God, Does Humanity Exist? By Kamand Kajouri

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

“We read their spiteful tweets, yet when we pass them in classrooms, in trains and markets, we dismiss those seemingly small, nameless opportunities for kindness. We don’t know—and how ignorant we are— that every time we ignore them, we sharpen our daggers and butcher humanity in its raw flesh— not in dark alleyways, no, but in the light of day.”

Disclaimer – I received a free digital download of this book by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

The title of the book did make me curious about what the book held within – the question of which was answered in the introduction by the author. He states that “The title of this book is meant to make us think, because whilst I assert the existence of an intangible, incomprehensible, and inexplicable God, I question the existence of humanity.” which I think is an incredibly interesting assertion and one I hadn’t thought about very much.

To say humanity is missing would be an understatement when keeping up to date with world news and current events. But I’d never really thought about the lack of humanity before and I think that is one of the aims of the author. Every body sees this lack of humanity, but how many of us actually question it?

The introduction has made me all the more interested to read the verse contained inside and after reading through the book, I can say I wasn’t disappointed. I really enjoyed all of the prose and I’m interested to read what else the author has written. I think this is a must read, it touches on some taboo topics and sheds light on things I believe the mass majority need to hear and contemplate.
