1.0 out of 5 stars Morally Bankrupt, 11 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Open Minds (Mindjack Series Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
** Mild Spoilers **

The main character, Kira, seems to immediately grasp the ethical minefield her new abilities raise, spending the first few chapters bemoaning the need to even lie to her friends and family. She rightly judges Simon to be dangerous and pushy, uncomfortable with his mood swings, manipulation and apparent lack of morals. He revels in his ability to control others, using it to play with people, steal (as in a sports car), and even wants Kira to force two people to start making out (the fact that he was lobbying for sexual assault is one of the few things that strangely doesn't upset Kira). Yet within a couple of conversations, and even while thinking how much she doesn't trust him (or particularly like him or his 'crew'), Kira decides they should be boyfriend and girlfriend, further twisting the knife into the person she actually seems to love.

I got pretty disgusted with this novel early on, and didn't manage to get further than a third in before giving it up as too annoying to finish. In some ways I hope it turned out that Simon was actually influencing Kira into the trail of ridiculous decisions she makes, but that twist still wouldn't make this a good book to read.
