Orhan Pamuk’s Snow

(I’m a bit late on posting this)

These are a few things the book made me think about –

1. Technology and East-West interactions have only deepened the “East-West Divide”. Both reflects the other negatively.
2. It is really difficult for a guy to understand a girl even if she spells out everything for him. They probably synergise at the level of the heart. O, and it’s probably time for looking for a girl for me too.
3. Being an atheist in the East is probably difficult. Everyone finds their God, even atheists. Western definitions don’t apply.

Besides that, I thought the book was really well written and was well expressed. Reading about Orhan Pamuk on Wikipedia and later on his website, probably made it more meaningful.
