Publisher's Summary

Peri, a wealthy Turkish housewife, is on her way to a dinner party at a seaside mansion in Istanbul when a beggar snatches her handbag. As she wrestles to get it back, a photograph falls to the ground - an old Polaroid of three young women and their university professor. A relic from a past - and a love - Peri had tried desperately to forget. The photograph takes Peri back to Oxford University, as an 18-year-old sent abroad for the first time and to her dazzling, rebellious professor and his life-changing course on God. It also takes her to her home with her two best friends, Shirin and Mona, and their arguments about Islam and femininity and, finally, to the scandal that tore them all apart.

Awfully Narrated!

What disappointed you about Three Daughters of Eve?

It is a good book though I can't stand the narrater who reads all the Turkish dialogs in Indian accent. Nothing wrong with indian accent but is extremely different than turkish accent. It was so bad, I have to stop listing the book.


If you’ve listened to books by Elif Shafak before, how does this one compare?

I just finished listing The Architect's Apprentice by Elif Shafak which was quite good and the narrater done a great job on that book.


What didn’t you like about Alix Dunmore’s performance?

She has no idea about the turkish accent, she was reading all the turkish dialogs (all of the characters) with indian accent which made it so confusing and awful that I can't stand listing.


What character would you cut from Three Daughters of Eve?

none of them, nothing wrong with the storyline nor the book.

very beautifully narrated.

Liked the book as I do with all books of Elif Shafaq. The beginning is wonderful! however lacks the depth and magic of forty rules of love or architects apprentice. Doesn't do much justice to exploring its theme of Muslim women and their dilemmas either. No closure.
and yet because I like the politics of Elif Shafaq I found the book engaging.
