The tsunami of 2004 in Asia was something no one was expecting and a disaster no one will forget. I cannot imagine loosing my family
and being the only surviver. This story was not very organized. Deraniyagala thoughts were all over the place. I can see where Deranlyagla
was just writing in  journal to express her feelings but before publishing this memoir the editor of the book should have organized the thoughts
a little bit better.

    So disappointing!

    I could not wait to read this book! The free sample had me hooked, however after the tsunami came through in this book, the rest of the writing was lackluster at best. Basically we took the looong journey through her grief with her. The writing was bland and to be honest i was so bored i did not eveb finish the book, stopping instead on page 116.
    I feel for the author having gone through such a devastating event and loss. I hope she is able to heal a little more each and every day. Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us, it jyst was not a book that worked for me.
