Bir kadın tarafından iyi tartışılan “anti-feminizm”.
4.5 - neredeyse mükemmel. Bütün kabadayı teması beni rahatsız etti. Bu, okuyucunun kahramanı önemsemesini sağlamak için bir cop-out yoludur. Çatışmalar ve kararlar çok kolaydı. Dedi ki - Mitchell harika. Cloud Atlas'ı okumak için sabırsızlanıyorum.
Ne ilginç bir kitap. Yazar harika - komik ve bazen sarcasticlly öyle. Kitapta kuru bir parça değil
She is a pretty good author, with a great sense of humor. I enjoyed the humor, but it is a pretty bland mystery.
I'm pretty luke warm about this book. While some of it is insightful I'm finding it often ridiculous. The "harem" of voices that Elif battles with while she debates the issue of whether it is possible to be both a writer and a mother comes across as silly, which undermines the seriousness of her investigation. I can see using aspects of the self in order to stage internal debates, but I would argue that Shafak takes the trope too far. Her voices are given literal bodies and are presumed to physically exist in the context of this book. Shafak outlines a scene where her internal "finger-women", all just a few inches high, accost her while she's out walking and she worries that the fisherman will see them or a cat will eat them. I was highly distracted by these fanciful imaginings and it made the book read like a child's fairy tale rather than a serious look at postpartum depression. Her tiny selves pop up out of nowhere like Disney side-kicks and I kept imagining them as brightly rendered cartoon people. I would have liked to see a less whimsical approach to what was a life-altering series of decisions and experiences in Shafak's life--take out the finger-women and this might have been a really useful book.
I'd already discovered my first person voice in Flashpoint rough drafts, but reading Stackpole helped me polish.
