Exit West - Mohsin Hamid - A Short Summary and Review

A short summary of the book Exit West:

Stepping through the doorway of a new life looking for refuge.

My favorite Mohsin Hamid quote from the book:

"The end of the world can be cozy at times."

Questions to ponder while reading Exit West:

What rights should refugees have?

What can we do to make these situations more humane?

My review of Exit West:

The story is believable and appalling because it is so believable (well maybe not the teleportation part)

Why can't we (as a race) come up with better and more humane solutions for displaced people is beyond me.

Still, though, you can't just take over someone's home.
