Ayesha At LastA modern day Muslim Pride and Prejudice for a new generation of love Ayesha Shamsi has a lot going on Her dreams of being a poet have been set aside for a teaching job so she can pay off her debts to her wealthy uncle She lives with her boisterous Muslim family and is always being Ayesha At ePUB #199 reminded that her flighty younger cous I have read my way through 315 books to bring you my Top 10 Books of the Year videoNow you know that this one made the cut check out my video review to see the others You're very honestI have been told it's one of my worst ualities Ayesha is in her late twenties unmarried and works for a living cue the muted gasps of horror As a modern Muslim she walks through life with her head held high Her best friend has a live in boyfriend she teaches at a coed school andshe's lonely Very lonelyHer younger cousin Hafsa seems to have one arranged marriage proposal after another Ayesha swore to herself that she would never go that routeand yetshe finds herselfnot uite jealous but wistful Khalid recently moved with his mother to Ayesha's neighborhood He sees Ayesha every morning flying out of her house with a coffee in hand wearing a vibrant hijabKhalid is nothing if not devout thanks to the heavy hand of his mother He finds comfort in the rigors of prayer in wearing traditional clothing and even though some practices are a bitodd in the modern world ie being forbidden to touch or look at women Khalid respects and honors the old ways And yet he cannot seem to help himself when it comes to her When Khalid sneaks a peek at Ayesha in her outlandishly purple hijab on those early mornings he feels wistfulKhalid tries to brush these feelings away He has a comfortable job a few friends and a mother to run everything for him He's happy or so he thought I will find you the perfect wife modest not too educated Love often comes after marriage and his mother knows him better than anyone so surely she'd know what's best for him or so he thought It is so difficult to find a truly well trained girl these days So many modern ideas about education and careers When I was growing up a girl knew her role Despite his mother's best efforts the two of them meet and suddenly they don't feel uite so lost any However while Ayesha may be devout Kahlid is traditional And they clash Oh do they clash You have a job Khalid asked surprisedI also dress myself bathe myself drive a car and have opinions about things Ayesha said Despite Ayesha's immediate dismissal and Kahlid's immediate disregard there is somethingsomething that almost inexplicably draws them together When he looked at her he was not sure what he sawBut he was starting to feel something And that special something weaves together their stories like no otherWith the marriage proposals coming in left and right an identity theft leading to unimaginable conseuences and above all Khalid's mother's meddling how will the two them even survive Marriage is too important to leave to chance This is one for the ages I am an absolute sucker for Pride Prejudice remakes and this Muslim Canadian version is absolutely divine This was honestly my first stayed up to midnight cause I gotta find out the end book of the year Ayesha's personality was perfect as an Elizabeth strong spunky and sassyAyesha was wonderfully outspoken and yet true to her faith I loved that So many heroines seem to abandon their family and traditions in favor of adventure To me it often feels like a way to streamline the writing I adored that the author took the time and effort to create such a tight knit family and had the close relatives always weaving in and out of the story Khalid was truly an inspiring character The way he came to life within just a few short pages really set the tone for the novel Are they afraid of me Khalid wondered When Shelia looks at me what does she see I truly felt his struggle to remain true to his faith and yet adjust to a world that holds it in such little regardI feel like the media portrayal of devout Muslims is so far skewed that it is an absolute rarity to see anything without the word terrorist attached to it on the news It's horrible that without positive representation painful assumptions are made and inaccuracies are propagated as truth As for the plot it remains true to the original and yet is entirely uniue The intricacies and petty dramas between Ayesha's family and Khalid's was so incredibly fun to read I devoured every shocking reveal And the humor Oh I would be doing the book a huge disservice if I did not mention the humor It was absolutely perfect It had so many witty and dry one liners scattered in that such as Khalid's first arranged marriage meeting Did you talk to her or stare at the floor she asked lightlyIt wasn't just me Everyone was staring at the floor They had a really nice carpet All in all this book was brilliant Perfect and everything that is right with the liteary world I cannot wait for it to be published so I have an excuse to read it over and over I don't think this is the end of of the story for you With thanks to Berkley Publishing for a free copy in exchange for an honest reviewAll uotes
