Touching and beautifully written

  • Book: Let Not the Waves of the Sea
  • Location: Koh Phi Phi
  • Author: Simon Stephenson



This is an account of the author’s emotional journey following the death of his brother Dominic, and his brother’s girlfriend in the Andaman Sea, and the emotional fall out of their deaths on the family. I read this book with great interest as I had been on Ko Phi Phi in the Spring of that year, I learned from the book that much of the island had since been rebuilt. This book is in its own way a memorial to the many people who died in the Tsunami. It was Radio 4’s Book of the Week in the Summer of 2011.
