Gagis All men in the family have died and the only uncle, Mustafa, who lives in Arizona after leaving Istanbul twenty years earlier. That was hard going. This book was too much, too scattered for me: I can just imagine the meeting at the English publisher: I still want bava give her a chance through her non-fiction work, but the fiction pieces will be abandoned. Under the weight of symbolism and stereotypes none of the characters came alive. Just a moment while elfi sign you in to your Goodreads account. Dull characters, repetitious quasi-jokes, jagged storylines, essay-like prose where you can clearly see through her ideology fill the pages of this book and make reading it close to torture.

Shelves: old-holidays , 10 Wow! This was something! I have to admit I missed the feeling of oneness in a book. Unfortunately, I got to an old conclussion of mine again: critique and dissection of the book has no charm.
I clicked on some links and there I had! For me, this was a bit of fresh air after a lot of mediocre novels of this type.
If I started reading a few pages at my breakfast, I would regret putting it down and heading to my day intrigued on how familiar I am with the characters and how eager for more I am.
Not just for the idea of reading, but for what the book itself brought to me. Enough with that. First thing that impressed me was the name of the chapters whose significance we only get later on the book [spoiler: the ingredients for a turkish dessert: ashure]. So I had that childish joy of reading a book again.
The characters were very very interesting: the Aunties were intriguing each with its particularity and still with that tolerance that made them able to live together. The girls- Asya, the nihilist impressed me with her slowness and blackness, mostly for her freedom of adopting them and stand by them. I resonated with her refuse to accept the past as part of her, her wish to leave a big blank spot behind and stay in that moment with nothing to be charged for.
