really liked it

My Trip to Adele by R.I. and A.I. Alyaseer is definitely a different read than what I'm used to . I had read some great reviews on this book and was really excited to read it. My mom is a huge Adele fan and so the title really caught my attention! This story is about three different people from different cultures whose lives seem to be falling apart. They all have different stories yet all three have this admiration and love for Adele. All three of these characters have their individual flaws but are also very likable and relatable. They each seem to be going through different scenarios in life that many readers can relate to. First you have Elias, who is going through regrets of losing a long-lost love and making the effort to search for her. Next you have Nadia who is a single mother battling issues with the ex. Lastly, there is Yaser, who decides to rebel against his wife and the marriage after his efforts to repair their marriage goes unnoticed and non-reciprocated. All three of their stories are moving, which was what I liked about this book.

It was easy to feel for these characters and to cheer them on along their journeys. Each story is different yet similar in how they all three want to escape from what haunts them. They grow on their journeys and learn the hard truths about themselves. The events in their lives challenge them and push them to question their own beliefs, which is something most people find themselves at some point in their lives going through. I also noticed that the mess in their lives cause them to work hard to keep an appearance of peace and acceptance.

As much as I enjoyed the characters and their individual stories, this book was hard for me to read. I rated this book a 4 out of 5 stars. I really liked the characters and how each character had such different stories yet experienced most of the same emotions and growth. This reminded me that we all go through pain, regret and moments of tremendous growth. However, having three characters with such detailed lives and experiences, made it hard to keep up with. I found myself many times having to go back and reread something so that I could make sure I was on the right track. For me, there just wasn’t a smooth flow in this book. I did however, enjoy the characters and reading about their individual stories.

The characters are interesting and their individual story lines are relatable. If you are an Adele fan, you will probably enjoy this book.
