    1. Generally, when a book starts out with a chapter entitled I Am A Corpse, you know it s going to be pretty good The novel is set up so that each chapter introduces a different narrator, including but not limited to , Black, Black s uncle, Shekure, a dog, a horse, the murderer and various artists in the workshop This type of structure for a mystery novel isn t new Wilkie Collins, for example, employed it several times, most notably in The Moonstone and it is an effective way to structure a story s [...]

    2. My Name is Red is as gorgeous as these illuminations.The narrative flows with the weight of such a lush artistic style.It is a dazzling brilliance that creates a languid beautyat bogs the story down so much I couldn t tell you what the fuck happened.

    4. On a high version I am called Black, I longed for my dearest Shekure for twelve years I, Shekure, not quite sure what was I doing in this story I am called Butterfly, I was the one who drew the Death and Mia thought I was the murderer I am called Stork, I was the one who drew the Tree and Butterfly always envy me as I was talented without the help from our master I am called Olive, I was the one who rendered the Satan and drew the exquisite horse I am your beloved uncle, I was preparing a book [...]

    5. This book is as much about art as it is a historical novel First the novel A tale of miniaturist painters in Istanbul during the late 1500 s One of them is a murderer who kills one of his co miniaturists and later his former master The deceased master s daughter is in a religious and political limbo her soldier husband has been missing for four years, but with no body and no witnesses to his death, she can t get a divorce and move on with her life She wants to find a new husband and a father for [...]

    6. My fickle heart longs for the West when I m in the East and for the East when I m in the West.My other parts insist I be a woman when I m a man and a man when I m a woman.How difficult it is being human, even worse is living a human s life.I only want to amuse myself frontside and backside, to be Eastern and Western both.This is Pamuk s enduring, never ending obsession He s written fiction and non fiction, journal articles and newspaper bites, and given endless interviews on this theme He s even [...]

    7. I am in two minds about this book.Obviously, it is an important work It showcases the miniaturist tradition of the Islamic world, and uses the cloistered world of miniaturists to explore the difference in philosophies between the East and the West It was all the interesting to me because I have been fascinated by this difference ever since I began viewing paintings with serious interest In the East, perspective does not exist the painting flows seamlessy over space and time whereas in the West [...]

    8. During nine snowy, cold, winter days, in the fabulous city of Istanbul, the capital of the Ottoman Empire, at its height, in the reign of Sultan Murat 111, there occurred a brutal murder, not the last one , the year 1591 At the bottom of an abandoned well, the mangled body of Elegant Effendi, nicknamed Red, a miniaturist, who had worked for the Sultan is found, but not before the corpse tells his sad story How the victim was lured by a person that was thought a close friend, with promises of ric [...]

    9. I believe in the fact that there is nothing as fact, everything the eye beholds is the individual reality of the beholder, what the eye sees and mind translates it as sight is a phenomenon of individual perception, and this is where the artist discerns himself from a mere beholder, he is, simultaneously a beholder and a creator, or we may say the re creator, his strokes alive the scenery, his colors spark the stars, his art immortals the mortality of life, and his hands vouchsafe timelessness to [...]

    10. Arguably the best novel of Orhan Pamuk Set in Istanbul during the height of Ottoman power, this novel is a tribute to the art of painting as well as a fascinating murder mystery which will keep you hooked till the end The unusual narrative is felt with full force right from the start as you read the first chapter, starting with the voice of a corpse at the bottom of the well wondering who was the wretched man that killed him Then ensues a beautiful exploration of the 16th century Istanbul s art [...]

    11. I tried very hard to really like this book But, I suppose it s impossible to succeed in everything.My Name Is Red is both historical fiction and a murder mystery It takes place in 1591 according to the timeline at the end of the book The over arching motion of the plot centers around the death of a master miniturist in the Sultan s court The death is revealed in the first chapter, though the reasons surrounding the his death are much slower in being revealed What is known, almost at the outset, [...]

