really liked it
bookshelves: turkish
Recommended for: people who hang out in villages, people who came from a village, goat herders, cotton pickers

The story builds with danger at every turn. It has the same power a serial novel has.. or a good serial tv-show or animé. We want to find out what happens because fragile lives forever hang in the balance. As far as plot is concerned (in very broad strokes): It has a love story, some village strife, brigandry and banditry, and a despotic aga (village leader) who drives much of what happens.
