Got this book last year when we had decided to go to Turkey for our vacation. It is set up like a mystery, but in the end I do not think that it important who the murderer is. Interesting way of telling a story with a changing perspective.

Book has arrived safe and sound. Thanks x

18 March 12 - I liked the idea of the way this book was written with each chapter being from a different characters perspective so you only get their take on the story at any one time, but for me this didn't quite work as they all sounded the same, which meant I had to keep flipping back to the beginning the chapter to remind myself who I was reading.

The mystery was intriguing and was what kept me reading, I certainly did not work our who done it. The love story was not that interesting and I did not like Shekure, she was very manipulative and did not seem to know what she wanted. It read like a art history book a lot of the time and although interesting to start with, I soon tired of it, if felt like this book could have been a lot shorter. It would have been great if this book had some illustrations to help with the descriptions of the pictures, but then I guess that would have made it even longer!! Sorry for having this book so long!

It's here! Many thanks for the offer of this enticing looking book. It'll be the first time I read a Turkish author.
