The story seemed interesting in the very beginning, but later turned into a boring piece. Elias, Jordan and Nadia were, somehow, interesting characters, but Nadia's character was worth catching the interest of the readers. She was a bold, courageous and practical character. Her efforts for her identity and independence make her prominent and leading character in the story. :x :lol: :shock:

Post by Ssinghal »

I did not really like any of the characters, however, each had their good and bad qualities. The story of Elias was too unrealistic and unrelatable, however, it had the true love factor, which made it interesting. Nadia was too negative and pessimistic, however, her love and dedication towards her son are commendable; Yasser was too immature, however, he was responsible enough to not go for a divorce that would have shattered his kids emotionally and mentally.
Overall, each character had their own ups and downs, and I did not particularly enjoy any one character.

I agree with you. However, I found Nadia the most relatable.

I really liked the character of Nadia; especially her strength and courage. I seem to be unique in also liking Elias's character. He was rather unusual but interesting nonetheless.

My favorite character in the story is Nadia because she is a very tough woman. I admired her strong personality and belief. She is a good example for women especially for those who got separated from their husband and had a child.

I agree. Nadia has her admirable traits but at times, irritating. Irritating because of her weird decisions. The authors are successful in giving her these characteristics which caught our interest.

My favorite character was Elias. Regardless of his not so realistic story, he has his morals, sticks to them and keeps his promise. Nadia's strong character was attractive but she shouldn't have reported the ex when he had so much control over her plans. Not to mention that I really didn't like how she first decided to get on the plane without Waleed. :(

Nadia was tough I liked that personality in her and not allowing herself or her son to settle for any less but I loved Taser more he was a wife's pleaser despite his wife's skeptical behavior towards him
