I never knew Dawn of Conscience was translated to Arabic, it's a pitty that very few people around the world realize that this book even existed. Is the arabic version good?

Egyptian Bet said...

just WOW for this book
never finished it though, but yeah the arabic version is good

it's shameful that an American would have this kind of passion for our history, while we lack that passion for it.

Seneferu said...

Aha...comments! lol

Yes it was Mohamed, if it was done by Selim Hassan then I presume this was a while back. The arabic edition was made available in Suzy's qira'a lil gamee3 program, poor print quality but very affordable prices which we should be thankful for.

You guys should enlarge the picture and look at the amazing statue. Bet, do you see the resemblance?

Mohamed said...

I have no idea what resemblance you're talking about Seneferu, but I enlarged the picture and the thing that instantly hit me was that this guy's must be 3adel Emam's long lost twin brother.

Seneferu said...

Adel Imam hmm...you are good at finding these things:) I meant to say that he looks like any Egyptian you would walk across in the street. Adel Imam would do.

Leilouta said...

Mubarek's son, Ahmez Zaki, SM would do too :)

Seneferu said...

lol, really SM?

(this may be one of the most inverifiable word verfication signs I got so far: a v followed by a w or vice versa, where the w is in the shape of two v's. Which one is it...)

Egyptian Bet said...

Seneferu

yeah I do see the resemblance, I think it's really cool.
I just checked my book, it's got a different cover and it costs 3 pounds, mamma Suzy shokran leeky ana ba7ebek awi Muah :x lol

I didn't get the "v followed by a w"?!

Seneferu said...

lol@bet

Leilouta said...

I didn't get it either at first:)
I am slowvwvwwwvvvvvvwwvvvwwwvwvwvww
:-p

Mohamed said...

Damn it Seneferu, this book cover is haunting me now, you're absolutely right, he looks like 99% of egytians and the scary thing here is that this means that all egyptians look like each other.

Seneferu said...

:-D The spacing of the picture also makes him look like a floating buddhist monk.

Seneferu said...

Leilouta, I think blogger is messing with us on purpose lol.That sign also had the word "crazy" in it.

Egyptian Bet said...

seneferu, I give up, Leilouta says she's slow but at least she got it, I still haven't :(
what's with the v & w?? it's driving me crazy lol. something on her blog?

Seneferu said...

Bet, it was one of those word verification signs that you fill to write a comment..it was particularly hard to read.

Egyptian Bet said...

oh got it :)
