Selected Reviews

Although it is a subjective evaluation, I can affirm that, penned by Muharrem Buhara, “The Internet Monster” is one of the most entertaining juvenile books written in Turkish language. Ebru Akkaş - Excerpt from a book review in "Milliyet Kitap", the literary supplement of Milliyet, a major daily of Turkey

Contrary to the connotations of its name, “The Internet Monster” is not a science fiction novel. It is a mischievous and entertaining love story. It is about our hero “Sezai” falling in love with “Burcu”, the new girl in his class. Radikal A major daily of Turkey

The third instalment of “The Internet Monster ”, the highly anticipated and exciting juvenile series of the Turkish İş Bank Cultural Publications, has just come out. The new adventures of “The Internet Monster” will entertain its devoted followers of all ages. Pusula

Here comes another entertaining and funny book for you to read. In this novel, the author uses colloquial and witty language. Neither the plot nor the characterization is artificial. It makes us, the readers feel as if it could happen to any of us. (Indeed, the idea of going through such an adventure does not sound bad at all!) İş’te Genç
