Interesting premise bogged down with endlessly repetitious considerations of the anxiety-ridden protagonist's inner monologue. His considerations of loneliness, corruption, doomed love and destiny could've been explored in a third of the length with more energy and engagement. Underwhelming at best.

It is a good book. the writer is giving a lot of information in order for the reader to understand the culture and the various interactions that affect the story. the only thing that i feel i should mention is that there is a lot of characters who take part in the story, meaning that the reader has to remember them all in order to understand the rest of the story. overall, i believe that it is a good read.

I started this book with expectations that I would be learning more on the depth of Turkey's dualism between their secular and religious societies. I was also looking for more on their own identity between being an Islamic nation and that of being within the sphere of the European Union. Thinking back on the book now I see how it fulfilled that more than I felt while reading the book. I was initially turned off by Ka's romantic pinning but now while writing this review seeing Ka's over-wrought romanticism as metaphor for modern Turkey's identity of itself. "I'm happy now so therefore I will feel great pain soon. I can see that easier now as an observation Mr. Pamuk has of his homeland's identity. If I were to discuss this book further with other readers I' m sure more could be said about he the book and the writer. This to me represents a greater depth of the story than I originally gave the book. If a review requires a recommendation as to reading or not reading the book, I would have to give it a thumbs up, with the caveat of reading the book in a book group.

Very good, by this excellent author. It creates a vivid atmosphere of a small town Turkey, with the intense conflict between
the lay militaries and the radical muslims. The interest is conveyed on how convoluted, often tragic personal histories interact.
By this auhtor don't miss My Name is Red, the best novel I have read in years

I enjoyed reading this book. It was highly educational about the Middle East, Turkish traditions and perceptions of Western Culture. I learned a few things and found it very easy to read.

Couldn't put it down, even though at times, I hated it. So well written, you feel you are there. It has a rhythm that mimics the constant snow fall. A must read before visiting Turkey.

Good novel, but its great ambitions are not realized in the end

I found the story somewhat confusing, what with all the factions involved, unfamiliar names and skipping around of time and places. However, one is certainly left very aware of the problems in Turkey and how they affect the locals.
