Least important in the Dictionary of the Khazars: A Lexicon Novel by Serbian writer Milorad Pavić is the real existence of the Khazar people who, sometime in the 9th-Century, were lost in the annals of history. The highlight is precisely the book: a novel in the form of a dictionary, split into three parts, one for each majority religion: Christianity, Judaism and Islam, and exposes the sources of that faith, in connection with the Khazars and Ateh princess conversion, to one of the three religions. The narrative of this “lexicon novel” straddles wonderful characters and legends that are, and desencuentran in reality and in the dream, and weaving a web of stories, where the reader would be trapped. Whoever reads the Dictionary of the Khazars will not be the same at the end of the book.