    12. I could not help but think of the film Daisies Sedmikrasky, dir Vera Chytilova , that shameless classic of the Czech New Wave while reading Ohran Pamuk s My Name is Red That brilliant psychedelic film of the 60 s portrays two incessant, silly girls who seem to want to emphasize their existence by playing pranks on other people and being undeniably obnoxious They are terrified at the idea of being forgotten of not existing Similarly, in Pamuk s epic novel of conspiring miniaturists, of love and d [...]

    13. Books, which we mistake for consolation, only add depth to our sorrow For the sake of a delightful and convincing story, there isn t a lie Orhan wouldn t deign to tell This is a lot like The Name of the Rose a very, very, very well researched historical crime fiction where some people, who aren t exactly detective, are searching for a criminal There are other similarities too, both books have a very big library the access to which is restricted Both make commentary on position of women in societ [...]

    14. Some stories sink their teeth into your gut and don t let go Others offer cerebral pleasures works by Borges comes to mind This is the second than the first, and I m okay with that First and foremost, there are quite a few chapters in this book that read like a chapter in a book on the history of Islamic illuminations than a chapter in a novel In this respect, however, Pamuk can legitimately point to past antecedents in this vein Tolstoy for one in War and Peace, Melville for another in Moby [...]

    15. 2007 0 24 0 0 605 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 _ _ 0 0 _ _ 0 0 0 _ _0 0 0 0 0 _ _ 0 0 0 0 0 0 .0 Despite the fact that the style is captivating, Orhan s philosophy is intense malice He knows how beatifies the ugliness, makes you desire the abnormality and repulsiveness A kind of black comedy a grotesque From now on I will be scared each time I look to such oriental miniature I just don t know what to say I sighed deeply when I finished itThey say Orhan is talented Yes indeed, but talented as a devil

    16. Saying I liked it or didn t like it doesn t really capture the complexity of my experience with this book Part murder mystery, part love story, and part historical novel about the book art in the ottoman empire.I thought it was right up my alley Maybe I expected to have of an emotional connection but it was all very intellectual and somehow that frustrated meurned up my stomach which was quite contented on the diet of all fluff, all the time Reading this was like eating roasted beets with rosem [...]

    17. It s not often you find books that start with the speech of an already dead character It s actually pretty damn rare to find dead bodies speaking at all, wouldn t you agree Well, Pamuk apparently didn t get the memo Because that is exactly how his wonderful work, My Name is Red , starts The body of Elegant Effendi is rotting in a well, somewhere in Istanbul During life, he was a miniaturist, an artistry that is usually found in Ottoman books, and his talent was known as one of the best of his da [...]

    18. To God belongs the East and the West Al Qur an, Al Baqarah ayat 115 I had abandoned My Name is Red for how long I can t remember The brilliance of it was untouched, what a shame But after reading Other Colours an amazing essay collection also by Orhan Pamuk , I thought I should give Mr Pamuk another shot, and boy, how much I enjoyed the novel And I understand why Pamuk deserves the Nobel prize He s the kind of writer that can bring out the cultural richness but at the same time using it to promo [...]

    19. It s a rare pleasure to read a book so richly layered Contained within what is essentially a murder mystery is the history of Islamic art, miniaturists in particular, and its clash with European Frankish art in the late 15th early 16th centuries, romance, a social history of Istanbul at that time, religious extremism, a seditious storyteller in a coffeehouse, Ottoman history, multiple parables and historic tales bathed in myth Pamuk tells the story through many different voices, each giving thei [...]

    20. It s not a historical, though there is sort of history in it Istanbul, Ottoman Empire, 1591 The mystery death of two master miniaturists doesn t make it a murder mystery novel either It s not a philosophical novel though there are lots of discussions about illusrtation in European style concerning perspective, and traditional Eastern illustrating, which sees the world in the way Allah would see it What amazed me is, how Pamuk has taken a now forbiden discussion, to 5 centuries back, to stablish [...]
