The characters in this novel are very well constructed; insightful, sharp and consistent, you would easily feel identified with some or parts of them. It has good love stories, good political discussion, good dilemas and dramas. It is so well written that you will feel like taking sides in the most profound issues that this novel brings up. It flows. Not very fan of the ending, but still, no disappointments.
