The Forty Rules of Love by Elif Shafak

27 Mar

What do you get when you mesh two tales pleasantly?
The Forty Rules of Love!

This novel starts with Ella, an unhappily married American wife, who’s life changes as she reads ‘Sweet Blasphemy’ as part of her assignment for the literary agent. Sweet Blasphemy is a novel centered around the 13th century, about Shams a spiritual instructor and his encounter with a Sufi named Rumi.

The Forty Rules of Love is one of the most educational, spiritual book I have ever came across. In this appealing novel, Shafak managed to demonstrate that spirituality and religion are not distinctive in a provocative yet sophisticated manner.
