The other reviewers gave the book 5 stars but I thought it was only worth a 3. I wonder if a lot was lost in the translation...This book didn't turn out to be as engrossing as I thought it would be. I was disappointed that all the characters lives didn't somehow intersect as happened in Mave Binchey's "Evening Class". Some people have already commented that this book is a true reflection of modern life in Cairo and I can see how this book would have been quite controversial there with it's honest portrayal of the personal lives of the characters. The movie is being released on DVD this month and I can certainly see that this novel would make a great movie. Hoping I'm right....
