Didn't even come close to finishing this one. I don't mind a story about a woman in a harem, every once in a while. But the book begins with a man who has a wife and three children, not to mention a woman he keeps tucked away somewhere. Then he finds a portrait of a woman in a store and falls in love with it and decides to go find her. So without a goodbye for his family, he sets off to find his "true love". What the fuck. I can't even begin to like or care about him and if he manages to find "t [...]

رواية بلا مضمونطريقة السرد والحبكة ضعيفة للغايةالربط بين الأحداث مفككالترجمة عقيمةوأخيراً إذ كانت هذه هى الرومانسيةفإذا أن أكرها

رواية مفككة. لا اعرف ان كانت الرواية الأصلية سيئة هكذا ام الترجمة هضمت حقها.

أنصح بها لمن أراد قراءة خفيفه ورقيقه بين قرائتين دسمتين

Breve storia ambientata nel 1868 e permeata di romantico fascino orientale. Sembra quasi di essere in un racconto delle tanto citate Le mille e una notte. Dalla Francia si viaggia fino ad Istambul, poteva dunque mancare la celebre sultana Nakshidil? Il suo mito rivive grazie al racconto della sua Poupée, la nostra Sherazade. Eventi e personaggi storici si fondono con quelli inventati e creduti reali. La magia di un incontro predestinato, la realizzazione del kismet dei personaggi, il Reve à de [...]

مملة سرد لكلام زى الحدوتة بتاعت الاطفال ولا يوجد بها اى عمق

تحديث: قراءة من عام 2008--رواية قصيرة رومانسية هادئة و خفيفة، زمن السلطان عبد العزيز بين جارية شرقية منفية في قصر الدموع (و هو القصر الذي كانت تنفى إليه الحريم اللواتي لم يعد مرغوبا بهن في قصر السلطان) و بين فرنسي غربي تحدثت عن الحلم الثنائي؟ هل سمعتم به؟ حين يدخل شخص و يستدعي الآ [...]

I honestly almost stopped reading after the first 5 pages. The book is about a successful married man with children and a winery who finds a picture of a beautiful and mysterious woman and chooses to leave his entire life to go in search of this woman in the painting. There isn't any character development and really no plot because after the man finds this woman nothing really needs to happen. There were times when the writing was colorful and interesting but overall everything happened quickly [...]

A delightful little book! Told in the spirit of a fairytale for adults, it explores the idea of love beyond the confines of ethics and reality. For some readers the complete disregard for morality can be off-putting, but the story invites contemplation of social conventions and why we so willingly conform.

I really enjoyed this book - it describes a life that seems so unreal to me, yet exists. So glad I read this.

Lousy story - dream sequences, bad morals, madness, etc. Brings in Empress Eugenie of France and other historical figures, but weird story. Not recommended!

كتاب خفيف سريع، رواية خيالية لا تخلو من بعض المتعة و الكثير من اللاشيء لا بأس به

Good novel for starting readers

Great read but you'll need to take the "classic American cinema love story" mentality and shelf it or you'll miss the romantic attitude that each characters story has. It's the story of a man who learns deep lesson about love and destiny, a women whom life grooms in a dream so she may live in a world that can only be called a dream, two monarchs who seem to be destined to be but have separate destinies but are the rungs in the other characters' climbs to their destiny. It is so beautifully writt [...]

Tarzı Alessandro Baricco'nun İpek'ine benzeyen bu romanı yorulmadan okudum. Özellikle sempati duyduğum bir karakter olmadığı gibi kitap boyunca aşkın derinliğini de pek fazla hissetmedim. Kitap kahramanları için herşeylerini, bütün bir hayatlarını geride bırakıp hayallerinin peşinden koşmak ne de kolay! Ve herşey yerlebir olduğunda en baştan başlamak"Aşk, yalnızca ıstırap çekenleri avutmak için acıya verilen bir addır. Istırap çekeriz çünkü ya sahip olamad [...]

Just ok-this was just too choppy for me to truly get into it and too short. I didn't feel any connection to the characters. There were so many places to expand-Empress Eugenie's perspective on the harem, Poupee's life in the palace of tears, etc but with one paragraph in a chapter sometimes, I just didn't connect.

So good, set in the 1860's about a man that is searching for a mysterious woman in a painting. She wrote "harem, the world behind the veil"I want to read that too

Wow I finished this book in two sittings. I loved it! The book is magically written, good flow and fast read, it definitely took me to another time and place.

Apparently only good as a first read. Gave it 5 stars first time around, forgot I read it, found it in my bookcase, read it again and found it to be dragging along and kind of dull. Read once only :)

A strange little story that is imbued with the enigmatic and eccentric characteristics of the Orient. This fairy tale of a strange and inexplicable love is told in a rich and enchanting way.

Lovely details about life in the Second Empire. Worth, Eugenie, the Suez Canal

الرواية لم يعجبني فيها النهاية لم احس بمعنى الخاتمة و الربط بين الأحداث ركيك

This book is told in the style of a fairy tale and while I enjoyed it, I was really left wanting more. More character development and action specifically. It was just a little to trite for me.
