The characters of The Humanity Project are definitely richly portrayed in their beautifully flawed selves. Thompson made me care about each person, even the bratty teenager I usually loathe. I wanted the absent father to succeed in reaching out to his daughter, I wanted the addict father to survive long enough to say thanks to his son for taking care of him and mostly, I wanted each person to beat what life was throwing at them and come out on top.
Ultimately, I'm happy that I've been given a chance to read this absorbing novel by Jean Thompson. The Humanity Project is full of great, relatable characters that have been dealt bad hands but still press on. I am more inclined now to question less why bad things happen to good people especially when I don't question why the good things happen. I would gladly recommend this book to anyone.****
