I didn't read beyond a few chapters as the story didn't grab my interest. I guess the author was setting up a scene for the following events in the story, but I didn't have the patience to get involved in the family matters being described. The events I read about show that an aging grandmother, who lives just outside of Istanbul, has her grandchildren over for a summer visit. I enjoyed Barbara Nadel's books and I hoped I might find a similar story in Pamuk's writing.
