    "The Museum of Innocence"
    What made the experience of listening to The Museum of Innocence the most enjoyable?

    The ability of the writer to combine beautiful descriptive writing with character development and plot structure. The book has soul.
    John Lees, narrator, does a super job.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Kemal, of course. He is the ringmaster of his life and a great, rich character. He
    is never easy to decipher and it will be along time before I feel I have truly discoveredI him; But then
    that's the reason Pamuk is such a great writer: he lets the reader be involved.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Early on, the chapter of the sacrificial goat. The final chapters of the love story - but that would be
    spoiling it for you !


    Who was the most memorable character of The Museum of Innocence and why?

    Fuzun of course. An enigma, a mystery. A classic, romantic woman with a strong
    mind.


    Any additional comments?

    Pamuk is reputedly not to everyone's taste. But why not, is beyond me. He is a
    wonderful story teller. I suppose you have to work a little harder or be a little patient as he takes his
    time developing the characters, plot. I love the sub-plot with Istanbul as the
    protagonist.

    "Sad and brilliant"

    Proust hovers in spirit over this masterful story of obsessive love.

    John Lee's reading captures beautifully the tone of the book.
