“All I can do is Pray, Inshallan”
-Sea Prayer, Khaled Hosseini
About the book:
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.
No doubt, this book is based on a tragedy which this whole world cannot deny being a brutal and unthinkable situation. The worse scenario in the entire history which is unforgettable. 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 which was 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 only drawback I found is that author could have written more. Otherwise, this book is a star!
Rating- 3/5 Stars!
