      Benim açımdan tek kelimeyle “kusursuz” bir okuma deneyimi oldu Beyaz Kale. Orhan Pamuk’a olan hayranlığım bir kat daha arttı. O kadar derinlikli tarihsel detayların içinde zaman atlamaları yaparak kurgu yaratma cesareti, kabiliyeti, başarısı, sonunda yaşanan dönüşüm, hatta öyle bir roman ki bana kalırsa sonunun da çok önemli olmaması, sona gelene kadar içsel tüm gerginliği, çözümlemeyi yol boyunca yaptırmış olması, ve ve ve benim için en haz verici olan kı [...]

      A Short StartI started reading this novel, because it was Pamuk's shortest and although I liked the subject matter of his other novels, I was worried I might bite off more than I could chew (I am the sort of person who must finish a book once I've started it, even if I hate it). So this was a taster for me.From A to B Inevitably I think it is fair to say that what happens at the end is inevitable. His craftsmanship lies in how he achieves it. There is a moment towards the end of the book when th [...]

      Warning: you have to relax to read this book, just let go and let it take you where it wants. This is a novel on identity: the plot really does not matter (is this the defining feature of good literature?), the crucial point is how two individuals actually become one, to the point that we no longer know ourselves who is whom. Is the Italian slave really taking the place of his "hoja" (i.e. master, according to Adam Shatz in the London Review of Books), are they really swapping lives as previousl [...]

      7 / 10Kitabın sonunda O.Pamuk'un kaleme aldığı sonsöz, hem samimi hem de doyurucuydu.Sonsözü okumasaydım bazı şeyler bende havada kalmış olacaktı. Pamuk okurken hep fazladan beklenti içindeyim (belki aldığı ödül nedeniyle ) Beklentimi karşılamadı ancak keyif aldım diyebilirim.

      Yaklaşık 20 yıl sonra yeniden okuduğum Beyaz Kale'yi bu defa daha çok sevdim. İlk okuduğum zamanlarda (sanırım daha yirmi değildim); okunması gereken her şeyi sırayla okuyup, yanına bir tik atan, aç bir genç okurdum sadece. Şimdi daha sindire sindire, keyifli okumalar yapıyorum. eskiden okuyup rafa kaldırdığım, hakkı az verilmiş romanlar olduğunu yeni yeni idrak ediyorum. Beyaz Kale kesinlikle bu romanlardan biri.Çocuk yaşta tahta oturtulan hayvanlara meraklı Padişah [...]

      "The White Castle is a colorful and intricately patterned triumph of the imagination." - said the annotation. But I don't see The White Castle as a triumph. It's good but nothing more. Pamuk tells us a story about a slave who inspite all diffuculties and troubles took his place in the turkish society of masters and a master who seemed to be insane and genious at the same time. They are similar like brothers and their mind had become similar, too. Knowledge of the Slave became a part of Hoja. Hoj [...]

      It is almost impossible to talk about this book without revealing its ending (or at least what one might consider to be its ending). This strange work purports to be a 17th century manuscript found by one Faruk Darvinoglu in 1982. We find that in the manuscript we are about to read, ' some events described in the story bore little resemblance to fact', although the 'truth' of the general knowledge of the period seemed to be accurate (p.2). On page 3 Faruk reveals that a professor he had consulte [...]

      Pamuk’s talent for storytelling is definitely unquestionable. Well, OK, you can disagree, I don’t care. I loved the setting; it was basically the main criteria for choosing the book (I’d probably need to mention the reader-friendly length, as well). I loved the plot (the double / the identical twin, the capacity of exchanging not only identities, but also memories, ideas and beliefs), the framing device, the (unreliable) 1st person narrative, the mind games and the twisted relationship / b [...]

      I was surprised at how easy and fast this was to read. Until I got to the end, I mean. Then I felt that I should start over and read it again, because I was sure I missed something. You tricked me, Mr.Pamuk! And I liked it!The best part about this book was the exploration of identity. What does it mean, when I say who I am? What makes me me and not someone else? Not something I want to think about all the time, but excellent thoughts to spin around in the early hours of the morning.Slightly besi [...]

      Video review: youtube/watch?v=Po4dQFeatured in my Top 20 Books I Read in 2017It'll make you feel wonderfully sinister. A dreamy, absorbing novel that's very dense but immensely captivating - on par with the weirdest fiction of Calvino, Borges or Hoffmann.

      Are we really so different from one another? Why am I not the magnificent white castle that sits on top of the hill but a rusty, creaking and nonsensical monstrosity wrought in hopes of "proving things to them", stuck in mud and sinking to its death with poor, accidental participants in it? Why can't I be you? If I knew who you were, where you come from and what you thought of while eating lunch with your family on an idle summer day of your youth? Are there really things to be found inside ones [...]

      Doğu-batı ikilemi ve kişinin kendisinden başkası olma özlemi Pamuk’un her okuduğum kitabında görülüyor, bu konuyu çok güzel işlediğini düşünüyorum. Orhan Pamuk favorilerim arasına giremez belki Beyaz Kale fakat ne yazsa keyifle aşkla okuyorum.

      I wanted to love this book, and it seems uncomfortably unintellectual for me to say that I have mixed feelings about it. Much of the time I felt like I was reading through a haze which had the added effect of slowing all action down. The end of the novel I first found vexing in the extreme--I spent the whole rest of the day after I finished it in a snit. But I've made my peace with it, and I understand (I think) why it may have done what it did. In the end, I'm glad I read it, but I didn't entir [...]

      The White Castle, or Beyaz Kale as it was first printed in Turkish is a book which looks long and hard at the idea of personal identity. The narrator asks "Of what importance is it who a man is? The important thing is what we have done and will do." This Kafka-esque statement eloquently sums up the essence of the two main characters, the Hoja (teacher) and his Italian slave. Throughout their time together slave and master are caught in a tussle over their identities. Both recognise the similarit [...]

      Orhan Pamuk has won the Nobel Prize for literature and is supposed to be the premier man of letters in contemporary Turkey. However, I noted that more than one person on my friends' list on was less than enthused with his books. Thus, instead of reading his more famous My Name is Red or Snow, I deliberately chose the slimmest volume on the shelf for my introduction--The White Castle--a mere 161 pages--yet this couldn't hold me even that far.Set in seventeenth century Turkey, it's the first pers [...]
