Very enjoyable read,
This review is from: Playing Cards in Cairo (Paperback)
I wasn't sure if I should buy this book after having seen it at the bookstore more than 3 months ago, but decided it might be an interesting read for last week's Eid El Fitr vacation and it was.
It's an easy read and a real page-turner taking me nearly three days to finish. I quite enjoyed sitting around the cards' table with the gang and listening in to what was going on in the girls' heads.
It is beautifully written and gives genuine insider's views on the lives of Egyptians today.
