“Hülya Aktaş presents the panorama of a life between country and city, ordinariness of city, in the simplicity and causality of country.” (A. Haydar Haksal)
“Impressionism is dominant in her works. We can’t observe incident narration. There is not any tension that surrounds us and pulls us in to the story and telling. The density of complaining doesn’t let any critical or prospective perspective, insight to sprout. This situation also doesn’t create any “tragedy mood” not even a little bit. Writer always keeps a sincere and accepted view of emotions such as love, mercy, hate, pain, desire, astonishment in comparing, emotional analysis and place descriptions in her stories and wants to make readers to feel it by this way.” (Mukadder Değirmenci)
