In the meantime, I can recommend Naguib Mahfouz's Palace Walk. I finished it last week and it was a great read, especially in light of Egypt's recent revolution. Completely apart from Africa I also just finished Hunger Games (in a day and half)! It was awesome! Oh and the week before that I read Whiteman by Tony Dsouza which I will be writing a review for.
This week I start the next in the Cairo trilogy series: Palace of Desire.
See you next week!
