Aylin is an affluent Turkish woman, brilliant and beautiful, but incapable of finding the happiness she craves in her life. The novel begins with her freak death - murder or accident? I found it difficult to really get into the story and never particularly cared about Aylin hers I received a copy of Aylin by Ayse Kulin from its publishers, Amazon Crossing, via NetGalley, in exchange for my honest review.
I found it difficult to really get into the story and never particularly cared about Aylin herself because of the way her tale was told.
A leading psychologist, she failed to recognise basic destructive behaviour patterns in herself so the novel is essentially her jumping from one marriage to the next, but with no sense of love or emotion.
Supporting characters like her sister and niece came across much more convincingly to me, but I thought the male characters were frequently flat. I am not sure if the distance I felt from the characters was due to Kulin's storytelling style or whether the translation from Turkish was at fault.
Certainly much of the book is set in America which disappointed me as I was hoping to read about Turkey. I was baffled by viewpoint switches such as suddenly finding myself reading the innermost thoughts of a mute nun, and spent most of the book feeling that I had missed the point.

Blog Twitter Instagram As a note, an e-galley of this novel was sent to me via NetGalley by the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not effect my opinions in any way. People have to find happiness through their own trials and errors. If you cannot devout your time to such a story, if you have a bit of difficulty following along, this novel will not connect with you.
But if you are up to it, this novel will be just what you are looking for—I knew within the first few chapters that the story was special. Be prepared to get lost in its words, be prepared to take your time and embrace the story as it unfolds and most importantly you must be sure to let it get into its groove.
First of all, this book is presented as fiction but is really the life story of the remarkable Aylin De Vrimel Radomisli-Cates, tho she's never referred to as such, written by a cousin who clearly hero-worshipped her.
The prologue, presenting Aylin's funeral after her mysterious death, is written in an embarrassingly maudlin way; fortunately, the rest of the book is a much better read. A large part of this is due to Aylin herself. Transforming from an overly romantic young girl who marries a p First of all, this book is presented as fiction but is really the life story of the remarkable Aylin De Vrimel Radomisli-Cates, tho she's never referred to as such, written by a cousin who clearly hero-worshipped her.
Transforming from an overly romantic young girl who marries a prince to a hippie medical student, and then to a sophisticated psychiatrist with a complicated personal life who finds answers by enlisting in the United States Army, Aylin's story is one of courage and determination. There's no doubting that she's a flawed individual, particularly when it comes to money and romance and how they relate which, honestly, I found very understandable given her background and upbringing, but she's also a pretty awesome person, and you can understand Ayse Kulin's determination to ensure that her story is told.
Ms Kulin does let sentimentality get away with her, particularly in the beginning and end bits, but there's also a lot of humor to the story, and you get the genuine feeling that something wasn't right in the way Aylin died. It's a fast, entertaining, somewhat gossipy read with names changed to protect from a libel suit, of course.
Nov 16, Sneha rated it really liked it. When I landed on a review blog with Aylin's review on top of the page, I couldn't stop myself from adding the book into my next read list though the review didn't suggest a great out of the book.
Even with the translater's great effort to reflect the beauty of Turkish language into English, I couldn't fight the urge the wish to absorb the real charm of Turkish language. Initial introduction of old bloodline of Aylin was the part I simply wanted to skip as I didn't feel it really provide readers an When I landed on a review blog with Aylin's review on top of the page, I couldn't stop myself from adding the book into my next read list though the review didn't suggest a great out of the book.
Initial introduction of old bloodline of Aylin was the part I simply wanted to skip as I didn't feel it really provide readers any peek into Turkish culture as I expected, neither does much of Aylin's life. But that wasn't the sole reason that I started the book at first place.
Aylin, as I figured, was so much full of love that it was impossible for her to contain all of it within. She always tried to find a way to let it flow and reach people in need, in which she almost always succeeded if romantic love is kept out of limit.
Being the youngest daughter, she got her share of motherly love even from her sister; as expected she set out on a different path than one was defined for her by rules of society. Every time she was refused of love from her companion, she poured her heart out for patients, not so healthy househelp, her niece, her step children and even colleagues, though it was never sufficient for her as heart never really understands compromises. Though the book gives a glipmse of all that the woman had suffered, Ayse has cleverly left details to be imagined by readers.
Writing style was bit different from what I have read so far, but again I know that it would have been a complete different experience if the book was read in its original language. Aylin book was published almost 2 decades from now and Aylin spent most of her time away from her roots, I wonder if that's the reason she was so free spirited and independent along with her hotheaded bloodline. May be it was not love that destroyed her bit by bit but it was independence that she savoured which consumed her completely.
This is the story of a woman, the novel starts out with the murder of Aylin, and then the story goes into the details of her life. She is a very accomplished woman, she makes up her mind to do something and she does it.
Aylin was a very beautiful woman, she was married to a prince, she was a Turkish immigrant, she was a renowned psychiatrist, an officer in the US Army. But with all these accomplishments, she could not have a child of her own, she seemed to be searching for true happiness, which I don't think she found, she loved her family and tried very hard to make her step children love her, she had a very close relationship with her sisters daughter. She really seemed to care about people and some people really cared about her, but none seemed to be able to fill the void in her life, she never seemed to be truly happy.
I thought the writing was good, it did keep me interested, I was unhappy with the ending, which I felt gave me no closure to the story. Suicide might have been implied, or even murder, but however manner Aylin died, it was not clear. As colorful as her life had been, with the vibrant reds, yellows and greens equally competing with the blacks, grays and blues, I felt that the author did not do justice to the story by snuffing her life just like that.
I hate stories with so much build up, only to be cut abruptly, and without warning, you're already looking at the last page! Was the author being true to Aylin's character through to Suicide might have been implied, or even murder, but however manner Aylin died, it was not clear. Was the author being true to Aylin's character through to the end: still so full of surprises, even in death?
Is this one of those kinds where the author leaves it up to the reader to speculate? Or am I just too jet lagged that I missed a very important part? Aylin is a novel written and related in a fashion akin to a biography, that I found myself going back on the front matter to check if I was really reading fiction. It was a good story, really, but I just couldn't get over the way it ended, so two and a half stars. I loved and enjoyed reading the wonderfully, written book, Aylin, that I received free from Goodreads First Read.
The story begins with the mysterious and unsolved death of Aylin. The writer then takes the reader on an adventure of Aylin's life which includes her sister, Nilufer, and Nilufer's daughter, Tayibe; Aylin's husbands and lovers; Aylin's psychiatrist patients; Aylin's friends and people's lives she touched with her uniqueness and beauty.
Read the highly recommended book, Aylin, by the ta I loved and enjoyed reading the wonderfully, written book, Aylin, that I received free from Goodreads First Read. Read the highly recommended book, Aylin, by the talented author, Ayse Kulin. Couldn't put it down I want to burn through Kulin's books but force myself to slow down. I want to savor every description, every character nuance and every plot turn.
She has made me want to visit Turkey, Istanbul, Ankara. I can't recommend her books enough. Thoroughly engrossing. Jun 27, Onur rated it it was amazing. I loved the story, it is really impressive. Easy to read and feel like you witness everything goes on. Sep 03, Tolga Tomac rated it liked it. Matters are more important than the personal life for me.
A beautiful, well-written story. I enjoyed it very much.
