About this deal

Storie così si sono già lette, e anche viste al cinema: ma c’è sempre posto per altre, non cala mai la mia attenzione su vicende simili. La storia inizia quando Enaiatollah, si ritrova da solo in Pakistan poiché la madre voleva un futuro diverso per il suo bambino. It is an insightful and educational book about the courage of a 10 year old forced to face the world alone and survive against all odds.

La madre del protagonista ha preferito cercare di mettere in salvo la vita di suo figlio piuttosto che vederlo prigioniero del proprio paese natale.Salutary and humane, In the Sea There Are Crocodiles, as its "international bestseller" status indicates, deserves to be read widely by young and older readers alike. I recommend this one for a quick, less in depth look at tragic events such as this and tales of survival coming from the Middle East. Joseph Peschel of the Boston Globe had both praise and criticism for the book, stating that it was "an intriguing story, but absent from it is any deep, convincing sense of how Enaiat feels about the events that befall him. personalmente l'ho trovata una bella storia, ricca di umanità e molto diversa dalle storie "vere" spesso raccontate nei libri.

It was heart-breaking to read about all of the things that Enaiatollah and many other children went through. The harrowing adventures that follow in this superb little novel are based on the true story Enaiat told to author Fabio Geda in Turin at the end of his perilous, five-year odyssey through Iran, Turkey and Greece, all the way to Italy. But then, touchingly, he does name the Italian family who foster him because, he says, their names do not cause him pain. My motive for reading it was due to my tutoring Syrian children who have come to live in our small Bavarian village. He continues his story up until he reaches Italy and finds some stability and safety with a faster family there.un viaggio durato anni quello che, da un piccolo villaggio afghano, ha condotto il bambino protagonista di questo libro fino alla città di Torino. Did love the ending though, so glad it ended with a ray of hope and chance for a very different life. Fabio Geda beautifully delivers the human experience of Enaiatollah, whose will for survival is more than remarkable.

Un libro che fa riflettere sulle condizioni disperate dei migranti, costretti a lasciare la propria famiglia e la propria terra per sfuggire a persecuzioni politiche, religiose e razziali.My mother decided it was better to know I was in danger far from her; but on the way to a different future, than to know I was in danger near her; but stuck in the same old fear. Told with humor and humanity, In the Sea There Are Crocodiles brilliantly captures Enaiat's moving and engaging voice and lends urgency to an epic story of hope and survival. He sets his sights on moving to somewhere he hears the opportunities are better, and pays people-traffickers (whose "services" he will employ well into his teens) to get him to Iran.
