Insofar as the word 'should' even has meaning, then we must say that the past is exactly as it should be, everything that happened should have happened, and everything that should happen will happen

I'm deeply drawn to stories that showcase resilience and determination, featuring heroes who persevere against formidable challenges and navigate through life's trials. Master`s relentless pursuit of meaningful change deeply impressed me. His vulnerability in facing mistakes lends him a profound humanity, making the narrative all the more compelling. In essence, it's his tenacity and the bravery he exhibits in candidly sharing his journey that I admire most. His story is a testament to the power of perseverance, and I wholeheartedly celebrate his honesty and openness about his experiences.

I loved Master's determination to beat all odds in all sectors. First, there was self-discovery and the courage to convert to Christianity. The was he resonated with Jesus Christ was quite moving.

In addition, I like how it takes someone else's journey to make us appreciate freedom. Whether it's freedom of speech or gender equality, chasing and ultimately living the American Dream should not be taken lightly.

Ali's experiences changed my perspective about life and the good things we take for granted. Further, his valor to push his way through in a foreign land and establish himself in society puts a big smile on my face.

I liked Ali's open-minded resilience in adapting to his new life in the United States after his young years in Pakistan. But most of all, I was impressed by his early childhood attempt to rescue his dying dog. As an animal rescuer, I instantly took to Ali and started to adore him for his empathy, kindness, and determination!

What I liked most about this book is how well it explains the plight of an immigrant trying to survive in the U.S. and pursue his American dream to flourish in a free environment. Anyone can put themselves in the author's shoes and experience the joys and sorrows of life. I could identify and connect with the author's experiences most of the time in the book.

Also, I loved how the author's work revives the ancient greatness and inherent values of American culture and tradition.
