Intrigue in Egypt
Give you good view of the complex relations between Egyptians and the British . The further tensions of Women trying to throw off Patriarchal control . Interesting excellent narration of much missed Bill Wallis . My Grandfather was a staff Sergeant Saddler in the workshops in Abbassia Barracks in the late 1920's much of the story's and attitudes of the British towards the Egyptians sound pretty accurate .
great bed time listen
a good story, and very well read. the second one we have listened too. listen!
Egypt comes to life
What did you like most about The Mark of the Pasha?
Michael Pearce brings early 20th century Egypt to life with his stories about the Mamur Zapt and there is a lot of context for the current uprisings we see on the news in the summer of 2013.
Who was your favorite character and why?
The mamur zapt, Captain Owen is Welsh, and sometimes feels British and other times feels more sympathy with Egypt than Britain. He solves problems in an unorthodox way which often confounds the bureaucracy of the day.
Which character – as performed by Bill Wallis – was your favourite?
Bill Wallis reads(performs) the book well, with a gentle narrative tone, but there is clear distinction between the characters and their motivations.
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
I would not make a film of my favourite books as films seldom capture the clever narratives and nuances of character that emerge when reading a well-written book.
Any additional comments?
More of Michael Pearces books need to be made available electronically and via audible, as they have a good story combined with an historical perspective of the country through the eyes of its citizens, both temporary (British army and "advisors") and permanent (Egyptians, Copts, Armenians, etc)
