Opinions from Keynote Arab Writers:

1. Writer {Osama Anwar Okasha}, wrote:
Writer Lubna Mahmoud Yassin surprised me with her first story collection that has been titled “Against the Tide”. Surprise is the only impression which stresses merit and good literature and writing is the one that surprises you and arouse the magical mix of response with mind and senses that touch the hearts. This is what I perceived in Lubna’s stories. Lubna Yassin…. Stop infront of this name…. tuned to and monitor this name. She is a promising writer and we will read more from her.

2. Writer {Fatheya Al Asal; Head of the Egyptian Women Writers}, wrote:
Syrian writer Lubna Yassin in her first story collection “Against the Tide” asserts that she is a writer with wonderful approach and the most important characteristic of this writer is her bias to simple people. Thus, she takes the nectar from simple people and makes good art. All greetings and love from me to Lubna. I am quite confident that she will make a great writer in the future.

3. Writer {Mahfouz Abdel Rahman}, wrote:
First experience is always critical. It introduces us to people but at the same time put us in dilemma as it is difficult to really know writers from their first experienceunless thw writer is really innovative like Lubna Yassin in her first story “Against the Tide”. Certainly, when she writes her second collection of stories, she will be more firmly established. She currently has significant capacities and the story which topped her collection “Saber’s Death” (Mawt Saber), has categorized her among the well-established writers. It is the first and most beautiful collection.
