Sea Prayer brings out the distress that refugees are subjected to. So many readers felt that the book isn't long enough, but I feel that the author has highlighted his message and conveyed it in a manner which doesn't need a thousand words, the ones used are just enough to touch you and leave an impact. The words will touch you, break you and affect you in every possible way. It is not a fiction, but a harsh reality of millions of innocent refugees.
You could probably walk into a store and read this book in 3 minutes flat. The poetry didn’t ring a bell so I don’t like this book at all. 👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼
Or so chooses the English Dictionary to describe the 3 year old Alan Kurdy and thousands like him who seek the safer confines of this world in light of the madness called War.
Sea Prayer reveals the abyss humanity is dissolving into.
My one year old sleeps nestled in my arms when there are thousands who are displaced and dissolved with no hopes of redemption.
Societies in droves are reduced to prayers out of their hopelessness.
Lives and memories are erased without an iota of mercy.
Sea Prayer is an eye opener for those of us who have chosen to distance ourselves from the harshness of it all.
The narrative drives a nail straight through the heart as the father narrates the almost ‘’fairy tale’’ like backdrop his city used to be. A memory which will never serve his son.
Sea Prayer brings to life the tragedy of little children having to face death and destruction, yet find solace amongst such ruins.
The vulnerability felt by the refugees as they are turned down by many so called “Super Powers’’ makes one squirm.
Sea Prayer leaves you with a twinge of shame of having browsed through zillions of such morning news without a care, impatient to get onto the sports page.
It leaves you wondering where we humans left our ‘’humanity’’ in the scheme of things.
It leaves you wondering on how abysmally we as a society failed to protect Alan and such alike.
It leaves you wondering that if it could happen to Syria, it could happen to any country.
It leaves you with a prayer for the thousands who perished at Sea, those of no fixed address.
At the heart of it, Hosseini's latest tribute to Syrian families is more than an just another novel. A heartbreaking and heartwarming tale of poignant reminiscence that a father relays to his son while on his journey away from his war-torn country, his home. With just handful of words, Hosseini makes a brilliant attempt at melting the coldest of hearts; something most gigantic novels fail at.
Read it for the sheer brilliance of the expression of his thoughts, in fewer words and sketches that will last forever in your memories.
