A Good Land

Review A Good Land A Good Land Review Ü 2 The highly anticipated novel from the author of ‘Dreams of Water’ and ‘Somewhere Home’The old neighbourhood block in Beirut was home to an ever changing population as the fighting intensified and lessened But three people were almost always thereThe older Polish woman Margo refugee from her past her country and family after another war spinning her tales of freedom fighters itinerant peoples despair and courage And Lebanese born and bred. We re all in the same boat waiting for a chance to go back home Set in 2005 downtown Beirut Nada Jarrar s third novel invites the reader to join the characters uest for belonging and their search for hope and certainty in a turbulent Lebanon While echoing many universal diasporic themes A Good Land sheds light on the diasporic representation and idea of home According to the epigram by Viktor Frankl at the beginning of the novel For the meaning of life differs from man to man from day to day and from hour to hour What matters therefore is not the meaning of life in general but rather the specific meaning of a person s life at a given moment Similar to the meaning of life the meaning or the idea of home reformulates from one person to the other It is not a physical place with four walls and a roof nor is it a geographical patch on planet Earth It is a moment in one s life where everything fits so perfectly that she can step away from it at that precise moment and feel the content of a person admiring a jigsaw puzzle that they have just completed In that sense it s only logical to assume that we are all in exile until we reach that moment of metaphoric belonging in our livesThe genius and innovation of this novel is represented through the author s choice of characters Belonging to different generations national backgrounds and religions they all suffer from different types of exile country family past and they all represent very different periods of Lebanon as well as the unity in its people despite their differences Just like a time machine this novel will take you on a ride through time and space with multiple shifts in perspective which might seem like a disoriented patched up mix of stories with obvious plot holes to some people but the savoring reader will pick up on the subtle ways in which Jarrar connects the events and ties up loose endingsJarrar s exuisite blend of simple and rich language paints vivid pictures of her beloved Lebanon for the reader can almost picture the mountains smell the coffee and taste the olive oil She seasons the novel with Arabic words to a degree of aesthetic perfection that keeps the reader reminded of the novel s setting Overall I think that this nostalgic novel is so beautifully written that its brilliant imagery leaves the readers with their heads slightly slanted and their minds enchanted

Review A Good Land

Review A Good Land A Good Land Review Ü 2 Layla only recently returned from Australia after fleeing the earlier civil war to teach her students again Palestinian Kamal; refugee writer and lecturer whose cherished faith in a free tolerant democratic Lebanon has been shattered by difficulties of living there now Among their friends are older politicians university friends often visiting from lucrative posts in Europe or the USA and local political activistsThe retaliation raids by Israel. I really liked this book about a Lebanese woman named Layla who moves back to Beirut from Australia a move her family can not understand but she misses it too much She forms two close relationships with two fellow apartment residents Margo and Kamal The novel brings out her strong connection to Beirut despite its instability and the close relationships between these three friends A very satisfying book

Review A Good Land A Good Land Review Ü 2 And the political aftermath further shatter their community some flee to the mountains many leave the country Some like Layla try to identify deeply what it is that holds her to this place why she cannot leaveNada Awar Jarrar has written a powerful and moving novel full of character and insight of joy and tears which makes us understand how people can stand such daily fear of violence and can continue to have faith in the country of their heart. I completely enjoyed this book because it let me travel to the new country Lebanon and exposed me to a new culture well to be absolutely frank not completely new as I have found many common points between descriptions of Beirut before the civil war and Istanbul as here in Turkey we all use labneh for breakfast and have coffee additictionsThis novel is about love to the country through three different stories of people not only from different cultures but different nations genders and different religions It is all about unconditional love though difficulties and even warWhen I was reading I was rememebering my native country Ukraine and on going war there as several years ago nobody were even in worst nightmare was thinking about such conditions The narration is so comfort and so food for thought giving that I am definitely recommending it to read do not mind rather low rating here on goodreads You will become another person after you will finish this novel I promise
