The Things We Thought We Knew by Mahsuda Snaith - Blog Tour


The Things We Thought We Knew by Mahsuda Snaith
Genre: Fiction
Source: Transworld Books

Ravine has spend her last 10 years of her life in bed suffering chronic pain syndrome, since the day her friend Marianne disappeared... 

Since the beginning you feel there's something about Ravine's friend disappearance that we don't know, a mystery that keep you glued to the pages of this book and needing to know more, and the big question, does it have anything to do with Ravine's illness?  
I loved the intersperse stories between the present and Ravine's childhood, so sweet and tender, that make you remember your own dreams and experiences when you were 8 years old. 
My favourite character was Ravine's mother, Amma, her love for her daughter is so big, she will stop all of her life just to be near her daughter and support her, and at the same time she is strong and has enough confidence in her daughter hoping that everything will get better, even if her life has never been easy...
This is not the type of books I normally read, but I loved how Mahsuda Snaith has created a heartwarming story with real-life characters and with a multicultural environment. Be prepared to fall in love with this book.
Do you remember any childhood memory that marked your life?
