You will not have my hate.
This book is one of my favourites. It fell into my hand in a coincidence.
Honestly, I read it in one go. I couldn’t put the book down.
Best book of the year 2016 in the Guardian and Observer.
“You will not have my hate” is a book about Antoine Leiris, who lost the love of his life on the 13th of November 2015 in Paris.
His wife Hélène became a victim of a terrorist attack. She died with nighty-eight more humans at the concert of Le Bataclan.
While the world was mourning and tried to find an explanation, Antoine Leiris wrote an open letter on facebook. This letter went around the world. He had only one weapon: Words.
Antoine describes his broken life as a widower and father, but life must continue.
Despite terror and violence Antoine Leiris says: You will not have my hate.

This amazing book shows really got, that people must go through tough times. But you should continue – or you will lose everything.
In this situation, the terrorisst would win. That should not happen.
Antoine Leiris is an impressive person. His thoughts and attitude are just inspiring.
He give us hope how we can be happy in our life.
But read the book by yourself.
I swear you will keep it in your mind.
