A powerful book; thoughtful, provoking and compassionate (Joanne Harris, author of Chocolat)
Fascinating and gripping - a wonderful novel (Rosamund Lupton, author of Sister)
Rich and wide as the Euphrates river along whose banks it begins and ends, Elif Shafak has woven with masterful care and compassion one immigrant family's heartbreaking story - a story nurtured in the terrible silences between men and women trying to grow within ancient ways, all the while growing past them. I loved this book (Sarah Blake, author of The Postmistress)
Elif Shafak tells stories of great urgency, heart, and intellectual acuity. Honour is a powerful tale of family connection and heartbreak, offering us insight and delight in equal measure. This is a compulsively readable novel, an exquisite and deep rendering of the fullness of life. (Aurelie Sheehan, author of The Anxiety of Everyday Objects)
[Elif Shafak] joins writers such as Hanif Kureishi, Zadie Smith, Monica Ali, Aamer Hussein, Andrea Levy, Hanan al-Shakyh and Leila Aboulela, who offer us fictional glimpses of London's Others (The Independent)
An honour killing is at the centre of this stunning novel... Exotic, evocative and utterly gripping (The Times)
Lushly and memorably magic-realist... This is an extraordinarily skilfully crafted and ambitious narrative (The Independent)
The book calls to mind The Color Purple in the fierceness of its engagement with male violence and its determination to see its characters to a better place. But Shafak is closer to Isabel Allende in spirit, confidence and charm. Her portrayal of Muslim cultures, both traditional and globalising, is as hopeful as it is politically sophisticated. This alone should gain her the world audience she has long deserved (The Guardian)
Moving, subtle and ultimately hopeful, Honour is further proof that Shafak is the most exciting Turkish novelist to reach western readers in years (Irish Times)
Vivid storytelling... that explores the darkest aspects of faith and love (Sunday Telegraph)
Shafak treats an important, absorbing subject in a fast-paced, internationally familiar style that will make it accessible to a wide readership (Sunday Times)
Compelling (Mariella Frostrup)

It traverses the uneasy divide between East and West: a transplanted family from Southeast Turkey to London suburbs. The young family is going through difficult adjustment with the father trying to prove himself, if not at the work place, at gambling tables. The wife, Pembe, venturing out outside the safety of her home to supplement family income...
The storey telling was so riveting. I was racing through the pages looking for a different ending even though most of the events were already displayed. The umbilical connection between the twin sisters was heart- warming. I believe however that the author in the end took this connection too far.
A must read for those interested to learn about Turkey's efforts to cope with modernity and Westernization.
