Anil's Ghost - Michael Ondaatje Interesting in many respects: the prose is easy yet lovely, the topic (forensic medicine with a human rights angle), and the treatment of shifting in dimensions.

But somehow I didn't really like Anil's character. She didn't seem quite real, a trite stereotype of the many do-gooders. Somehow her motivations seemed forced.

While using the same successful and engaging writing style, Ondaatje's Anil doesn't seem quite to make it.
