  • Description
    A dazzling and intricate tale from Elif Shafak, Booker-shortlisted author of 10 Minutes 38 Seconds in this Strange World 'There were six of us: the master, the apprentices and the white elephant. We built everything together...' Sixteenth century Istanbul: a stowaway arrives in the city bearing an extraordinary gift for the Sultan. The boy is utterly alone in a foreign land, with no worldly possessions to his name except Chota, a rare white elephant destined for the palace menagerie. So begins an epic adventure that will see young Jahan rise from lowly origins to the highest ranks of the Sultan's court. Along the way he will meet deceitful courtiers and false friends, gypsies, animal tamers, and the beautiful, mischievous Princess Mihrimah. He will journey on Chota's back to the furthest corners of the Sultan's kingdom and back again. And one day he will catch the eye of the royal architect, Sinan, a chance encounter destined to change Jahan's fortunes forever. Filled with all the colour of the Ottoman Empire, when Istanbul was the teeming centre of civilisation, The Architect's Apprentice is a magical, sweeping tale of one boy and his elephant caught up in a world of wonder and danger. 'A gorgeous picture of a city teeming with secrets, intrigue and romance' The Times 'Shafak's most ambitious novel yet her best - generous and imaginative' Independent 'Exuberant, epic and comic, fantastical and realistic . . . like all good stories it conveys deeper meanings about human experience' Financial Times 'Fascinating. A vigorous evocation of the Ottoman Empire at the height of its power' Sunday Times 'Intricate, multi-layered, resplendent, vividly evoked, beautifully written' Observer 'Sumptuous, absorbing, moving' Independent on Sunday

    Good choice

    I was disappointed that there was no bookmark and the packaging could have been better. The book itself was in pretty good condition.

    Must buy!

    It's the first time I'm reading her book. And I liked it a lot. I'm mostly a non reader, but I like the books that take me to another world, that I have never seen. It does that.

    Good choice

    Elif Shafak's powerful writing spell, Ottoman Turkey and the Struggles of survival are the key elements that kept me going. However, it felt a little snooze fest in the middle but the books is a really precious find for historical fiction enthusiasts. No wonder, why the duchess of England put it into her list of fav. reads.

    Coming to Service so, the cover was dusty and there was no bookmark. Was greatly disappointed. Four stars are merely for Shafak here.
