From the author of The Architect’s Apprentice and Honour, The Forty Rules of Love is Elif Shafak’s compelling and profound novel following Ella Rubinstein on a journey of self-discovery, examining life and love through Sufi mysticism.


Discover the forty rules of love…

Ella Rubinstein has a husband, three teenage children and a pleasant home. Everything that should make her confident and fulfilled. Yet there is an emptiness at the heart of Ella’s life – an emptiness once filled by love.


So when Ella reads a manuscript about the thirteenth-century Sufi poet Rumi and Shams of Tabriz and his forty rules of life and love, her world is turned upside down. She embarks on a journey to meet the mysterious author of this work.

30 reviews for The Forty Rules of Love

  1. Abhinaba Mukherjee (Verified Purchase)

    Loved the variety of stories blends together and the Sufi lessons. All about love. And truth and freedom. Sufi life and philosophy and of course Rumi

  2. Meher (Verified Purchase)

    Font size is extremely small and totally unreadable. I couldn’t read more than 3 pages in single sitting without straining by eyes. Better go for hardcover edition or library edition.

  3. Tejendra Khanna (Verified Purchase)

    It starts slow and mundane, but quickly becomes gripping, and truly transformative. I may write more later, but for now, that’s enough. Read it … and soak it up!

  4. Poonam Gupta (Verified Purchase)

    This book is two interleaved books – one a love story of a middle aged American woman, Emma, and the author of the book she is reading to write a review, Aziz. The other is the book she is reading about the Muslim poet Rumi and his relationship to a Sufi holy man, Shams.

    The two stories worked well together, moving forward together, working out their problems together, finishing together. I enjoyed both of them and was satisfied by both of them.

  5. Vanya Jaiswal (Verified Purchase)

    The two story lines in this book were equally interesting and I read on curiously to see where each would lead. And it’s the rare modern book that’s not afraid to relate seriously to religious questions.
