I just can´t get through a Pamuk book... the writing-style doesn´t match my reading-style I guess.

maybe it is a little hard to understand his style, but after 1-2 books all becomes easy - my point of view

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

I couldn´t really get through watching Benjamin Button either. This doesn´t mean the movie was highly intellectual or something. I just found it a good story, but a bit of a drag at points. I feel the same about Pamuk books. I just get the feeling I want to fast forward through a few bits. The problem is that I can´t do that in books

-THE METAMORPHOSİS - DEĞİŞİM

By Franz KAFKA

The story begins with a traveling salesman,  waking to find himself transformed into a monstrous insect.Kafka is the one of the best writers of the 20th century.

 

-THE STRANGER  (THE OUTSIDER),   L’  ETRANGER - YABANCI

By Albert CAMUS

The title character is Meursault, an Algerian who seemingly irrationally kills an Arab man whom he recognises in French Algiers. Meursault shoots an Arab for no reason.Camus theme and outlook are often cited as examples of existentialism,  though Camus did not consider himself an existentialist like J.P.Sartre.

 

Good novels
