    1 thought on “Moirae”

    1. Dreamland!Symbolic, dreamlike, thought-provoking - these are only few of the qualities this contemporary fiction book could boast about. The main message though is quite powerful and down-to-earth. Namely, the human struggles, hidden motives, weaknesses and aspirations hold true across various cultures, geographic locations and timeframes. Nevertheless, perhaps our personal and brave choices make the difference in our diverse lives.

    2. Looking for that very different type of read, one that pulls you directly into the hearts and minds of its characters? Moirae by Mehreen Ahmed is nothing like anything I have ever read before.In the fantasy world created by this author, a government claiming to be totally democratic in its policies proves anything but as we follow a young girl whose only hope of fleeing the stigma of poverty and persecution is to become one of the fortunate few who find a new life in a land of plenty, far away. [...]

    3. Dr. Tony McMahon's review of MoiraeMehreen Ahmed is a wildly interesting writer. Moirae is not the first book from the Queensland scribe that I’ve read, but it is undoubtedly the best, most mature work. This is a nebulous yet - paradoxically perhaps – razor sharp text that speaks to the reader on a number of intellectual levels. Ahmed somehow manages to blend stream of consciousness type prose with a sure knack for story telling, and the results are no less than delightful. If you think abou [...]

    4. Although "Moirae" may not be everyone's cup of tea, it is however an intellectual read that may not entail what you may perceive things of this nature to be but, it does urge an open mind with a thirst for a multifaceted wave of knowledge, maybe even bordering on the philosophical or suggestive. Either way to me it's about faith in yourself not particularly just a higher power. It's about dreams and having the forethought and inner strength to make those dreams come to fruition and to be willing [...]

    5. This book was such an amazing banquet of the depiction of the humans facing and exploring their lives in this fantasy land called Moirae This place, Lost Winds is a planet with two moons.This story is about the people living there and the oppression they're suffering. They flee to a place called Draviland to find safety.This book grabbed my attention immediately and I realised that this book was for me! I just had to keep reading until the end. Thank you Mehreen!!

    6. Stream of consciousness soup laced with lucid dreaming and spiced with magical realism—served with a side of almost, but not quite conventional, narrative: this story of “children of the lesser gods,” down and out in a world that cares not what happens to them as they hope against hope to find peace and fulfilment is not for the faint of heart.Progressively, sometimes simultaneously, the river of thoughts, feelings and conscious reactions of Mehreen Ahmed’s vividly drawn characters to th [...]

    8. 4.0 out of 5 stars. The subject and switching writing styles reveal tragidy against the enduring human spirit. A Most Revealing Read for a Westerner. Class struggle exists around the world, and this story picked the hardships in and around India to lift its veil. It was shockingly real, candid, and made an impression on me like looking upon another strange, populated planet.The stream of consciousness style chosen for parts of 'Moirae' was interesting and I had never read it before. It was like [...]

    9. A great initiation into Stream of Consciousness writing!Moirae is written in a style of writing called 'stream of consciousness' and I have never read a whole book in that style before, although I am familiar with the concept of free-writing. I did Google the meaning of the term 'stream of consciousness' to be sure that I was developing an understanding of the style and meaning and that it was inline with the intention of the author. Initially the lack of punctuation and the seemingly random cap [...]

    10. Moirae opens with the mass exodus of people from a mythical land called Lost Winds. The setting is one of brutal oppression, moral and political descent. We follow the lives of a young woman, Nalia, and her brother, MD, after they escape. After they take the harrowing sea voyage to a new land, what they experience calls into question all of their hopes for a new life, their assumptions about civilization, and humanity. An interesting story, dark and disturbing in its religious overtones and lack [...]

    12. A little dark and disturbing at times, the story follows Nalia and her family as they attempt to escape from their hardships and religious stress. Their eyes are opened to reality, as awful as it may be, on board their voyages. They find that their lives aren't any better in the new land. They have the same problems, but in a different setting.The story is about one's journey in life. With faith and hope, and not by fleeing, one cannot fight to overcome any hardships by using our inner strengths [...]

    13. I just completed reading Moirae by Mehreen Ahmed,when I first began to read it I wasn't sure what to expect as this isn't a genre I would normally indulge in but the further I read the more captivated I become until I couldn't put the book down until I had read it completely. It put me on a journey through interwoven stories where dreaming and reality became one. Beauty,love, drama and tragedy danced romantically around my mind in this enchanting book and I would highly recommend it to readers o [...]

    14. Moirae by Mehreen Ahmed is written from the point of views of exploited or marginalized persons who escape to the fantasy shores with strong reminders of the caste system in India. This world is controlled by two moons. These people might try to improve their situations but can’t. In the name of religion people are put down. Is there any hope for them? As a reader I wanted them to have power of their minds which is the first step to control one’s destiny. As an American with contrasting bene [...]

