thought the ending was very tricky. Much like the ending of great expectations open to interpretation.
Sorry to see the series go. This one had all of the usual-food- sex despite the main character being a eunuch- the friendship of Yashim and the Polish ambassador. Wouldn't reccomend unless you were already familiar with the series.

A good way to visit Istanbul during these uncertain times. Also full of historic tidbits of the area and its inhabitants. The story line didn't grab me .
