Hello:

I read a book's comment from amazon:
This book was a gripping ride of highs and lows that had me all kinds of crazy and I ate it up completely.

"eat it up" = eat it completely
"eat it up completely" = eat it VERY completely

So "completely" is not redundant here. Am I correct?

Thank you.

    He is emphasizing how much he was engrossed in the book and that he enjoyed it thoroughly.
    It is not a redundancy.
