Review: The Road to Chlia by Michele Marineau is a thought-provoking story with a bumpy narration style. Switching from secondary character to protagonist to third person was confusing and frustrating because I found that I wasn’t interested in what the secondary character had to say. The parts that were written by Karim or about his direct experiences were definitely the most compelling and engaging aspect of the book.“In the afternoon, the bombing starts up again in the distance, but they hardly notice. Over there are bombs; here are trees, rocks, birds and butterflies. The two worlds have nothing in common. Maybe this is how one forgets atrocities. By distancing oneself. By acting as if they don’t exist.” – from The Road to Chlifa by Michèle Marineau, page 92“Glancing up, I saw Karim, on his feet, looking totally shattered. There was nothing left of cold indifference in him. In his eyes were rage, horror, fear, but mostly a terrible sadness. That’s when I understood the newcomer wasn’t haughty or disdainful like some said. He was simply in despair.” – from The Road to Chlifa by Michèle Marineau, page 24 When a young teen named Karim is approached about escaping his war torn country by a young girl named Maha, he is convinced that it is really his last hope. Along with her little brother they set off on a journey by foot to reach somewhere far away, a little place called Chlifa. However there are a number of obstacles that they face along the way and this makes their road to Chlifa no walk in the park.
