A great big headline to catch some attention, because everyone likes attention

So you understand the roaring wave of fear that swept through the greatest city in the world just as Monday was dawning--the stream of flight rising swiftly to a torrent, lashing in a foaming tumult round the railway stations, banked up into a horrible struggle about the shipping in the Thames, and hurrying by every available channel northward and eastward. By ten o'clock the police organisation, and by midday even the railway organisations, were losing coherency, losing shape and efficiency, guttering, softening, running at last in that swift liquefaction of the social body.

I wasn’t honestly a big fan of this book. It was just a little too cliche for me to read. I loved that in the end Hafsa got a little bit of a reality check and she realized that she got a consequence for all of her actions. I hated the lack of miscommunication that came with this book. There…

Hey, again readers! I completed the novel Ayesha at Last. The most prominent part of the ending for me was when Khalid broke up with Hafsa and said they were not going to get married because he didn’t love her. This was HUGE for the development of the book because while you are reading this book it seems as if Khalid…

Book club response one

Hey readers!

 

I read the book Ayesha at Last. In the beginning of this novel Ayesha’s cousin Hafsa has a rich family and she turns to her parents for her money and different job inquiries. She decides she wants to be a event planner. So her dad puts her in charge of planning the Mosques get together to raise enough money to save the Mosque. She asks Ayesha to take her place for the planning meetings. At this meeting she meets Khalid and initially does not  like him. But as the book progresses they fall in love. Our group is up to reading the part when Khalid admits he loves Ayesha and thinks that he is marrying her because he has known her as Hafsa this whole time but he is actually arranged to marry the real Hafsa, Ayeshas cousin. He just found out at the engagement party and is devastated he isn’t marrying who he thought he was. I think the biggest message I can see being build is that honesty is the best policy. Everyone is mad or hurt because of dishonesty right now and it could have been solved by just being honest with each other.

The author of my book is Uzma Jalaluddin. She is a Canadian Muslim who writes a column for the Toronto Star called “Samosas and Maple Syrup.” Ayesha at last was her debut novel and she has been greatly praised for it and it’s likeness to Pride and Prejudice. She has always loved Pride and Prejudice since she read it for the first time in highschool. She wanted to take a leap of faith and write her own adaptation of it. She thinks it is important for people to have that different taste of culture and thinks that it is awesome that people are spreading to see new horizons.

This book was pretty easy to predict what was going to happen for the most part. I have read Pride and Prejudice and loved it and this book followed the outline very similarly. When I read what happened to Hafsa going with Tarek and eventually being sold on a Hidden hotties porn website I was shocked to be honest I was confused.  I didn’t recall this happening in the original Pride and Prejudice. But, I soon remembered that Elizabeth’s sister Lydia did the same kind of thing and ran away with a soldier.
