    This book has been a surprise I was into unknown territory as this was a Rakhi gift Thanks Drashya However the author's life amazes me She has such a strong backbone This read has been captivating in that this extraordinary woman exemplifies the very act of being alive in a society where she isn't paid her dues But she does not give up And this had made for an incredible journey I would definitely recommend reading this book

  2. Claire Claire says:

    This book was written for Egyptians who would know the history that forms its backdrop Without that I was a bit disoriented at times As with most historical books though that disorientation is a prompt to learn a historyThe narration is non linear thematic So times are revisited and we move in and out of stages of marriage and divorceof being a doctor and leaving medicine for writing Sometimes it is hard to know where we are chronologically It is the sort of book that re reading the beginning after knowing the ending sometimes clarifiesThe writing is poetic the people vivid It is a book I feel like reading again It is also a book where one has to attend to what is not said about prison about her first marriages about exile

  3. Victoria Victoria says:

    this book is translated into English from Arabic and as such is a little frustrating with many many phrases being repeated over and over in the book however the life of this woman is an amazing tribute to women's struggles in her part of the world Egypt she has certainly led a full life and one which is much frowned upon in many parts of the world

    🎋Cada libro tiene un momento idóneo para ser leído Cada día ue pasa lo tengo más claroHay libros ue llegan a nosotros antes de tiempo y aún no podemos comprender todo lo ue esconden Otros llegan demasiado tarde y desearíamos haberlos leído bastantes años antes Hay libros ue llegan en un mal momento y se ven eclipsados por la situación ue estamos atravesando Otros llegan en el momento perfecto y no los podemos soltar hasta llegar al punto finalEs algo complicado no os vayáis a pensar y no siempre se consigue encontrar el momento idóneo🎋En este caso no era su momento o eso uiero pensar Me da pena ue este libro de Nawal el Saadawi haya pasado por mí de esta manera y por eso prefiero pensar ue no era el momento idóneo Tal vez me euivoue no lo sé En un futuro me gustaría darle otra oportunidad y comprobar si realmente influyó el momento o es el libro en sí🎋‘Prueba de fuego’ ha sido una lectura llena de altibajos Comencé la lectura con muchas ganas Estaba deseando leer más obras de la autora y uería conocerla mejor Esas ganas se fueron desvaneciendo a medida ue la lectura avanzaba y regresaron cuando ya estaba llegando al final Considero ue ya era demasiado tarde Por el camino me había aburrido me había perdido y había leído por leer Por el camino me había encontrado con episodios de su vida ue me parecieron fascinantes y ue uería ue siguiera hablando de ellos Por desgracia también me encontré con episodios ue me apetecía leer en diagonal ue me dejaron fría ue me hicieron perder el interés y ue uería ue se terminaran🎋Esto me ha entristecido porue como os he dicho hace unas semanas para mí la autora era una apuesta segura Consideraba ue con ella no había fallo y me da pena ue en realidad no haya sido así ‘Prueba de fuego’ no era el libro ue pretendía leer de la autora Cambié de opción por puro instinto y esta vez me euivoué Mi instinto me jugó una mala pasada y espero ue mi próxima lectura de la autora me deje mejor sabor de boca
