For me the key moment was when Asya listed the things Saif disliked about her - they were core aspects of her very style of being; they were the things I adored about her.
I read this as a very strongly feminist and woman-oriented text. Women in Asya's life negotiate diverse situations, make diverse choices, and manage the consequences.
One of Asya's friends is in love with a Palestinian classmate, whose life becomes increasingly difficult over the course of the narrative.
The hostility towards Palestinians and social class dynamics in Egyptian society are illuminated through relationships seen from female perspectives.
Soueif skillfully integrates layers of political awareness and a keenly felt sense of place into the spaces of private life in this work, and these fine ingredients are well seasoned by literary and music references from Euro-Usian culture.
Asya questions her focus in education on English literature, and in the scene in which she is made to 'produce' Arabic sounds for a class on phonemics her discomfort finally forces her into silence.
Her experience as a temporary migrant, suffused with terrible loneliness, also includes exotification. It's interesting that Soueif has her unwillingly, laboriously perform a juiceless analysis on this corpus killing the pleasure.
I took this as a wry comment on 'Western' education as well as futher detailing of Asya's character 'this will teach machines to understand metaphor', she grimly reflects.
The experience galvanises her to push hard, against barriers hidden by the impression of free choice, against her mother's deep and long patience, against much of her own socialisation, for the space that will allow her to know her desires and direct her life towards meaning and fulfilment.

For this work, the length, the gender, the author's ethnic nationality actually corresponding to the narrated place: it makes sense when one comes across a far more popular Man Booker contestant in the author's bibliography, but that was composed afterward.
In any case, ticking off yet another behemoth that's not of the War and Peace demographic makes me think I should really take on the Sisyphean effort that is catching up on my backlog of daily email review compilations, in hopes of replenishing my stock if nothing else.
I had forgotten the days when I could blow through pages of a single book without having to gather all that up into something shorter and cognizant and my own in the aftermath.
The nice thing about actually having read Tolstoy and Evans it's been a while since Flaubert, so I won't take on that is I can comfortably side eye people's comparisons when necessary.
Soueif's epigrams may be Middlemarch , but her narrative control has at key points the coldness and closeness of The Golden Notebook , right down to her variation on the theme of political nonfiction digressive insertion into narrative fiction.
Middlemarch has that, too, but it doesn't have transcripts. I would've needed more footnotes if there hadn't been so much domestic plot, a statement which is as exactly as you win some you lose some as it sounds.
It's true that I ripped through this, smallish close set print and all, but I don't think I'll ever reread it after gaining further knowledge about all the events referenced by the narrative as current.
I chalk this up to my final quarter as an English undergrad, wherein the topics of my three final essays were suicide, mental abuse, and the education of the devil.
Specifically, the mental abuse was a type known as gaslighting, and in the case of this work, I could see the train coming pages in and had to wait another to for the fallout.
It's different with horror movies when you're screaming at the characters to run because you know the audience is, for the most part, on your side.
Considering how simplified a view the general public has of gaslighting, I doubt others will have this issue. For me, it meant taking refuge in the jargon of academia and politics when I could, a few stellar scenes such as the real time translation of Arabic oral poetry and the meditation on colonialism and the arts, as well as the general ease in which the story worked its way across the complexities of Egypt, the Middle East, and the world at large, making it worthwhile.
There's also the whole "Modern Egyptians aren't real Egyptians" spiel being laid to rest in a wonderfully lengthy and comprehensive way.
Bonus points for this book being published within my lifetime: I always enjoy that the times, they are a-changin'.

Shelves: im-emigration-post-colonial , africa. View all 6 comments. This is 3. This book was completely different from what I expected.
Instead of a sweeping family saga it promised to be, it was nearly pages of solipsist whining of a privileged young woman. Yet although I was frequently irritated out of my senses, I was never, ever bored.
Reason 1: a crucial part of the story revolves around whether the protagonist, Asya, will or will not write her Ph. Yes, I know what it sounds like, but as anyone who tried to write a Ph.
I felt an almost physical pain when she was describing writing the thesis on something her character was not interested in.
Reason 2: the details. There are some thing I wish I could unread — the depilation scenes, for instance, although I know that hair removal is a huge part of life for most Middle-Eastern women — but through amassing, and I really mean amassing , of detail Soueif managed to create a book that transports — to Egypt, Paris, Damascus, North England, London.
Reason 3: the characters. Out of the three key male figures in the novel, two turn out to be completely different than expected. The Occidental male - a white, British man - is frenetic, sexually voracious, volatile - features ascribed to black males since Renaissance; I see him as a travesty of Othello.
This book is rather a little like a Henry James novel - it is a novel about Egyptians being Egyptian outside Egypt - transplanted to a different soil, they take their conditioning, education, repressions with them, and play out their dramas far from the protective net of their families.
Things I disliked about the book apart from its sheer bulk : Complaint 1: The relationships between the sexes. I cannot, for the life of me, understand why Asya stays so long with either of the men in the novel.
Both men are telling her what to do, how to behave, what to wear, and, directly or indirectly, what she really is like.
There's something in me that shouts lazy writing, but another part in me says it's realistic. Jun 24, Marcy rated it liked it.
I wish Soueif ended the novel where I left off two days ago around page The first part of the novel, when the protagonist, Asya, is still in Egypt was far more interesting, I'm not enthralled with her story once she moves to England.
What takes up much of the novel's energy, is Asya's relationship with her husband, Saif. I like the few parts when we get to read Saif's thoughts the most.
But those become increasingly rare as the novel progresses. There are so many of the other characters w I wish Soueif ended the novel where I left off two days ago around page There are so many of the other characters whose stories drop off so that eventually the novel focuses solely on Asya and her English lover Gerald Stone, which makes me lose interest because Stone is a rather obnoxious character.
At times I felt he would become a psycho killer the way you think he's gone and then he appears in Asya's bedroom waiting for her. The men in Asya's life seem to be emotionally, if not mentally, disturbed.
But Gerald feels parasitic. You think he is finally gone, but then he reappears. The first few hundred pages the novel are quite moving.
The way Soueif writes about middle-class Egypt in the s and 70s is beautifully drawn. Also, Soueif's politics here are more compelling some of her nonfiction.
This part was also enjoyable because events surrounding Asya's life are intertwined with historical events. I like the way Asya's life is connected to the world around her.
Or when Asya and Saif are in Lebanon during the Civil War although there is a slight factual error there in that the characters are staying at the Phoenicia hotel in Beirut and she says that Israelis live in settlements 30 kilometers away, which is not possible.
One final note: there are also grammatical errors e. So where should start from?! The novel presents life between to in the middle east moving to Europe..
While on the front we see the what a heart breaking book!! But I decided to rate it as 5 because of Ahdaf that manage so cleverly to prevent me from letting this pages book down before finishing it!!

