Description

Shortlisted for the Booker Prize 2019

Brought to you by Penguin.

'In the first minute following her death, Leila's consciousness began to ebb, slowly and steadily, like a tide receding from the shore. Her brain cells, having run out of blood, were now completely deprived of oxygen. But they did not shut down. Not right away....'

Our brains stay active for 10 minutes after our heart stops beating. For Leila, each minute brings with it a new memory: growing up with her father and his wives in a grand old house in a quiet Turkish town; watching the women gossip and wax their legs while the men went to mosque; sneaking cigarettes and Western magazines on her way home from school; running away to Istanbul to escape an unwelcome marriage; falling in love with a student who seeks shelter from a riot in the brothel where she works. 

Most importantly, each memory reminds Leila of the five friends she met along the way - friends who are now desperately trying to find her....

lovely book

I loved this book, since I love turkey. it is quite dramatic, I actually shed tears over an event that happened. I finished it in three days.

To the women of Istanbul and the city of Istanbul

As Shafak herself says, read stories written by women. You'll know when you read it. Highly recommended.

I keep listening and re-listening!

I am breathless. I have been a fan of Elif Shafak for long, and clearly that's not about to change any time soon. You should buy this. It's worth every dollar! The reading is perfect, the story a sad nectar, and the writing is plainly gorgeous.

Berührung mit einer fremden Kultur

Es lässt sich schwer nachempfinden, wie sich ein weibliches Wesen fühlen muss, das in eine derart misogyne, machoistische Gesellschaft geboren wird. Schon auf dem europäischen Kontinent haben es Frauen nicht immer leicht, gerade durch die wirtschaftliche Unterdrückung und die Negierung des Weiblichen, ein selbstbestimmtes und zufriedenes Leben zu führen, doch wenn man Shafaks unter die Haut gehenden Schilderungen weiblicher Schicksale lauscht, wo Frauen kaum besser - vielleicht sogar schlechter - behandelt werden wie Haustiere, bleibt nur noch tiefe Erschütterung und volles Mitgefühl für die so schrecklich drangsalierten Frauen in Kleinasien.

pulls you in from the start

A moving, riveting story written in beautiful language. I couldn't put it down and when the story ended, I immediately downloaded another book by Elif Shafak.
