Brigitte magazine sagt:

`Fatih Akin says of Selim Özdogan´s new novel: "If everyone read this book, the world would be a better place ? more considerate, more liveable, more tolerant.? Believe him!´

Süddeutsche Zeitung sagt:

`It has epic simplicity. Özdogan´s language is plain, but it carries with it the author´s sympathy with his characters, including the contradictory ones.´

Sächsische Zeitung sagt:

`The book´s muted poetry all the way to its quiet ending warms the soul like later summer wind gently stroking through hair.´

kreuzer magazine sagt:

`A mature, light, wise book´
