لو اتخذنا من الترجمات العربية مصدرًا للحكم ، لوجدنا تطور ملحوظ في أسلوب شافاك الروائي، ورغم عشقي الشخصي لرائعتها (لقيطة استانبول) فإني أرى في هذه الرواية الأفضل فيما كتبت إلى الآن، وكالعادة فإن أشهر أعمالها هي الأسوأ من وجهة نظري.شافاك تنتمي إلى طائفة الروائيين خفيفي الظل ، [...]

Then he became the tamer of the elephant at the Sultan's Palace. The elephant then joins the chief Ottoman Architect Sinan, to tr [...]

Wow, how to best describe his book?!This book is special. It has: -stunning writing that stretches how you see the world around you. It gets you thinking in new ways, comparing Eastern versus Western modes of reasoning. -exciting events. I thought the book was going to end and then realized there were three hours left. There was much more to what had happened than I had realized! I came to understand I needed to know much more. -the feel, it captures the atmosphere, of Istanbul in the 1500s. A w [...]

5+Nemam riječi kojom bih opisala ovaj roman razmišljam o tome da ga opet krenem čitati:) toliko lijepih misli, odlična rekonstrukcija događaja, priča o životima tri sultana, mimaru Sinanu, njegovim pomoćnicima priča o životu jednog dječaka koji iz Indije dolazi u Carstvo i postaje jedan od najboljih neimara priča o velikoj ljubavi, velikom prijateljstvu i svim iskušenjima koja život donosi.

”Dacă oamenii ar trăi ca animalele, fără să se gândească la trecut sau la viitor și fără șiruri după șiruri de minciuni și înșelăciuni, lumea ar fi un loc mai pașnic, și, poate mai fericit.”Un roman frumos ca un basm. ”Fie ca lumea să curgă tocmai ca o apă”, spunea marele ucenic Sinan.Așa a curs și această minunată poveste în sufletul meu o apă.Dacă aș fi avut mai multe steluțele-aș fi acordat. Pentru magie, pentru povestea minunată pe care am trăit-o ti [...]

First, let's bask in the beauty of the cover:Quite a sight, isn't it?Anyway, this book reminded me a lot of The Golem and the Jinni (tGatJ). They are both historical fictions that take place in cosmopolitan cities told through the eyes of immigrants. In this case an Indian elephant trainer, Jahan, arriving in Ottoman Istanbul with a gift for Suleiman the Magnificent from a foreign Shah. We see the fascinating world of 16th and early 17th century Istanbul through his eyes as Jahan is taken under [...]

I cannot even begin to express how absolutely beautiful this book is. Everything, from the writing to the historical background, is so sublimely put to paper, it touches the reader so many times, that this has become one of those works for which I find myself incapable of conjuring enough words of praise. I have cried two times during the story, which says a lot about how delicately it tugs at your heartstrings making beauty out of every ugly feeling that it touches. I wish I could retain every [...]

This novel has poetry under its skin; without being direct about it, Shafak beguilingly invites you to experience life as a poemWhen you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy -RumiThis subtle narrative sensibility transforms events into gestures behind my eyes like a dance. Poetry is a retreat for me, a consolation, and so I found this book, reassuringly long, consoling, passing-sweet like the cherry blossoms that opened and fell around London while I was reading it.

لقد كانت رحلة ممتعة إلى الفن المعماري في الامبراطورية العثمانية حيث المعلم " سنان" يتلقى التصاميم من أيدي تلاميذه الذي اختارهم ليس لأنهم الأفضل بل لأنهم المهمشين و المنسيين الذين لديهم الموهبة والملكة ولكن لا يجدون المكان يُعلّمهم إن المعمار لابد وان يجتمع فيه ثلاث سمات " [...]

Godina se polako briži kraju, ubrzo ćemo razgovarati o knjigama koje smo pročitali u 2015. i koje su nam bile najbolje, koje su nas se najviše dojmile, a ja ću tada, zasigurno, spomnuti upravo ovu. Mimarov šegrt je knjiga koja me već od svog početka podsjetila na ono zašto u stvari tako volimo knjige, a to je mogućnost da, čitajući, uđemo u neki drugi svijet, neko drugo doba, neki drugi život. Naravno, čitali smo dosta knjiga čija se radnja odvija u Istanbulu, u doba poznatih sul [...]

I’ve challenged myself to read more books by International authors, I think it makes my world more expansive, it requires a certain sensibility. And not just Irish mysteries or Swedish stories about quirky geriatrics, though they are highly entertaining, but more literature with a capital L. So when The Architect’s Apprentice started popping up on must read lists, I stepped right up. I like my history with a side of fiction and given architecture is at this novel’s heart, I was sold.What I [...]

"May the world flow like water," Sinan used to say. I can only hope that this story, too, will flow like water in the hearts of its readers. -- Elif Shafak about "The Architect's Apprentice"That was the last phrase in the author's note, and for that & for many other reasons I gave it that rating!The novel is huge (452 pages), to keep reading such a lengthy work you need it to be flawless .is novel definitely lacks that style!
