Would you listen to The Madness Underneath again? Why?
I am sure I would listen to it again before the third book comes out. I usually do.
What did you like best about this story?
Well...... I know that is not very helpful but that is all I can say.
What about Nicola Barber’s performance did you like?
I really do enjoy Nicola. I hear samples of some books and I know there is no way I will be able to listen to that person four hours.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
No. The first book I really wanted to know what was going to happen. This one did not draw me in in that way. It didn't develop as fast and there wasn't really anything solved.

Where does The Madness Underneath rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I feel as if The Name of the Star, Madness Underneath, and the Shadow Cabinet (yet to read) could be one novel. There's a beginning, middle, and end, yet at the conclusion of the novels I feel as if I'm still in the middle of the story.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
I'd add more to the research and the ghosts purging forth and causing havoc. I liked this idea, yet it really only happened once. There was so much room to build upon here. I'm curious to see where the next book will go with this.
Have you listened to any of Nicola Barber’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Nicola Barber is one of my favorite narrators. Her vocal range is impressive and engaging. Her interpretation of Boo, is a delight to listen to.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
That ending was a knife to the heart.
Any additional comments?
What the Madness Underneath does so well is Rory must come to terms that her actions don't only effect her alone. It's something we all learn, and Maureen Johnson writes Rory's character in such a way that you feel her pain and yet you aren't annoyed with her.
