"Since his boyhood in a poor village in Central Anatolia, Mevlut Karataş has fantasized about what his life would become. Not getting as far in school as he'd hoped, at the age of twelve he comes to Istanbul--'the center of the world'--and is immediately enthralled by both the old city that is disappearing and the new one that is fast being built. He follows his father's trade, selling boza (a traditional mildly alcoholic Turkish drink) on the street, and hoping to become rich, like other villagers who have settled the desolate hills outside the booming metropolis. But luck never seems to be on Mevlut's side. As he watches his relations settle down and make their fortunes, he spends three years writing love letters to a girl he saw just once at a wedding, only to elope by mistake with her sister. And though he grows to cherish his wife and the family they have, he stumbles toward middle age in a series of jobs leading nowhere. His sense of missing something leads him sometimes to the politics of his friends and intermittently to the teachings of a charismatic religious guide. But every evening, without fail, Mevlut still wanders the streets of Istanbul, selling boza and wondering at the "strangeness" of his mind, the sensation that makes him feel different from everyone else, until fortune conspires once more to let him understand at last what it is he has always yearned for."--Jacket.… (mere)

This is a great book. The central character is a timid, good looking street vendor who is in love with Istanbul. He watches as Istanbul morphs over the years while his life goes on and on. He falls in love with a beautiful girl he comes face to face with at a wedding. He writes love letters for three years but a cousin tells him the girl's name is actually her less beautiful older sister. The cousin wants to marry the younger sister and helps Mevlut elope with the older sister who believes he was writing to her. He is too timid to tell her and eventually falls totally in love with her. This has family issues as the families negotiate the changing environment. I'm sure if I new more about Istanbul and the many events that unfold in Turkey over sixty years I would have better understood what Pamuk was doing to weave a tale of both the city and the people who lived there. I recommend it highly. ( )

Pamuk: Magnificent as always. This is a particularly special novel about the weaving, winding city of Istanbul and its social, political and individual characteristics. Every unique soul is developed to the point of existence. Even the sprawling places that Pamuk has invented live through his writing. And the duality of events and circumstances in the protagonists life, both mundane and unusual, are told in the balancing and unbalancing of the boza scales he balances across his back. A beautiful novel that reads like a painting. ( )

4.5* for this audiobook edition narrated by John Lee (whose marvelous voice sounds like Sean Connery to me!); 4* for the book itself

I had a difficult time getting interested in this book at first, partly due to my unfamiliarity with both cultural and geographic landmarks that I assume most Turks would understand easily and partly due to the fact that these unfamiliar terms and names were coming to me in auditory form rather than written.

However, once I I had gotten the basic characters straight in my mind (and done some Googling about certain terms and places), I found the story fascinating. Basically this is the story of Mevlut (and the city of Istanbul) from the time in the 1970s when as a boy he left his village to join his father in the city until the 2010s when he is a grandfather.
