Havva'nın Üç Kızı Reviews
Struggling through the clogged streets of Istanbul, Peri is driving through traffic to attend yet another stifling dinner party of the elite. With her almost teenage daughter in tow, she mistakenly throws her purse to the backseat, and with unlocked doors, someone from the outside grabs her personal belongings. Peri pulls the car over and runs. She confronts the beggar, but he divulges the contents of her purse to the ground. A photo slides out. A man, and three women. The distant memory of Oxfo ...more

İnanca, inançsızlığa, arayışa, farklı kadınlara ve aşka dair baş döndürücü bir yolculuk...
Καλέ, ελάτε πίσω. Στα ελληνικά θα τα πω. Ούτε ένα αστείο δε σηκώνετε;
Λοιπόν, μετά τον Παμούκ συνεχίζω το ταξίδι μου στη σύγχρονη τουρκική λογοτεχνία με την Ελίφ Σιαφάκ.
Λίγο πολύ και η Σιαφάκ καταπιάνεται με θέματα που απασχόλησαν και τον Παμούκ:
Την πάλη μεταξύ κράτους θρησκείας και κοσμικού κράτους, την πάλη της Δύσης με την Ανατολή, και την πάλη της παράδοσης και του εκσυγχρονισμού.
Αυτό το βιβλίο πά ...more
Elif Shafak never fails me.
Every time I read something for Elif I love her even more, I can understand why some people don't enjoy her books, you have to pay attention to the details, to the conversations not to the events, and that's why she is my favorite author <3 life is about the journey not the destination right? :P
In this amazing novel Elif tell the story of Peri, Shirin and Mona.

Sadly, I didnt enjoy this one as much as I thought I would.
Elif Shafak’s new novel reveals such a timely confluence of today’s issues that it seems almost clairvoyant. Sexual harassment, Islamist terrorism, the rising tension between the faithful and the secular, and the gaping chasm between the rich and the poor — all play out in the pages of “Three Daughters of Eve.” That hyper-relevance is one of the reasons Shafak is so popular in her native Turkey and around the world. The author, who now lives in London, speaks in a multivalent voice that captures ...more
(3.5) My first from Shafak, and overall an absorbing story of religion versus secularism. The title trio are young women who meet as international students at Oxford, where they are all drawn to Professor Azur, a charismatic and unconventional don who teaches an infamous seminar on God. Shirin is a boisterous Iranian, while Mona is a feminist Muslim from Egypt. However, the novel’s focus is very much on Peri, from Istanbul. In the present day she’s a wife and mother on her way to a glitzy party ...more
