    Paperback☆ بين القصرين Epub ↠ بين free, القصرين kindle, بين القصرين EpubThe Palace Walk by Naguib Mahfouz is by far the best work of fiction that I have read this year and is now one of my top ten favourite novels The Palace Walk is the first volume of “The Cairo Trilogy” It centers on the life of an Egyptian Muslim family living through the period between the end of World War I and the beginning of the 1919 revolution against British rule a time of dramatic change in Egypt The novel is an engrossing story of epic proportions Each character is examined individually and as a cog in the machine of this interesting Muslim family There is the patriarchal father that rules with an iron fist the mother who has not left her house in over two decades and male and female children all with their own dreams who have to conform to a ruthless father and a hypocritical society Just as you are really getting to know the Ahmad family the novel t

    Paperback☆ بين القصرين Epub ↠ بين free, القصرين kindle, بين القصرين Epub She told him frankly that he was excessively conservative in his treatment of his family It was abnormal When I started reading this I was immediately reminded of nineteenth century classics such as Middlemarch or Trollope's Palliser Novels a story where 'the marriage plot' is supreme and where an extended family's dramas play out against a background of political change But reading the introduction after I'd finished I see that Mahfouz himself cites The Forsyte Saga as one of his influences a series I haven't yet read but I have seen the TV miniseries and that's illuminating since those books chart the final throes of a late Victorian middle class patriarch and his family's move into modernity It's an apposite model for this book only here the story is doubly fascinating for the insight into an Egyptian family in Cairo in the last years of both WW1 and the British Protectorate I see from the reviews that many people loathe the father Ahmad Abd al Jawad fo
