The book seems too dramatic in parts, and I don't think Mustafa was drawn accurately. Also, the intended mixing of the two families was not to my liking: I would prefer them to not be related.
But then, the book has imageries that are close to my heart, the characters have temperaments I relate to.
The main plot and the initially intriguing 'missing links' are slightly predictable. Nonetheless, the book offers the much needed conversation about the Armenian genocide and state propaganda in general.
