Your Most Unforgettable Character

Post by Miriam Molina » 13 Aug 2017, 20:19

For me, the most unforgettable character and the one most worthy of emulation is
Uncle Alan. He is simple, loyal, and loving. Max turned out well with his guidance.

Who is yours?

I also admire the characterization given to uncle Alan. He was able to act as dad and mom for Max which paid out.

The most unforgettable character to me is probably Paco. He's not unforgettable in a good way though. I'm just amazed how corrupt people can be.

Sarah. She acted rather selfless in the beginning but was there for Max's Uncle Alan in the end.
Life without a good book is something the CatInTheHat cannot imagine.


Grateful to get the opportunity to explore new books with those in the OBC.

I agree. I was disappointed we didn't get more info about her.

I agree with Darakhshan Nazir that Uncle Alan was a GREAT character! He did not speak much but what he said meant so much.
I also liked Sofía a lot ... would not mind meeting her one day ... :)

Funny how many of us find the secondary characters more memorable.

This is an evidence that the secondary characters play an important role in the story. I also admire Sarah for helping uncle Alan even if her relationship with Max ended bitterly.

well! It's definitely gotta be Alan what with his guidance and encouragement which made the Hero, Max.

I was also waiting for what will be the development of Sarah's role in the story but I was disappointed when I finished the story without any information about her or what happened to her.

We can speculate that she still cared for Max. After all, they were together for a lot of years and almost got married. The Expansion, Part 2, anyone?

Characters of Nadia and maryam in "my Trip to Adele" are most memorable characters for me. Their struggle to secure their families is remarkable.

Hi, Sarah Tariq! It seems that those women in My Trip to Adele really impressed you. We'd like to know whether anybody in The Expansion made a similar impact.
