    Paperback à عمارة يعقوبيان Epub ´ عمارة download, يعقوبيان book, عمارة يعقوبيان PDF/EPUBDispiriting I nearly tossed this into the nearest patch of long grass as I got so thoroughly sick of the descriptions of boobs and buttocks so impatient with the fact that ALL the women fell into only two categories young and therefore luscious and desirable or old and therefore no longer desirable Worst of all is old and skinny and yes it says a LOT about me that I'm particularly sensitive to this because old and skinny means you turn into a screeching termagant Somebody better warn my husband what do you mean too late? HOW DARE YOU I'LL HAVE YOUR GUTS FOR GARTERS Old and chunky on the other hand means you're at least allowed to be motherly sorry grandmotherly Even towards men who are older than you So that puts me on a strict regime of chocolate ice cream cream cake and biscuits and NO SPORT There is an awful lot of sex in this book

    Paperback à عمارة يعقوبيان Epub ´ عمارة download, يعقوبيان book, عمارة يعقوبيان PDF/EPUBI've read this book twice now Once before coming to Egypt and again this summer having lived in Egypt for two yearsThe first time I read it I truly believed that the situations that happened within it were exaggerated for artistic license Now? It's all true No artistic license needed Just straight forward truth I see so many of these things happening and many besidesAl Aswany's depiction of Egyptian life his clever way of writing about Egypt's elite and corrupt making sure readers in the know know who he is on about without actually naming names is superb As I read page after page I recognised the some of the unnamed and the named areas the hang outs the streets I couldn't believe how much I enjoyed the book and was deeply saddened by it It also felt as though I was reading a completely different book The image I had in my head after reading it the first time was that it was 'nus nus' 50 50 of reality and fiction now it's 'maya maya' 100% Egyptian lifeI am surprise

Oh my It has interesting insight into relationships of all kinds homosexual men in a society that may look the other way if they like you enough women who marry to support their families and the rights of children after the death of a parentAt rare and exceptional moments Souad Gaber appears as she really is A look suddenly flashes from her eyes like a spark and her face recovers its original appearance exactly as an actor returns to his own character on finishing a role takes off his costume and wipes the makeup o

    Paperback à عمارة يعقوبيان Epub ´ عمارة download, يعقوبيان book, عمارة يعقوبيان PDF/EPUBEgypt is in the news today for all the wrong reasons But when I witness the turmoil there I perceive a silver lining this is the birth pain of a true democracyI have had a lifelong love affair with Egypt ever since I studied about pharaohs and the pyramids and hieroglyphics in middle school I have seen the similarity with India the paradox of being immensely rich culturally and dirt poor monetarily Visiting the country had been my secret dream which was realised three years agoI read this novel before visiting Egypt and after my visit I could only marvel at how Aswany has succeeded in bringing the multifaceted country under one roof that of the Yacoubian building Capturing the macrocosm in the microcosm when done by gifted writers produces wondersI am increasing my rating from 3 to 4 stars on second thoughtsI pray the events in Egypt for all the tragedy and angst end on a positive

    Paperback à عمارة يعقوبيان Epub ´ عمارة download, يعقوبيان book, عمارة يعقوبيان PDF/EPUBI guess Alaa Al Aswany owes some to Naguib MahfouzI could recognize the Cairo I visited many years ago and even as a stranger in a strange city it gave me a warm feelingConsidering the melting pot Cairo is it is not at all strange to find a house with a number of so diverse inhabitants but Alaa Al Aswany uses it as an instructor would use the scene presenting a time when everything you used to know is breaking up and yet unchangedThere is a lot of love for his countrymen but also political skepticism and analysis bringing out that there are no beds of roses

    Paperback à عمارة يعقوبيان Epub ´ عمارة download, يعقوبيان book, عمارة يعقوبيان PDF/EPUBThis book was a lot better than I expected and managed to narrate a lot of extremely difficult and taboo topics in accordance with EgyptianIslamic norms without passing judgement or creating cartoonishly evil characters Even the characters one finds abhorrent are genuinely sympathetic It helped me understand views and perspectives completely alien to me and gave me a slightly better understanding of Egyptian society Also somewhat entertaining

    Paperback à عمارة يعقوبيان Epub ´ عمارة download, يعقوبيان book, عمارة يعقوبيان PDF/EPUBI enjoyed reading The Yacoubian Building but I can't resist analyzing its weaknessesThe premise of The Yacoubian Building is a credible one I did not sense that the setting of the story the placement of a varied selection of individuals in close proximity with one another all residents in one building is merely fictional license The novel is a frank representative depiction of contemporary Egyptian urban settings with enough historical and cultural background to explain the finer details of each character’s history and motivationsYet there is something missing in this tapestry In this group portrait the intertwining of the separate threads although executed in vibrant and expressive strokes seems to have been draw
