    Either did I. I totally agree with you. I think the characters would need a little bit of depth and originality. The best virtue of the novel is indeed to be quite a snapshot of the Turkish society...

    I read 'The Mayor of Casterbridge' and found it brilliant (there is a cheap edition from Penguin Popular Classics for about 3 pounds). I guess that his most popular novel is 'Far from the Madding...

    HCabret, I only want you to know that I totally disagree with the violent comments of Muhammad. I don't uphold his remarks either. I only say that the situation is too complicated as to be discussed...

    I want to say clearly that I have never meant to be insulting or violent. Mohammad, you shouldn't say such things. I advocate a peaceful debate.

    You shouldn't waste your time with him, it's like talking to a wall. The situation in Irak is too complex as to be poorly simplified in a couple of idealistic diatribes.

    Again, that's not the question---you are mixing wrongly too many concepts. The debate is about who is sovereign: the whole Spanish nation or the region of Catalonia. The concept of 'democracy' may be...

    That's not the question. You said that the whole region of Catalonia 'sought' independence, which isn't true.

    Catalonia is not seeking anything because it doesn't own a capacity of seeking; although, sadly, there are still nationalist people who keep on regarding societies as thick pieces of conscience. That...

    Unless you define being independent like being under French rule or succumbing to the haughty madness of tragically-fated poor Companys.

    Cataluńa is not a nation, nor its history or situation may be compared to those of Scotland or the Kurds. Cataluńa was never an independent kingdom---being part of the Crown of Aragón.

    I was referring to this:

    "Though she might not give, take what isn’t given.

    I think that it is a matter of shape, though I personally don't believe in censorship. As somebody said before me, you would have to ban the news either, take a look at the 'Daily Mail'.
