    قصر الشوق Free read ☆ 106 قصر الشوقThis is the second book of the Cairo Trilogy that picks up approximately five years after the end of Palace Walk the previous book and covers the approximate time span from 1925 to 1927 of the life of a family living in old Cairo Egypt The previous book had ended with the tragic death of one of the sons who had shown great potential as a political leader At the beginning of this book we learn that the father of the family al Sayyid Ahmad had modified his profligate ways during the intervening five years and had abstained from adultery—but continued with partying into the night At the beginning of this book he slips back into his old ways—after all one can't live a penit

    قصر الشوق Free read ☆ 106 قصر الشوقThis second book in The Cairo Trilogy follows the family and friends of Al Sayyid Ahmad as they pick up the pieces of personal disaster and move on The grip of the patriarch over his family loosens and Egypt’s brittle social structure begins to demonstrate unexpected strengths The action starts in 1924; seven years have passed since the first book endedThis continuation I thought to be as good as Palace Walk Here Mahfouz exerts the same masterful control over the narrative Character

    قصر الشوق Free read ☆ 106 قصر الشوقOpening some years after Palace Walk this second book charts the loosening of patriarchal control in the central family even as Egypt has nominally been given independence though the British are still in control behind the scenes The focus is mainly on the men of the family Khadija and Aisha are both married with children and play only small roles though it's striking that Khadija seems to have inherited her father's will to control in her household there are some lovely comic scenes around her clashes with her mothe

    قصر الشوق Free read ☆ 106 قصر الشوقIt pales out when compared to the first volume of the trilogy The narrator spends far lesser time with the female characters And the three male characters are all obsessed with desire love or list as the case may be There are some beautiful lines all around though the only point of interest is Kamal's troubles as he discovers Darwin's evolution theory and struggles to find a place for his religious beliefs Kamal is author's alter ego and Mahfouz did go through a similar crisis which gave birth to 'Children of Alley' upon discovery that Darwin's discoveries didn't agree with Islamic theory about how the world was created

    قصر الشوق Free read ☆ 106 قصر الشوقI liked this less respect to Palace Walk the first book of the Cairo Trilogy Events start again five years after the end of Palace Walk We meet again all the members of the Al Sayyid Ahmad family except Fahmy of course and kids are grown up the two daughters are married and have children Yasin continues his dissolute life marrying and divorcing Kamal is now a teen has to decide what he wants to study falls in love for the first time and starts to compare religion and scienceThe whole story talks above all about the male characters; Amina and her daughters are only in the background We know also about their lives but pretty the whole book is dedicated to Kamal Yasin and their father Some parts were dragging above all the part dedicated to Kamal's platonic love and his inner monologues I had a hard time with this part because I couldn't relate to this perfect or naive love and his inner struggle I liked a bit when he starts to struggl

    قصر الشوق Free read ☆ 106 قصر الشوقReal Rating 35 of fiveAbout thirty years ago I worked in the Production department of Delacorte Books for Young Readers One of the many lovely side benefits of the job was the endless supply of books that floated around the place I vacuumed the Cairo Trilogy up as it appeared in the halls outside the doors of the various production managersThis story was very very dramatic Lots happens The nastiness of Ahmad to his wife Amina which we'd grown accustomed to enters a virulent phase with cold calculating musicianmistress Zanuba's appearance Barely grown son Kamal sows the seeds of his separate Westernized science and socialism based future with an act of public disobedience that I was astounded he found the courage to perform Oldest son Yasin divorced and falling into the sensual traps that a repressed hedonist isn't euipped to resist spends the book hoping and praying for an end to h
