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

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

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?

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

I read Palace Walk (part one of the trilogy) last year after finding it at a bookfair. This year, at the same bookfair, I found parts two and three within the first ten minutes of the opening (yeah, I arrived early and queued for the opening because I'm very competitive about bookfairs). It was so damn exhilarating.

Even better was that there were no Part I in sight, like they were passed over last year and just waiting for me this year.

This series revolves around the daily lives of an Egyptian family as Egypt is fighting for its independence. It's so steeped in Egyptian culture, it's fascinating and so different from books I read before bookfairs and LibraryThing.

Ignoring its hokey translated titles, even after only reading the first book and starting on the second, I highly recommend this author.

So I refilled my Home with these #books
#thecairotrilogy #thesatanicverses and Alapata Apata by prof #wolesoyinka
The reaction I got from the #bookseller for the #SalmanRushdie book was quite cinematic.. Then I picked the Wole Soyinka's book with a girlish delight on my face and the bookseller envied me- like I was some kind of bad boy with an alter ego that will burst out in satanic laughter without notice!

@amabbooks mailed the Naguib Mahfouz collection to my doorstep, before Ramadan. Knowing I could not read them yet, I would caress them, their smooth paper back feels quite crisply like a crisply bun that promises mouthwatering delight... So, which should I read first? Any advises or recommendations particularly for my sojourn into the satanic verses?

The publication of The Satanic Verses in September 1988 caused immediate controversy in the Islamic world because of what was seen by some to be an irreverent depiction of
Muhammad . The title refers to a disputed Muslim tradition that is related in the book. According to this tradition, Muhammad (Mahound in the book) added verses (Ayah ) to the Qur'an accepting three goddesses who used to be worshipped in Mecca as divine beings. According to the legend, Muhammad later revoked the verses, saying the devil tempted him to utter these lines to appease the Meccans (hence the "Satanic" verses). However, the narrator reveals to the reader that these disputed verses were actually from the mouth of the Archangel Gibreel.
The book was banned in many countries with large Muslim communities. (13 total: Iran, India, Bangladesh, Sudan, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Kenya, Thailand, Tanzania, Indonesia, Singapore, Venezuela, and Pakistan.) #bookishness #homeofbooks #book #reader #read #bookstagram #bookporn #bookchallenge #postramadan #booktube #booktour #nobelprizewinner
