    1. Book Review The Rug Bazaar by Marylee MacDonaldIn The Rug Bazaar, Marylee MacDonald gives us two short stories set in contemporary Turkey Ms MacDonald nails the setting from the Boshorus seaside to the rug bazaars Cultural differences, sexual differences, and financial and power differences punctuate these stories.Two single American women are vacationing separately in Turkey Both are lonely, seeking refuge from the dullness of their lives in the States Angela s brother is in prison and she hasn [...]


    2. This slim volume packs a wallop The two stories within are set in contemporary Turkey, and in each, a vacationing American woman finds herself caught up with men who want from her than she s willing to give, and who give her less than she expects Where to draw the line when you don t know the culture is a central question The two stories here are quite different, close to mirror opposites in terms of the dilemma the lead character faces, but they complement each other MacDonald makes the landsc [...]


    3. I enjoyed these short stories.I can t explained why I liked them I just did Two different women, two different situation, but similar in way I recommend these stories for anyone I received any free copy of this from the author for a honest review.


    4. The Rug BazaarThis short two story book is very realistic Felt like I myself was in the back streets of Turkey.Finished, wishing there was to come Loved it.Book received through First Reads Thank you.



    5. I received this book free for an honest review This is a quick read, as other reviews have stated There are two short stories, both set in Turkey There were a few things that led me to a 2 star rating First, I do not like street language in a book I am reading unless I know in advance it will be there The f word was sprinkled liberally through both stories Second, I did not like the characterization of Turkish men I am married to a Middle Eastern gentleman and cannot imagine him doing or saying [...]


    6. A very unusual type of two stories of people in Instanbul I liked the bit of info on how women were treated and by treated as well as they could be in Turkish country I found this was not at all what had expected at all in this ebook And was very was appointed So this is why only a three star rating I certainly would not recommend this for any young audiences to read at all or a Christian or a devoted Catholic either who is an adult I had paid for this ebook and here is m honest review in return [...]


    7. I love these stories What are grand adventures What moves us in our travels These stories take us to Turkey, with two women who experience it very differently We all have dreams and demons that accompany, wherever we go.


    8. I won this book for free on First Reads I liked this book, but it was a bit disjointed The two short stories did go together, sort of, as they both took place in Turkey, but really lacked a beginning or a true ending They just started and then, stopped.
