Finally finished the first Orhan Pamuk, which I had been wanting to read for quite a while. Its an interesting book.
A poet returns to his hometown in Turkey, to find love, and a city caught between religious extremism and Ataturks followers gone astray.
It has its moments, lines which make you stop, consider and reread them. Then again it has its moments where you feel aargh. But on balance I'd really like to try another of his books.
