My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I enjoyed reading this action filled novel about the unknown town of Kars and the people conflicts on religion extremism, atheism and the fight for power. Among all of those issues this novel also talks about love. I really like the way Orhan Pamuk writes so smoothly but in this novel I didn’t like how the authors made himself a character at the novel it was a bit confusing at times. The main character “Ka” not only is his name/nickname annoying but he is also annoyingly weak I just dislike such characters where a man acts like a child at the first sign of rejection, he also seems to admire and almost fall for every female character at the novel so what was that about! Overall I enjoyed reading it and I would recommend it.
