    1. Una joya de la literatura! Sin duda! Hacía tiempo que no leía una historia taaaaaannnnn condenadamente buena y absorbente. La voz de Schami me ha transportado a Damasco como si fuera una alfombra voladora y me ha envuelto en una Mil y una noches de historias prohíbidas; de secretos y pasiones, de carceles y manicomios, de amores imposibles y venganzas Sin dudarlo, de momento este es el mejor libro que he leído este año! "No hay peor falta de libertad que la que uno se ve obligado a sopotar [...]


    2. الجانب المظلم للحب في الحقيقة، بدأت بقراءة هذا العمل ذات صباح شتوي في نهاية يناير الماضي وتوقفت بعد أن قرأت ما يزيد على ثلثه بشكل متواصل .منذ يومين بدأت العمل من جديد فسيفساء رفيق شامي المذهلة ملحمة تبدأ بقصة عداء تاريخي بين عائلتي (مشتاق وشاهين) المسيحيتين في إحدى القرى الس [...]


    3. This is without a doubt one of my favorite books of all time. I'm surprised to see that some of the other reviewers criticized for being yet another book about honor killings in Arabia; one of the things I loved about was that it did NOT deal with honor killings as the all-encompassing story, in fact, it was just one of the many haunting and exquisitely told stories in this mammoth of a book. Definitely the length of the book should not be looked at as a hindrance: once I really got into the boo [...]


    4. أميل هذه الأيام إلى قراءة الروايات الضخمة، وبخلاف بعض الاستطرادات السردية -التي هي كثيرة في هذه الرواية- فإن "الإيقاع المظلم للحب" منضبطة الإيقاع والهيكل إلى حد كبير، وتدور دورة كاملة عندما تصل لنهايتها، وهذه المقاربة عادةً ما تجعلني أبتسم مع الانتهاء من القراءة، تحديدًا عن [...]


    5. I am so very frustrated with this book! The violence is repetitive. The sex is disturbingly portrayed, and it is repetitive too. There is no beauty in any love relationship. Beauty.I thought I would glimpse the beauty of the Syrian landscape. No! I thought I would be drawn into learning about Syrian history and culture. I thought I would get a feel for Damascus. All of this is lacking. There is no emotional tie between the reader and the numerous characters. You meet a character and he is marrie [...]


    6. ملحمة روائية تستحق القراءة عن عائلتين تنتميان لقرية مجاورة لدمشق بينهما صراع اجتماعي وسياسي الرواية تنتمي لفترة ال ١٩٠٦ الى السبعينات بتفاصيلها (ولكنها تصل للألفية الثانية فيما بعد وفي الصفحات الأخيرة). أبدع الروائي رفيق شامي الذي تعرفت عليه شخصيا عبر صديق مشترك (وكان هذا ب [...]

    8. While at the beginning, I had some trouble getting into the story of the family feud between two Christian families in Syria which began at the end of the 19th century and keeps influencing generation after generation, the book and its characters started to grow on me after having ploughed through the first third of the novel. While I found the repetitiveness of violence and forbidden love a little bit tiring at first, it became one topic of many in the course of the book. I truly enjoy the Orie [...]


    9. Since I bought this book in October 2013, is been challenge to get time and start reading it as I have never read those types of a long length book. The first 50 Pages been hard to Understand what the book were about, as it was not matching the title of the book. However this book is now one my masterpiece and favorite book, as the author have create a very individual and a unique type of writing, by connecting and linking more then 200 characters an one novel. This book is explaining of the pow [...]


    10. رواية مُنهكة. كنت قد توقفت عند الصفحة 400 قبل ثلاثة شهور. في اليومين الماضيين عدّت وأنهيتها. هذا عمل عظيم جدًا جدًا جدًا. مراجعة مطوّلة قريبًا إن شاء الله.


