2027´de Türkiye´de terör

A new book describing Turky in the year 2027 has been released in UK. According to newsweek, the book, titled "The Dervish House", written by Ian McDonald is doing some brainstorming about the Turky of 17 years later.

The book starts with a bombing on Monday and ends on Friday when the secret is solved, spanning in 463 pages.

An insteresting note about the book is that the Kurdish problem in Turky still hasn´t been sorted out in 2027.

This is fantastic.. Made my day..lol

This is just a science fiction novel. I mean, you know, just one of books written by a guy with some imagination. You dont look for TRUTH or you dont take it seriously..At least under normal circumstances it should be the case.. 

Because, in the end, you know that it is a science fiction novel.

But see how it is perceived by some of the people (Some translations from the comments) :

-"it is like WW1. UK was interfering with us at the time, they are doing the same today. Ottomani should have finished you"

-"People who prepared that map (map of sevr I guess) was British, person who this book is British too"..

-"It is not right to comment before reading the book but it looks like what is written there is the role the west has been proposing for Turkey. It seems to me that the book is written so they can get used to it"

-"Why is it not another country but Turkey?"

-"keep messing with my beautiful country you. It looks like you have many ships to sunk in Dardanells (refering to WW1 and the war at Dardanells)"

-"I dont believe it has different purpose than sawing the seeds of hatered between the brothers of this country"

Well.. lol lol

I mentioned about the level of paranoia and the level of fantasies in my country. did not I?

Thanks for your time (you seem to have plenty of it) for this amendment.

 

What if it is SciFi? It´s not far from the truth that probably we will have this Kurdish problem (and terror as result) then, provided we are still living together.

 

You need something to make your day.{#emotions_dlg.lol}

You can´t base your view of a country on the notes made under a book review, or any other article on internet. If you would base your opinion about Dutch people on the responses to news articles on internet, you would think my entire country is filled with idiots and racists.

 

Anyway, about the book. I know the writer, and because I know about his work I decided to check some stuff about the book. Let´s make clear that this is not a book about PKK. A terrorist act is the starting point of the book, but the book itself is more epic, a bit mystic. It´s not all about blood and terror. It´s comparable to previous books of this author, with intertwining stories of several interesting characters. It´s sci-fi, it´s not a news report.

You can´t base your view of a country on the notes made under a book review, or any other article on internet. It´s just a prediction. I used the word"probably". Let´s wait for another 17 years and see what happens.If you would base your opinion about Dutch people on the responses to news articles on internet, you would think my entire country is filled with idiots and racists.

I was refering to the previous posts about Turkish people being racist or whatever, based on the comments people made under the Turkish review of this book. The Handsome said somethig about I mentioned about the level of paranoia and the level of fantasies in Turkey. I said you can´t base THAT on the remarks of people on internet.

Well of course I would not make my judgement about Dutch people after reading the comments..

But I can make my judgement about my own people.  lol 

And I am right.. Even the poster thinks there might be some truth into it..

It is just a book..

And I am right.. Even the poster thinks there might be some truth into it..What´s wrong with mentioning a prediction about Turky´s future? Anyhing that can happen will happen.

It is just a book.. As if I didn´t know that.

... Let me explain again... the book was not written as a prediction of Turkey´s future. It´s a sci-fi book, with robots and stuff.

Who´s this explaination meant for? Stop treating others as dumb or something. Not nice, smart lady.

 

Let me check again if I understood correctly. it´s a scifi book, with robots and stuff. Is that what you´re saying?Wink
