The Great Book written by azerbaijani novelist Cruelly honest, smartly cynical and neat writing offering an extremely intimate glimpse into the lifestyle of the families of the two famous Azerbaijani oil magnates Musa Nagiyev and Shamsi Asadullayev , as seen through the eyes of their grand daugher The parts describing how a different education and upbringing makes you feel as other in your otherwise traditional Azerbaijani extended family felt like a deja vu Some of her memories also made me smile, as I remembered myself dreading the wet kisses of distant relatives or being perplexed by the funeral stagings, where tears were shed as abundantly as giggles heard in between of sobs, with few questioning the sincerity of the grief I just wished Banine could remember her past and the ways of living in Azerbaijan at that time although some of what she describes still persists with less bitterness. Maybe it is due to poor translation, but most of the episodes of this novel make impression that the author didn t have any devotion to her motherland as well as her family and people around Banine actually confirms that at some point saying she s never had a feeling of attachment neither to the customs and traditions of Muslim community, nor to people around her And that s probably not just a tall talk, otherwise I can t explain why nearly everything is presented in exaggeratedly negative context characters, actions, lifestyle All in all, except for this unpleasant aftertaste , it s not the most boring and incurious book I ve ever read, therefore 2. Beautiful and honest. A great book describing the realities, cultural and traditional framework alongside with political events in Caucasus, especially in Baku in 1910 1920s The book is full of unexpected events and views of people, as a reader who lived in Baku for ages, I didn t expect that women were so fierce and open minded 100 years ago than they are now I loved references, as when Banine sees Andrey, she asks him if he is Balkonski, and Andrey asks him if she considers herself Natasha perfect reference to War and Peace I respect Banine, as a bourgeois she lost everything but accepted communism after the revolution Overall, this is the best book I have read from local literature.
