“When we migrate,We murder from our lives those we leave behind”
“Exit West” -The Story got me interested,While going through a magazine article and immediately noted the book in my Reading list,For the next Year 2018.
Last week of December,I ordered it online and it was waiting on my Desk to be read soon!! No,I wasn’t waiting for 2018 to begin to start reading this one,I was on the verge of getting through another book “Sapiens” another one I had on my list and ended 2017 by reading the Book .
It’s barely been 2 days of the New Year!!
And I am Just Done reading ‘Exit West ,by Mohsin Hamid,Who I wasn’t aware was the author who wrote the’ Reluctant Fundamentalist.’Which was Adapted into a movie by Mira Nair.
The Book”Exit West”is very similar to the story of Reluctant Fundamentalist and Going through the books written by Hamid,I realised he is intrigued by the idea of cross cultural influence and ‘Exit West’ Too is a story of lovers Saeed & Nadia’s lives evolving through the the years of living together and never settling in one place realising Home is where they belong.And in many ways we all are immigrants and refugees in our homeland.
Exit West has also being shortlisted by ManBookerPrize 2017 and has been on of the Best Books Of 2017.
