Into the Wild

Read Come Home Online Free - Nicole Nelson and Ahmed Masud are a dynamic, highly successful Philadelphia couple. They are partners in a thriving plastic surgery practice, are very much in love, and they adore their young son, Alex. But cracks are beginning to appear in their fairy-tale life: lingering post-9/11 prejudice against Arab men, accumulating malpractice lawsuits for Ahmed, and most recently, pressure from Ahmed's wealthy family in Cairo for him to return to Egypt--permanently--with his son. The Masud family pressure becomes a demand as the Hosni Mubarak regime is seriously threatened by protestors in Egypt. Ahmed's family owes their control of the Egyptian cotton empire directly to Mubarak cronyism. If Mubarak goes down, the Masuds will surely lose their wealth, maybe even their lives. They need Ahmed back in Egypt to implement their plan to move their fortune and family out of Egypt and into South America. Ahmed must make a decision--stay with Nicole in America--or obey his father. And what about their son? Tragic consequences, that Ahmed could have never foreseen, propel both the Masud family and Nelson family on a path toward unspeakable tragedy.

1.5-star read Although well written, as a Muslim, I felt the story relied heavily on stereotypical images of Muslims and Arabs. The author often confused Egyptian tradition with Islamic tradition and vice versa. The Masud family reportedly had issues with Ahmed and Nicole calling their son Alexand...

This was a poorly written book. It seemed that in every other sentence the author had to remind the reader how each character was related. She wouldn't just write the characters name; she persistently had to add "...his little brother, Seth" or "...her husband, Rob". I kept thinking, I know how t...

I read this book so quickly because I had a hard time putting it down - I just needed to find out of Alex would be OK in the end! That being said, I'm only giving it a three star rating because of the many things I found lacking in the book. First, not knowing much about the Egypt revolution in 20...

I don't know what to make of this earnest yet uncomfortable attempt to capture the impact of the upheaval in Egypt on a couple and their young child. Recognizing that there are a number of pressure points on Ahmed, it still seems hard to believe that he would board a private plane sent by his fam...
