Hmmmm.. How shall I start..

It's good, no doubt, in terms of creativity and evolution of events. I totally loved the creativity of the idea. Ahmed Mourad did an incredible effort researching and preparing for it. Diamond Dust. I bet no one who had read this novel didn't google about diamond dust! :D Found no satisfying results though, just like Taha stated! (Taha: the protagonist of the novel)

Another interesting thing about it was the idea of taking justice into one's own hand and justifying

that was amazing! the first pages was slow to read. it took me one day to read 85 pages. and another 1 day to finish the whole book! in a moment the story becomes very exciting and takes a totally different way. I loved the author's style. he's one of my favs. now! :)

I would recommend this book to those who love crime books. It is a quick read and very interesting. I only gave it 3 stars cause I wasn't crazy about it.
The story was well-built but there were parts that I got confused and couldn't totally understand what the author was meaning to say.
Taha is the main protagonist, liked his character, how his father's death/murder completely turned his life upside down, from being a so typical pharmacist to the killer who wanted to avenge his father's death. I

"أظلم الاوقات فى تاريخ الامم هى الاوقات التى يؤمن فيها الانسان بان الشر هى الطريق الوحيد للخير "
It is amazing! Main theme is same as in " Crime and Punishment" well done and perfectly reflecting political and social life in Egypt starting 1954 till now..

I guess this quote, by Taha's aunt, perfectly describe how it is like to think this way.. Raskolnikov in 'Crime and Punishment" or Taha and his father>>

" كان فاكر نفسه نوح... ما كانش عارف ان نوح مش هو اللى انتقم"

This theme has always

After reading this book, I find it difficult to start reading any other book! It's become my best book of all times! Ahmed Mourad is just an amazing writer! I love his language, his style, his description of setting and characters, his unprecedented sense of humour, everything! The central character in this book is Taha, a 30-year-old medical rep who works for a medical company as well as in a pharmacy. His life has been monotonous since his father got paralyzed and his mother left home when he ...more

I read alot of English books and arabic too, English books always impresses me with new ideas and new writing styles while Arabic books is totally the opposite.

but this book is good and it impressed me alot that I actually enjoyed it and finish in a very short time, it is a mix of drama,romance,comedy and mystery .

i got 5 recommendations on this book but when i read it, it is really poor filled with too much not needed sexual expressions and all what would sell but the story it self is poor and the writer is much worried of all the slogans and curses that are told in the street.

I liked it. It 'll make you smile, laugh and engage with the characters feelings. But I feel it is for boys as it speaks from the prospective of some men (I don't know if they are few or a lot but I'm not one of them).
I laughed a lot as I found the style is new for me.

I liked the novel but not that much....

I liked how he mixes the proper Arabic with the Egyptian slang

I LOVED the relationship between Taha and Sarah and how Taha is always confused and disturbed when she is around.

I did not like the end as I guess it would be better if the Taha has been punished for his crimes as he is still a murderer.

I guess the author is developing and he is doing it right

eventually I enjoyed that two days I spent in reading this novel

As a matter of fact i didn't like how the writer presented revenge and murder as the only way to justice in our country, its not realistic to see so.
he presented killing to be an easy thing that the characters do many times and sometimes with no hesitation, its just not right, we talk a long time to decide to buy a piece of clothes what about killing.

A new interesting writing style for an Egyptian writer.. I enjoyed it, with all the surprises, details and different emotions in the book.
The moral conflict with in the lead character, made it worthy 2 read even more .

great!but just not convinced by how he didn't show any signs of guilt while killing any of those he killed, and how the author justified killing people in order to place justice in order !people shouldn't get away with killing other for any reason !

nice one ... good sequence of that kind that makes the book stick to your hand until you finish it ... it raises that moral question whether "killing" is a sin along the way or it can be a tool in service of humanity !!!

An epic thriller and a way new theme in arabic novel as I may assume .If there're others then I am not good as I think :D . I enjoyed every second reading it that's why I am giving it the highest rating .
