Not my thing, but I get the hype
This didn't live up to my expectations - or to its reputation for that matter.
I very much appreciated some beautiful quotes in this book and the whole philosophical search for the path to follow in life, the questions about God and existence. And I get that for its time it was very special and perhaps, innovative but most of it just got on my nerves. I didn't get what was so great about Zorbas and why he should be a role model. I was let down by the way women where treated and shown in the book (especially by Zorbas). They were depicted weak, depedent on men and I understand that's the general era the story is set in but I just couldn't deal with it - the whole "morality" Zorbas presented was getting on my nerves, to be honest.
