Journal Entry 1 by maroula on Sunday, November 30, 2008
"...As the snow begins to fall, a journalist arrives in the remote city of Kars on the turkish border. Kars is a troubled place -there is a suicide epidemic among its young women, Islamists are poised to win the locaql elections and the head of the intelligence service is viciously effective. When the growing blizzard cuts off the outside world, the stage is set for a terrible and desperate act..."

This book is a political thriller with profound relevance to the present moment. Pamuk decides to illuminate the vast differences between the secular and extremist Islamists, as well as the ambivalence of the religious non-western world about the godless West.
