This is the first novel by a woman in Oman to be translated into English and it won the International Booker Prize I learned a lot about Oman s history and traditions in the background but most of the story is about multiple generations in the village of al AwafiThis book kept sending me on rabbit holes to learn about Omani food so yes I did sacrifice one of my remaining cups of flour to try making khubz ragag which doesn t work in a non stick pan so I ended up with flat bread It s fine I did randomly have date syrup and apricot paste on hand so it made a tasty snack

review سيدات القمر

سيدات القمر

characters ´ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ✓ Jokha Alharthi سيدات القمر Free read ☆ 0 Ies their losses and loves unspool beautifully against a backdrop of a rapidly changing Oman a country evolving from a traditional slave owning society into its complex present Through the sisters we glimpse a society in all its degrees from the very poorest of the local slave families. Spanning decades Celestial Bodies explores the hopes and frustrations of three generations of a wealthy Omani family The book s chapters alternate between the perspective of a husband who s married into the family and that of an omniscient narrator who takes a kaleidoscopic look at the inner lives of the members of the household There s not a single narrative thread tying everything together but Alharthi consistently contrasts characters differing conceptions of love womanhood and masculinity The book s too short for any of the cast to be fully developed and the translation often comes across as stiff but the novel takes an interesting if brief look at the recent history of Oman through the lens of one family s struggles

Winner of the Man Booker International Prize 2019I am a little unsure what to make of this oneI knew very little of Oman and its history so that side of it was uite interesting and some of the stories were uite moving but overall it seemed to lack direction and although the component stories are all part of a wider family story stretching over several generations the organisation seems a bit random which made it rather confusing The family tree at the start didn t help much too many crossed linesOverall I did get a sense of ordinary lives struggling with a culture in which ancient traditions and modern society are juxtaposed and the female characters are strong Worth reading but probably not a contender for the prize I read this book and wrote this review a couple of days before the MBI shortlist was announced so before my personal favourite The Faculty of Dreams was eliminated This book s win was still a little surprising to me but I suspect I underrated its appeal and some of the other shortlisted books are confrontational
