I’m not a book-worm. To be perfectly honest, I don’t read much. If the book does not get me within 50 pages, I usually leave it.
A couple of months ago, a book in Turkey became very popular, usually I keep a suspicion distance to over-promoted pop-culture items. Anyway, this time I failed and decided to buy it. (Note, I said buy, not read. 🙂 ). Because it contained essences from the great Sufi, Rumi.
So I did. I started reading it and it really got me. I finished it within 3-4 days. It’s one of the best I’ve read in a very long time.
If you are wondering why fundemantalist terrorism is not being able to root in Turkey where anti-USA stance is the second highest of all countries, you could see some roots of Turkish pysche among other very good points on love and today’s paradoxes. It’s an amazing novel.
I just wanted to share it.
Here’s is the link of amazon with review:
If any of you reads it I’d love to have yor opinion.
