MOST RECENT

I always bring a new book with me to Paris. This time “Exit West” by Mohsin Hamid. The book follows a young couple in the fictional version of Damascus. Is there a reason to continue with your education, work and other aspects of life, when everything around you are literally falling apart? What do you do, when you finally realise that it is impossible to live in your home country? #litterature #book #bookstagram #exit #west #exitwest #mohsinhamid #paris #saturday #park #parklife #butteschaumont

No Exit.
Young love woven into the fabric of civil war, exodus & xenophobia, the book delivers more than it promised, unmaking the home and world in the face of forced intimacies and basic human instincts of self before the other, elements of fantasy neutralizing the dwindling social reality of migration lives.

Lovely book, I kept putting it down even though it's a quick read - I blame my crazy life! Wonderful perspectives, beautiful storytelling, characters you just want to find their happiness <3 #exitwest #mohsinhamid #everybodyreads #bookworm #books

Exit West, a powerful and brilliantly-written novel that follows Saeed and Nadia as they flee their home, an unnamed country going through a civil war, leaving everything and everyone behind. I found myself really rooting for Saeed and Nadia. I was left heartbroken with what could have been.

For people who appreciate learning and reading about the immigrant and refugee experience (like myself) this is a must read ~ 5⭐. Hamid adds a fictional touch by adding these highly guarded and high-risk doors that the charactors take when emigrating from their country. By passing through these doors, they are transported to a new place around the world where they are one among many migrants and they have a decision to make: either stay or keep moving. Going back is not an option - it's hardly ever an option even in real life.

I gotta say that I finally listened to this audiobook after seeing that @thestackspod discussed it on her podcast. Immediately after finishing it, I listened into the conversation. Thank you to @thestackspod for such a great recommendation and discussion! Will continue to listen 👌

One of the most beautifully written books I’ve read in awhile. #exitwest #mohsinhamid #illleadyouthroughthedoor #stefandthebooks

In Exit West by Mohsin Hamid two young adults fall in love in the backdrop of a war-torn Islamic country. This is a story about how a relationship unfolds and redefines itself in the midst of ever-changing circumstances. .
Hamid’s writing style is straightforward in a way that can be shocking to the senses, delivering big news without buildup or fanfare. I found it interesting. I was thrown off at times by his use of run-on sentences and love for the comma, but he did have some passages that were truly insightful and beautiful - the kind that you re-read and then read aloud to anyone around who will listen.
.
There are elements of magical realism in the story, but they are mainly used as a vehicle to propel the story forward and don’t take center stage. I enjoyed how he creatively invented a world without national borders and open migration possibilities, but I found that I wasn’t invested in the main characters or finding out where the story was headed. 3/5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️

“ And when she went out it seemed to her that she too had migrated, that everyone migrates, even if we stay in the same houses out whole lives, because we can’t help it. We are all migrants through time “ Exit West .

No pude elegir mejor novela para cerrar el ciclo de lectura un libro por cada semana del año; nombrada por el New York Times como uno se loa 10 mejores libros del 2017, Exit West una vibrante novela que nos lleva hasta Medio Oriente y nos sensibiliza a un problemática mundial que como seres humanos nos concierne; la guerra y sus refugiados.
Mohsin Hamid se adentra a una conversación que no termina y nos entera de una forma pacífica y hasta poética el panorama desgarrador al que se enfrentan todos aquellos que viven en un país en guerra.
