The Bone Sparrow

The Bone Sparrow is a brilliant book which I absolutely loved - I deliberately went to bed early most nights just so I could stay up reading it for longer!

Subhi may be one of my new favourite fictional characters ever - I love the way he speaks and views the world, his personality really came alive for me on the page.

I'm ashamed to say I'd never heard of the Rohingya people before reading this book but have since educated myself on them and their plight. This book is a must read for everyone in order to understand the life of a refugee camp detainee.

An excellent read (until the end I think which I felt was a bit rushed - so for that I'd give it a 9/10).
