obsessed


obsessed
adjective /əbˈsɛst/
Intensely preoccupied or a given topic or emotion; driven by a specified obsession.

What was starting to unsettle him, to frighten him, was the idea that Merry was less horrified now than curious, and soon he himself became obsessed, though not, like her, by the self-immolators in Vietnam but by the change of demeanor of his eleven-year-old.
