It depends on what you are expecting. It is in both Europe and the middle-east, but it isn't a "European" or" western" country and is almost fully Islamic. It is a different world to those who have never ventured into that region. I have lived many places and traveled a lot, but I would have a rather large culture shock going there. I had a few Turkish friends and I knew a lot of Turks in Germany. They had a mass immigration to West-Germany after WWII, because they were hurting from lack of men. There is a decent amount that speak German, but I do not know about English. All the Turks I know spoke only German. They didn't know any English, but I didn't meet them in an English speaking country.
It depends on what you want. I personally would not want to live there. I would like to visit, but I am not too fond of the middle-east region. I prefer East-Asia, North-America, and Europe. I am not saying Turkey is a bad place, it just isn't for me.
