Controlling Personality

The PageThe Page by M. Jonathan Lee
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Wow, Michael, the main character, is a douche. But he's one that you slowly begin to understand. The amount of sympathy felt for the other characters is really well done. Feelings of sympathy for Jane especially are prominent.

What I guess I'm trying to say is that, the characters are deep, they're all broken people with their own motivations and character flaws, and that is awesome. the only reason for a non-5 star review is that the ending felt rushed and incomplete. I want to know about the books, and what Jane decides to do. Equally I want to know why Claire is so fascinated with Michael. It's a great story, but I think Lee lost track of where he wanted to go.

This book had a profound effect on my mental state, making me feel more miserable than I have in a while. That I would say is how you can tell a book is engaging, if it makes you feel, with and for the characters involved.
