Heir lives for what's worth fighting for love love for freedom democracy love for life as we know it and love between two people. I adored the intimate portrayal of a first hand account of this prominent time in climate change history and really advocate reading this book I was very shocked by the events that took place in Turkey and was drawn to the subject matter as a result but I was so wonderfully surprised by the fact that we jolted from climate change to romance so effortlessly that it really brought the situation alive humanized it and served to subtly plant the seed of climate change issues in my mind in a new and crucial manner I loved the descriptive accounts of Turkey and the characterization A wonderful read if you are either an activist a romantic a realist or all

Love in the Time of Taksim is the a story of a jaded idealist who sets off on a uest to get a ring and sound the alarm about Ear. 25I read this book because I'm uoted in it Not only am I that vain but I paid money to do it Yes gasps of shock ARE appropriate Considering I get literally hundreds of books sent to me for free this was a pretty massive leapI told the author that I'd bought it and was going to start reading and she asked me to leave a review Fair enough I do get a certain sick joy out of reviewing books after all Of course what the author may not have realised is that not only do I do the odd bit of freelance editing but I am brutal I'm definitely someone you want reading your book before not after you publish itSo what did I think of the book then Well the pace wasn't too bad I was in Istanbul recently for the same reason as the author and was caught up in the riots though my experience involved riot police and tear gas rather than being safely in a different district I was trying really hard to like the book and was 5050 on it until I reached the part where I was uoted and the author had spelled my name incorrectly Not only that but a few paragraphs later she mentions the 'Black Sea' says what it's called in Russian and spelled that incorrectly as well Don't mess with my beloved Russian languageSadly these were just two examples of the complete lack of attention to detail present throughout the book There were spelling mistakes sentences with random words in them and the grammar was a nightmare Not uite she went good nightmare but just about every example of a 'perfect' tense was a mess I understand that the author speaks at least three languages fluently her book by the way acts as a rather brilliant CV but sadly that didn't translate Get an editorAnd the storyline What did I think of that Well the blurb suggests either 'cli fi' climate change fiction or 'romance' It wasn't really either The first section of the book talks about the author's struggles to get to Istanbul the middle is mixed and the last half is her hooking up with her host The constant non contextual pushing of an environmental agenda had me face palming while I simply didn't care about the 'characters' enough to care if they got together or not This book certainly isn't cli fi and neither is it a romance a romance has a beginning middle and a conclusion and has characters that we can either relate to or learn from Or even hate And what really drove me crazy was that every time I'd try to reach that state of 'suspended disbelief' so key to a good read the author would come smashing through the fourth wall with some kind of obvious statement or jokeThis book is like a seuence of diary entries than anything else an impression only reinforced by the use of dates as chapter headings As a diary I like it I might not read it because I can't relate to the main charactersauthor but I could appreciate it What I do like about the book is that it so perfectly captures one person's experiences at a set point in time and I love that I'm a big fan of diaries and blogs in generalAnother thing I did like is the author's observations about Turkey they were all very much spot on It's a place I've visited a few times and as someone who's been there she really brought the experience back to me One thing I always forget is how affectionate Turkish men are with one another to the point of friends holding hands in public and I loved little details like that being brought back to meI imagine that the author's friends and family would enjoy this book because they know her and appreciate her sense of humour but it wasn't for me I'm sorry I couldn't like it

    25I read this book because I'm uoted in it Not only am I that vain but I paid money to do it Yes gasps of shock ARE appropriate Considering I get literally hundreds of books sent to me for free this was a pretty massive leapI told the author that I'd bought it and was going to start reading and she asked me to leave a review Fair enough I do get a certain sick joy out of reviewing books after all Of course what the author may not have realised is that not only do I do the odd bit of freelance editing but I am brutal I'm definitely someone you want reading your book before not after you publish itSo what did I think of the book then? Well the pace wasn't too bad I was in Istanbul recently for the same reason as the author and was caught up in the riots though my experience involved riot police and tear gas rather than being safely in a different district I was trying really hard to like the book and was 5050 on it until I reached the part where I was uoted and the author had spelled my name incorrectly Not only that but a few paragraphs later she mentions the 'Black Sea' says what it's called in Russian and spelled that incorrectly as well Don't mess with my beloved Russian languageSadly these were just two examples of the complete lack of attention to detail present throughout the book There were spelling mistakes sentences with random words in them and the grammar was a nightmare Not uite she went good nightmare but just about every example of a 'perfect' tense was a mess I understand that the author speaks at least three languages fluently her book by the way acts as a rather brilliant CV but sadly that didn't translate Get an editorAnd the storyline? What did I think of that? Well the blurb suggests either 'cli fi' climate change fiction or 'romance' It wasn't really either The first section of the book talks about the author's struggles to get to Istanbul the middle is mixed and the last half is her hooking up with her host The constant non contextual pushing of an environmental agenda had me face palming while I simply didn't care about the 'characters' enough to care if they got together or not This book certainly isn't cli fi and neither is it a romance a romance has a beginning middle and a conclusion and has characters that we can either relate to or learn from Or even hate And what really drove me crazy was that every time I'd try to reach that state of 'suspended disbelief' so key to a good read the author would come smashing through the fourth wall with some kind of obvious statement or jokeThis book is like a seuence of diary entries than anything else an impression only reinforced by the use of dates as chapter headings As a diary I like it I might not read it because I can't relate to the main charactersauthor but I could appreciate it What I do like about the book is that it so perfectly captures one person's experiences at a set point in time and I love that I'm a big fan of diaries and blogs in generalAnother thing I did like is the author's observations about Turkey they were all very much spot on It's a place I've visited a few times and as someone who's been there she really brought the experience back to me One thing I always forget is how affectionate Turkish men are with one another to the point of friends holding hands in public and I loved little details like that being brought back to meI imagine that the author's friends and family would enjoy this book because they know her and appreciate her sense of humour but it wasn't for me I'm sorry I couldn't like it

    Entertaining true story about a funny well informed environmentalist who travels to Turkey to attend a Climate Reality conference amid anti government demonstrations Enjoyed her linguistic historic and TV cultural references and climate awareness tidbits And for some juicy stuff gets involved with a handsome Turk who saves kitties
