My favourite Character is Dr Kinney Peter. I think he was selfless and think beyond the status quo but unfortunately, his section did not go further than I thought it should.

I wasn't crazy about any of the characters. This story seems to be all about plot and action; the characters just do whatever they must to keep the plot moving along. But if I absolutely had to pick one, it would be Sharon. I like her attitude. :D

Every characters has its own role in the story, but I like Steve. His bravery and smartness impresses me. My vote to Steve.

I felt like there were so many characters in this book it was hard to connect to a certain one. But I did really like Steve.

I liked Steve the best because at first, I did not know that he was an undercover CIA agent. He really played the American tourist well and caught on to Su-jin not telling the truth about being a native Californian. He also found the hidden lab first. The story showed that though Steve was a professional, he was also human and made several mistakes letting Sharon and Agatha wrestle him down and being a bit careless on his moped and wrecking it.

I liked Kim Jung Love the best. He showed exceptional intrepidity in putting the error in the code. Later he shows resourcefulness in escaping. I wish the character were fleshed out a bit more.

Dr. Kinney Peter was a barely explored character despite his heroic and selfless personality. He is an interesting and unique choice for favorite character.

I also had trouble connecting with any of the characters since they all felt so flat. If I had to choose though, Steve would be my choice. As soon as his character was revealed I remember thinking to myself "Finally, someone who sounds and acts like an actual human being instead of a plot puppet." I didn't appreciate how short lived that was though, since as soon as he is introduced to the other characters he immediately seems to get regulated to the butt of everyone's jokes. Also, unlike others, I honestly hated his interactions with Sharon. I felt they dragged his character down into cliche town and devolved him from the interesting character he was into this 2 dimensional character that would do his job, but was going to flirt with this woman he barely knows and has no reason to like except for the fact that this was supposedly a romance novel.

I really struggled to connect to any of the characters. I don’t think this book really appealed to me. I was hoping this would be better than the last one, and it wasn’t. I think the author could have gone a little farther with character development.
Everything happens for a reason...

I was generally nonplussed by the character development in the story. Part of this, I think, is a problem because I used an audiobook instead of a text, and therefore I remember few details of the characters. However, they seemed underdeveloped. Above, someone mentioned too much giggling. In another strand, there was a post talking about how the married couple hardly seemed to know each other. There didn't need t be huge character development to move the story along, but the lack of developed characters is what mostly led me to give the book three stars instead of four.
I agree. To me, the characters often seemed very juvenile. They didn't behave like mature adults. I was amazed that they got anything done with as much time as they spent flirting.

I liked the scientist Kim Jung Lo. He was courageous and compassionate.

I didn't have a favourite character. I liked Steve and Sharon a little bit more than the others though.

The scientistKim Jung Lo as a choice for favorite character is beyond unique and interesting. I enjoyed how well researched and understandable the scientific concepts were.

I think Kelly would be my first favorite character for her courage and well balanced female mannerism, Next comes Steve and followed by Sharon and Tom. I also liked Sharon for her ability to put in best of her for the moment and save the day.
life is only knowing the unknown, we can do this by reading books easily- I believe this is my own quote. If someone quoted this before I am glad to know.

Hey :D I personally found Kelly as the most appealing character to me. I think she is a strong woman and at times I found her being blunt.
