The Parisian or Al Barisi Read & download ↠ 6 Nd a newly tumultuous Paris He discovers that everything is fragile love turns to loss friends become enemies and everyone is looking for a place to belongIsabella Hammad delicately unpicks the tangled politics and personal tragedies of a turbulent era – the Pales. Sometimes it just seems like you ve been reading a completely different book from fellow reviewers this is the case for me here It s certainly ambitious to attempt to tell the story of the troubled foundations of the Middle East from the First World War through to the mid 1930s or so taking in the high handed behaviour of colonial powers Britain France nationalist movements and the promise of a Jewish homeland in Palestine but I struggled to engage with this as a novelThe five page character list with family alliances already indicates that the scope is huge so huge that the narrative can t stand alone and needs this prop Characters don t come to life on the page there are clunky introductions of a new person followed by extensive back story the pacing means we dither around at the beginning in Montpellier that has little to do with the rest of the story other than to introduce a kind of love affair and a horrible example of cultural racism that surely could have been handled with finesse I found the writing lacking in clarity and flow and in the sweep of history and events couldn t see any of the charactersAll that said other readers clearly have had different experiences for some reason I just didn t gel with this book

Some time towards the end of the Ottoman empire a young Palestinan boy a son of a successful textile merchant is sent to France to study medicine The journey from the city of Nablus in today s Westbank at the time a part of the empire to Montpellier in France will be his life s adventure But the time spent in France away from his family will also be a period of personal change time of emotional growing up and maturing and five years later when it is time to go home returning to his own culture will turn out to be not less challengingMeanwhile the first world war changes the shape of Europe and any country participating in the conflict Empires fall apart and new or long gone countries appear on the map Among others the Ottoman empire ceases to exist The Middle East is dreaming of freedom and independence but there is no consensus about its future shape or form It is Isabella Hammads debut novel and judging by the fact that some of the characters bear her own name it is at least in some part based on her family history It is ambitious and enormous in scope I loved observing France with Midhats eyes and it was fascinating to witness his struggle to adjust and find himself in changing circumstances I learned a lot about this period of history in the Middle East and enjoyed the debates and discussions about its making But at the same time as a reader I couldn t help the impression that perhaps it is all a bit too ambitious and that a little less might actually have been But It is only a relatively small complaint against this otherwise brilliant book
