#Review: Exit West by Mohsin Hamid

Exit West Exit West by Mohsin Hamid
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Exit West starts like any book about wars raging in the region. A guy meets a girl ,who are totally opposite to each other and that's how they get attracted and start being with each other. The love story you know might be doomed soon , but it survives as unexpected events brings the girl into the house where the guy stays with his parents. When they migrate using the doors that connect one country to another and appear randomly in the country. And then you realize that this is not just their story but of how the whole world is changing and getting used to the same. There are similar stories playing out all over the world and soon it becomes evident how it all is connected.

 There are worlds that are alike the present and yet so unlike ,but humans always stay same and yet changing. This is a story of changing worlds , changing human bonds and the similar search for love , home and rhythm of life. Its nit just a story but an observation of way of life - of love evolving into respect, comfort and finding home. This book is a beauty to treasure while it lasts.
