    Peri, our central character, is a native of Istanbul who has a close relationship with her secular, hard drinking father and a tense relationship with her devout Muslim mother. The novel begins as the adult Peri makes her way to an ostentatious dinner party with her sullen teenage daughter. En route they have a dangerous and potentially deadly encounter that causes Peri to reflect upon what she is capable of doing. The rest of the novel alternate...

    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

    I received a copy of this book on Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review."I was always in that limbo between yes and no. No stranger to faith, no stranger to doubt..."4.5*I was really happy to receive Three Daughters of Eve on Netgalley, as I'd recently read an interview with the author and thought the book sounded fascinating. It certainly lived up to expectations. The book is set both in the past and the present, focusing on Peri as a stud...

    This is a compelling tale of a woman, Peri (Nazperi), who gets shaken out of her stable, well-adjusted mode of upper-class living in contemporary Istanbul by a random mugging event and by the responses she surprises herself by making. Here’s the effective hook in the first sentence of the book:It was an ordinary spring day in Istanbul, a long and leaden afternoon like so many others, when she discovered, with a hollowness in her stomach, that s...

    بادئ ذي بدء الأربعة نجوم هذه ليست تقييم حيادي بالمرة بل تقييم بناءًا على أسباب وظروف شخصية بحتة؛ فهذه ليست رواية استثنائية ولا هي رواية دسمة على الرغم من عدد صفحاتها الطويل للغاية بل هي رواية قليلة الأحداث تعتمد على الوصف والتحليل أكثر من أي شيء آخ...

    Now and then when you finish a book, you get that warm feeling inside, that feeling of love and gratitude for an author who has been able to draw you into the life of another person, to explore the background and thoughts of someone from a totally different culture and upbringing, in a way that can help explain and explore some of your own deep thoughts and idiosyncrasies regarding God, religion, deep cultural beliefs, the immature jealousies of ...

    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 ...
