i just finish reading novel written by Orhan Pamuk entitled; My name is Red, or in original language it is benim Kirmizi.
this novel is awsome, it has many characters and the writer told the story from each character’s feeling and point of view. thus, do not imagine that you will read the whole story as if someone detached from it knew everything and told u the story. it is like we are talking to each character as the characters are TALKING to us.
‘My name is Red”, won the noble prize for literature in 2006 . the topic alone is unique and attracting; it was about assassination of Sultan’s illustrators in Turky done by one of them who was afraid of the foreign influence over their original arts and literatures. the details are there. It is illustrating how western and eastern culture collided and took its innocent tolls.
yet, it needs patience to read this thick novel as it is very thick and also demands us to think, to digest any clue leading to revealing the murder. besides, inside the main story you will read many other parables which i am sure i am not familiar with.
and another good news is that the writer is a bold man ! :))) hip hip hurray, hee hee hee hee http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orhan_Pamuk
