“All I can do is Pray, Inshallan”
-Sea Prayer, Khaled Hosseini
About Sea Prayer:
Sea Prayer was inspired by the story of Alan Kurdi, the three-year-old Syrian refugee who drowned in the Mediterranean Sea trying to reach safety in Europe in September 2015.
In the year after Alan Kurdi’s death, 4,176 others died or went missing attempting similar journeys.
This book is dedicated to the thousands of refugees who have perished at sea fleeing war and persecution.
Sea Prayer : Review
No doubt, this book is based on a tragedy this whole world cannot deny being a brutal and unthinkable situation. The worse scenario in the entire history. A minute of silence for those people who could have made it through but couldn’t. The people who could have a great life, but were taken all there rights away. This is why I wanted to read more about their story. The fact is a non-fiction lover as I am, I expected Hosseini to shatter me to pieces.
This book is a short graphic novel which depicts the importance of life before ISIS took over and the situation which they went through. The war made the place unlivable.
I really liked the graphics of the book. It can fill you in with the worse war scenario after the peaceful life which they use to have. The paintings in the book keeps you fresh as the reminder of other khaled’s book. Khaled is magical writer; his works has left an impact on his readers and auidences. We keep waiting for his book to get published from the time he announces he will be back with an another awesome book.
I wish author could have written more this book is already a star!
Respectfully, author tried to fill his reader’s heart with tears. To make world more aware of the tragedy! And, I believe he has acheived his goal. I want more pages of this book!!!
The want more paintings of afghanistan culture to make me feel more serene.
With all our heart we pray for people sufferings!!!
Rating- 4/5 Stars!
