Aug 30, Libby rated it really liked it Shelves: This was actually a pretty short book, but it took me at least halfway through to get out of my “look up every word” mode of reading in French, plus I kept stopping and starting which took longer.
I enjoyed this fictionalized account of sxns real woman’s life–Zoulikha, a woman who joined and led one of the freedom fighter groups from the Algerian war. As in other works of Djebar that I’ve read some in English, some in Frenchthis has some beautiful imagery and disturbing imag Finally finished!
As in other works of Djebar that I’ve read some in English, some in Frenchthis has some beautiful imagery and disturbing imagery, toward the end and lyrical language. Dec 12, Nadia rated it liked it Shelves: I feel weird reviewing books not in my first language cause I can never really tell if it’s the book or if I missed some really important nuance and am being a jerk.
Regardless, this was a fast read and was pretty interesting throughout. I like her writing style and the subject and I didn’t realize till I brought this home that it came out pretty recently so I definitely will be checking out her earlier stuff as well. The book sounds more like an endless lament Too bad the style doesn’t fit most people’s taste, because the plot itself once you understand it is really catching The story is very close on the facts from which it is derived, that is noticeable.
Embedded in a novel, it serves the story well. Aug 13, Jacqueline rated it really liked it. It is so culturally interesting and alive.
