January: Chronicle of a Last Summer

By Yasmine El Rashidi


5/10 - I really liked learning more about life during different decades and under different rulers in Egypt. What was lacking for me was context. I understand that books don't have to provide you context, but this is a period in history that I am not familiar with and I wanted more background information than the author provided. I really liked the narrator, though, and enjoyed reading this book! It was a quick one, too!
