    One thought on “Burning the Sea”

    1. There are parts of this novel that are very good, such as Tollomi s backstory However, the attempted poetic wanderings only muster a meandering confusion, and the whole thing is melodramatic.

    2. Found this one randomly on a sale shelf and it was a lucky find The characters felt so complex to me, and I liked how the book brought up so many issues colonialism, memory and identity I wish Michelle had had a bit to her, as it confused me a little bit that Tollomi was drawn to someone so vacant He correctly saw it as hiding something big I would ve just found her boring I liked his story better, because there was to it, and his issues were capital i Issues of race and how personal identity [...]

    3. It s hard to write about this book without ruining any of the plot which I sincerely wish to avoid It is a good book that resonates read likeiamfeasting 20
