Every so often a book comes out that is so enthralling and beautiful it is difficult to review because it can never do it justice. Open Water by Caleb Azumah Nelson is one of those books. The ability to express tenderness, to show the calm and intensity of love and grief. A story that feels cinematic, as if every scene is glowing. It is only February but it is already my book of the year. It is a book that is to be shared with others, to be celebrated. A book that says so much about what is unsaid, only understood. My recommendation is: read it. Then read it again.
