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 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.

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.
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.
