Palace of Desire
Sep 08, 2017
The Abd-al-Jawaad family saga continues. The dictatorial father remains as feared, but the reins are beginning to loosen. Science begins to intrude upon strict religious belief; morality's binds are coming undone; western influence is becoming visible. It's Egypt's slow but steady walk to modernization. Fascinating, even if some of those long inner monologues can get a bit tedious.
