Format: Paperback
This is an amazing book. I did have to refer to the glossary and character pages a few times but it was well worth it. It is the best book I have read in years and a very good introduction into modern Egypt. I was engrossed with all the characters and wished that it was the first of a series.

Format: Paperback
An eye opener regarding the hypocrisy that Egyptians deal with and partake on a daily basis. The characters and the parallel story lines made it difficult to put the book down.

I congratulate the author for writing a book that may in turn put his life in danger-- but is so necessary for Egyptinas and non-Egyptians alike to read.

Fun read, helps better understand the realities of modern-day Cairo. Didn't quite want the book to end. Strongly recommend it.

The truth is often controversal especially in cultures that do not face truths!

Aswany does not hesitate to pen truths about political corruption, sexuality and fundamentalism rampant in his country. This is not to say that such controversies are non-existent in many other parts of the world, but it is harder for such truths to come out of countries and cultures that would prefer not to be exposed. A glimpse into Aswany's country and society is painful to read, but the need to know the conclusion compels the reader to continue.
