About this book

Written by Egypt's leading feminist writer, this book reveals the underlying hypocrisy of a male-dominated religious state, and raises awareness of the insufferable predicament of women in a society.

Reader's Thoughts

Noha Hussein

من أغرب ما قرأت.. برغم ما فيها من أفكار تشبهني.. عندما كنت طفلة ذات السبع سنوات كنت أتخيل الصراع بين الخير و الشر هو الصراع بين الله و الشيطان و قدرة إنتصار كل منهم على الآخر في معارك تكمن فقط في نفسي و كنت أسمع تلك الصراعات على شكل "هاتف" يأمرني بفعل أشياء عديدة لا تخلو من روح المغامرة. و كنت أتخيل صوت الله في صوت أمي.. و كنت أخاف أمي كأني أخاف الله. أعجبت بتلك الرواية إلى حد ما.. برغم أنها أرهقتني نفسيا.. فهي تشبه تلك الكوابيس التي أعاني منها إلى حد كبير.

Buku terjemahannya saya dapat di Book Fair bulan lalu dan ceritanya sangat feminis. Menguak sisi-sisi iblis dalam seorang Imam (orang yang dipandang terpandang secara agama dan kekuasaan. Ditulis dengan bahasa yang indah dan tersirat.

As much as I wanted to like this, I just couldn't get into it. Maybe something was lost in translation, the back cover was full of glowing reviews, but I found myself not wanting to read it, bored by it. Shame.

Saya tidak dapat 'tangkap' kesemuanya, tetapi saya sukankan 'Jatuhnya Sang Imam' sebab ia memberikan saya idea tentang kemungkinan-kemungkinan nasib wanita dalam sebuah distopia negara agama. Ada satu persamaan dalam distopia, hampir semua menghalang kebebasan berpendapat, terutama yang berbeza dengan apa yang dianggap mainstream.Kata-kata saya terbatas untuk menggambarkan 'Jatuhnya Sang Imam', jadi untuk ulasan yang baik tentang novel ini bolehlah lihat pada pautan di bawah, oleh Phillip Womack,http://newhumanist.org.uk/2119/the-fa...#

selama ini gw kira Nawal El Saadawi itu cowo........

This novel is a bit difficult to understand since it was translated for an English speaking audience from the original language. It is full of imagery that is used by the author to show the paradox that is the imam's life. Sadawi writes about the religious scriptures the imam uses to justify his public and private personas. The imam abuses his position to dominate men, women and children - even to the point of believing he himself is God. Difficult read and a book that might have to be read twice for better understanding.

crazy, i didn't really get it.

A complex novel of overlapping voices & narratives. I enjoyed the variety of perspectives she presents, although I found the repeated telling of several central stories to be boring for me at times. I have read other novels of hers that were much more compelling.

I am struggling so much right now. While I tried my best to love this novel, I don't think I did. I struggled with the rating of three starts because I WANT it deserves more but I don't think it deserves a higher rating. This novel is very experimental in the way it's written to the point where it confuses the reader. It constantly shifts between third and first person perspectives of different characters in a span of one paragraph and I could never keep track of who is talking. Some of the stories being told were never completed or she would come back to them chapters later only to find that I have forgotten who these people are. However, that being said, I do believe this novel has a lot of great thought put behind it; there would be times where I would be ululating in joy because of how the novel accurately describes the dangerous mixture between patriarchy and religion. Nawal provides great insight about how patriarchal men have used religion to disempower and control women, children, and even other men. I will definitely not give up on Nawal El Saadawi because I do believe she is a power to be reckoned with so I will definitely be reading her other novels hoping that they are not as experimental or perhaps even as badly written as this one.

I read Finnish copy right after after reading The Hidden Face of Eve. El Saadawi has been one of the biggest influencer shaping my feminism.
