Mini reviews #1: I am literally drowning

๐ŸŒŸ Last couple of weeks, I read “A very large Expanse of Sea”, “Sea Prayer” & “And The Ocean was our Sky” and that’s why I am drowning. The first one is an ARC which have a full review and this will be mini reviews for the later two.

๐ŸŒŸ This is a short story by Patrick Ness, in under 160 pages, we have a kind of “Moby Dick” re-telling. It also has great illustrations which helped understanding the quirkiness of this story. If you are already familiar with Patrick, then you know that he has the strangest ideas and I am always rooting for creative authors! I like that this was from Whales POV because it is all about the symbolism. The story is confusing at first but then we quickly understand everything and there is that “Ahaaa” moment where everything clicks in and it makes sense.

๐ŸŒŸ This is not supposed to be a children or a MG story just because it is illustrated, this is a story that can be read fast if you have an hour or a bit more to spare and it shows how Rumors affect us and how we turn ourselves into monsters while claiming to fight monsters. I gave it 3 out of 5 stars!

Sea Prayer

๐ŸŒŸ I am keeping this very short because the synopsis of this book is longer than the book itself.

๐ŸŒŸ It made me feel sad and emotional. But this is not a story!! I think this was a smart way to raise funds for KH Foundation and giving you something for your money. So don’t buy “the book” for the book itself, just buy it as a donation to the foundation.

๐ŸŒŸ I won’t rate it and you can even listen and interact with a 360 video of the story on Youtube:
