The story of Adel and Kamil s journey from Istanbul to Los Angeles is a story I ve witnessed myself when in my early 20s I had the same dreams of leaving my country looking for a better life and opportunity in North America Anne Rae Vasquez describes the events in Adel s life so vividly, it feels like I am watching the story unfold right before my eyes I enjoy the subtle humour and cajoling between both friends Adel and Kamil as they try to find success in Los Angeles Of course like in any Turkish soap opera, nothing goes as they plan Adel finds himself deported back to Istanbul while Kamil is arranged to marry his cousin in Vancouver Canada Adel follows Kamil to Canada and the drama heats up when his evil Grand Uncle arranges him to marry his spoiled rotten cousin Yonka so that he can get his papers to stay in Canada If that isn t enough, Adel with his good looks and charm, woos his pretty English teacher Nora which causes further chaos with his wife, friends and family Anne Rae is able to bring realism and control the dramatic events while injecting enjoyable humour within the chapters The story is kept a quick pace, short chapters with a dash of authentic dialog Adel and Kamil speak English as an ESL student would make it a very interesting read Of course, the web series and clips of the feature film are a bonus which are available on Anne Rae s goodreads video page Click here to watch videos.I give the book 5 stars. A beautiful and intriguing story of two young men Adel and Kamil, who leave Turkey for a new life.The twists and turns of the plot from Los Angeles back to Turkey and on to Canada move with a fast pacein the tradition of the best soap operas The style of writing flows easily in the present, with extraordinarycharacters and wonderful dialogues I found this book very entertaining, sometimes sad and poignant sometimes extremely funny.The writer has perfectly captured the nuances and shades of those from different cultures creating a picture rich intextures, sights and sounds This novel is both clever and deeply emotional with complex situations that will make you wonderabout friendship, love, betrayal and redemption A great book. a Satisfying Quick Read Almost a Turkish Soap Opera is a timeless story filled with drama, duty, betrayal, love and friendship Simple in narrative yet contemporary, which makes it so appealing I found myself turning page after page to see what would happen next The book recounts the immigrant experiences of Adel and his struggle to make a life for himself while pursuing the immigrant dream The author includes many cultural details and highlights the relationships between family generations Nicely finished, leaving the reader satisfied I thoroughly enjoyed the book and am looking forward to the DVD movie In the meantime I will just have to enjoy the video clips on youTube.

I enjoyed this new novel by Anne Rae Vasquez another one of her great work I am a fan of the web series of the Almost a Turkish Soap Opera and now I am a fan of this book too Great job Anne Rae I am looking forward to all your upcoming work Anne Rae Vasquez s Almost A Turkish Soap Opera is about two friends, Kamil and Adel, who immigrate to the US from Turkey in order to make money and live their lives to the fullest They move to LA and get an apartment together and begin working as taxi shuttle drivers for family Adel, a ladies man who seems to have an easier time getting used to the US than Kamil does Adel isoutgoing, getting him better tips and allowing him to buy his own taxi van in order to start his own business, until his jealous cousin reports him to the Immigration Service and has him deported back to Turkey Soon after he goes back to Turkey, he leaves for Canada, where Kamil has been arranged to marry a Turkish woman After a short stay at Kamil s apartment, Adel soon realizes that this is not the life that he wants to live After his own arranged marriage to Yonka, his cousin, falls apart, he realizes that he wants to start a life with Nora, his instructor at the university and a woman he fell in love with in LA Yonka complicates things and he is soon married to another woman and Nora ends up with Kamil after his marriage is also annulled This is an easy read with a lot of adventures that Adel and Kamil experience together and Adel experiences alone, including his deportation from the US back to Turkey He has to balance his love for his family and his love for a life that truly fulfills him and makes him happy While it takes a while to get there, both men soon find all of the love and happiness that they have been seeking, both from their wives and from their families back in Turkey.This is a very entertaining book and I laughed at least one in each chapter at the adventures that Adel and Kamil experience While Adel thinks he has bad luck, Kamil thinks he finds himself in these situations due to his irresponsible and womanizing ways Kamil is the tamer of the two and his isinterested in honoring his family and living a good life in the eyes of others When Adel is arranged to marry Yonka, he knows his is in for the ride of his life, but he does not know how bumpy the ride will be until it affects his relationship with Nora Nora was meant to be with Kamil, and the complications between Yonka and Adel help both of them realize that they were not meant to be together This book was very much like a soap opera, but was also like a romantic comedy in many ways I enjoyed reading the book and turning the pages to see what was going to unfold in the next chapter I recommend this book for anyone who enjoys soap operas or romantic comedies, and those who just enjoy an easy ready that is entertaining and will keep you guessing. Almost a Turkish Soap Opera becomesinteresting as you read on As the drama goes into full swing, it s difficult to put the book down even for a short break The characters of this book are colorful perhaps many of them resemble the characters in some Turkish soap operas, though I haven t watched one.Action begins when the 25 year old Adel handsome, business savvy, and sometimes quixotic leaves his home in Istanbul and arrives at Los Angeles with his best friend Kamil He meets Nora, who visits LA from Vancouver, Canada, and then falls for her, but the meeting is cut short because Adel is manipulated by his grand uncle, a domineering, contemptible figure to Adel s family Mirwan, a pawn of Adel s grand uncle, reports Adel to the U.S immigration services Adel is detained and subsequently deported back to Turkey After a short stay in Istanbul, Adel heads for Vancouver where Kamil lives with his new wife Ayca There, at the cultural crossroads of the West and the Middle East, Adel, his cousin Yonka, Kamil, Nora, Ayca, and other characters intersect.Adel s presence and perhaps Kamil s as well in Vancouver was arranged by Adel s grand uncle, whose aim is to marry Adel to his beloved granddaughter Yonka, a cunning and egocentric woman who lives a life of decadence Adel plunges into the whirlwind of Yonka s schemes into the untenable and unconsummated marriage and of falling in love with Nora again Eastern and Muslim culture collides with Western ways and ideas and brings the characters together at times and pulls them apart at others To many Western readers, the culture of the Middle East, which still exercises arranged marriages along with dowries and marriages among cousins, could be strange But we also find Jane Austin s world strange, which is not that long ago, as well as some of today s American societies in which polygamy and other taboos are tolerated this book teaches us that we should understand the cultural differences in the world to live togetherharmoniously The book is scene oriented with relatively short chapters, and thus a page turner I thoroughly enjoyed it Adel s father is weak in front of his domineering uncle, but toward the end, he stands up against him and he and his poor family finally get what they deserve The novel has an unexpected and highly satisfying ending, with dramatic irony in a literary sense After reading the book I also watched snippets of the eponymous movie on the Internet, written and directed by Anne Rae Vasquez the book and the movie went together very well and the movie augmented my sense of the characters And I am looking forward to reading and seeingof the work by this talented writer artist in the near future. Almost a Turkish Soap Opera is a delightfully well written tale containing excellent plot twists and turns in true soap opera fashion, creating the suspense that encapsulates you as a reader and keeps you gripped until the very end It is written in a very simplistic narrative style that allows the story to flow easily and makes this a book that is extremely difficult to put down The superb character development throughout the book, in conjunction with the dramatic plot, allows the reader to really become emotionally involved with the main characters especially Adel.What I was particularly intrigued by, as a man born in Turkey myself, was the cultural accuracy that the Anne Rae has managed to include within the book I feel that the book encapsulates Turkish culture, creates characters that are genuinely believable and through the different settings of the book highlights the important cultural differences between life in Turkey and in the USA Canada, providing valuable insight for anyone interested in learningabout Middle Eastern culture, albeit if this information is provided as part of a dramatised soap opera style plot.The book follows the journey of main character Adel and his best friend Kamil from Istanbul, Turkey to Hollywood, USA in search of the land of opportunity and beautiful ladies However, reality soon hits home after arrival, that although this may be a new world, full of different opportunities, the truth is they are in a foreign land with hardly the money to pay for the cheapest of Motels and with no income to speak of What follows are several twists and turns that lead to the pair working illegally in the country for Kamil s cousin Mirwan, Adel falling for Nora Lee a Canadian visitor he meets whilst working and a subsequent whirlwind romance This romance is cut short due to Adel s deportation back to Turkey, instigated by his controlling and manipulating Grand Uncle Through his Grand Uncle s design Adel eventually heads of to Canada, where he plans for him to marry Yonka his beloved granddaughter Adel obliges and it is at this point where the drama of the book really unfolds.Excellent, fast paced and with a really apt and satisfying ending, Almost a Turkish Soap Opera really is a five star read and is one that I am extremely happy to endorse and recommend to anyone
