I thought everyone should read it!

I thought everyone should read it! Now I'm looking for it again! Read this book! It is miraculous! "NILE" is one of the first books that really touched me. Published by Thriftbooks. com User, 20 years ago. The "NILE" is a great book. Being the teenager I am I know how hard it is to get people to read, but this book really got to me. I was lucky and just ran across it in the library and I'm so glad I did! It is a very thick book, but it goes by really fast

I first read this book back in 1985. The characters are so full and captivating, you won't want to put the book down. What's so interesting is that in 1988 I married an Egyptian and traveled to Egypt a number of times. I always went back to what I had read in NILE and it was all factual. Such a lovely story and one that should be read by all. Back in 1985 a friend of mine had loaned it to me and when I was done I had to return it. 21 years later I am searching for it again and found it on Amazon. I can't wait to receive it so I can read it again. Enjoy.

Ms. Devine’s book "Nile" is the story of a poor Arab girl who falls in love with a golden Jewish boy in the midst of 1940’s Alexandria. It's a dangerous time of angst and passion for both the country and the couple. Hundreds of thousands of Arabs joined the Nazis in their attempt to destroy the Jewish people, so Mona’s path was not an easy one. Her Eastern superstition contrasts with Youssef’s Jewish roots and
Western civilization in the historical backdrop of the overthrow of King Faruk. The author successfully captures Eastern mysticism in her florid descriptions of Egypt, making it one of those rare novels that completely envelops you.

The Arabs have always viewed The People of the Book as more of a race than a religion, and Ms. Devine successfully captures their thought process, feelings, and lives in this epic tale.

It is not a happy novel, but it is realistic in its description of FGM and Mideastern misogyny. If you believe truth trumps political correctness and you enjoy history, this book paints a picture both beautiful and sad.
