I finished it and it was free. That's as positive as it gets.
Insipid story with weak, unbelievable plot. It may just be me but I get really irritated reading the same word or phrase in a book over and over again. I think it's lazy writing. The word "Bosphorus" is mentioned at least a hundred times. This and "Ottoman Empire" seem to be the only way the author can think of to describe Turkey.
I understand that the author is French but the English translation I read is full of Americanisms. One of the main characters loves to paint "Intersections".. Really? and (SPOILER) is introduced as a grouchy Mr Heckels (Friends fans will know) type character, so it's really a stretch that he becomes the man she has been looking for all her life!
Why so much emphasis was placed on the skylight of her apartment (they were known as flats in England at the time of the story) is beyond me. The ending was rushed, so any hint of a twist which might have made the rest of the book tolerable, was removed.
I was relieved to get to the end. Unsure how this type of book gets so many stars on Amazon or Goodreads.
This book is slow moving with lots of boring dialogue. It made me drowsy every time I picked it up. About half way through, I decided to skim through the rest of the book. The ending was as predicted, parents not really her parents, falls in love the neighbor. Glad it over and I can move on
For me, this book started off like a fun, casual, lightweight read. Then it bogged down and down and down. It’s part fairy tale and part romance, with a short but grim history lesson, which was foretold too many times to be as shocking as the author perhaps intended. I found it very predictable and, at times, illogical to the point of being silly. I also found the dream sequences to be very tiresome -- it is so boring to read about someone else's dreams. I felt a lot of the book was filler and kept wishing it would move along. It’s not really bad, and some people may enjoy it. It just wasn’t my thing.
SPOILERS. SPOILER ALERT.Somewhat boring, repetitious, a little silly. And I just don't know why I would want to have read this. There's no Reason. I STARTED then said no. Then flipped to end. Said to self: "This cant be, went back and read the parts i passed over...It doesn't talk about the genocide of a people that still is not talking about today. But technically what the story should have been about. This girl woman whatever she is goes on a free trip and then starts to argue With the person paying for it. Not saying she has to kiss his butt, but she could be polite. Nowhere in this book, nowhere Did I see Any relationship developing with The female lead. Nowhere.never not a smidge. But Last page in the book damn there there it was big as day. Wha- what what the??? How do you have a perfume career That you actually have some money From it during this time In the world? Really. And did she really just dump Ignore never communicate with any of her friends In England?? Why not? What was A very strange book that I I'm still very confused about Why it was written And I don't get the point Of the story at all. I'm not sure if it was a romance A coming of age a self discovery I have no idea. And I really didn't care for it too much of anybody in the book he appeared to be an alcoholic she was silly her friends apparently weren't really her friends cause she stopped talking to them. For no reason. For no reason literally. But wrote long rambling letters to them- that she never mailed. It was like a bad verbose version of Amalie. I am not saying not to read it, I am just saying You may not want to bother. Maybe it lost something in translation.
