This is one of the best novels I have read from Elif Safak, Safak is a female novelist in Turkey and is quite successful, some of her novels and stories have been translated into English and The Bastard of Istanbul is one of them. It tells the story of a family which is dominated by females. The novel is quite entertaining, the characters are all different from each other, 3 generations of women are living in the same household, mother, daughters and the grand child.
The end of the book is definetely the best part, from the events that are developing throughtout the book, some readers can guess what will happen at the end.
As well as descibing the difference between middle aged women and a young teenager, it also draws a portrait of modern Istanbul and how people communicate with each other, how they dress, where they hang out, the religious involvement and of course I shouldn't miss the main part of the novel which is the Armenian Turkish relatinships.
You'll enjoy this novel if you like Turkish literature.
