Also available on the WondrousBooks blog.

Puslu Kıtalar Atlası (The Atlas of Misty Continents) - from the first moment I laid eyes on the title, I wanted to read this book. I believe I first saw it in Turkey in 2015 and the title just sounded so beautiful to me that years later I asked my mom to buy it for me while on a trip to Turkey.

My hopes were indeed justified as this is quite probably the best Turkish book I've read so far, and I've probably read as many Turkish, as Bulgarian books in m

It is a bit different and fantastic expression. Time passes very quick while to read the book. On the other hand, people can learn some interesting tactics and conquests from Ottoman Empire history

One of the best books I have ever read. This is a definite classic in the making. An expansive novel that covers an array of interesting characters and unpredictable events. The language used is incomparable and impressive. I wish I had read it before.

ihsan oktay anar unfortunately has a very limited readership. as far as I understand from this site anar is not recognized abroad. I must say firstly if the author had lived in a Western country except Turkey is his situation may be very different. in this case, of course, having a low profile and introverted life also has an effect.

To mention this book: a very intense philosophical subtext processed inches per inch of all pages. it is decorated with funnystories and summarized with a simple sen

The story was interesting, but the book was really hard to finish. It just didn't flow smoothly for me. I think it might be beacuse it was in Turkish and it's been many years since the last time I read anything in Turkish other than newspapers. Pathetic for me! ...more

The book published in 1995 and it is written in Ottoman-Turkish which have many words from Arabic/Persian language. Modern Turkey no longer uses these words, and some do not even exist in the national dictionary. I had to check the Ottoman dictionary 2-3 times per page, so it was not an enjoyable experience.

Beyond the language, the book was lost while trying to touch many grounds: nihilism, dictatorship, religion, and physics. The connection between sections was original yet not groundbreaking.

Amazing story held in late Ottoman Istanbul.
Main character Uzun Ihsan Efendi write a nowel to his son which stated all of this world is my imagination, everything could be change whenever I want.

An extraordinary story of ordinary people.
Rendekar, Vardapet, Uzun İhsan Efendi are some of the characters.

No doubt it is a an interesting mixture of fantasy and history. But still I do find the balance of facts and imagination in the book very well done. If you enjoy to learn the adventures of different characters at the same time with the main storyline, this book is just for you.

There were like 5 or 6 currency (zolota, sevillan gold, venetian borbota, ottoman gold, low valued akche etc.) and 3-4 artillery names (sahi, kolonborne, etc.) throughout this book. This is not a good observation maybe, but while I can count 20-30 current currencies, I don't know any specific artillery name. I think that was a good recreation of something Ottoman, not fully accurate, but feels definitely different from nowadays. And I see these two concepts, both the currency and artillery conce ...more

The author's language is magnificent.The story is really fascinating. I had a unique adventure in fairy tales.
Too deep and jarring. Father's son, father's dream... Maybe!

This book was a funnier version of White Castle by Pamuk. The setting being old Istanbul, and the fantastic elements together with the language he used made it a very enjoyable read to me.

“Bu dünyada insanların korktuğu tek şey öğrenmekti. Acıyı, susuzluğu ve üzüntüyü öğrenmek onların uykularını kaçırıyor, bu yüzden daha rahat döşeklere, daha leziz yemeklere ve daha neşeli dostlara sığınıyorlardı. Dünyaya olan kayıtsızlıkları bazen o kerteye varıyordu ki, kendilerine altın ve gümüşten, zevk ve sefadan, lezzet ve şehvetten bir alem kurup, keder ve ızdırap fikirlerinin kafalarına girmesine izin vermiyorlardı.” 62 likes
