It never ceases to amaze me how Patterson can go from writing about homocidal psychopaths and then write a beautiful love story ... he really is a wonderfully talented writer. This story is definitely a totally new plot ... one I'm not sure has ever been written about before, and quite ingenius and yet if you stop and think about it ... a wee bit disturbing as well. But you won't be sorry that you read it (I read it in one day) ... Jane and Michael's story will win your heart. It is like all of his other books ... A+!

The story is told from both the perspective of Jane Margaux, the little girl (later turned woman) befriended by an imaginary friend and the imaginary friend himself, named Michael. As a writing style it does help to tell this particular story but although we have both sides to the story it made me feel a little like we didn't get in depth enough.

For this book you do need to leave your sense of realism at the door, and typically I am fine with that but when I finished this book I thought "Well, that was sweet." and that was it. But I got the sense that maybe the writers were trying to make it a little more than that and it didn't quite hit that particular mark. I guess to me it seemed a little rushed, even though the book was 320 pages.

That said, I would recommend it for a very quick light read. It was entertaining. If you are looking for a book with a little more depth to it I would skip it and recommend "The Time Traveler's Wife" by Audrey Niffenegger instead.

Couldn't finish it - this was my second attempt at a James Patterson novel (after "Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas"), so maybe his style just isn't for me. After 100 pages, the tone was just too cheesy and the plot too contrived for me to go on.

Perhaps I am too old for this book, I felt like I was being talked down to throughout the novel. Is it targeted toward the junior high audience and I missed that information somewhere? Perhaps I did.

A simplistic bit of fluff with repeated use of the same simple adjectives. Not very exciting, albeit a quick read.

Jane has only one friend: a handsome, comforting, funny man named Michael. He's perfect. But only she can see him. Michael can't stay forever, though. On Jane's ninth birthday he leaves, promising her that she'll soon forget him. Years later, in her thirties, Janes is just as alone as she was as a child. And despite her own success as a playwright, she is even more trapped by her overbearing mother. Then she meets someone - a handsome, comforting, funny man. He's perfect. His name is Michael...
