|and ofc the arabic is very good too, written so well Mixed impression||The writer was very audacious and spoke about many taboos or aspects considered too religious for any writer to talk about, namely the non Sunni Muslim sects|
|Setting off a series of catastrophic about turns, the Sheik is forced to confront and atone not only the haunting ghosts of his past but also question the very foundation of his belief|
The author is an Egyptian journalist and tv personality and has had his own run-ins with state security.
|Egyptian cultural and religious dualism||it may be unfair to compare, but this work is the closets of the contemporary to Naguib Mahfouz's and to international fiction standards|
|Nonetheless, Essa's novel serves as a more serious examination of the collective power of religion in the modern world and the critical importance of always questioning what we decide to place our faith in||An interesting book I would say|
