My Review:
I have to say that I was very disappointed in this book.  First, it took me a very long time to get into it.  I was a little bored from the beginning.  I knew going into it that this was going to be a pretty predictable story and it was.  To start I was drawn to Jane Margaux and relationship with her imaginary friend and her predictable boring adult life and relationship with her mother.  Once her imaginary friend Micheal reenters her life is where I felt the plot and story began to fall apart.  It felt like a rushed end to the story without much thought to what was going on.  I feel like I expected more from James Patterson.  While I am not sure that I have read any of his previous books I have heard great things about him and I just feel disappointed in this story.  I feel like he put his name on the book for publicity for the other writer.  So with that being said, I give this book 2 1/2 stars.  It would be a good read if you just wanted something to pass the time.
