This is the second book of the Cairo Trilogy.
The story now is at 1920s continuing the family saga of Al-Sayyid Ahmad and his two sons, Yasin and Kamal.
However as a reader, I couldn’t get the point of the narrative of this book which reading become boring in some way. By the end of the book, the question remains unanswered: so what Mahfouz?
Lets see what happens in the final book of this trilogy.
