El castillo blanco / The White Castle
The preface was probably my favorite part yet it really served no purpose. However, other books do those themes much better and with more artistry and nuance.
This is the fourth book by Pam “The White Castle” by Orhan Pamuk is a first novel that shows cleverness and sparks of the Nobel Prize winning author’s future promise but suffers from an amateur style, a predictable plot, and dull pacing.
This is the fourth book by Pamuk I have read “Istanbul: Memories of a City,” “Snow,” “My Name Is Read” and feel that this was the weakest out of the four-interesting but unenjoyable, short but a chore to get through. If you like Pamuk’s other works, “The White Castle” is worth a look but otherwise, go for his later works.
Ambientato nel Seicento, racconta le vicende di un italiano che viene catturato dai Turchi odhan dato come schiavo a uno studioso a cui somiglia in modo inquietante. O forse sono io a non aver capito dove volesse andare a parare.
Nonostante siano solo blanvo Ambientato nel Seicento, racconta le vicende di un italiano che viene catturato dai Turchi e dato come schiavo a uno studioso a cui somiglia in modo inquietante. There are books you regret reading, and this is one of those. The first book i read by Pamouk but actually got deadly bored and pretty dissapointed.
This book is a winner of Nobel Prize in literature, I respect that. I just like the other book Red more. About The white Castle novel, I think it is a short book that caused me hour headache. Pmauk is slow-paced and self-centered. The Hoja lived his life trying to satisfy the sultan which he did so often. The Hoja’s Italian slave looks just like his master.
I don’t like the stereotype of Muslims i This book is a winner of Nobel Prize in literature, I respect that. I don’t like the stereotype of Muslims in this book.
Every book has something to offer, no matter how bad it is. As for this book, I like Astrology even though the book doesn’t really explain this science. Astrology means pajuk study of the stars and movement of planets how that affects humans. Now let me start by stating that this is a book I sought out as I am eager to read Pamuk’s other novel “Snow” but will only read an author’s books in the order they were written, and therefore needed to read this one, plus his next 3 before actually being able apmuk read the one I wanted blajco read in the first place Oh lord, it was awful!!
At no point whatsoever did it hold my attention, and to oorhan honest I couldn’t entirely tell you what it w Now let me start by stating that this is a book I sought out as I am eager to read Pamuk’s other novel “Snow” but will only read an author’s books in the order they were written, and therefore needed to read this one, plus his next 3 before actually being able to read the one I wanted to read in the first place At no point pxmuk did it hold my attention, and to be honest I couldn’t entirely tell you what it was all about.
Man becomes imprisoned in Istanbul, then becomes slave, the plague happens, he has his identity stolen by his master, he thinks he’s fooled everyone, then some bloke turns up and the book caastillo.
I think it’s safe blsnco say that this was totally pamu, on me. At least I can count it for the Bookcrossing. Every cloud and all that! Never have I fought so acstillo and so long to finish pages oryan to reach the end realizing that there is no “benefit” to me other than that I can now say “I have read it” I love stories set in historic places and given that I have family in Istanbul I thought: Constant over-analyzing of the two main characters’ emotions without anything really happening.
Suddenly you learn ten years have passed – how? It ends exactly as predicted and having now read a few reviews I cannot see the twist or turns they are speaking about. All I can say, thanks god it’s done! If you noticed the time I have been trying to complete this book you will realise eventually how casrillo I love it! I mean honestly I decided to give up and drop it!
I just couldn’t belong to the story and nothing interests me. There wasn’t a way I could reach the writer If i keep reading some pages I just lost interest after few! I don’t know what I feel about the writer but this book of his bores the hell out of me!
What a boring book, I didn’t finish it from page to page because of the dullness of the story etc.! On paper, the idea of White Castle sounds interesting enough, but in reality it was just boredom till the end of the book; I completed it rl galloping here and there. I found it extremely boring. Even if very short, I couldn’t finish it. I was not involved at all – I found it too descriptive with too little dialogues.
I couldn’t “feel” the oran. Either I am not in the right boanco of mind for this book or I am just not smart enough to get it. A short book, just pages but it still took me a month to complete it.
There are some books which you can’t just drag yourself to read, for me, this was one. Started it very enthusiastically, but ended it dreading that I had wasted my whole month.
El Castillo Blanco: Orhan Pamuk: : Books
After finishing the book my only concern was what the hell was this man trying to say? What really is the story and what was the mania throughout the book all about? The book starts well, ends well, but what it is in the middle is utter nonsense. It is basically that the author had a very little story with him and stretched it like an elastic for no reason.
The concept which the book claimed to explore of exchanging identities, is hardly explored rather some other mania is going on. For me this was a total disappointment. I don’t think I would ever have the courage to read another book from this Author. January’s book club book.
The author was the winner of a Nobel prize for literature. But this book was the longest pages that I’ve ever read. If I need an English teacher to explain it to me, I should skip it because I’m past that point of my life.
Glad that we tried branching out even if it wasn’t successful. This is not the first winner of the Nobel Prize whose literature failed to win my favor.
This book defeated me. It’s only pages, but I struggled to get halfway through. I’m too bored to continue. While the storyframe is different and the author debates some interesting philosophical questions, the writing itself just didn’t keep me engaged at all. Orhan Pamuk was born in Istanbul in and grew up in a large family similar to those which he describes in his novels Cevdet Bey and His Sons and The Black Book, in the wealthy westernised district of Nisantasi.
As he writes in his autobiographical book Istanbul, from his childhood until the age of 22 he devoted himself largely to painting and dreamed of becoming an artist. After graduating fro Orhan Pamuk was born in Istanbul in and grew up in a large family similar to those which he describes in his novels Cevdet Bey and His Sons and The Black Book, in the wealthy westernised district of Nisantasi.
After graduating from the secular American Robert College in Istanbul, he studied architecture at Istanbul Technical University for three years, but abandoned the course when he gave up his ambition to become an architect and artist. He went on to graduate in journalism from Istanbul University, but never worked as a journalist. At the age of 23 Pamuk decided to become a novelist, and giving up everything else retreated into his flat and began to write.
His first novel Cevdet Bey and His Sons was published seven years later in The novel is the story of three generations of a wealthy Istanbul family living in Nisantasi, Pamuk’s own home district. The novel was awarded both the Orhan Kemal and Milliyet literary prizes. The White Castle about the frictions and friendship between a Venetian slave and an Ottoman scholar was published in English and many other languages from onwards, bringing Pamuk his first international fame.
The same year Pamuk went to America, where he was a visiting scholar at Columbia University in New York from to It was there that he wrote most of his novel The Black Bookin which the streets, past, chemistry and texture of Istanbul are described through the story of a lawyer seeking his missing wife. The Black Book enlarged Pamuk’s fame both in Turkey and internationally as an author at once popular and experimental, and able to write about past and present with the same intensity.
