An embarrassment of riches from a trip to the used bookstore. Very excited to read several in here that I had been looking for for a while! #europacollective

BarbaraBB That is an incredible bookhaul! 😍 3w
Gleefulreader @BarbaraBB @jlhammar I couldn‘t resist. They are normally $25-29 pre-tax here in Canada. These ranged at the used store for $5-10 at the most! 3w

I really wanted to like this one, and as a piece of historical fiction, based on the meeting of Rumi and Shams of Tabriz, it‘s interesting - I had no knowledge of either men or of Sufism. But the parallel story set in modern era America is a bit mundane. If feels maybe it was added to make the novel palatable for Western tastes?

This is beautiful historical fiction told around the life of a famous Turkish architect in Istanbul. The writing is beautiful. The apprentice in the title happens to also be a mahmout in charge of a white elephant. Obviously. Unfortunately I think it needed to be shorter. Just imo.

Super, non mi ricordavo di averlo letto e nob mi ricordo bene la storia. La sensazione lasciata dal ricordo però è super positiva. Mi ricordo una lettura veramente geniale e imprevedibile. Molto bello
