I understand it, it´s just not my taste. I like to read a book for my pleasure. If going through it seems like a battle, I don´t want to read it anymore "My name is Red" was on the list of my book club, but didn´t even finish it yet. I put it somewhere in a corner and just waited for the next book to come along

 

In my opinion "My Name Is Red" is his best book. It is easy to read and very enjoying. If you didn´t like this never open the cover of "Black Book". I finished it and lost my sanity

I read his "Istanbul" book first and enjoyed it.  I didn´t read another until recently, when I read "The Black Book".  I enjoyed this one too, although it was peculiar in some ways and my simple mind was disappointed with the ending lol. 

I tried to read "Museum of Innocence" but had to give it up because I wasn´t enjoying the subject matter, although I can appreciate Pamuk´s skill in developing his characters.

His work that I´ve enjoyed the most is "Snow".  I waited for over a month for "My Name is Red" to become available from the library but, after reading about 100 pages, I´ve had to give up on it.  I will return to it later though.  It´s a busy time of year at work and, as I was reading, I found myself wondering what I had just read on the page because my mind drifted to work matters.  I´ll give it another try when I´m on holiday.  So, the fault there is mine, not Pamuk´s.

 Reminds me of The Golden Notebook by Doris Lessing - I can say that is the most tedious boring book I have ever "tried" to read in my life!!  It would not be on my recommended list!!  Doubt if I will ever return to it {#emotions_dlg.satisfied_nod}

hmmm....I liked My Name is Red, but much preferred his New Life. Black Book was fine, but New Life is my favorite of his books. I´ve read most all his works up to Istanbul, which was interesting as a sort of historic/biographic novel, but had no where near the impact of his other more surreal works.

 I agree you about "My Name is Red". But few months ago I read and enjoyed very much "The Museum of Innocence"..indeed it is not like the others books  of Pamuk but I liked it much more than ´Snow´ or "Black Book"; anyway, even Pamuk is not vey well known in my country he is a great writer{#emotions_dlg.flowers}
