My Name is Red --- Orhan Pamuk

My Name is Red --- Orhan Pamuk


One Best Seller that confuses you for the first three chapters. Don Worry...!!! You get to understand it very soon. Black is an artist who returns to his home town after many years. His old love Shekure, has already married and has two sons from the marriage. However, her husband who once left for the mountains has not returned and his brother is now insisting that Shekure marry him. Shekure's Father is commissioned to draw a book that celebrates the Reign of the Sultan. The sultan wanted it in the Western Style which was clearly forbidden in the scriptures. Shekure's father reluctantly agrees to do it. Only to find that one by one all his artists are being murdered. He too is also murdered. And the Clue to the murderer is hidden in the paintings. Whether Black's love for Shekure's remains unchanged, Whether the killer is avenged, whether Shekure's children accept Black as their father is the crux of the Story.

One Hell of a Read. I recommend this book to every art lover and historian. When you finish reading this you'll become a die hard fan of Orhan Pamuk.
