Topic: 2. If there is a trait each character would share, for example, from Kevin to Douglas to Ana, and even involving Russell in the beginning of the book, what would it be? Can this be a theme/lesson to the reader?

"2. I believe each character has a missing component that they are seeking to find. The trait more generally, could be labelled from insecurity to plain dissatisfaction per say. In Douglas's case, he finally feels that he has a purpose when he helps volunteers out after the crash. In Kevin's case, he is always in need of comfort, no matter what the situation is that might make him uncomfortable in any way. In Ana's, she grieves for her loved one. And as for Russell from what I know of, he also wanted to just talk to someone on the plane ride so he communicated with the cellist.

This can be transformed into an even broader theme that correlates with the novel, that no matter how far someone goes/what they have been through, nothing will be perfect and there will always be that missing component but you learn to deal with it/accept it in the end." (Amer Macedonci)
