Review from OnlineBookClub.org
While reading McDowell, I really enjoyed the vivid characters and the complex questions that the author brings up throughout the story about what it means to be human. For example, on pages 215-216: “It’s no good if people seek success and money only for their own satisfaction and self-worth. People content in themselves learn to give selflessly, without concern for personal gain, to learn the joy of being human. How many times a day do we do things for others that are really for our own pleasure and advancement?” It is quotes like this that the characters ponder over throughout McDowell that really kept me wanting to read more. Another aspect of this book that I really enjoyed was how complex the author made his characters, making them seem relatable and interesting at the same time.
