Opinions from the reading jury
I was constantly conflicted about my opinion of Nadia. Sometimes I wanted to shake her, so that she comes to her senses, sometimes I wanted to comfort her, because I could understand her very well.
After her divorce .
I was constantly conflicted with my opinion of Nadia. Sometimes I wanted to shake her so that she would come to her senses, sometimes I wanted to comfort her because I could understand her very well.
After her divorce she actually felt well. Lived in a shared apartment with a young, handsome man. Only platonically, of course. The only downer was their unemployment. After a vacation in Turkey her passion for the Orient was ignited.
She learned how to prepare Arabic dishes and belly dance.
When she received a call from a Karim who wanted to visit her, she didn’t know what hit her at first. Nadia was recommended to Karim by a couple who were friends of his. She fell in love with this wonderful voice right away. So when she picked him up from the Nuremberg train station, her knees got downright wobbly.
At home she spoiled him with Arabic dishes. Karim tells her about his life. Often he chuckled (laughed) which gave Nadia a tingle in her stomach. To make a long story short, they met in October 1995. November 1995 they got married in Amsterdam.
I had my problems with it. Karim already had a wife and three children.
He really wanted Nadia as a second wife. Since a divorce is impossible for a devout Muslim, he now had to take care of two women.
I wondered: Is it really Nadia?? Really? You as a self-employed woman, who had just divorced a cheater, now want to become a second wife? And that veiled from head to toe.
Of course, Karim was so vulnerable and lonely. He needed a woman who would see eye to eye with him was!
Nadia should still have to gnaw on this statement many a time.
