رغم ان الواقع مرير وقاسي الا ان نهاية دولت كانت مأساوية جدا مأساوية اكثر مأساة من الواقع الذي تعيشه
اما نهاية بقيه الشخوص في الرواية كانت طبيعيه جدا ونهاية الرواية عامة مفتوحه ممكن استمراريتها باجزاء لاحقه
ولا استبعد ان نراها قريبا على احدى الشاشتين الكبيرة او الصغيرة(less)

Ahmed Mourad still knows how to impress me. One of the best Novels i've ever read. He made me picture every single detail. It took me 4 days to finish it, but it was like i took a time machine back in time and lived in this era. ...more

again the so called genius ahmed mourad and his oh wow epic books!
what annoys me the most about him is that he's actually got true talent but insists on wasting it to commercial mass market success. in this book he had an awesome rich period of our history and a variant array of characters to create a really good book with but he preferred to go the easy lucrative way instead resulting in this pop corn book that will sell thousands of copies, have ultras of frantic fans, maybe produced in a pop

After three successful novels, Mourad decides to turn to a new genre by writing a historical novel that is no less interesting and engaging than the previous ones. In this novel, Mourad takes us in a "time machine" to the Egypt of 1919, an era when the country, especially the capital, was burning with demonstrations against the the British occupation. Mourad presents a distinguished combination of real events and imagination that captures the reader and take him to wander through the minds and h ...more

what I think ... ?!! MARVELOUS, MAGICAL maybe the only 2 words that can discribe this book. I enjoyed every single chapter, no every single page actually. Mourad, always gave me this uncomfortable feeling while reading his books maybe cause of some scenes or some words. but this book is perfectly written. he invented a special time machine to take you in a journey full of details and action and history. you can easily dive into the book and into the characters. how the characters developed throu ...more

That's how history should be taught. It has to be delivered as a point of view, characters shouldn't be divided as angels & demons. Excuses & context have to be provided & judging should be the reader's job, not the writer's. RECOMMENDED. ...more

Amazing book as usual. I love the way Ahmed Mourad digs deep into the character, that ur mind starts shaping them until they become real. The author has the ability to grasp the reader into his story that u feel u are the silent spectator watching the events in the novel as they go by.
I have to say i really loved the book, however i was confused between which characters and events were real and which were fictional but nevertheless it was an enjoyable book.

another great book, it has love, adventure, patriotism, action and history. in some parts i did had this overwhelming emotions. the way he described this time, restaurants, cafes, cloths, conversations and emotions i enjoyed this book and the only reason my rating is missing a star cause of the tragic end although it fits perfectly i just hoped for a better one.

I loved it. The author took us this time to the english colonized Egypt. The struggles of its people against the foreign invader and the local traitors are on the plate, with some inside love stories. it was a fun read.

I liked the book because it was familiar and effortless to read. My issue with it is that the storyline is very predictable - cliche almost. Some parts seem to be copied from Naguib Mahfouz's novels and movies. ...more

Anyone who says that this novel deserves a five out of five or says it has an amazing story is an absolute idiot (Excuse my language). Why? They say that because its just written by Ahmed Mourad, one of Egypt's most successful writers.

I myself am a fan of Ahmed Mourad, and I read all his novels. After I finished the Blue Elephant, I was waiting for an announcement for a new novel for this talented writer and I was excited when it was revealed.

After waiting for a huge number of days for its rele
