A Book Finished

Phew - I have at last finished reading that epic, My Name is Red. The last 30 pages took me over a week. I normally read twice that in a night. I'm still not entirely sure what it was all about and I need some time to digest before I decide if I liked it. Roughly, it was a murder mystery set in 1590 Turkey as art was moving away from the tradition of the miniaturists (everyone painted according to a style/standard as dictated by those in conversation with Allah, Master Miniaturists) to the European style of painting what you see, open to individual interpretation and style.
