A good friend once told me that good books always teach you something. I learnt many new things whilst reading Cairo Mon Amour not the least an understanding of what life must've been like in Cairo in the seventies. I've never been to Cairo and its image was well projected in my mind. Stuart Campbell skilfully weaves a well researched, very interesting and entertaining story. The only problem was that it finished at the moment it was meant to continue. It got me.
