    A great read for those with an interest in religion and art!

    I had just finished studying Islamic art extensively in one of my art history classes (I am an art history major) when I began reading this book. This was a great read, but I feel it would be difficult to understand for those not interested in art and religion, and particularly for those who have little background in Islamic art. If you are, however, what a great book! The detail with which the author describes the process of illuminating manuscripts and the passion the miniaturists possess for doing so is incredible and moving. The plot is intriguing and just when you think you know what's going to happen, something surprises you.

    It brought back memories of my art history class in college.

    I really didn't know there was so much competition between miniaturists and European art. Orhan Pamuk's books are interesting and his characters are well developed.
