The second challenge of Nerd in the Brain’s summer reading challenge is to read a book with a one word title. For this challenge, I chose “Snow” by Orhan Pamuk. It’s the winner of a Nobel Peace Prize in Literature.
So that should tell you that it’s excellent.
It took me longer than usual to finish this book. It’s much different than what I typically read. I was determined to complete this book no matter what – even if I wasn’t totally interested in the political or religious topics. I think I will have to look up the history of Turkey in order to understand some of the issues. You can still enjoy this book without knowing. I’m just a nerd in that way.
The book dealt with politics, religion, love. If it wasn’t for the love stories, I might have given up. Thank goodness for love.
