The Janissary Tree has to be one of the most interesting and informative books I have ever read. The story maybe fictional, extremely interesting and exciting, the author being an expert in Ottoman Empire history. I will read this book many times in the future, may even try some of the culinary delights the main character was cooking up. Just loved every moment, didn't want to put it down - nor come to the end.. Also looking forward to reading more of Jason Goodwin's works depicting this era and his journey from Poland to Istanbul.

Full of fascinating information about the rituals and customs in a not-so- long ago time and place, all of it new to me. Well-researched, with a strong story line. Sheds some light on the way things are still done in this part of the middle east. Worth reading.

An interesting story however my interest was probably piqued having just visited Istanbul. May not have enjoyed it as much otherwise. Still recommend it though
