The author tells the story as if it were the beginning. In other words, landa I language ini in the foreground. In addition, there is a narrative in the eyes of an invisible person.
The point I find successful in the narrative of the author is that the narration is fluent and immersive. The reader can easily read the book without being bored. However, we can criticize the opposite of Turkish custom, custom, morality. I also think that such books should not be read by young people who are new to puberty and who try to find their personality. Therefore, it is not suitable for our target audience.
But in general terms, I think it’s not a book to read. Because the writer has a very good sense of curiosity to the novel. This situation is of interest to the reader. There are political elements in the novel. However, every social, political event should be evaluated within the conditions of the period in which it lived. I can also say, however, that there is no such justification.
