In the Sea There are Crocodiles: Based on the True Story of Enaiatollah Akbari. A Novel

In the Sea There are Crocodiles: Based on the True Story of Enaiatollah Akbari. A Novel
by Geda, Fabio; translated by Howard Curtis
FIC GED

Enaiat woke up, and his mother was gone. He remembered the night before when she put him to bed; she held him tight against her chest and made him to promise three things in life: never use drugs, never use weapons, never cheat or steal. Here began Enaiatollah’s long journey through unfamiliar worlds and he was ten.

This is not a book of fancy words or literary acrobats but a story of humanity in its simplicity. Reading Enaiatollah’s story was like sitting with him and listened to his story - how he was pushed to take the long journey of his life from his hometown Nava, Afghanistan to Pakistan to Iran to Turkey to Greece to Italy; the people he met and his survival of unimaginable hardships in the journey. Reading Enaiatollah’s story is like living through his adventures, his fears and his dreams. It humbles you and makes you a better human being.
