5.0 out of 5 stars
Skillfully written exquisite literary phenomenon, 20 July 2013
This remarkable novel is one of a kind!
Seemingly paralleling stories, within a story, which surprisingly collide through a trajectory of time, and then pierce space and follow the perpetuating spiral of existence or nothingness.
A magnificent story dedicated to Love for the Divine, to love of one's the spiritual virtues, a journey of discovering Self and the Divine within Self through love. The store is infused with an exceptional approach, an original alternative on the subject of the Divine.
The novel demands an undivided attention in order to allow itself to lend its true affectionate essence.
I have read (and re-read) a few novels by Elif Shafak, all beautifully woven with admirable passion to convey the Story to its readers. Her books are offerings of marvels inviting the reader to immerse in timeless, thought-provoking themes initiating endless literary and philosophical debate.
