بالنسبة لفوضى الحواس رأيي إن الكاتبة تمثل شعوبنا العربية اللى تزوجت زواجاً كاثوليكياً بالسلطة العسكرية و بقى حكم الجيوش أمر لابد منه و قدام الناس و قدام الشرع ده جواز شرعى يرضى عنه الله و الرسول لكن فى الواقع لا هو جواز شرعى ولا يرضى الله و هو إغتصاب بقى حق مكتسب و شعوبنا تشتاق للحرية ,للحب ,للإختيار الحر و لو لاحظتى إنها أغرتها شخصية الصحفى اللى بيعبر بصدق و بيرفض البطش العسكرى و البطش الدينى و ممكن نقول إنها أحبت الحرية أو صورة من صورها بدل ما نشخصن الفكرة ,,فهنا يبقى التوق و السعى للحرية خيانة ؟؟ لا أظن(less)

This is a strange but beautiful book. It's not a "light" read and while the storyline is interesting enough, it's all the small yet profound observations that make this book a winner. I can see why now, Ahlem Mostaghnemi is a celebrated Arab writer. Considering this is a translation of her Arabic work, it's been done masterfully.

If you like to ponder big questions and like to see a meaning behind everything that happens, if you like to philosophise over life, this is the book for you.

Thank you

One of the best daring Arabic piece of literature ever written by such talented "female" writer.

Ahlem Mosteghanemi’s Chaos of the Senses is the second instalment in an award – winning trilogy that cemented her reputation as the bestselling female author in the Arab world and a bona fide literary phenomenon. Set in the early 1990s at Algeria, which was being rocked by relentless political upheavals and mindless violence, the novel tackles the immortal themes of love and death, somehow infusing it with freshness and a robust heartiness.
Hayat, the daughter of a war hero and wife of a high –

A very beautiful and moving story of a relationship between a literary -oriented female writer and a man who is extracted from her delusional imagination . Certainly ,It was the first Arabic novel i've read in years . <3

"A kiss so beautiful you wish you would die"
The main character is Hayat a writer in Constantine, Algeria, a beautiful city joined by an amazing topography and beautiful bridges. As a woman of this city she has to be careful about going to films on her own, coffee houses are just for men, seating beside a male in a car makes tongues wag, buying cigarettes is not respectful for a woman; a place where the most innocent of trysts could bring dishonour or worst, in this society she writes about love

I did it! I finished it! My first Arabic book! This is an accomplishment!

Bored at Work? Review Time!

Well! What can I say? It's true, this book was very difficult for me to read. The last arabic books I read was my literature book in school and that was written in big block letters and was pretty simple.
Not only did I find some difficulty in the wording, but the story itself was set in war torn politically riled Algeria, which I have absolutely no clue about.

But, that all did not matter, becaus

This book is the second part of A memory of a body, Shall I say I was shocked? but in a good way, well it's about a writer who fid herself living a life that she wrote five years ago about a woman who loved a manand his friend, but atthe end she married someone else who dosen't anything about love just the way we spell it.
My thoughts about this is book are quite impressive, I got the chance to get to know or to see love with a diffrent poit of view. Love is not toching, sleeping with someone our

I hate the idea of glorifying a woman cheated on her husband without even feeling guilty. well, regardless of the religion point of view, it's absolutely against ethics and any personal values.love is purer than a sexual relationship in under suspicion apartments .if she doesn't respect the family she was raised by or the husband she is living with , at least she should respect her body and do not mistreat it under the name of "love" or "freedom" . unfortunately the term freedom always used to j ...more

Thanks to goodreads for a free copy of this book.
Chaos of the Senses is a beautifully written novel with powerful themes of love and death. The main character is an female Algerian writer. The novel starts with a story that she is working on, a very important story; the line between real life and fiction blurs as she becomes involved with the male character in her story.
The author does a wonderful job of establishing a chaotic, desperate atmosphere. However, I found myself confused as to what w

I won this book through Goodreads/author for review. This book was actually a bit confusing. It seemed to jump around which I didn't like at all because it obviously makes it hard to follow the book and where exactly it's going. The characters were also very strange and just not in an intriguing way that I usually enjoy. That's all I can say because I only read up to twenty pages before I gave up.

I WAS SHOCKED WHILE READING THE SECOND PART OF THE TRIOLOGY WHERE THE WRITER WROTE FROM HER OWN PRESPECTIVE NOT FROM THE MAIN CHARACTER(KHALED BEN TOBAL)PRESPECTIVE, IT WAS DEVASTATING FOR ME AND I COULDNT FEEL THE DEPTH OF EMOTIONS AS I HAD IN THE PREVIOUS PART,I THINK I GAVE 3 STARS FOR THE HISTORIC INFORMATION AND THE QUOTES WHICH ARE MASTERED BY AHLAM.

A beautiful continuation to Memory in the flesh. If you have read any of Ahlam's work then you will know there is no need to praise her as her work speaks for itself. She is a literature genius and a player on words which entices you to read her books over and over again to understand the author more rather than the characters as you will be no longer interested in them.

The prose was poetic. The plot meandered through memory and present. Beautifully translated... My one pet peeve is the way the word "Manhood" was being thrown around. I found "Masculinity" a more subtle replacement.

That book is a piece of art. I liked how you can never guess what's gonna happen no matter how smart you are. Also the fact that she talks about politics so perfectly without being a politician. Bref, She knows what she's doing.

It sounds very naive in the beginning .. then it gradually improves on you till you're amazed. She definitely uses her tools well .. You're confused which is real and which is not .. Her language is very passionate .. thoughtful reflections ..
but lacks a certain depth into life, in my opinion.

the second novel i read by her. i didn't like it or enjoy that much. took longer than it should to finish because i was reading it just to finish it & get it out of the way. Thakirat Al-Jasad was much better in terms of the story, style & language.

That was one complicated book.

It gave me a weird mood,but I learned some stuffs.
Maybe I will read it again and try to not get too lost in the first chaos it gave me.

“سـ تتعلمين كيف تتخلين كل مرة عن شيء منك ..
كيف تتركين كل مرة أحداً .. أو مبدأ .. أو حلماً .. !
نحن نأتي الحياة كـ من ينقل أثاثه و أشياءه ..
محملين بـ المباديء .. مثقلين بـ الأحلام ..
محوطين بـ الأهل و الأصدقاء ..
ثم كلما تقدم بنا السفر ..
فقدنا شيئاً .. و تركنا خلفنا أحداً ..
لـ يبقى لنا في النهاية ما نعتقده الأهم .. !
و الذي أصبح كذلك .. لـ أنه تسلق سلم الأهميات ..
بعدما فقدنا ما كان منه أهم .. !!”
