I think this cheap, desperate, and low way of selling a book is as much disgusting as prejudicing on any religion. View all 8 comments. Perhaps if I was more widely read I would have appreciated it more. I’m cool with that I read and forgot and reread and forgot again up unto about the fifth reading when I thought to myself that I might rate Midnight’s Children as one of the greatest books I’ve read, enjoyed the depiction of Benazir Bhutto as the Virgin Ironpants in Shame a great deal, but I also couldn’t read Shalimar rushdje Clown and thought that Grimus was excreble not even Rushie rated this first offering of his oeuvre.
However from the synopsis and reviews I have read of the book, I think it might translate into an excellent film, I just don’t think there is a director alive courageous enough to make it, nor a cast who would act in it, and I don’t blame any of them.

I’d say start with “Midnight’s Children,” but his other books may be good entry points as well; whatever you choose, don’t make “The Satanic Verses” your first Rushdie novel! Two Indian actors of opposing sensibilities fall to earth, transformed into living symbols of what is angelic and evil.

For all it’s hype, I was pretty disappointed with this book. If you are new to Rushdie, do yourself a favor and skip sataniwues book.

T The Satanic Verses is vastly imaginative and creative; it is a force to be reckoned with in the literary world providing you can actually get through it. I hated itI didn’t understand it ,I couldn’t even complete it,It’s really aalman disaster. It’s horribly unreadable, and just goes to prove my firm belief that people who protest books and movies rarely actually read or see them.
His magical realism makes me feel like I’m watching what I imagine an Enya music video would look like. Rusdie cutesy at best. I also think that the book would have never been have read by as many people as it has been were it not for the controversy surrounding it. View all 3 comments. Her entrance was when I began to lose interest and think “this whole thing is not going to pan out in the end, is it?
It drew upon such a huge wealth of myths, religion and stories that it became so hard to follow. I’m falling out of an aeroplane!
