all 3 episodes in the cairo trilogy are so-so recordings of a radio program. it's not always clear who is speaking. if i hadn't paid for it i would have turned it off. maybe a recording of the book being read would be more interesting.
This one is pretty unique because it's rather an Egyptian performance than a regular audiobook.
Since I'm originally from Cairo, Egypt, it was quite nostalgic to hear the street noise, background arabic speaking and the 1919 Egyptian revolution which reminds us a lot of what is happening nowadays.
Having Omar Sharif as the narrator makes this Mahfouz masterpiece even more valuable. The Cairo Trilogy is a must-read for anyone that was born in the region. Happy to see it published on Audible.
