I don’t know how to start talking about a book which I went through faster than a cup of coffee. This is the type of literature which has the power to redifine humanity and remould the world.
#theguywiththebookreview presents Sea Prayer by @khosseini
I was deeply moved by The Kite Runner and later absolutely shattered by A thousand Splendid Suns. When I heard about this book I thought the primary goal of it was to tell the story of Alan Kurdi, the little Syrian child whose body was washed ashore while he and his family were trying to seek refuge in Europe. Their boat had capsized and Alan along with his dear mother and brother lost their lives. The only one who survived was Alan’s father. But I was wrong, it’s not only about Alan.
Beautifully wed with enchanting illustrations, this fictional take on Alan is heartwrenching and its effects linger for days. I wasn’t able to sleep properly the night I read it and I still get upset when I think about it. I’m writing this review after atleast a month since I failed to write it the last 2 times I tried.
This book is linked to UNHCR @refugees and all proceeds from it go towards it and The Khaled Hosseini Foundation.
I doubt that @khosseini will read this review, but if you do, Sir, I salute you for what you have done to highlight once again poor Alan’s fate and many other kids and families who risk their lives just to be able to breath, eat and sleep.
