Reading: The Bastard of Istanbul


Grabbed this book while waiting for our flight back from Turkey. And after reading the blurb at the back, I couldn’t resist taking it home with me.

Magic realism + family + women is a combination in novels I find hard to resist. 

I didn’t regret it. Loved how Shafak’s story flows and twists. I’m now looking forward to stumbling across her other books the next time I’m in transit.
