Mitch and his new, pregnant wife, Amber are on their dream honeymoon in Patong, Thailand over Xmas holiday. On boxing day at breakfast everything starts to shake as the tremors of an earthquake hit. It leaves Amber shaken so she decides to rest in their room while Mitch goes for a swim in the sea. That's when the tsunami hits! Amber is screaming for Mitch and scanning the beach from her balcony, when the water starts coming in her room. As. She is calling for help the shock triggers her labour, Amber is taken to hospital, her baby's life hand in the balance, her husband missing and she is alone in a foreign country to deal with the aftermath of this disaster. This story will have you in tears as the drama unfolds. Although it's a work of fiction it's based around the true Events of boxing day 2004.. The author writes in such a descriptive style that you feel Amber's anguish and fear, you Sense the commotion and chaos going on around her as she comes to term with the life changing events. I would highly recommend Tsunami

One word for this short story – WOW.

It follows Amber who is 6 months pregnant and is enjoying the sun and sea of Thailand along with her husband Mitch. They are on their dream honeymoon and soaking up every bit of time together before parenthood. Little do they know of the events that are about to unfold on Boxing Day and change the course of their lives forever.

At only 43 pages long, this story packs a huge punch with powerful emotions surging through it. It manages to capture the feelings of Amber brilliantly and I found myself swept up in her plight and couldn’t help but cry along with her as the day continues. This is an exceptionally well written story. It is written with sensitivity taking into account the fact that it is based on true tragic events and makes you feel just a snippet of what people who lived through this catastrophe actually experienced. Well done J.O on a great story.

This is a wonderful time for Amber and Mitch who are enjoying their honeymoon when disaster happens on the island where they are staying. The book encompasses the events of the Boxing Day tsunami and brings to you a small glimpse into what these people went through. I found that the author has written the storyline with a deep understanding of the emotions Amber and Mitch were going through so much that you were able to relate to the characters and the storyline of what happens when dealing with a disaster. The author has captured the devastation of the tsunami on the area and the people experiencing it with such sensitivity, you can imagine yourself there and going through what they are experiencing. The emotions they go through makes you laugh, cry, and believe in miracles. The book is only a novella and you are taken into the story quickly but it is extremely well written. I didn't feel like I was missing anything and I wasn't left wondering what happened. The story flowed very well and was beautifully written. The author has taken you into Amber and Mitch lives and the event that changed them (WARNING you will need tissues to finish the book). This is now the third book from this author I have read and they just keep getting better and better. I cannot wait to find out where this author takes me on my next journey. The sky's the limit for this person and he is fast becoming someone to watch out for.

Tsunami was an interesting read for me. I’m usually not one to read a short story but was intrigued by the topic as I remember the media around this tragedy.

This was a great read and I found myself finishing it before I realised where the time had gone. The writing flowed really well and you are sucked into the story along with the characters.

What I liked:
You really feel like this could be you and I found my emotions around this added to the story.

What I would have liked more of:
It was great as a short story but it could also have been longer without feeling drawn out. I felt like the end was a little rushed and could have had a bit more explaining around the how and why things did and didn’t occur.

If you are looking for a quick but emotional read, then this is a book for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Life emerges from the darkness of a tragedy 15 Feb. 2017
By Ria - Reading Is Our Satisfaction Blog - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
December 26th 2004, a date that will be forever remembered in the minds of many. A date when 250,000 plus people perished and many more had their lives changed forever. The date an earthquake caused a tsunami to hit the coastlines of many Asian countries and cause a tragedy beyond all belief.

J.O Mantel's Tsunami touches on the fictional story of an Australian couple caught up in this phenomenal disaster. Amber and Mitch are newlyweds and are enjoying their honeymoon in Thailand. Amber is six months pregnant with their first child, so this is their last chance for some alone time prior to the baby's arrival.

What ensues is a tale that will tear your heart apart and have you reaching for the tissues - so have them nearby. Amber and Mitch's story will take you on the proverbial emotional rollercoaster ride - you will experience laughter, joy, pain, anguish and fear through every word that Mr Mantel has written.

It is only a short novella, but Mr Mantel has been able to put so much into it that you will be emotionally exhausted once it has finished. BRILLIANT is the only way to describe this story.

What a wonderful quick read. This author puts you right in the middle of the action.

Going on your honeymoon should be a joyous occasion. But sometimes it doesn't always work that way. Mitch and Amber traveled to Thailand to enjoy the peaceful, beautiful country. But nature had another plan. Will they survive this disaster in order to raise the family they already started? I really enjoyed this book. And I want to read more from this author.
