Ayesha at Last
Ayesha at Last | Uzma Jalaluddin
A big-hearted, captivating, modern-day Muslim Pride and Prejudice, with hijabs instead of top hats and kurtas instead of corsets. AYESHA SHAMSI has a lot going on. Her dreams of being a poet have been overtaken by a demanding teaching job. Her boisterous Muslim family, and numerous (interfering) aunties, are professional naggers. And her flighty young cousin, about to reject her one hundredth marriage proposal, is a constant reminder that Ayesha is still single. Ayesha might be a little lonely, but the one thing she doesn't want is an arranged marriage. And then she meets Khalid... How could a man so conservative and judgmental (and, yes, smart and annoyingly handsome) have wormed his way into her thoughts so quickly? As for Khalid, he's happy the way he is; his mother will find him a suitable bride. But why can't he get the captivating, outspoken Ayesha out of his mind? They're far too different to be a good match, surely...

I‘m not always a fan of retellings of Austen‘s work, but this one is pitch perfect. The plot translates perfectly to the Muslim community in modern-day Toronto. Ayesha meets Khalid and sparks of both attraction and anger fly. Loved the side plot about workplace discrimination too.

“It‘s not enough to find someone you love. You have to be ready for that love, and ready to make changes to welcome it into your life.”

How often will I eat ahi poke? Any chance I get. 😍🐟🍚🤣Desk lunch from across the street (dashing across an access road with no crosswalks & plenty big trucks is a bit like playing Frogger 😱) with a few chapters of my library e-book.

This was an enjoyable window into a community I knew nothing about, the Canadian Muslim community. I liked the main characters a lot and thought the book was well written. The book is billed as a modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice. I can absolutely see the comparison; especially towards the end there are overt similarities in plot and dialogue. At first I was trying too hard to look for the P&P references. It‘s better to just enjoy the ride!

I forgot to take my usual finished soup + a book photo so I had to improvise. I didn‘t get to finish this library book when I checked it out before so I am hoping this time I can. The finished 🍲 is Yotam Ottolenghi‘s Legume (Noodle) Soup full of beans, split peas, pasta, spinach & herbs. A bit of a pain to make with extra steps but I modified it slightly & the taste more than makes up for it.😋 On the blog for #soupersundays link to recipe👇🏻

A Muslim-Indian-Canadian community take on Pride & Prejudice. Issues of identity within traditional and Canadian culture and perception and reality. A peek inside a culture I don‘t know. An eye-opener but not too heavy. A re-telling, of sorts, of Pride & Prejudice—but the story doesn‘t force it. 4.5/5 ⭐️

What a refreshing story about a Canadian Muslim who is trying to understand her place in the larger world and her community. Ayesha gets wrap up in helping her cousin plan a conference and in so doing isnt so forth cominv about who she is.

This story was beautifully written, funny and interesting. It was a delight to read about a completely different community and what values they hold and how they come together when a crisis occurs.

I loved all of the Shakespeare references thrown into this P&P update. It took a bit to get going, and I almost wish I hadn‘t known it was Part homage to Austen, because I wasted time in the first half trying to find the parallels instead of just enjoying the story for itself. I loved Ayesha and I loved the character growth of multiple characters. This was a solid debut.

Delightful as a good cup of Chai. Window into a world I know nothing about: Canada's Muslim Community. Fun story yet also tackles issues of stereotyping. Particularly loved Ayesha & Clara's friendship. Two very different women, yet they are friends, who look out for one another & are always there for each other. I think Jane Austen would approve. 💖💕

Sometimes a modern-day P&P reboot is a bit corny until I remind myself to settle in and wrap myself in Jane Austin rules. This time I just wrapped myself in a hijab (okay, a Charming Charlie scarf) and enjoyed every paragraph of this retelling - even forgot it was a reboot.

Last book of #BFCr2

Scochrane26 Have you heard or read Pride and Prejudice and Other Flavors? I saw it at the bookstore & am thinking about checking it out. 3mo
marleed @Scochrane26 Oh yes, I read it earlier this summer, but this one was my fave. I liked PP&OF but I thought the female MC was a bit wonky for her education and the fictional story gave great license to HIPPA rules. It would be interesting to read back to back. The P&P format is a fun way to experience other cultures. 3mo

This was a delight to read! It‘s honestly the first romantic comedy featuring a woman in a hijab by a woman who wears a hijab that I have ever read. It seems so important to have this kind of representation across genres. The incorporation of Pride and Prejudice worked well, overall. It was fun how some characters represented one or more of the characters and points of view from P&P. It was funny, smart, and genuinely romantic!

Uzma Jalaluddin's Ayesha at Last is such a perfect Austen rewrite. Its completely aligned with Pride and Prejudice without being a moment-by-moment recreation of it. Instead, Jalaluddin takes what makes Austen's work so perfect--the keen societal observations at its heart--and updates them for a modern, Muslim community. (continued in comments)

UnabridgedPod In Ayesha at Last, we fall in love with Ayesha, the title character, who deals with the same barriers that confront Elizabeth Bennett: a low socioeconomic status, a position as an "old maid" outshined by a more typically beautiful and bubbly younger relative, and a yearning for someone who is inherently dismissive of her. With Khalid, Jalaluddin perfectly his on the traits that make Darcy so alternately compelling and frustrating: ⬇️ 3mo
UnabridgedPod he is principled, caring, and so introverted and shy that it's hard to move past the shell he uses to protect himself. Of course, he's also judgmental and prickly. So. There you go. Ayesha at Last will join Ibi Zoboi's Pride and Sonali Dev's Pride, Prejudice, and Other Flavors as favorite rewrites of Jane Austen's classic novel.⠀

What are your favorite rewrites of classic novels? Have you read Ayesha at Last? What did you think?

cherinium I loved it. I'm not one to gush over P & P, but I definitely see and appreciate the parallels captured in Ayesha. I really loved the cultural perspective of Ayesha more than anything. 3mo

Modern very loose retelling of Pride and Prejudice. The machinations hit a particular spot for me (as someone who has worked in HR type stuff) but very enjoyable overall. For #RippedBodiceBingo there is neighbors, smells like a flower, sassy grandparents, title includes character's name, wine and spirits, and some costumes.

Ayesha At Last is a Pride and Prejudice inspired novel with lots of Shakespearean references — Muslim-style. I must stop saying that I‘m not a fan of rom-com because, apparently, I am. I‘m reading a lot of this genre because I‘m on a mission to read all the books on the ModernMrsDarcy.com Summer 2019 Reading List and I‘m truly enjoying most of them.

I'm such a sucker for a good pride and prejudice retelling, and this was definitely among the best.

I loved how much this adaptation focused on prejudice and judgement, and I thought the characters were all great reimaginings of the classic characters, particularly the Mr. Collins of this adaptation (I find I often judge adaptations on how good the Mr. Collins is because there's just so much potential there).

Described as a modern Muslim take on Pride & Prejudice, it was also heavily influenced by Shakespeare. While a bit too saccharine & cliche for my taste, overall it was a fun read. I really enjoyed being immersed into the life of the Canadian Muslim community.

I just adored this book. Yes this pays homage to Pride & Prejudice but this was so extremely fresh. Just like P&P there are you beloved characters and the ones that just make you cringe. I love how the author wrote so much Muslim culture into this, I felt totally immersed at times. I know there was another book that maybe was in the same vain, that just did not work. This is one of my favorite retellings ever.
