The most purely enjoyable novels of Rushdie's I have read or listened to. Much of the imagery, symbols and phrases are cliché, but the verve of the narrative and the sinuous descriptions of places and events is a true delight. If it wasn't for a rather abundant use of the word fuck, it would be a great children's book. Its certainly worth re-reading (or re-listening).The novel makes many historical references, which, for those with even a slight knowledge of history, are clearly nonsensical (the chronologies don't match); one must presume that it was intentionally written that way (the author studied history in university).
