Without a Country Reviews

  • Rhonda Johnson

    Good for learning an overview of political history of Turkey, but other than that, not a fan.

  • Gina

    Interesting for the history

    Covering several generations from 1930’s to present day, this narrative explores the impact of politics and dogma and intolerance on a family of intellectuals. The point of view is sometimes detached and superficial, other times becomes overly detailed in minutiae. It skips decades and picks up a new voice in a new generation. However, in sum total, it provides an interesting study of different kinds of loyalty, love and devotion in one family.

    Because I enjoyed this book immensely. The book has everything in it. Love family politics. The characters were bright but human and imperfect. What a wonderful author Ayse is. I really felt for her characters

    A personal look at Turkey's history

    A family's generational look at Turkey with characters you can care about and believe existed and made a difference - excellent

    Good read

    Enjoyed the international history and an eye opener on the sufferings! Found the plot believable. Would read her novels again!

    The novel was a history lesson and a very good story. There are many Jewish WW11 stories and this one was a different perspective . German Jews \Turkish Muslim families searching for identity.

  • Christine


    The book started off great. A great story line, very different from other WW2 Jewish tales. However, I needed a bit more closure at the end; I hate reading a book and going to click the next page and finding the authors biography! If you like WW2 historical fiction this is definitely a quick read with a great storyline.
