Praise for Esmahan Aykol:

"Kati could be the love child of Miss Marple and NPR's Andrei Codrescu. It doesn't matter who done it. What matters is that Aykol uses the genre to tell us more about the world than we're used to."—Newsday

The mystery aspect was mild. The search for the culprit(s) is slow and as expected enlightening. The victim was a distant acquaintance of Kati’s and as she peels back the layers and inner circle of this woman’s life things become very interesting as secrets and possible motives are exposed. The drawn out narrative can drag a bit, however Kati’s often brash personality keeps you entertained.

Lettura piacevole , per questo che li ho letti tutti e tre. L'intreccio giallo per me è più uno sfondo , la parte più interessante è la descrizione dell'ambiente, città e personaggi turchi e di Istanbul.

Turkish setting is interesting. Story is a crazy quilt of all the buttons one pushes in writing a mystery. Not satisfying to solve.

Un discreto libro da viaggio. Vocabolario poco ricercato ma storia interessante.
La parte più bella le citazioni di zone della città appena visitate :)

Rimangono le descrizioni della città, ma la protagonista si fa sempre più presuntuosa ed irritante el a trama è piuttosto priva di interesse.
