      Well, maybe it s because I am a Turkish student going to college in the United States myself, but I adored this book The language is not as good as The Bastard of Istanbul in some points it looks like Elif Safak is a student who just learned some SAT words and using them to show off Yet of course, this is irrelevant for me, as I fell in love with all the characters of the book and identified myself especially with Omer, the main character This novel expresses the feeling of in between ness in a [...]

      See, the thing is that for me, when a book s main character measures the time in his life by the amount of times he s listened to a song esp a good song , I tend to fall in love with him a little It s sort of the same for me when a main character is a photographer And when you fall in love with a main character, you end up thinking highly of the book involved and alsoyou forget that it s a work of fiction because it seems so real Then, you have to consider that if every work of fiction is somew [...]

      In the future I will write an in depth blog about why this is one of the most amazing novels I ve ever read As for anyone who is torn between whether they should read this or not, I ll be the first to tell you that it is not a novel for everyone There are some bold choices of english language usage in this novel most notably the wide range of said substitutes which I think is brilliant cheeped Alegre, Abed croaked, and the like There are also several parts where the narrator via Omer s muse will [...]

      I loved the 2 chapters about Istanbul and I think it saved the book Anyway the last 100 pages are better than the rest Not the best book by E.S.

      I cannot help but enjoy this book This is perhaps one of the most enjoyable reads that I have had in the recent past I never thought that this book would be a good one, and thus I have prolonged touching it until I realized that I had to return the book soon to the library, but once I started it, it was just a non stop awesome read.So, what is this about This book is about a group of twenty somethings who come from all over the world It is set in Boston, and the characters are mostly internation [...]

      There was nothing depressing in life, she deduced, than being obliged to have fun Still he could sense a dose of an obscure, quashed resentment in the tones of most a resentment that those left behind tend for feel for the one who has gone After all, native speakers enjoy hearing those teeny tiny imprecisions that the former produce as if there were money in it Seldom do they intevene, and when they do, it is too often with an affectionate vigilance like parents taking joy in the mistakes their [...]

      n romanul lui Elif Shafak, Sf ntul nebuniilor incipiente, e o stare de joac permanent Se joac personajele ntre ele, un num r rezonabil de excentricit i zburd c t mai departe de punctele personale de echilibru, cuvintele se zbenguie printre limbi, muzica joac rolul timpului, iar diavolul i bate joc de supa din literele alfabetului g tit de Dumnezeu i i r stoarn castronul, ceea ce duce la intrarea literelor n delir B nuiala mea este c n acel moment a venit scriitoarea turc Elif Shafak i a adunat l [...]

      This book is how I met with Elif Shafak It was definitely what I needed to read when I read it 5 years ago It is about identities, being a foreigner, being a foreign student, about the sense of belonging, life struggless I have read like 6 7 Elif Shafak books after this one, and it is still my favorite OK I did enjoy the forty rules of love, but I don t know how much original it is, and it is way too commercialized

      Read in 2009 My 2nd Shafak book definitely MY LAST By far one of the worst books I ever readI was very dissappointed in Shafak especially after I had read Bastard of Istanbul only few months before reading this one My expectations were so high for this book but was utterly shocked and did NOT even want to continue reading till the end Frankly, i didn t care for the characters or their dull lives, neither did i care for the storyline, which didn t even seem to exist and if it did, it was very slo [...]

      I read this pretty quickly on a flight While it addresses several of the issues about the class, identity, and the multidimensionality of Turkish culture that one might find in a book by Orhan Pamuk, it s very nice in the sense that it uses light, often charming character driven to hit the points home Only major critique is that there are too many sub stories going on at one time, which is to be expected given the plot.

      I enjoyed the ruminations of the international cast of characters on the immigrant experience experience of foreign students in America There were some cute bits about the comforts of speaking with another non native English speaker, the significance of a name to one s identity, cultural sensitivity and the insecurities people have about their countrymen and country as well as themselves The characters have problems and are essentially misfits and thrown together through strange circumstances It [...]
