Overview

Behind the Eclipse: The Unheard from the West African Ebola Crisis... by Pramudith D Rupasinghe

Tamba, later known as George, unveils his staggering story of surviving Ebola, which he calls a 'rebirth'.
It is astounding to know how he maintains his stamina to continue his journey along the rugged pathway of life as an Ebola survivor for the sake of the two sons left with him after the tragic death of his wife, Aminatta, and the daughter orphaned after Kumba, his first love.
'I want my story to be heard by the entire world. Life is a battle, which one has to fight even when in the jaws of defeat, and one can't be selfish to give it up as it is for those whom we love and care for',
Everyone has a battle to fight in life, and Tamba could be an inspiration.

I just finished reading the book. Without wasting many words, I have one thing to say. "It is simply outtanding". The reader has some traits of Gabriella Gracia Marquez. Using the right word at the right point to heighten the feelings encapsulated in the sentences, the author makes miracles. I was lost few times. The I had to read again. After second reading only I was able to understand what was the underlying idea. My opinion is 'Behind the Eclipse' is a beautiful piece of philosophy and a literal masterpiece. It is a whole school about life from A-Z. I am amazed to discover the outstanding skills of the young author behind the book. Unbelievable. This part below took three rounds of reading..... and finally, I made it. "In a few minutes, the security officer came with a nurse and a doctor. The doctor looked at her and said. ‘We are extremely sorry; we can’t accommodate patients anymore, but you …’ The doctor could not finish what he wanted to say Aminatta fell on the ground just like a banana tree caught in high winds. She couldn’t` further withstand what her child was going through. My head started spinning. I could not respond to them verbally, and I felt numb and paralysed. I was lost in the crepuscule in the nethermost point of the trench of hopelessness. I saw the doctor and the nurse walking inside the office through the curtain of hot tears in my eyes and they blurred into the darkness as I closed my eyes and hit my head on the metal post in the waiting room. ‘Take this medication and rest at home; we will let you know in case we would have space.’ I heard someone saying. It was the nurse who had come back with medication. I took them and turned back towards the taxi." Hats off.
