The Rain Fish- Book Review by Swasti

Book: The rain fish- The stories from the Pizza Boy

Author: Bishant Karki

The rain fish is a combination of stories arranged collectively, but each story consists of an intriguing moral or fact. Which story do you want to choose?

As a whole, I have enjoyed “The rain fish” since I was able to encounter the ideas and imagination of a seven-year-old; the stories give significant perception into a child perspective. It is conspicuously distinguishing from a teenager’s aspect. In my opinion, I conclude that these stories can educate the current generation to comprehend nature and merely not regard unfortunate situations.

However, the stories would have been captivating if there was a component that would fascinate older readers but also agree with the author’s point. Arguably, as a reader, I was not able to accept the argument advocating that we put a limit to the number of minutes which we use electronics. Indeed, I can apprehend that not many people interact socially with one and other, but other factors are ascertaining this. These determinants can be understood when young children start to be more conscious of various phases of the world. Furthermore, 30 minutes of screen time rule applies to young children, but this is not suitable for adults and teenagers. Over the years, teenagers and adults will have assignments that will be relevant to their life and have a perceptible influence on their purposes for the future. Consequently, there should be an element to incorporate older readers so that it doesn’t seem tedious.

Although there is some room for improvement, I was profoundly mesmerised by the quality of writing. It is unquestionably incredible to appreciate that such a young author can generate such innovative concepts by himself. I regard the story was especially striking in the area of conveying efficacious messages and spreading this to educate children on how to perceive numerous circumstances. My leading point is children will read compelling books such as this. Optimistically, this will invigorate them to compose their fantasies. Reading through this book will stop them from being apprehensive about writing or narrating a story. Sometimes reading a simple story allows us to take a step back and see the world from a distant viewpoint. We, young people, can transform people’s opinions and assert current issues and crises such as global warming. Bishant’s book has demonstrated this movement by publishing his thoughts and being able to express this more productively. Overall, this could make children, teenagers and even adults wonder how they can put their input in doing something revolutionary.

Finally, I would like to say that I would recommend this book for children around age seven, eight and nine. I believe that at this age, children are still developing their knowledge even further, and the context is more relatable.

Here is a flavour the book holds: “I want people to be real people and to live in the real world – not in the computer world. I want people to get more knowledge from Mother Nature without using their phones.”
