know the Holocaust must have been awful, but the Evil power was very depressing.

Ted Dekker is at his usual best with the plot twists and unforseen events when a man becomes greedy. The suspense is great with the chacters being fully developed with traditional traits. I would recommend this book to any Christian reader. Those who do not have the faith will have an insight to the what can happen to an ordianary man when he becomes obessed.

Usually I like Ted Dekker's books at least enough to listen all the way through. I can't say that for this one. I found the reader to be so irritating and the beginning to be a bit boring, I didn't even bother to finish disc 1.