    11. Spanning eight hundred and ninety-six pages and three sprawling generations of Syrian families, 'The Dark Side Of Love' is a massive, monumental paean to passion in all its tragic glory.Decades in its creation, Schami's work consists of three hundred and four separate fragments ordered together in the same intricate manner as the mosaics which adorn the Arab world's most splendid mosques. 'Each of these pieces tells a story, and when you have read them they show you their own secret colours,' sa [...]


    12. The Dark Side of love is an 853 page tome, set in Syria and written in German. Rafik Schami grew up in Syria but moved to Germany in 1971.From the description on the back cover you would think this is a murder mystery, but it isn’t in the general sense. It starts at the end and then works it’s way backwards and forwards to create a mosaic of life and love that lead towards the end.It is set between Damascus and the village of Mala, homeland of the warring Mushtak’s and Shahin families, who [...]


    13. I gave it the old college try, but decided to abandon this novel after 100 pages. The Dark Side of Love is a story of Rana Shahin and Farid Mushtak, whose love story is similar to Romeo and Juliet, only this tale takes place in Syria, and the fighting between the families is much more violent. The novel begins when a body is found – a high ranking Muslim officer, and I presume that the remainder of the story unfolds like crime fiction, which is not really my cup of tea. There are many reviewer [...]


    14. The main story was interesting. However, there were too many side stories. I found them distracting. I read half of the book and just couldn't drum up the interest to finish it. I think it would have been an excellent book at half of its length and more focus on the main characters.


    15. I really think the blurb on and on the back of my English paperback does this book a disservice, making it out to be a simple murder mystery when it is in fact an 800-page social history of Damascus and wider Syria that was 30+ years in the writing. The murder plot exists mainly to conveniently bookend an epic story of decades of clan rivalry, peppered with countless loosely-related vignettes that serve to illuminate daily life in an Arab state and the way different cultural and political group [...]


    16. imgur/a/A3Tq0إن رواية رفيق شامي , الجانب المظلم للحب المكونة من 1038 صفحة , بشكل أو بآخر تتحدث عن الحب المحرم بين شابين مسيحيين , كان ولا يزال العداء بين عشيرتيهما ضروساً , حيث أن الشاب فريد مسيحي كاثوليك بينما الشابة رنا مسيحية آرثوذكس , وكانت العائلة رنا تمنعها عن الحديث مع فريد , بينم [...]


    17. This took me far too long to read. The blurb on the back gives the impression it will be a murder mystery kind of story that it sent in Syria, so I figured I would see how investigations like that work in that setting. It's nothing like that. Around 95%, possibly more, of the book bears absolutely no relation to the original event at the opening of the book. There was, frankly, no need to tell a story going back over such a long period of time to only get to the original event and summarise the [...]


    18. A literary mosaic about the mystery that is Damascus, where every "little piece tells a story, and when you have read them they show you their own secret colours. And as soon as you have read all the stories you will see the picture." A story of forbidden love, misfortune and grief brought about by the antiquated Arabic notion of honour, and a nation's inability to come to terms with its multiplicity and embracing the richness of it's social, religious, political and ethnic mosaic.Rafik Scahmi i [...]


    19. This book started in a really amazing and creative manner, which reminded me of bks like "house of the spirits" and "one hundred years of solitude".aaand that was really promising! That was untill the bk was all cenetered around Farid and the plot goes astraycusing on stuff that really didnt make any difference regarding the plot and was just used to fill more and more pages!We could have been better off without many secondary characters and details that were simply a waste of time!The backbone [...]


    20. I've reached page 172 and I admit I've lost interest!The book is cluttered with too many characters; I can't tell who's who anymore.I believe Rafik Schami is gifted in story telling but needs to acquire some zooming skills.This is the second book I read for him and I like the Calligraphers Secret way better than this onethe other reason that pushed me away from this book is the amount of negative energy packed between its linesThis writer has the talent for romantic settings, so I wish to read f [...]


    21. I would give it 2 and half a star really. The book was so long, full of details ( that did not really have a positive impact on me). I thanked god it ended happily. Diversity of stories based on different characters are amusing somethings but are useless other times. The essence of the book is politics, religion and sex. Would I recommend people to read it? No, the book would be a waste of time !


