"Forty Rules of love" my review
I was surprised to have such an polished level of writing from a female writer. Much love to Shafak who made this book a historical as well as a literary piece. I don't know how the theology works but way of shams were demonstrating those practically. I guess there a little amount of fiction in the story which has made the novel more attractive and inevitable. I don't know what should be the standard of a literary piece, but if someone asks me I would definitely tell him to have look on this masterpiece.
