IN THE SEA THERE ARE CROCODILES Based on the True Story of Enaiatollah Akbari

by | Read by Mir Waiss Najibi

Fiction • 4.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

This heartbreaking story, based on the true story of a boy who fled the Taliban in Afghanistan, is told with a childlike simplicity by Mir Waiss Najibi. The narration doesn’t overplay the emotional impact of this journey by a mother who leaves her child to fend for himself in Pakistan in the face of threats by the Taliban in Afghanistan to take him to pay debts owed by his father. Najibi delivers the story with a flat honesty that underscores the plight of the preteen. The narration is augmented by words from the writer, Fabio Geda, and the interaction between the two highlights how necessary his involvement was in getting this story to readers.
