"Volim te lijepo, suho i spokojno, više kao sliku nego kao živo tijelo, više kao sjećanje nego kao nešto što se žudi. I sve češće mislim da si ti čovjek kojega treba tako voljeti, kojega treba tako voljeti, kojega se jedino tako voli na pravi način, onako kako on može podnijeti. Kao da si sasvim malo živ čovjek, kao da si više nečija zamisao nego živ pravi čovjek! "

Baš sam se obradovala ovoj knjizi - ispostavilo se da sam je za dvadeset i više godina od prvog čitanja gotovo sasvim zaboravila (i da je, normalno, tada nisam najbolje shvatila). Udarna kombinacija - istorijski roman, borhesovska postmoderna, metafizika, malko fantastike, korišćenje detektivskog zapleta (avaj, nerazrešenog tj. nerazrešivog), odnos vlasti i pojedinca, nepouzdani pripovedači na kilo (i to policajci/islednici koje sve odreda zamišljam kao Slobodana Aligrudića, šta mogu, to je jače ...more

Poslije Derviša Sušića, Karahasan je među prvim autorima koji je odlučio smjestiti roman u tako egzotično ozračje Orijenta (naročito ako uzmemo u obzir da se radnja događa u 8. stoljeću za vrijeme rane vladavine Abasida).

Knjiga tekstualno i nema neku dubinu za mene, a za neupućenog čitaoca koji se ne razumije u poruke sufizma i simbolike ljubavi u sufizmu još manje će biti jasno i daleko površnije.
