Cairo Modern

Click for availability and more information Cairo Modern, by Naguib Mahfouz
This novel is very fascinating. The main character is a sworn nihilist; he experiences a shift of ideologies. He grows a heart and feels emotions as a result of a sudden forced involvement with Ishan; a girl from the university whom he had always coveted. The main character becomes a hypocrite and enjoys the "high societal life." His ambitions grow larger, and then losses it all in one vengeful blow from a neighbor. Based in the 1930's, Cairo Modern is an intriguing read. You won't be able to put the book down. Some of the character's 180 degree life changes, as well as a 360 change of the main character will keep you nail biting!
