Mr. Rubinstein used a lot of medical/legal terminology but told what each meant. Conrad was a tad to unbelievable. Thought for awhile that I was reading a science fiction book. Adrian, Megan and Marlee are quite believeable and easy to connect with, the later connection between Adrian and Marlee a bit over the top.
The story as a whole was good and definitely kept my interest. There was enough action and mystery to keep you wondering, although it was easy to figure out who the stalker was, you were left trying to figure out the why until the end of the book, which is good. Not everything should be given right out.
I for one will read another of Mark Rubinstein's books. Actually looking into getting his other book Mad Dog House.
I'd recommend this book to anyone who enjoys romantic suspense novels. I don't think this fits as a psychological thriller as much as a romantic suspense book
Adrian and Megan are likable characters, but they are somewhat underdeveloped. Their romance is rushed and a little too perfect. The dialogue between them is sometimes stilted and borders on being too sweet. While a few of the coincidences are a little difficult to believe, they are necessary for plot development.
Megan and Adrian's relationship is still in the beginning stages when a person from Megan's past reappears, putting them jeopardy. It is at this point in the story that the focus of Love Gone Mad shifts from Megan and Adrian to the man responsible stalking for them. I found the ensuing court case and insight into the perpetrator's mental state quite fascinating. There are some very interesting and thought-provoking points about the legal system and the not guilty by reason of insanity defense presented and I have a much clearer understanding of what this defense entails.
Mr. Rubinstein's writing is quite descriptive but too many extraneous and unnecessary details make the first half of the novel slow moving. However the pace of the story really picks up during the last half of Love Gone Mad. Mr. Rubinstein's expertise and ease with the subject matter is apparent and the writing becomes much crisper and more compelling. His explanation of the psychological aspects of the storyline is in layman's terms and easy to understand.
Mark Rubinstein's Love Gone Mad is an entertaining novel with a unique plot. There are some surprising plot twists that I did not see coming and I thought the novel's ending was brilliantly executed.Read more ›
In the middle of this muddled mess, the author decides to give the reader a lesson in the legal ramifications of insanity pleas, and in the process introduces more random characters described in far too much detail.
The only thing keeping me from a one-star review is the final few pages are kind of exciting, culminating in a fairly satisfying ending. But not sure it's worth it to get there.

No stars!!!! Too much romance. Describing how beautiful the characters are once was enough. By second chapter I had enough of the pretty people. Read morePublished 28 days ago by rosemary oc
