Barbara Isn't this book wonderful? Do you picture Gregory Peck while reading?

Sue I haven't actually started it yet. I intended to start yesterday and read part of the first page, but it ended up not a good day so I started one of those 'easy"reads that's fun for a day like that. I should probably start it tomorrow. Had a migraine today.

Anne Sue: Nice Review. In terms of that feeling of familiarity, Dd you think you may have seen the movie?


message 4: by Chrissie (new)

Chrissie Sue, I absolutely loved this book when I read it 50 years ago and then when I reread it 2 summers ago. I think I enjoyed it even more on the second reading. Harper Lee, said once that it was a story about love. I so agree. Fifty years ago I was so drawn to the racial theme that I didn't see the other as well. Or maybe one has to be older to understand people so well.

You do know about this book don't you: Scout, Atticus, and Boo.

Nice review!

Thanks Chrissie. Yes I can see it being about love as well as acceptance. I'm not aware of the other book but I'll check it out.

Anne-- Thanks. I don't know. Maybe I did, but once again it must have been a long time ago.

Glad you are enjoying it. At some point I'll have to get some ideas from you! I'm trying to read some MENA books but many aren't available to me.

Hend Thanks Sue:)
I like our conversations,your thoughts are very inspiring.
I hope u could find those books and i am glad u are interested in MENA books.
they have great book collection.


message 9: by Sue (new)

Sue Thank you Hend. I'm enjoying seeing what you are reading. I've ordered the sequel to No One Sleeps in Alexandria which was one of my favorite books last year. And I plan to read Dancing Arabs.

That would be great. I just liked that so much. I will read that again someday, though probably not soon.

I realize I misspoke in my comment above. The book I ordered, Birds of Amber, is not really a sequel to No One Sleeps in Alexandria. Instead it's a novel set in a later time in Alexandria.

Hend I have this one too:)

Wonderful! Perhaps we can read it together someday. I really hope you like Meguid's writing as much as I have.


message 14: by Hend (new)

Hend it would be great to read it together:)
