    "FAREWELL ALEXANDRIA HAS IT ALL" Farewell Alexandria, by Derek Flower, is a treat in more ways than one. Steeped in the juices of international history, flavored with the unadulterated ambition of its main characters, it is brought to a rolling boil as it chronicles the story of three generations of one family. Whisking the reader on a worldwide tour from Egypt to Ethiopia, from London and Paris to New York City the multiple plots in this narrative are filled with everything from boardroom treachery to the innocence of first love to downright torrid sex. (Visualize the Onassis family joined through marriage with the J.R. Ewing clan and you'll get the picture). The one minor complaint I have is that there are so many characters (both primary and secondary) that the author could have made his readers life a bit easier by selecting more diverse names for his players. (Why with all the names in the world call one character Julius and another Julian?). Perhaps it was the... More > author's way of assuring that the reader is paying attention. Overall I must say that once I got 40 pages into this book, Derek Flowers had me literally hooked and I couldn't wait to turn each page to discover what cruel twists of fate destiny had in store for each of his characters. This is a book crying out for Hollywood to bring it to the silver screen, but while you wait for the film version, give yourself a treat and buy the book.< Less

    "FAREWELL ALEXANDIA by DEREK ADIE FLOWER" Drawing on his own experience of Egypt, in FAREWELL ALEXANDRIA Derek Flower has created a dramatic story line against a background of historical events - political and economic - from 1910 to 1990. That history has drawn increasing inrerest from Americans during the current climate of worldwide struggles amongst religious, national and ethnic groups. Described as a 'blockbuster of a novel', Farewell is the gripping family saga of power, intrigue and passion that spans three generations, set against the glittering backdrops of pre-war Egypt, Paris, London and New York
