No I am not going to teach you how to make Christmas Dinner, but I am going to tell you about a fantastic new book that will be a perfect stocking filler this Christmas.
The book is called just as the title to this review, Turkey with Stuff in: A Scrumptious Tale of Adventure and Just Deserts and is written by the lovely Kym Ciftci who writes the wonderful blog, Turkey with Stuffin.
If you have ever read Kym’s blog you will be familiar with her wonderful style of writing that opens up the imagination and brings life in Turkey alive with humor and great sensitivity.
I have read many books about Turkey written by bloggers and there are very few I have enjoyed. Its hard as a blogger to change writing styles to accomplish a great book. When Kym asked me to read and review her book I was a little nervous what if I didn’t like the book what would I say!!
Well yes you will have already guessed I didn’t hate the book in fact I loved it and with out a word of a lie I couldn’t put the book down.
Kym’s wonderful writing brought out all the emotions and pulled me into her world here in Turkey when she first started out on her new life here in Turkey. A world so similar yet so different to mine, I was completely lost in her story.
I was so absorbed by the book I often forgot I was reading about real life events and read the book like a piece of fiction. But if you really want to know what life is like in a Turkish village and what it is like living with a Kurdish family then you won’t be disappointed. At times I felt she was writing about my family here in Turkey the comparisons were so similar.
If you are thinking to move to Turkey or already live here, this is a book you will want to read.
When I finished reading the book I found myself wanting to know more and I hope that Kym will venture into writing a series of books on life here in Turkey and I can assure you I will be first in line to buy my copy.
I certainly can’t do her book justice with my little review so all I can tell you is to buy this book for yourself and friends and then come back and tell me what you thought!
