This story takes place in a unnamed South American country and VIPs are attending a fancy party at the Vice President's home â all attendees are from different countries and one of them has brought a translator. Terrorists unexpectedly break into the home and take the people hostage. Surprisingly, true friendships bond and love forms. I liked the differences in the language, class, and culture, and how the hostages and terrorists become close in spite of that. The ending sort of blew me away, but the lives of these people living together up until that, was beautiful. Great read!