    22. بدأت قرءة الكتاب بتفاؤل كبير نظرا لأني أعدت قبله قراءة كتاب "حكواتي الليل" لنفس الكاتب رفيق شاميفي منتصف الكتاب بدأت أشعر أنني قد وقعت في الفخ! ف أسلوب رفيق شامي يغريك بمتابعة القراءة ولكن المحتوى أصبح فارغا من أي معنى! وكنت مصممة على إعطاءه نجمة واحدة أو أقل لو كان ذلك خيارام [...]


    23. "The clan saved the Arabs from the desert but it enslaved them. "I loved this book to bits and this could quite possibly be one of the best books of this year. I know it's quite early but this mammoth of a book has possibly everything you could ask for. To describe what the plot is, can be complicated because I am very happy to report that there isn't a linear plot. Instead, Rafik describes it as a mosaic, putting together an assortment of pieces till the big picture emerges and that is exactly [...]


    24. Rafik Schami writes in his afterword that ever since he was a 16-year-old boy in Syria, back in the 1960s, he had wanted to write a realistic Arab love story, but it took him 40-odd years to get it right. The result is a novel that looks at dozens of permutations of doomed romance against a backdrop of decades of Syrian history, though the bulk of the story is set in the 1950s and 1960s.The novel opens with a murder mystery – a body has been found, and when the assigned detective is suddenly r [...]


    25. Un buen libro respecto al que tengo sentimientos encontrados La historia en sí me ha gustado mucho, y también la forma de narrarlo -muy al estilo árabe, de contar anécdotas y breves historias e ir entretejiendo todo, como esas teselas de las que habla el autor en su nota final. Pero me sobran teselas, algunas historias se han alargado mucho para mi gustoHa habido partes que me gustaron mucho, especialmente al principio, el inicio de las luchas entre los Mushtak y los Sahin; algunos personaje [...]


    26. This was the perfect book to read to get a taste of Syria - outside the main story, the author throws in small chapters that give little stories that seem like they came from his grandmother; stories about life in Syria through the ages, and the characters you find there. Stories about how people think and feel: women, men, all religions. So, why only 3 stars? Because it was too epic (i.e. long and complicated). It spanned several generations and hundreds of pages just to set the background for [...]


    27. This was very disappointing as I was really looking forward to learning more about Syria and its history. Instead I got a couple of Christian families warring against each other and influencing generation after generation. I wanted to slap the main protagonists and tell them to get a life The repetitive (and to my eyes, mindless) violence, forbidden love, stereotyped characters, poor writing in the end just got too boring, The continual forays back into history explaining yet another character's [...]


    28. A truly wonderful book, very enjoyable despite the length - which many reviewers seemed to refer to, doubtless to brag (perhaps I should have read this in two volumes to get more credits).I hope potential readers aren't put off by the length of the book - for a start my edition was printed in quite a large font and secondly, the chapters are very short. The story is soap opera-like with a large number of stories and people interweaving over time and space.My only criticism is that one of the ma [...]


    29. So far, the dark side of love seems to be that, in Syria, if you glance at a woman not your wife or a family member, your entire family will be slaughtered and generations of men will devote themselves to revenge bullshit. Muslims and Christians are both involved (Muslims claiming the #1 spot)but Jews may get into the action, too--after all, I've got 750 pages to go.What's wrong with these people? Is it the climate? Religion seems to play little part. I wish I could report that the novel is set [...]


    30. I really enjoyed this novel, a beautiful story of forbidden love. I struggled with the first part, but as soon as we entered the world of the Mushtak's and the Shahin's I was completely absorbed by this book. Full of lovely short stories, I felt like I was sitting around a cosy camp fire, listening to each one. Don't let the size put you off, it is a very easy book to put down and pick up after a break. I found it very relaxing to read, even through the very dark and gritty chapters. The author [...]
