Which character do you most relate to or see yourself in, and why? How do you feel about it?

Until i move backwards in time i am uncertain at this time. Although, i have a soft spot for Viv. However, as characters grow, so will my appreciation,or lack of, grow.

I started the second section and found out some more about Mr. Mundy. Mr. Mundy is a prison guard overseeing Fraser and Duncan. I relate to him because I have a law enforcement background and spend 10 years working in a jail. Plus the has physical problems in the first section. I also have physical problems.

Too early for me to tell at this point! I'm very interested in Kay, though. Looking forward to reading her story more as I go...

I was identifying with Viv in 1947, but what happened to her in 1944 never happened to me, so......

Having read 1947 and the first 3 chapters of 1944 I think Viv is the one I relate to the most. I'm a little horrified at the things she goes through to meet up with Reggie but at that age and in the middle of a war I probably wouldn't have thought anything of it.

I really find Kay someone I can relate to. Maybe it's her rescue job and practical view of things, even while being in crazy love.

I don't find any of the characters particularly like me, but I see many community archetypes in the portraits Waters paints in the first section of the book. I know these people, even if I am not portrayed here myself.
