10 out of 10

Wow. What a mesmerizing account from a survivor of the 2004 tsunami that killed around 230,000 people in 14 countries. One minute, Sonali Deraniyagala and her family are enjoying a holiday in a Sri Lankan resort, the next, they are running for their lives as the tsunami engulfs their world. Deraniyagala's storytelling is like a wave itself, her anguish and guilt advancing and retreating, sometimes violently, sometimes gently, but always a constant. This must have been a terribly difficult book to write, but it is written beautifully. I am so sorry that this is a true story.

Like a broken water pipe,

the memories come in gushes
threatening to drown.
