If you haven’t fallen so deeply in love before, I would think these long drawn obsession and demonstration of love may bore you. ) to dwell in such pain for awhile when I was younger but reading about Kemal makes me feel better to know that my condition then wasn’t as chronic as Kemal’s!On a serious note, the novel depicts a panoramic view of life in Istanbul as it chronicles this long, obsessive love affair; and Pamuk beautifully captures the identity crisis experienced by Istanbul’s upper classes that find themselves caught between traditional and westernised ways of being.I find myself lost in the time tunnel of 70’s Istanbul.I found out that Pamuk built The Museum of Innocence in the house in which his hero’s fictional family lived, to display Kemal’s strange collection of objects associated with Fusun and their relationship.In Europe, the rich are refined enough to act as if they’re not wealth. If you ask me, being cultured and civilised is not about everyone being free and equal; it’s about everyone being refined enough to act as if they were. To explain why we have chosen this moment over all others, it is also natural, and necessary, to retell our stories from the beginning, just as in a novel.

Despite all these painful memories, longing and loss, Kemal wants Pamuk (who writes this story on his behalf) to let everyone know that, he lives a happy life……..I soon got so hooked on it that I finished half of the book in one weekend and by the next weekend I finished all of it.I haven’t read any reviews related to it and I haven’t had a clue what the book was about, that was why I find many elements in this book a pleasant surprise.The house opened to the public in 2012 in the Beyoglu district of Istanbul. I have my many analysis of the characters, both frustrations and admiration.I concluded that Kemal was made of a weak stock, unable to make a firm decision and then put himself in a situation where he would suffer relentlessly for not being able to hold the woman he loves with his entire being.
