The book is a real page turner. I could not put the book down without feeling guilty. I would love to write lots of fantastic things about this book, but my eyes are still stinging from all the crying (as I've just finished reading the last page). Thank you Orhan Pamuk for sharing this book with us.

The first time I saw the book was at the library of my school (I was 15 at that time) and I always had the need to be reading a book so I saw this book with an interesting picture of a few people in a car with a beautiful background of a city and with the title "The Museum of Innocence"...
