Snow by Orhan Pamuk


This is the story of a Turkish poet Ka who after living in exile in Frankfurt returns to to the town of Kars in order to investigate the suicide of religious girls forbidden to wear their head scarves.

In the meantime a military coup takes place at the National Theatre when soldiers just shoot several people among the audience including some persons known by Ka.

Some religious aspects come naturally into the plot.

In my opinion this book is a masterpiece of the contemporary literature even if some reviewers will disagree with my point of view.
