I see most of us liked Sarah the best.

Sergei was my favourite character. He had just suffered the loss of his father and had to put up with a lot of bad feeling from Myra, and he kept his cool. He eventually won Myra round by remaining quite calm. Good man!

I loved Sarah's change in character when she was in her 'dream'. It was interesting to see how the author portrayed the maturity levels to be so contrasting for the same person in the two different time periods.

I can see you're trying to be empathic here, not so? I believe he already knew his father was going to die, and to some extent, he was prepared for it. What do you observe?

Sarah is my favorite character in the book. She is a very strong girl. She is a very good visionary. The stories she told in the book are quite interesting.
Live Life to the Fullest and Enjoy Reading!!

Sarah undoubtedly was my best character. Her qualities into the story makes it more live. The bravely in her adds more point into the taste.

William was my favorite. I feel like the author put a lot of thought into this character.
It also helps that he's hilarious.

I thought she was unnecessarily belligerent with Sergei.

Absolutely! The advice he gave Tom about dealing with Sarah was great.

I agree. I didn't like her attitude.
