Hi, I am a Chinese college student and I never been to Turkey and I didn't know anything abut Turkey until I read the book Kar written by Orhan Pamuk. It was an interesting book. But while I was reading I didn't think well of Turkey because of what some muslims did. I heard that when the political novel(Kar) was published, many Turkish fried different parts of the book openly. Is that True?

Another thing I was thinking was: The things happened in the novel surely were not true, but it might reflect something about the religion, the culture and some some sides of society in Turkey. I will appreciate it if some people could tell something about it.

Mostly important, I want everybody to know that I don't have any prejudice about Turkey. Instead, I am always interested in any foreign country and I am open-minded(I think I am). Certtainly it is not careful,or stupid to learn about a country you never been to through reading a political novel like Kar and that;s why I am writing here to ask some Turkish or anyone who really knows a lot about Turkey to tell me more about Turkey.

I hope one day I could go to visit Turkey.

I also read the book Snow with pleasure which is written by Orhan Pamuk. I am not agree with Tunabige's comments to that novel. In my opinion each of us has different view of situation. There are a lot of Turkish writers or poets whos works are translated also into many foreign languages. If someone is interested in knowing more about Turkey or its culture he can find some of them. As far as I understand this forum which is called "What do you think Türkiye and Turkish people?" turns attention to the people who are not a Turkish citizen. So the possibility is given how the other citizen look at Turkey and its people. Then I think each of us would say just positively about own country independent from which country he/she is because  most of us dont like or are not ready to carry on self-critisizm.
