A book with multiple levels. And I would say one of the easiest of rushdies books to understand.
A fabulous must-read book for Rushdie's fans. Very different from his other books
I agree. I think that this book had no appeal. I felt like I was listening to Salman Rushdie babble.
I found this book boring and repetitive.
would this be a book that you would pick up and read?
I thought that this book was short but had the essence keeping the book interesting and a bit suspenseful.
“A book with multiple levels. And I would say one of the easiest of rushdies books to understand.”
I thought that the book was easy but the book was good overall.
Really enjoyable if you read it as a fairy tale.
i've never quite liked rushdie... always found his narrative style a bit hindi filmi but somehow i think he has given me enough reason to try reading him after this one & satanic verses... & yes it is a fairy tale bordering on the edges of indian/asian fantasy narratives... like that of ali baba & the forty thieves or arabian nights/alif laila... good read
btw... he apes marquez's aesthetics of magic realism... so, i understand, he's not a very difficult read...
I did not really enjoy the story or the way he delivered it.
this book was kinda confusinngg
I smell another 3D movie...it seems to be generating from this book's info page.
It's one of the most interesting & intriguing stories I've ever read!
