A Very Large Expanse Of Sea (Non. spoiler Review)

Hello everyone it have been along time since i wrote any review here but that because i wasn’t have any time for that but yaah i’m finally here.

So today i’m going to review A Very Large Expanse Of Sea book.

  • Author: tahereh Mafi.

  • Genre: YA. contemporary.

  • Publisher: HarperCollins Children’s Books.

  • Published Date: October 16, 2018.

  • No. Of Pages: 310.

  • My Rating: 🌟🌟🌟.


This book is all about Racism and it is set in 2002 A year after December 11 which we all know what happened in this date. So we follow here a teenager Muslim girl Shirin and she’s tired of rude stares and comment in her new high school because of the hijab she wear so she turns to drowns her frustration in music and spends her after noons break.dancing with her brother. But then one day she meets that guy Ocean in the biology class and after that her life goes upside down.

My Review:

“ Because,” I said, “ because I always say that. I always say that I don’t care what other people think. I say it doesn’t bother me, that I don’t give a shit about the opinions of assholes but it’s not true,” I said, and my eyes stung as I said it. “It’s not true, because it hurts every time, and that means I still care, it means that I’m still not strong enough…”

This book was a very fast read it almost 300 pages i went through it with a very high expectations as i saw it will be a unique reading but unfortunately no it wasn’t that unique as i expect actually it have that typical young adult high school romance (which i didn’t support it at all ) that we find in any YA book don’t get me wrong i enjoy this conventional romance in books sometimes but i wasn’t expecting to find it here because this book was supposed to be a unique one because there is no much book talk about Muslem girls out there Plus i have alot of issue with that book, i didn’t realy feel that connection with the main character to make me sympathetically with here and honestly the only thing I love in this book was Shirin relationship with her Brother !.

But after all the book at all was good but not perfect the writing style was so simple and easy to get through so i recommend it to anyone who need an easy book to read in one sitting almost two.
