The Cairo Trilogy by the Nobel Prize Winner Naguib Mahfouz. #thecairotrilogy #naguibmahfouz #ordernow #amabbooks #nationwidedelivery

This has to be one of my favorites! I don’t usually have the patience for trilogies and they hardly hold my interest through all the 900+ pages …But seriously, this one is something else ⭐ This story literally creates a world around you and you feel like you are living a parallel life as you go along... the Islamic, cultural references and Arabic history just makes it all too real – a bit too relevant. The Cairo trilogy is really the best in historical fiction, the best in literature🙌📚 A depiction of patriarchy and the way it affects the whole family, their relationships, their decisions in life and their destiny. It’s based the lives of a fictional Egyptian family in the 1950s.
that are super loveable and in an twisted way even relatable…hands up if you have read it and love it! Or would like to… 😊🤗 #bookrecommedations @penguinukbooks @vintagebooks

Palace Walk by Naguib Mahfouz, volume 1 of The Cairo Trilogy. I read Midaq Alley by Mahfouz last year and loved it so I'm really looking looking forward to this.

Where else can the appearance of beer and ham cause friction between friends and reveal so much about the characters?

Even though it's set in a very patriarchal Egypt, Palace Walk showed the perspectives of both genders, their strengths, weaknesses, hypocrisies.

But Palace of Desire took on a more male-centric inner monologue. We're mostly reading the views of Al-Sayid Ahmad, Yasim and Kamal and their at-times infuriating hypocritical or idealistic justifications. Amina, Khadija and Aisha are relegated to the background which unbalances book.

Who knows if this will be mended, I've still two hundred pages to go. I'm putting my hopes in the third book Sugar Street which hints at more Khadija and Aisha.

In any case, I'm enjoying the detailed realism and the way religion is interwoven in their daily life, in their speech and in their actions.

Aside: in the confrontation between Bahija and Yasim, she dropped so many hints about his father, I was yelling at him to notice but of course he didn't. Will he have an epiphany in the remaining hundred pages?

#TheCairoTrilogy didn't know much about this but find myself sitting on the edge of my chair in the lab. I quickly fell into the story. Not disappointed. #bookstagram #bookish #bookworm #read #books #booklover #igreads #read #bookworm #books #reading #igbooks #audiobooks #read #reader #igreads #igbooks #audiobooks #read

I think everyone has a book they call their Everest and this one happens to be one of mine - "The Cairo Trilogy" by Naguib Mahfouz. I own two copies, it's a part of my heritage, both of my parents have read it, and watched the Egyptian series that followed it, and I've owned it for over ten years. Not once have I tried to read it. I'm not sure why, but I think it's because it comes with so much expectation from me and I don't think that's fair. It's called out to me from many a bookshelves that I have owned - at my parents' house, in law school (yes, I lugged it there, actually thinking I'd have time to read anything but textbooks), and now, at my home. I have taken it off the bookshelf, plopped it onto my night table and am hoping that will encourage me to at least begin this journey. Do you have any "book Everests"? #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #books #thecairotrilogy #naguibmahfouz #mybookeverest

A lot of people arrive at #sugarstreet because it's part of Mahfouz's #magnumopus #thecairotrilogy Having read the #trilogy altogether years ago, I decided to re-read Sugar Street individually. If one is to read one of these books separately, I think it should be this one. It's a remarkable #comingofage story. In this case the coming of age of a modern and independent #egypt To make things even more dramatic and vivid, #mahfouz even assigns to each brother a different political ideology. The struggles, conspiracies and failures are ultimately lived in #family settings. Or are they not? Beyond the news headlines, social and political upheavals come and build up every day through our own discussions and relations with our family members. I think Mahfouz skillfully brings that to the front in his descriptions of #egyptian drama and traumas. This book as well as the entire trilogy are a must read. I'd love to hear if anyone has ever read this trilogy in any other order. #highlyrecommend #cairo #egyptianliterature #nobelprizewinner #nobelprizeforliterature #محفوظ #القاهرة #revolution #politicalstruggle #naguibmahfouz #الثلاثية

Bu akşamın konsepti... Hayao Miyazaki ve Necib Mahfouz'u aynı anda sevebilir miyiz? Bence evet... / Tonight's concept; can we love Hayao Miyazaki and Necib Mahfouz at the same time? Absolutely!

Still in awe! While mostly linear, with an incessantly modern feel to it, more so than my imagination and background allows to accept for a piece of work that's sixty years old, it's these excursions, take offs, flights and landings that make this an absolute joy to read! #naguibmahfouz #palacewalk #cairotrilogy #thecairotrilogy #read #reading #literature #nobelprizewinner #nobelprizeliterature #egypt #cairo #novel