So far this book is amazing! However, my semester started before I could finish, so I'll be in suspense until December. I think it's a fantastic window into the lives of women in the contemporary Middle East, and in particular, the choices they are faced with vis-a-vis marriage, sex, and love.
It's really beautifully written, too. So now I'm finished, and I have to say, I liked this book more when I reading it this summer. I still like it very much.

I think that was the point thought. Anyway, I still highly recommend this book. Jan 03, Yasmin Sabry rated it really liked it.
I've spent 3 months reading this amazing novel. I must say i've enjoyed every single word. It's a journey through history since Abdel Nasser's days till the final days of Sadat, yet it's not a historical novel, it rather tells how people lived their day to day lives during that time with highlights on a love story that makes a person wonders Does love truely means that two persons should melt inside one being, or should each one maintain their own independence or just reach a certain point o I've spent 3 months reading this amazing novel.
Does love truely means that two persons should melt inside one being, or should each one maintain their own independence or just reach a certain point of balance?!
On a side note, knowing a lot about Ahdaf Soueif and her real family and friends, i could see some of them in the characters of the novel I could see the amazing Radwa Ashour and her struggle marrying a Palestinian I could see the ever-so-strong Laila Soueif raising her children with a husband spending most of his life in prison for a cause View 1 comment.

It deals with the maturity of a young egyptian girl belonging to the cultural elite of Cairo during the 60's and 70's. The personal plights she faces about desire, sex, love and affection during her growth are stressed by the fact that she lives abroad for a certain period of time.

She discovers through a quite nerve-wracking process that she does not identify herself with the path that her family has already designed for her.
It turns out also that she does not feel desire, affection and love at the same time. In the end it is a question of breaking the schemes and build our own personality, which is always more likely to happen when far from home.
The book is quite long and sometimes I have felt frustrated by the lack of congruence of its main characters.
However,I have stuck to it till the end, and for this reason I would rate it somewhere between 3 and 4 stars. I have taken this vast, encyclopedic, sometimes messy, and often gorgeous novel with me on train rides and excursions throughout the city, and maybe that's for the best, maybe I wouldn't have appreciated it in one extended, epic, sit-down dose.
I was genuinely sad for it to be over, and that doesn't happen really often for me with novels, as much as I read novels.

I think, through all nuance and juxtaposition and formal experimentation within bildungsroman structures, through all the breathtaking and precisely detailed landscapes Cairo, Alexandria, London, NYC among the really vivid , through the mindscapes that effortless seeming way that Ahdaf Soueif tracks an inner emotional arc through a crisis , that the humor and wit are what keep it going.

This is a particular perspective — a very educated woman raised in a relatively liberal family in Egypt, living for much of the book in England — but I feel from that perspective I learned a lot.
Souief has a knack for including just the right amount of details for readers unfamiliar with the culture and traditions of Egypt.

I don't know that I've ever read such an evocative portrayal of a submissive female although the word itself is never used. I read this very long book in about 4 days and could hardly put it down.
Feb 14, Sarah rated it it was amazing. This was incredibly powerful, so much so that at times it made me dizzy. There were two components to this coming of age story that were fascinating: first, the complex male-female relationships and the brutally accurate ups and downs of a marriage.
The second was the middle eastern setting; Soueif placed her characters against a political background, which made the novel rich and fascinating.

Depending on which mission preceded this, you will meet with either Arlon or Pellam. After a short cut scene, enter and swim upriver to the hylek grounds, staying below the surface in case of attack.
It is advisable to have an up-to-date underwater weapon, as there will be at least eight hylek barring the way.
You will have to find and use a turret to destroy a poison wall blocking the river passage. This is the only method that will clear the poison effect and allow you to proceed on the mission.
Do not swim into the green poisoned water, or you will die. Any hylek in the area of the turret should be killed first, otherwise they can disrupt your effort to use it.
After reaching the grounds at the end of the canyon, go east of the point of interest; on the bank is another turret. Use this turret to destroy another poison wall.
Aim the green crosshairs at the wiggling pots on the ground. There are more hyleks in the water in front of the turret, you should kill them first or they will attack you and give you trouble while you are trying to use the turret.
Once you have destroyed all the poison pots, the hylek chief Tochzotl will drink the potion and turn into a more powerful form.Du bist auf Cheat At Suche nach einer Übersicht über aktuelle und kommende Veröffentlichungen?
