Book 15/50 Midnight's Children


  1. I've tried reading this numerous times, based on rave reviews from people who love love love it...I can't get past the first few pages. Rushdie's style is NOT for me. I much preferred Rohinton Mistry's A Fine Balance for a gripping, heartbreaking, epic story with Partition as a backdrop.

    1. Thanks, Ness! I shall look out for it, and might read it after *finally* finishing King's History of New Zealand. < blush >

  2. I was gifted this book back in the good old days when my husband didn't really know my taste in books. So I have read it, but I don't remember a single thing about it - except for the fact that I hated it. I think when it comes to tales about the Partition, I'd much rather read Ice Candy Man, or one of Manto's short stories.
