Compare two of the characters in this book. Tariq - Noor's brother. In the Prince's army. Murderer. Aamir - Noor's father. Very well read. He was a man of vision. He was loving and compassionate.
Consider the main character: what does he or she believe in? He believes in freedom. He fights to help people. He fought to save Wali. He fought to try and save Noor
Did this book remind you of anything that has happened to you? I've never been to a place like this, nor do I ever intend to go.
