Omar Sharif leads an all-Egyptian cast in this three-part drama, recorded entirely in Egypt's capital. Adapted from Naguib Mahfouz's novels, this is a gripping family saga, with a monstrous father, a loving mother, and four children. It is set in seductive Cairo from 1917 to 1953, against a backdrop of political upheaval.More

it was boring
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.