    15. Endearing journeyThe journey is a dream, one of travel and danger, and being trapped within someone's mind. It's an interesting story that leads the reader on an intense adventure in the search for peace, but there is a cost. The writing is well done and the way the author describes this dream state, and the connection to consciousness, is stunning. A unique voyage into the soul of the characters. Brilliantly written.

    16. This is the first time I came across this concept of writing .It is beautifully written. It explores the concept of real world through dreams .The narration by Mehreen Ahmed fantastic and flawless. It makes the reader realize that the Journey is more important than the destination. A Very inspiring novel that motivates you to enjoy your journey and live your dreams.

    17. A Well Written and Thought Provoking Tale With a Unique Writing StyleMoirae is a story with many themes running through its narrative. There's the story of a young woman longing for her beloved, the tale of an imprisoned man longing for a better life, and the story of a woman and her child. There are also other stories present and they all connect at various points as the characters all have a connection to the village of their childhoods. Along the way each of the characters is met with the rig [...]

    18. I didn't like this book at all. It had too much politics and religion for me to give a shit. The story is supposedly set on some fantasy world, but it seems to me that this fantasy world is simply the Middle East. Because there's all the jihad shit, and Muslims, and Mohammad and Jesuits.This story is about the battle between those religions. Where families and farms are wiped out by roving gangs of jihad thugs. Because if you don't belong to their religion, you don't deserve to live. You don't d [...]

    19. The central theme of Moirae is hope. Set against a backdrop of poverty, laden with a sense of helplessness from living under an autocratic, tyrannical regime, Nalia struggles to come to terms with the loss of her newly-wed husband after he's arrested for profiteering. There follows a disturbing, yet familiar and sometimes dream-like narrative on human oppression which is cleverly woven into the lives of the characters that helps bring each of their stories to life.Although unfamiliar with the st [...]

    20. Moirae was an interesting read for me, thanks in part to the stream of consciousness style in which it is written. What this means is that the book runs in a ‘free flow’ with little in the way of punctuation and a focus instead of letting the story run its course in a natural way. While it can be said that this style of writing is divisive amongst readers, one thing that you often hear is that it will put you straight into the character’s heads, perhaps even more so than conventional style [...]

    21. Moirae has a fantasy land for its setting. But the inhabitants of the land and their living condition echo the plight of millions on our very own planet earth. These people are supposed to be under a democratic rule, but this idea itself is farcical. They are subject to tyranny and have little rights. The book with its unique narrative technique explores how these people are torn between their own land which maltreats them and a land of hope which does not accept them. Having read one of Ahmed [...]

    22. Let me begin by saying that I have an MA in English literature and have read modernist writers such as Joyce, Woolf and Conrad, all of whom wrote in the ‘stream of consciousness’ style emulated in parts by this writer. I am used to literary techniques requiring pro-active intellectual effort from the reader. I was forewarned that this book would require my English Lecturer’s head and I duly engaged it.The book is full of philosophy (Moirae means Fate), allegory and symbolism. It has litera [...]

    23. This is not my first time reading a novel written in the stream of consciousness style and I have to state that Moirae by Mehreen Ahmed is leaps and bounds above others. The prose is delicate at times, poetic in others, then wildly aggressive and chaotic, yet in outstanding fashion the book flows together so smoothly, at times I had to remind myself of the technique employed in writing because everything just meshed so well together - which is quite a feat considering!Moirae is everything you wa [...]

    24. This stream-of-consciousness, fevered dream, fable-ish allegory skips around randomly into different points of view; interjects snippets of Shakespeare and other classics wherever the heck it wants to; ignores conventions of story structure, punctuation, capitalization and, well, breaks just about every other rule of fiction telling- in a most delightful way!The fictional place, Lost Winds, is a third world tropical village that’s being torn apart by civil unrest. Life has become harsh and pre [...]

    25. This was a very hard book to get into but I eventually did and enjoyed it quite a bit. The only reason why I rated it 3/5 is because I couldn't handle the style of writing that seemed like it hadn't been edited or had no punctuation (sorry I have no idea what it's called, I think it's called lucid writing). It was very hard for me to read as I am an avid writer myself and very, very, very OCD which me at I couldn't really enjoy the sections that had that style of writing. In more positive notes, [...]

    26. What can I say about Moirae? Without a doubt it is unlike anything I’ve ever read! Mehreen Ahmed brings to you a story that I would have to describe as a “freely flowing consciousness” it’s like being in a dream state with all its shifts and turns brought to you in the text. Moirae is part dystopian, overcoming adversity, class oppression, deep faith, and family, all rolled up in one. Moirae follows a young girl by the name of Nalia as she and her family flees from civil unrest and oppre [...]

    27. I found myself reading Moirae not particularly interested in the subject, but by the time I reached the last page I was pleased to have given it a go. The plot deals with oppression and the premise of the story is focused on the escape from it. Where I found the true strength of the work is the writing style, breaking loose from any conventions and rules, ignoring them to the effect of creating a unique voice. Once the reader is used to it, he learns to give another perspective to the top layer [...]
