I like reading books about life in different countries and this book really did do that justice It gives you a good impression of how people go about their lives in Lebanon amidst the bombings and volatile war situations If you want to read this book for the romance between Maya and James, it was a big let down because I found it very shallow At the same time I wonder if it is a true reflection

gold diggers I really couldn t take James seriously because he was just as shallow as Maya was and that is not qualities you expect in the hero heroin of a book Infact, the protagonists being so lust and money driven was sadder than people dying.Also I couldn t care much for the whole pop video directing which takes up a lot of the book.The really touching part of the book was the political side of it in the Palestinian refugee storyline about Aisha It really tugs at your heart strings and makes you re evaluate your priorities, especially after reading the story of Aisha s mother, Fatima, where she nearly dies trying to hold on to the key of her house as they were being driven out of Palestine view spoiler When she does finally meet her sister Dalia, whom she was seperated from, at the border she tells her sister through the fence to unlock the front door of their house and leave it open so it would be ready when they returned only Fatima doesnt know or maybe can t accept that their old vilage was now a pile of old stones and overgrown shrubs next to an israeli town with a different name hide spoiler Its a bitter, bitter story about people s endless hope meeting a hopeless end.Hasan s brother s story was also another bitter rendition of a needless war and how little Arab life is valued in the Middle East.Overall an okay book that I would not recommend as the shallowness dominates the book Having lived most of my life on Bliss Street, I was intrigued to read this book Kenway was able to capture Lebanon and the Lebanese libneniyeh very precisely The story is fun to

Kenway was able to capture Lebanon and the Lebanese libneniyeh very precisely The story is fun to read and basically gives the reader an overview of the country and how the people behave The thing that Im not keen about is the name of the shop Arabian Sands , which is not a typical Lebanese name for a store Lebanon is not a desert and such a name is never used especially in Beirut where people prefer foreign names.The other thing that I felt was a bit vague is why Maya likes James We weren t given enough reason why she would like someone like him Worst book ever s Bliss Street sheds a light on the disregard for the aspirations of young men and women, social taboos and hypocrisies, and stifling gender roles in Lebanon, however, I find Maya and James love story itself as somewhat cliche It is a typical boy meets girl story with no surprises Kenway gives us very few reasons why Maya would fall for someone like James, however it is through her feisty cosmopolitan character and sharp wit that we remain interested Additionally, the spicy personalities that Bliss Street sheds a light on the disregard for the aspirations of young men and women, social taboos and hypocrisies, and stifling gender roles in Lebanon, however, I find Maya and James love story itself as somewhat cliche It is a typical boy meets girl story with no surprises Kenway gives us very few reasons why Maya would fall for someone like James, however it is through her feisty cosmopolitan character and sharp wit that we remain interested Additionally, the spicy personalities that surround their love affair have great potential to add further depth to the story had Kenway invited us further into their thoughts and lives, particularly in the case of Walid, Maya s boyfriend Likewise, the pop video directing chapters in the novel take up a big portion of the novel without adding any value to the story However this may be the result of the author adhering to the novel s easy reading fiction style.The biggest character of the story and the star of the book to me is Beirut, the city itself Having lived in Beirut during the time period of the novel, I was impressed by the accuracy in which Kenway captures the organized chaos of the city His somewhat Western perspective paints a precise picture of the madness of the streets, the psyche of the people, and the fusion of capitalism and spirituality We experience Beirut s craziness and excitement in his description of the bullet holes in the walls in Hamra Street and the cracked pavements, the Wonderbra posters next to the Hezbollah flag, near the mosque and a church, where a female covered in a headscarf walks past a waiter dressed in a tuxedo Yes, this is the Beirut that we Lebanese know to be true and love, the Beirut that is loaded with emotions and contrasts.Through Bliss Street my love for Beirut is renewed I am reminded of the reason why I moved back to this part of the world when Kenway mentions how lonely Western cities must feel to anyone who grew up in Lebanon Beirut is a place where there is literally never a dull moment and where new friendships await you at every corner As Napoleon Bonaparte infamously once said, Strength and growth come only through continuous effort and struggle The gift of Beirut to those who embrace it, is tremendous personal growth and richness of character This novel is a fast paced light read for anyone who is curious to experience life in Lebanon and discover how Lebanese people go about their daily lives amidst sometimes complex and unpredictable situations It is an exciting short visit to Beirut, with all its complications, ironies, and unforgettable beauty Wow This author nails life in Beirut I want to quote her on my blog I also want to buy multiple copies of this books so my friends family can understand what Beirut is like The writing was not particularly strong but she had a very nice story I also liked that the author didn t get too into which side politically was right She stayed very neutral Looking forward to readingby Kristin Kenway. I read Bliss Street several years ago but I still remember how much a good read it was and how much it was a lively description of Beirut and Beirutis I remember being really touched by the Palestinian woman story This is definitely a must read for a Lebanese, anyone living Lebanon and anyone who knows a Lebanese.Readon The Cube I read Bliss Street several years ago but I still remember how much a good read it was and how much it was a lively description of Beirut and Beirutis I remember being really touched by the Palestinian woman story This is definitely a must read for a Lebanese, anyone living Lebanon and anyone who knows a Lebanese.Readon The Cube It simply introduces Beirut, the way it was, is and forever will be So complicated, so Ironic, full of hypocrisy yet Beautiful.
