Milan Kundera- okay where do I start with this one? First thought that comes to my mind is "Wow, where have I been?" "The unbearable lightness of being" is juat too incredibly great for me to express all the emotions it made me feel. I am more like left speachless. When amazing #ElifShafak mentioned him in #ThebastardofIstanbul I knew I had to read him, I was ready to like this book, but I didn't expect to be absolutely blown away by it. I am usually good with not showing too much feelings, but this book made me go through total roller coaster of different emotions. Not being able to name exactly what I feel about this book, all I have to say is that I love it, I think it is the kind of book which people either way love too much or dislike too much and I am happy to become part of the people who admire it. The most I love this honest feeling of happiness I get whenever I am in love with the book, I love my fast heartbeat while reading and this book gave me too many moments like that. It is a book that can shake one's whole world and thoughts. I love its meaning, its phylosophy, its political side, the unanswered questions it left me with and I am so proud that no matter what and no matter the situation I prefer the burden, the heaviness over the unbearable lightness of being. #MilanKundera #TheUnbearableLightnessOfBeing #Literature #Masterpiece

#fbm2019 mein 2. Tag... Erst war ich auf einer Autorenkonferenz und abends bei der Literaturgala. Es waren wunderbare Autoren eingeladen und es wurde über Politik, die Welt und über Literatur gesprochen. Aus den Werken der Autoren wurde natürlich auch gelesen 📕📗 #literaturgala #buchmessefrankfurt #bookfair #bärbelschäfer #thomasböhm #elifshafak #ninapetri #colsonwhitehead #belabfelsenheimer #majalunde #kenfollett #margaretatwood #authors #bestseller #pulitzerprize

#قانون_چهارم صفات خدا را می‌توانی در هر ذره کائنات بیابی. چون او نه در مسجد و کلیسا و دیر و صومعه، بلکه هر آن همه جا هست. همانطور که کسی نیست که او را دیده و زنده مانده باشد، کسی هم نیست که او را دیده و مرده باشد. هر که او را بیابد تا ابد نزدش می ماند. #ملت_عشق #اليف_شافاك #مولانا #molana #elifshafak #fourtyrulesoflove

‘In the first minute following her death, Tequila Leila’s consciousness began to ebb, slowly and steadily, like a tide receding from the shore. Her brain cells, having run out of blood, were now completely deprived of oxygen. But they did not shut down. Not right away...’ 💙 The pleasure and sadness of sharing Leila’s last moments and finding out about her unlucky life, but also getting to know her five wonderful, unique friends that make it so much less so. This book is exquisite and now one of my life’s companions. 💙 . . #bookrecommendations #10m#10minutes38secondsisstrangeworld #10minutes38seconds #elifşafak #elifshafak #bookerprizeshortlist #bookerprize2019 #booksaremylife #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookstagramfeature #boo#booksofinsta #bookworm #rea#readersofinstagram #igreads #ins#instabooks #igbooks #bookphoto #readersofinstagram #readstagram #instaread #instabooks #booksofinsta
