Customer Review

on 18 June 2006
I bought this book after reading its brilliant review by Natasha Cooper in the Times. How right she was. Jason Goodwin's writing is nothing short of superb - a fabulous plot in the midst of descriptions of 1830s Istanbul which evoke this city to such a degree that you have to pinch yourself to rememeber that you're not actually there. The book's hero Yashim, is the best of investigators, clever and kind, but troubled, and his friend the Polish ambassador is a treasure. I read the book in one take. I look forward to reading it again and hope, too, to see a sequel out soon. Read this book, it's writing at its best.
