The profound and moving novel from the winner of the 2006 Nobel Prize for Literature is finally available on audio. Dread, yearning, identity, intrigue, the lethal chemistry between secular doubt and Islamic fanaticism-these are the elements that Orhan Pamuk anneals in this masterful, disquieting novel. An exiled poet named Ka returns to Turkey and travels to the forlorn city of Kars. His ostensible purpose is to report on a wave of suicides among religious girls forbidden to wear their head-scarves. But Ka is also drawn by his memories of the radiant Ipek, now recently divorced. Amid blanketing snowfall and universal suspicion, Ka finds himself pursued by figures ranging from Ipek's ex-husband to a charismatic terrorist. A lost gift returns with ecstatic suddenness. A theatrical evening climaxes in a massacre. And finding god may be the prelude to losing everything else.

Having read about this book in NYT and Wall Street Journal, I really wanted to like this book, but it's just so intense that it was very hard to get into this books. Maybe it was because I read an English translation, and maybe the original is really good. I rarely ever leave a book in the middle, but I couldn't finish it. Gave it two stars because the "love story" in it was very capturing
