    My Name Is Red

    Excellant tale of jealousy, love, murder, mystery and history. Anyone 'Pamuking' for they first time could know his formulating character, and the length and intricacy will touch him enthralled forever.

    A great historical novel

    This is like no book you have ever read. Loosely based on historical events of late XVIth century Turkey, it is a tale of court intrigue, murder, with a heady dose of philosophy and discussion of what art is, and its role in society. This brings about discussion of the differing viewpoints of Islamic and western society, ostensibly at the time of the Renaissance, but perfectly relevant today. Each chapter is written from the viewpoint of a different character, which allows each of the subjects to be treated from varying views. Fascinating! One of the chapters is written to express a dog's opinion, another the opinion of a tree. The thinking by the characters is often so convoluted that you need no longer wonder about the meaning of Byzantine. Somehow, this extraordinarily original work functions and is a truly enjoyable read. This work is from 1998 or so. In 2006, Pamuk received the Nobel Prize for Literature. It's not hard to see why.
