Hafsa Idrees - A New Voice
About Beginning After the End:
What can the fear of losing the ones we love push us to do? In Chrissie’s case, it pushed her to distance herself from Allan, the man she loves more than anything else in the world. She knows he will not marry her, that they don’t have a future together. But why does “out of sight” not mean “out of mind”? The wall that Chrissie has built around herself becomes a prison. As she fights for survival in the cold world she has created, she gets an unexpected call from Allan. This call changes her life forever. “Hafsa Idrees tells an extraordinary story that will make you think about life, death, love and faith like nothing before. The Beginning after the End is a book with a big big heart and a deep deep soul. You don’t enter its world – it enters yours.” Roy Eynhallow, EynhallowBooks.com Series: N/A Publisher: Amazon Genre: Contemporary Literary Fiction
Excerpt from Beginning After the End:
We all are fools to believe in happiness. This is the world’s greatest lie. There is no such thing in the world. No such thing ever existed. It is just the projection of the mind, an illustration of an illusion, a shade or a mirage and we all are bound to take it in our heads the other way. Such dorks we are, knowingly, I spoke to myself wryly. It is just like a Hollywood movie. Not the ordinary stuff, of course, but a good one. You enjoy watching it, engrossed in every line, action or scene, and the end has to come anyway. You have to return back rather sadly to your fucked up original practical life.
For me, the stupidest thing in the world is to make or gather memories. I do not know how someone can cherish a happy memory believing he once had it and enjoyed in some part of his life and how someone can be happy on a sad day, thinking about a memory. I have been at a loss to understand this complicated world and its ways and to keep up the pace with it. I was trying hard to put these thoughts aside, though. I was driving and I had to be careful.
