Ugh, I can’t stand the flowery prose with the sinister plot, endlessly repeating itself. Good god, is this what best selling authors are churning out? In the dumpster this one goes.

A modern fable on illegal immigrants

I liked this book a lot. Written by a Canadian author, I found the perspective similar to how many Canadians view U.S. anti-immigrant policies. It was well told using vivid characters in fictional locations. A modern fable of sorts on current world events - not unlike Pearl Buck’s Good Earth from a century ago.

Keeps to the formula

Still good, but no longer feels fresh. To me the characters are not interesting any more. Much more emphasis is spent on story detail than character development.

My first book by this author

A cute story that could have been told in ten pages. The writing is very simple (and annoying). The story is entirely predictable.

Always a favourite

One of my favourite series. Particularly good narration. Lovely Victorian -era setting. Well developed and loveable characters.

Atmospheric. Good story.

Not a favourite, but an interesting listen/read. I liked the sensuality and atmosphere. For me, character development could have been better. Why do I care about these characters? I really don’t.

Good story helped by great narration

I liked the story a lot. interesting characters, but not compelling. I don’t know what or who I was rooting for. The excellent narration added an enigmatic feeling not found in the words themselves.

A nice story. Good narration. Wasn’t compelling enough for me to download the next volume.

I love this series!

Clever and really well written. I have thoroughly enjoyed all of the books in this series. The narration is fantastic as well.

Unparalleled imagery and moodiness

It is no surprise to me that Mr. Pamuk won a Pulitzer Prize for literature. This is the third book of his that I have read and again I am impressed with the quality of his writing, the vivid imagery and the character development. It has been a week since I finished this book and I am still thinking about it.
