Three Daughters of Eve
Three Daughters of Eve | Elif Shafak
Peri, a wealthy Turkish housewife, is on her way to a dinner party at a seaside mansion in Istanbul when a beggar snatches her handbag. As she wrestles to get it back, a photograph falls to the ground - an old polaroid of three young women and their university professor. A relic from a past - and a love - Peri had tried desperately to forget. The photograph takes Peri back to Oxford University, as an eighteen year old sent abroad for the first time. To her dazzling, rebellious Professor and his life-changing course on God. To her home with her two best friends, Shirin and Mona, and their arguments about Islam and femininity. And finally, to the scandal that tore them all apart.

Thanks @RachelO for choosing this book - definitely on the lookout for more by Shafak.

The man in the photo is Chris Mounsey, who I've written quite a bit about in the book, as Azur reminds me of him (but in good ways). There's also 4 loose postcards in the book as I didn't want to clog up the margins!

@jhod it will be sent sometime next week - I need to get more package envelopes! 🤣🤣🤣

This book is impressive and I was left wanting more. Solid literary fiction which alternates perspectives of one woman during three different times of her life. I think the three daughters is referring to her and her friends, but it could equally be referring to the 3 different Peri's or Peri, her mother and daughter. That's the joy of literary fiction though isn't it - the layers, the complexity, the confusion!

This book starts with Peri, a married Turkish woman, going to a party at a home on the Bosporus,and ends at that home. Most of the book tells the story of Peri and her family, and Peri‘s time at Oxford University. There she becomes friends with two women, one Iranian and one Egyptian. And then there is the charismatic, male professor who influences all of them, but Peri in particular. I enjoyed the drama of the women‘s friendship and the culture.

mcipher What a pretty spot!! 4mo
DivineDiana @mcipher Agree! There are many homes built close to the Bosporus which runs through Istanbul. In the book, a large ship actually manages to come on shore a bit and crash into the house!!! 4mo

For the #WomenReadWomen2019 Read Along Chat, I asked for a favourite quote from the book. Here is mine, sagely uttered by Professor Azur whose unorthodox ways proved to be too incendiary. I didn‘t like him at all despite his brilliance. I thought he exploited his students for his own purposes, and too convinced of his own smarts. What did you think of him? What‘s your fave quote from the book?

#WomenReadWomen2019 Read Along Chat is here with only four Qs. Do chime in if you have read the book, very eager to read your thoughts. This is a so-so for me. Found it borderline proselytizing, with the story taking a backseat to the heavy pontification. Tagging those who have expressed an interest previously.

Laughterhp I never got a chance to read this book. I still have it from the library so hopefully I‘ll get to it eventually! 5mo
DivineDiana I did not share the sense of proselytizing. Instead, I finished with a sense of oneness with humanity, no matter what you believe.🤔 #1 answered in a previous post. #2 I‘m choosing Peri, only because of her searching in regards to religion. I do think that I would not have made some of her life choices.#3 I enjoyed the cultural exploration of the 3 women. Although, I have not visited Turkey yet,I have 2 Turkish brother-in-laws. Have been to Iran. (edited) 4mo

I am still not sure what Elif Shafak was trying to do with the novel. It was a patchy story and the@time shifts were not handled well. The general premise was great but it did not come off.

This book was so good! It dealt with number of serious issues - religion, politics, feminism, identity - and while it did not delve deeply into them all, I did not find it lacking. Rather I identified with the Peri's story and her struggle as she wondered if she would always be "somewhere in between" faith and doubt.

quote
BekaReid
post image

"She had been reading for almost three hours and her brain was saturated with ideas. She imagined her mind as a rambling house with many rooms in which she stored all the things she read, heard and saw, and where they were inspected, processed and registered by a little clerk, a homunculus entirely at her unconscious service. Yet it was possible, she believed, that one‘s thoughts could be hidden even from oneself."

Shafak also has a lot going on here - secularism vs. Islamicism in modern Turkey, the roles of women, the fall out of 9/11, faith and religion, etc. I‘m not sure any of the topics really get their due.

I did enjoy “Three Daughters of Eve”, however, I just think there‘s something missing.

I loved the first Shafak book I read, The Architect‘s Apprentice, & had high hopes for this one. On the way to a party, Peri is mugged & a photograph falls out of her wallet forcing her to confront a past she had tried to, but ultimately couldn‘t, forget. The plot was predictable &, as Shafak revealed the why, rushed & events dealt with only at a surface level. Ultimately, it wasn‘t totally believable. The writing was excellent, the story ok.

As I'm just a tiny bit in denial about the fact that it's #December, I'm going with #AllAboutEve for this one from my TBR. Very mixed reviews, and I have to admit, although I've read at least 1 of her other books, I barely remember them/it 🤦🏻‍♀️. BUT I love hearing Elif Shafak speak on things - I heard her at the London Book Fair a few years back - so I'm very happy to give her another go. #winterwonderland

#backpackEurope travelogue *fictional*
Country 17: Turkey is awesome. I spent time in Istanbul--I shopped til I dropped at the Grand Bazaar (LANDMARK) and gaped at the stunning former church-now-mosque of Hagia Sophia. Way bigger IRL.
This book was lovely. I loved Peri's character, seeing how her choices influenced her growth. It tackles big subjects like religion, feminism, terrorism, and more. Reminded me of Eugenides' The Marriage Plot. 4🌟

Pros: elegant writing, a protagonist wrestling with deep ideas, well-developed characters. Cons: the book tried to do a bit too much, with the storyline, flashbacks, and profound conversations about God. YMMV, this isn‘t for everyone, but I highly enjoyed it and recommend it!

Dinner!

Our book club is reading this one and I almost finished it on the flight back. It is spectacular. Elif Shafak is an author I will read again. The story follows Peri, over the course of one dinner party in 2016 (present) and reflections on her past while she attended Oxford and also while growing up in Instanbul. Themes about women and their worth (their “place”) and religion and God are abundant and spot on and I‘m brimming with thoughts.

I definitely enjoyed reading this book by Elif Shafak. It showcases Peri‘s life from childhood to being a mother. She was raised by parents with different views on their religion until she meets two women in Uni Mona the religious, and Shirin the rebellious one. It‘s a story about Peri‘s journey to identity herself and faith. Definitely recommending it.

I absolutely loved this book! It's about the different ways we approach religion and our relationship with God: Atheist vs Believers, East vs West. And the relationships that shape us and influence us the most in our lives. I identified so much with the main character Peri, the "confused". Always uncertain and oscillating between the extremes, unwilling to choose sides. A book that will stay with me a long time.
