The road to chlifa by Brad Dougherty on Prezi

Review: The Road to Chlia by Michele Marineau is a thought-provoking story with a bumpy narration style.

The parts that were written by Karim or about his direct experiences were definitely the most compelling and engaging aspect of the book.

“In the afternoon, the bombing starts up again in the distance, but they hardly notice. Over there are bombs; here are trees, rocks, birds and butterflies. The two worlds have nothing in common. Maybe this is how one forgets atrocities. By distancing oneself. By acting as if they don’t exist.” – from The Road to Chlifa by Michèle Marineau, page 92My favourite part is a quote from Karim’s reflections, and it’s the last quote in the Memorable Quotes section.

He was simply in despair.” – from The Road to Chlifa by Michèle Marineau, page 24The road to ChlIfa BY:ShuaiburRahman Safi Lebanon culture The religion of Islam also plays a key role in Lebanon's culture.

Human condition Discrimination against women is one of the bad human condition in Lebanon. Lebanon’s prison has very poor condition and detention facilities remain poor, with overcrowding and lack of proper medical care a perennial problem. Clothes Urban women are very fashion. More traditional clothes are still worn in some villages. These include long dresses for women. Men's pants are full and baggy from the waist to the knee, then tightly fitted from the knee to the ankle. Their jackets have fancy, brightly colored. Some older rural men continue to wear the traditional short, cone-shaped, brown felt hat. Book summary The story of “The road to...Karim doesn’t say anything. There’s nothing to say. A lifetime wouldn’t be enough to try to understand.” – Maha from The Road to Chlifa by Michèle Marineau, page 96Susan Ouriou is a Calgary-based translator and writer who has translated from both French and Spanish.
