Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: The narrator’s problem is solved; he can marry Jen and Jen and Tom can stay friends. Chillingly, the mind control that Tom feared turns out to be real.

Con: The ending falls a bit flat because the author belabors the point long after we’ve gotten it.
