Review: Under The Son by Arthur Dorros.

This is a great story. They read it in schools but this was the first I heard about the book. It was well-written and the characters were heartwarming. The facts are astonishing, and the contemporary war novel will captivate the reader. The book is about war-torn Bosnia and a young boy’s struggle with the ethnic hatred that has turned his world upside down. The story is told through the perspective of a thirteen-year-old boy experiencing the pain, confusion, and grief of that tragic time of the Balkan wars struggling to find hope and healing while trying to find at least one family member still alive after he was separated from them while running to stay alive.

It’s a great book for teenage boys who have to grow up fast and be responsible for issues that only an adult should have to worry about. This type of story can keep you reading page after page and through the night. The characters and places are well described throughout the book and gives the reader a great view of a recent time in history. The book offers great insight in how it is to survive a tragic war and being in places in turmoil and what abuse people have to endure. As you read it feels like recent currant events, ethnic identity and strong tolerance to situation that they cannot control.

The author writes about a young teenage boy who is thirteen and his name is, Ehmet. He leaves his home with his mother to the country where they think they would be safe and Ehmet’s father will meet up with in a short time. However, it wasn’t long before they were attracted and Ehmet got out and planned to meet his mother at a certain place as they had talked about if something happened. He waited for his mother for quite awhile when she finally came to him in an abused state and Ehmet could not get her to tell him what happened after he left the farmhouse. All Ehmet knew was his mother was abused in some way and now he needed to get her moving out of the area and find some shelter for her during the night.

Ehmet decided they needed to get to his grandparents in Croatia, many miles away. The story goes on for a while with them walking at night and resting during the day and trying to stay out of the path of anyone. He did not know who to trust anymore. As they were traveling his mother was slowly getting worse. Ehmet tried so hard to keep his mother comfortable as much as he could and kept trying to feed her berries or other editable plants and mushrooms that he new were safe to eat but her health was deteriorating. They traveled mostly in the woods following a dirt road not far from them and Ehmet struggled with many disturbing challenges that no child should go through. Than the day came where Ehmet felt the first and most excruciating pain he had ever encountered….. ( )
