REVIEW: My Trip to Adele by R.I. Alyaseer & A.I. Alyaseer

book-review_20170703130741901

First book finished in July!

Also my first contemporary book ever since… ever since forever? You know my preferences are fantasy, and that I rarely pick contemporaries… But I couldn’t get past this one because it features one of my favorite Western artists that is Adele.

My most favorite song from Adele will always be Someone Like You, because it’s too close to me and what happened in my life 5 years ago, and this song always triggers the memories of my past whenever I hear it, so, actually despite being the most favorite song, I try to listen to it as less as possible because I’ve overcome my initial pain and I wouldn’t like to have myself drown in that depression ever again.

Synopsis: An Adele concert held in Verona becomes the focus for an unhappy married couple, a divorced mother and a devoted lover from three different countries and cultures.
This is the story of three flawed but likeable people. First up is Elias, a Moroccan man living in Rome. He discovers that a black magic spell was cast upon him but starts to doubt whether it was the real cause of the break-up between him and his long-lost love Malika. He decides to search for her in the shadows of Marrakesh after eight years of separation.
Nadia, a single mother from Jordan, is battling her ex-husband in the courts and doing all she can to secure freedom for herself and her only son. Her dream is to take her son to see his idol, Adele, live.
Finally, Yaser, a married man living in Las Vegas, realizes that his marriage is crawling all over him like a slow, painful death, so he starts to rebel against his wife. While faith initially brought them together, it is now causing them to drift apart.
These three characters are on a journey to break free of everything that has haunted them, learning harsh truths about fate, religion, courage, desire and guilt along the way.
