Why did I love this book?
Imagine leaving your family and moving, on your own, to a place, where you can’t understand the language or the culture or even the buildings. A place where everything is utterly strange. The Arrival doesn’t just describe what that’s like. It allows you to experience it for yourself. And it explores how people can still communicate, even without shared language or culture. It’s a brilliant book - subtle and moving and full of hope. And it does all that without using a single word.
