Without a Country Reviews

  • Selin

    1930 lardan günümüze kronolojik sıra ile meydana gelmiş siyasi/toplumsal olayların herbirinden bahsedicem diye zorlama yazılmış bir roman.

  • Seda Yetik

    İlk 100 sayfa iyi gerisi berbat. Yazar her şeyi yazayım derdine girip hikayeyi dağıtmış ve dağılmış.

  • Harmonyofbooks

    Elsa, sahilde koşturan çocuklarıyla torunlarını göstererek, "Şu hale bak, Gerhard," dedi, "biz Yuhidi bir Alman çifttik ama Amerikalı bir oğlumuz oldu, Türk kızımız, Hristiyan ve Müslüman torunlarımız var. Bu nasıl kadermiş?"

    "Renkli bir kadermiş Elsa, bizim hayat çizgimizi biz değil, Hitler çizdi!"

    5/5🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

    Art arda dört nesil kadının öyküsünü anlatan bu romana bayıldım. Yazardan okuduğum ilk eseriydi ve sırada elime alacağı kitabı için sabırsızlanıyorum. Hitler'in Almanya'yı kuşattığı zaman dilim

    Very well written

    This book was very well written. It kept me wanting to continue to read it. Historical fiction seems to be my favorite genre, because I learn at the same time as I’m entertained. This book covered at least 4 generations of one family’s struggle with finding a country which would tolerate all nationalities, as their family blended with the people around them. The only reason it did not receive 5 stars was because, in my opinion, the author could have stopped before the last gene

    I Couldn't Put This Book Down

    I don't usually give a book 5 stars but this one deserves it. I'm not going to go into the plot. You can get that from the other reviews. This is a beautifully written historical novel that is well researched. There is not a dull page in it and I couldn't put it down. It gives a great insight into Turkish history since the 1930's. By all means don't let this one pass you by.

    An Interesting Trip Throu Time

    This book wasn't exactly what I expected but it was an enjoyable read. The author presented an historical overview of a little less than a century in Turkey from the point of view of a particular family. As I commented to a friend of mine; it kind of reminded me of the Brady Bunch, but in the Middle East.

    Açıkcası yerli yazarlar içinde Ayşe Kulin benim için çok farklı bir noktadadır. Bunun en büyük sebebi güçlü kaleminin yanı sıra olaylara bakış açısı ve bunu gerçekleştirirken seçtiği konuların tam merkez oluşu. İşte, kanadı kırık kuşlarda böyle bir kitap. Dört farklı dönemi anlatıyor olsada, tüm dönemlerin geçişleri ve içindeki paralerlikleri çok güzel ortaya çıkarmış. Kitabın bu noktada yakın tarihimiz ve onun geleceği hakkında ışık tutması zaten okunması için başlıca sebep. Bunun yanında Kulin ...more

    Historical fiction is one of my favourite genres, especially stories where Jews and the Nazis are concerned. This book was a little different to many stories that i have read, mainly due to the family making Turkey their home after fleeing Germany. This was a very enjoyable book and the further i read, the quicker i was turning the pages. I am not going to write about the story, as i do prefer one to read the book for themselves, but i do recommend this wonderful saga.

    My thanks to Netgalley and
