The book is very interesting. The first thing which drove me to read the book was the cover of the book. Actually, the author did it best to design it interestingly of the highest standard. I'm really impressed by the characters of Nadia and I have so many things that I can describe about her. I personally recommend the as one of the best than ever.

The great review illustrates how powerful music is in expressing individual feelings. Through lyrics characters in the book were able to communicate messages more effectively than it would have been in normal conversations.

Have you ever thought of how tasteless and desperate such
a marriage is? My Trip to Adele by R.I.
Alyaseer and A.I. Alyaseer has it all. This is
a fictional novel involving three different
protagonists. The storyline setting involves
four different cities: Rome (Italy), Las Vegas
(USA), Marrakesh (Morocco) and Amman
(Jordan). It's the first novel by the coauthors
published in the year 2016.
The novel is about love and its role in
securing marriages. The three protagonists
share one characteristic; they are fans of
Adele. They have a plan to attend Adele's
concert in Verona, Italy. The novel open up
with description of Elias' feelings about his
love, Malika, whom he had fallen in love with
8 years earlier. Her memories had remained
intact in his mind. This has made him to feel
a nostalgia while in Rome, not because he
love his people, but to trace Malika's
whereabout. He travels back to his home city,
Marrakesh , to dispel the black magic that
has become a stumbling block in their
relationship after learning it from a
fortuneteller.
On the other hand, Yaser, a resident of Las
Vegas city is also suffocating in his eight
years old marriage. He's just tolerating their
relationship for the sake of his kids. He has
even organized to attend Adele's concert
together with his wife just to revive the taste
of their marriage. Nadia, who is our last
protagonists in this novel is a resident of
Amman, Jordan. She is divorced and has
been living a free life for now eight years.
She blames her ex-husband for having
mistreated her during their matrimonial life.
She is also very careful not to loose her
dignity. However she has a son, whom
despite the separation, she is trying to make
happy by allowing him to visit his father over
the weekends.
R.I. Alyaseer and A.I. Alyaseer address the
fact that love knows no distance neither do it
take time into consideration. It's based on
sweet memories and qualities that draws the
lovers together. Marriage is not left out in
this scenario. No marriage can thrive in
absence of love and sweet memories to
steam it up when it goes cold. Humiliation,
unfaithfulness and endless quarrels remains
the major divorce catalysts. The coauthors
have also pointed out that most women just
tolerate their husbands' mistreatments for the
sake of their kids, however, this is not much
necessary as the kids can still remain happy
even in a divorced marriage at their parents'
own volition. Nadia is able to prove this by
allowing her son visit his father during
weekends just to make him happy.
While reading this novel, I felt impressed with
Nadia, whom despite being a woman, has
stood for her rights and careful not to be
mistreated or humiliated in any way by
anybody. As a responsible mother, she is
very ready to make her son happy to a tune
of arranging a trip with him to attend Adele's
concert even though, her ex-husband finally
scatters her plans. However, I also felt
annoyed at some point by the character,
Kanza Malawi who involved her 13 years old
daughter, Malika in prostitution despite how
shameful the job was.
The novel is such humorous and flavoured
with stanzas of Adele's songs which could
match the situation and feeling of the
characters at each and every end of a
chapter. The book is well edited except only
one case of spelling error, where the word
"und" was used instead of "and". Contents
section was also missing. However these did
not detract the the storyline of this novel. It is
therefore very easy for me to rate this book 4
out of 4 stars .
I recommend this book to those who like
reading love literatures. Those who are
allergic to love literature and non-fans of
Adele may not enjoy this book. I will not
recommend this book to children, because
they have nothing to do with love and
marriage affairs. Moreover, Elias' stay with
Malika is detailed to an extent not suitable
for a child.

This review is extremely helpful! I was looking for a book to read that is different than many that I've read. Your explanation of the book following people of different lives and backgrounds all sharing a common interest is exactly what I was looking for. It is refreshing to see a book have an uncommon theme.

With a 4 out of 4 review, I am very eager to read this book! I can wait to be captivated by each character and their journey. Really appreciate how detailed your review is! Thanks!

I was generally confused at first as to wat type of book it was with an unusual title.…but as I read further I realized real creative writing... Using the popular singer as a link to different people and places facing different yet similar circumstances... In all I actually enjoyed reading it...quite inspiring :tiphat:

After reading this, I think I might have to pick this one out to review just so I can find out for myself how these the authors weaved Adele’s songs into the lives of these colorful characters. Thank you for this wonderful review!
