Of God And Madness is the story of Adam, an emotionally troubled young man whose spiritual journey enables him to become a godly adult. Adam is a child of a Jewish woman (a palace concubine) and the last sultan of the Ottoman Empire. Raised in palatial surroundings by a French Catholic governess, Adam is exposed to the teachings of all three of the religions of Abraham, as he is tutored by an Armenian Christian music teacher, a Muslim imam, and a Jewish rabbi. In this intriguing saga, which spans the first fifty years of the last century, Adam comes of age during the tumultuous end of the Ottoman Empire while attempting to maintain his own precarious sanity. Ensnared by the havoc created by World War I in Istanbul and World War II in Paris, as well as the turmoil in Jerusalem during the final years of British rule, Adam struggles to make sense of God. This is the story of a man who began searching for God and ended up finding himself.

The era and the writer's ability to reflect the events of that age are bot fascinating. I enjoyed it a lot and could not drop it until I finished.
  • Nekora
In the end, this book made a profound spiritual point. The problem is that there were hundreds of pages filled with negativity to get there. The protagonist is filled with angst, which Karasu describes in excruciating detail. In the end, I think this book is very much like Paulo Coelho's The Alchemist, but Of God and Madness is a much more dry, intellectual, difficult read.
