I think Kelly was more relatable to me, she had a solid background which centered her. She was not afraid of Sliver or of asking the difficult questions.

It's true that even though she was in completely unfamiliar circumstances she wasn't afraid to stick up for herself. Thank you for your comments!

Out of the 3 characters you mentioned, I guess I'd be closer to Kelly considering she is a victim of the circumstances. I wish I'd be closer to Rex since he managed to bypass his programming, but I'm not sure I'd be able to have his strength. :) Out of the entire book, I'd probably be professor James Duchovney and teach interpretive history to a hopefully much more attentive class of students. :)

Ha, ha! Great comments and a good choice in Duchovney! Thank you.

I think I related more to Kelly than anyone. I'm just as out of my element in life as she is. However, I will have more time to work out my place in this world.

Wow, I can see that many people here identify with Kelly too. I think that the whole plot took a different turn when she entered into the scene.

I liked Agent Silver the most because he was a fighter. Even though he had the decks stacked against him, I think he managed to come out on top, which greatly endeared him to me.

Yes, perseverance is usually an endearing quality don't you think?

I can identify with Kelly, mainly because she is very innocent and she plays a key role to the whole story.

I hadn't considered her innocence as being crucial to the story, I think you are correct! Thank you for commenting!
