Everyone Else is a Returnee
Have you ever heard of “Everyone Else is a Returnee?” Well, it’s the latest novel from author Saladin Ahmed, and if you’ve seen his previous novels such as “I Am a Fish”The Night Walking” you’ll know what to expect.
Everyone Else is a Returnee is based on the author’s memoirs and experiences. Some of the story events are fictional, but most of them are accurate to his real life. You won’t find any hyperbole in the book, except for the story of how he started writing the novel.
In fact, Saladin Ahmed said that in the beginning, his mother “screamed at me from the other room” because he was afraid she would see how he had gotten it wrong. But he has since moved on from that story, and that is a lesson for all of us. If you read your stories out loud, even if it’s just to yourself, you can train yourself to be confident with the way you speak and to keep everything straightforward.
The basis of Everyone Else is a Returnee is “horrible stuff happens.” It doesn’t happen to just anyone, or just to everyone else. For every second of every day of Ahmed’s life, he has “someone come out of the woodwork, screaming something that will never be repeated again.” So he uses this story to write a novel that he hopes will have a universal appeal, which is what he wants for his books.
So, for every person who reads Saladin Ahmed’s novel, he will receive a unique benefit. He doesn’t know how many, but he hopes it will be many. Whether the novel was a success or not, the authors he’s worked with on books that he’s written or planned to write, love him.
The first chapter of Everyone Else is Returneecontains an ironic twist. It’s a twist that will shock you. But it’s not the twist you expect, and it will keep you on your toes.
Since writing novels has become more difficult for him, and he knows that he can’t afford to be lazy and only work on one book at a time, he has learned to try something different. Writing a novel can be a scary process, and if you allow yourself to get intimidated by the idea of writing a novel, you’ll probably fail.
For every person who reads Everyone Else, he will be rewarded with another lesson. Because sometimes, when you’re writing, you can forget about being so honest with yourself and take the comfort of others in your writing.
